The Hitachi Travelstar 7K60 is a modest product for laptop owners who wish to back up their files. This provides them with an internal 60 GB hard drive that is designed tough. This Hitachi hard drive operates on several interfaces, including DMA/ATA-100, ATA-100 and ATA/ATAPI-6. It is intended for use on personal computers and will not function on Mac systems. This internal 60 GB hard drive contains an 8 MB buffer size and spins up to 7200 RPM. Data on the Hitachi Travelstar 7K60 will transfer at rates of 100 Mbps externally and 63 Mbit/s internally. The Hitachi hard drive has a form factor of 2.5-inches x 1/8H and a 10 ms seek time. It is on also the quiet side, operating at 35 dB. In terms of massive upgrades, the Hitachi Travelstar 7K60 is better served as a fix for a faulty hard drive or an addition to ones current hard drive setup. The device itself is fairly small, with its 0.37-inch height, 2.76 inch width and 3.94 inch depth. This product weighs 0.22 lbs. Minimize

Author's Review
My Epinions Philosophy
When I make a purchase, epinions is one of my most valuable resources for non-biased experiences and information. When I come here to research a product I read all of the reviews and the product specifications and details on other sites as well. You will find that my reviews try to focus on my personal experiences and research discoveries that I think are not easy to discover through pre-purchase research. I will also highlight any differences between actual product features and performance and what the vendor's marketing states or implies. This means that my review will not spend a lot of time on basic specifications, procedures or stock commentary that you can read in other places.

My Purchase
I purchased two of these from CDW for 247 each.

VMWare and Photoshop
I have two of these drives always loaded in my Toshiba Tecra 9100 (http://www.epinions.com/content_117073284740). I use this configuration primarily for speedy response from VMware while doing technical instruction to a class. Having VMWare run off the second drive prevents it from competing with the drive the operating system is loaded on.I have not had the heat problems that others mention - perhaps this is an issue with the design of the laptops themselves? I did not really do a comparison of heat before and after the drive change. Obviously running two of them I am not the type of user who is away from a wall plug for two long - but when my battery was new I could get 1.75 hours running both drives and now that batters are older I can still get 1.25 hours.
