Great for second HD in a DVD replacement caddy
Toshiba L200 1TB Mobile 2.5 Inch SATA 5400rpm Internal Hard Drive
I bought this drive to use as a second drive in my laptop through the use of a hard drive caddy that replaces my DVD drive since I rare to never need the DVD and is a very easy swap if I do need it. I purchased this drive around the early part of Dec and thus far has performed very well. The extra storage is nice to have and since the main drive is coming up on the 5 year mark I have moved much of what was on the main to this drive. I have externals as well but is much nicer to just have it on board and not using up a USB port and being just another thing to worry about.
This drive is very quiet, transfers between drives are quite fast. Time will tell of course as my computer is on 24/7 except a once a week reboot or install reboot.
I recommend this drive as a cheap storage drive or even a main drive replacement if the 5400 RPM is of no concern to you. (my main is 5400 as are most included in new laptops unless you pay extra) Any drive 500 gig or more I highly recommend partitioning. A search for partitioning software will give plenty of easy to use options. On my main I have a partition just for Windows and I store on the others. This way if windows ever needs to be reinstalled fresh you will not lose anything on the other partitions so long as reinstalling to same partition Windows was on in the first place.

Haven't gone wrong with Toshiba yet.
By Ash Housewares
Typically dependable Toshiba laptop drive. Doubled capacity for a fraction of the price from just 5 years ago. I'm happy as is the friend, a limited user, for whom it was purchased.

but good software programs that are not compatible with Windows 10
By Edwin J. Burk
Used this hard drive to upgrade my Toshiba Satellite C655-S5212 and reload Windows 7 so I can use a number of older, but good software programs that are not compatible with Windows 10. I am quite happy with the results and would recommend this hard drive to anyone who wishes to enhance their computers capability.
