      I bought a second hand laptop off Ebay but after 5 months the deadly blue screen appeared after a screeching sound from the HDD area. Fortunately, I immediately found a replacement MK6021GAS. I was surprised to find a Toshiba in a Dell laptop but after a few checks found that it was the norm.After spending 3 weeks loading all the drivers via a very slow desktop computer and very little knowledge of what I was doing, the new hard drive went the way of the first. Looking at a few forums it would seem that this is a common fault. I am now wondering if it's worth buying another hard drive to allow me the luxury of a spare laptop as I have since bought a new one. If there is a compatible one I may seriously consider it but I doubt I'll buy another Toshiba MK6021GAS.

      Think twice.

      Toshiba MK6025GAS - Hard drive - 60GB, 2.5", 4200 RPM, 2MB buffer.

      2 of these failed!
      First one lasted 15months, and ended up giving noises like chainsaw. Then I brought second one, which lasted exactly 12.5 months- and failed 15 days after warrany expired.
      The notebook (and 2nd drive in it) spent most of the year on my desk.
      Both cases are just too fortunate for the manufacturer to be a coincidence.
      Hit rate 2/2 = 100%. Toshiba drives sucks!
      The drive was not cheapest one, so I expected I will get the quality, but got sh*t instead.

      Will never buy a hdd without 4 year warranty at least.

  • Product Details

    The MK-6021GAS is the world's first 60GB 9.5mm high hard disk drive in a 2.5-inch form factor using 30 gigabyte storage capacity per platter technology.

    In addition to the immense data storage ability of 60GB, this hard disk drive features fluid dynamic bearing (FDB) motor technology for diminishing ambient drive noise and low average seek time for faster data access. The combination of low power consumption and high capacity makes the MK-6021GAS ideal for multi-functional mobile PCs and non-PC applications.

    The MK-6021GAS is also one of the first drives from Toshiba featuring lead-free soldering and halogen-free printed circuit board (PCB), confirming Toshiba's commitment to the global environment.
