Categories > All Laptop Hard Drives > Western Digital > Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD2500BEVE 250GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache PATA 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Good choice to revive an old laptop
Pros: Reliable and quiet. Runs cool too.
Cons: Only 250 GB capacity.
Other Thoughts: This drive has been working on my work laptop which is a 2003 model Toshiba Satellite S1950-801 for abt 3 years. The motherboard is based on the Intel 845 chipset which was released in Jan 2002.

I work as an officer on board ocean-going merchant vessels, and this drive has been through a lot of engine produced vibration and vessel listing 15 degrees to port or starboard and still works fine.

It is a great choice to revive your old laptop for use at work. It can run MS Office, Firefox, Acrobat etc very well. Highly recommended.

A word to the wise: If you plan to have your laptop run 24/7, use a laptop cooling pad.

Highest temperature noted for the drive was 41 C/106 F in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, at an ambient of abt 38 C/100F. In non-desert temperatures, the drive runs at about 32 C/90 F. Checked with CPUID Hardware Monitor.

I hope this post helps ppl.

Categories > All Laptop Hard Drives > Western Digital > WD Red WD10JFCX 1TB IntelliPower SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" NAS Internal Hard Drive -Bulk

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Worked excellently until the head hit the platter.
Pros: This was purchased as a replacement for a failed laptop hard drive, and It worked quite well for about three months, with fast boot times and quiet operation.
Cons: While installing, there was an odd problem where this drive and the laptop dvd drive would not work at the same time, which I was unable to resolve, and I beleive was a unique problem and not this drive's fault. After about three months of operation, the horrific sound of the drive head scratching the platter heralded the complete loss of the drive and all data. There was no discernable reason for this, and the computer was not even in use at the time. Very dissapointed.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Good Value
Pros: I have had consisitently good results from Western Digital hard drives. Years of trouble free operation. I purchased two of these drives from NewEgg during a recent promotion at a great price. As always NewEgg shipped very well packaged and the drives arrived intact.
Cons: None
Other Thoughts: These aren't as fast as an SSD, or even some other HDD offerings, but they make great data storage drives. I'm using mine in a system with two SSDs as primary drives. The combination of capacity, lower power usage, and reduced heat generation are also a plus. Solid value at the promotional price.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great PS4 upgrade
Pros: Love it! GREAT for the ps4, especially if you play a game and do certain things often, they will be cached into the NAND flash part of the SSHD.
Cons: None. Worth the price ! Toshiba is a great company, I prefer Tosh over Seagate. Personal preference.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Works as intended.

Cons: None

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Best Compromise
Pros: This drive is fast, quiet, and there's plenty of space for that awesome *adult* collection you have acquired over the years.
Cons: It doesn't come with lube.
Other Thoughts: Seriously, I think this is a great drive and it is the best compromise when there are size restrictions.

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Dead in less then 90 days
Pros: It worked when I first got it. I ordered from newegg 8/6/2014
Cons: Dead in less then 3 months..
unbootable and data is lost.

Just got off the phone with Western Digital support so case is developing.
Other Thoughts: I have mixed feelings on this since I am in the grey area with Newegg as its over 30 days, and Western Digital Support line is like Running through hoops.

Categories > All Laptop Hard Drives > Seagate > Seagate Momentus ST160LM003 160GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Bought two. 50% failure rate.
Pros: Bought two to upgrade two D630 laptops to Win7. These laptops are for my two boys schoolwork. One HD is still working but the other one died yesterday after only 6 months. Dead. Would not even spin up, just gets hot. Since it would not even spin up I could not get any of the schoolwork off of it. My backup was 6 months ago. Bummer.
Cons: 50% failure rate. Do not recommend.

Pros: Installed easily enough.
Cons: Within 2 weeks, began experiencing hard crash to Blue Screen of Death more and more frequently. Had it checked out by a pro; indications of surface damage to the platter, numerous bad sectors and weak sectors, and a remaining lifespan estimated at 52 days.
