Our users who handle large, complex spreadsheets complain of hangs, lockups, CPU pinning, and Excel 2011 just being uncooperative. Move to Windows, the problem vanishes.

The controller may have an odd quirk that one drive is ok with. The old drive, it's probably 5400rpm, probably SATA2 or SATA1. Maybe the problem becomes evident on newer drives with SATA3.
