My old hard drive went down on the Thursday night, ordered the new one from BT on the Friday morning, it arrived on the Monday morning and was fitted and working by Monday afternoon (even with my limited knowledge). Everything seems to be working great. No complaints!
5* Great Stuff!

Great Purchase, Firstly thought it is faulty and it did not start while attached to SATA connectors - I was wrong - it was just so quiet! =] Very quick access time, fully compatible, made a system partition - set up Vista 32bit on it in 14 minutes, (Vista score - disk data transfer rate = 5.9 !!! WoW) Worth the money that is for sure - under £40 - you cant go wrong with that one, Seagate and BT rules, happy customer! thank you BT team,
5* Awesome!

I purchased this drive as a different make from the previous two Western Digital Sata 500GB HDD and was amazed to find the third SATA 500GB HDD DOA Too. (more than just coincidence?)
