This is an excellent drive. Fits perfectly in a macbook pro 13 unibody. Improved a lot start up and program loading times compared to the stock drive. Very quiet for a 7200 rpm drive. I replaced a momentus xt 500gb 7200 rpm. The momentus xt is a bit faster and has a bigger storage size but reduces a lot battery life and is very very noise with significative vibration. This hitachi is like you inside a quiet reading room and the seagate momentus xt is like a rock concert. I think that this hitachi may be the quietest 7200 rpm out there. Not as quiet as the z5k500 series and far from a SSD (which is silent and much faster) but is 10 times cheaper compared to one with similar size.

very satisfied!
These drives are listed as having a self encryption and a enhanced availability option: instead I received a model without those features. What I received was HTS723232A7A364.

This number can be parsed with the information from Hitachi's website below. Clearly not as advertised,

H = Hitachi
T = Travelstar
S = Standard (vs E for Enhanced Availability)
72 = 7200 RPM
32 = Full capacity--320GB
32 = Capacity this model, 32 = 320GB
(25 = 250GB, 16 = 160GB)
A = Generation code
7 = 7mm z-height
A3 = Interface, SATA 3Gb/s
6 = 16MB cache
4 = No encryption (0 = No BDE hardware,
1 = Bulk Data Encryption,
5 = TCG Opal Encryption)
I bought this drive to increase storage in my five-year-old laptop. The drive is thinner than most and required careful alignment when installing it to ensure the connectors lined up properly (it wasn't recognized by the computer on the first couple of tries). I chose this model over the 320 GB Western Digital Scorpio Black to avoid the Advanced Format issue, since I am still using Windows XP. I restored a backup of my old drive to this one and everything works great. The drive is slightly louder than the original, barely audible Hitachi Travelstar 60 GB drive (also 7200 RPM) but it doesn't really bother me since it is a relatively low-pitched sound.
