Greetings forum members. The current hard drive in a laptop has become overburdened and needs a replacement. Also, S.M.A.R.T. is reporting multi zone error rates at 292101227. A low level format could help, and I have data backups, and I think a new drive would be a good upgrade. The new drive used for the upgrade is the Seagate ST1000LM014 http://www.seagate.com/internal-hard-drives/solid-state-hybrid/laptop-solid-state-hybrid-drive/?sku=ST1000LM014 I would like to know if anyone has been using this generation of hard drive and to give their experience. This drive looks like it would be good to migrate to a future laptop, as well. Usually I use older laptops and upgrade them, which means the newer laptop would most likely not be current. I have a habit of using old machines and upgrading them.
