With my laptop's current 5400RPM hard drive, games load quite slow, specifically call of duty during the pre mission cut scenes, it gets to the point were i cant hear the breifing properly because it is skipping. Would this hard drive improve performance (ie no skipping videos or slowish loading) if i connect it to my laptop's eSata port and play games from it? How reliable is the brand?

Also, gameplay is not affected just the loading, but its irritating to have a video skip every 5 secs.....

I have never heard of the brand. And newegg doesn't tell you what kind of drive it is using.

But, yes. A direct ESATA connection would significantly speed things up.
