Atrocious performance, almost all the old HDDs on my old laptops dating from before 2016 have better performance and don't freeze up the system as much as this laptop.

i've seen two of these (different revisions) die in friends' laptops. i haven't dealt with a lot of dead hard drives, so to see two of the same model die is not good news. even when they run, they're darn slow.
