Features

Features
Quiet - In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD's exclusive WhisperDrive combines state-of-the-art seeking algorithms to yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market. These algorithms also optimize the way a drive seeks for data, which significantly improves power consumption. So now silence (and longer battery life) is golden.

Reliable and rugged - WD's ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks. WD's SecurePark parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down, and when the drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface resulting in improved long-term reliability due to less head wear, and improved non-operational shock tolerance.

Fast and efficient - With 5400 RPM spin speed and 12 ms access time and up to 3 Gb/s SATA interface speed, even the most demanding customer will appreciate the performance achieved by WD Scorpio Blue drives.

Tested for compatibility - We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab and Mobile Compatibility Lab to give our customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems.

1 out of 5 eggsIt failed within a week

Pros: Price was right.

Cons: Reliability left a lot to be desired.
Maybe this was a re-manufactured drive. It failed within a week; could not be accessed in Windows Explorer or via Disk Management Console. It could not be accessed via an USB-to-SATA/IDE bridge adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: It works as described.
An alright price, though if you shop around you can get more gigs for around the same price, but I've found WD to be pretty reliable, where every other brand has failed me.

Cons: It's not made of gold.

...Then again that would make it pricey.

Other Thoughts: I used this to replace a faulty *cough*Fujitsu*cough* laptop hard drive and after trying to fix this laptop for the third time, I finally got a compliment from the owner on how smooth the computer runs.

I could have paid an extra $2 and got a 160gb samsung drive, but I trust WD more.

Oh, and I suppose one could upgrade their xbox hard drive with this. I didn't, as I already have a Western Digital 250gb plugged into it. Which I use to retrieve videos and music from my 1.5tb WD Caviar Green which has also managed to run without fail for quite a while now.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Quiet, Cheap, and Cool

Pros: - Fast drive. I honestly can't tell any difference between this 5400rpm drive and the 7200rmp drive that it replaced.
- Quiet. This drive doesn't make any noise that is noticeable to me.
- Cheap. For me, the price point was great, as I didn't need a huge hard drive in terms of space.
- Cool. This drive, while still hot, runs considerably cooler than my previously installed 7200rpm drive.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive to replace a 7200rpm drive that had gone bad. The issue on the previous drive seemed to be chronic overheating that led to drive degradation and eventual failure. Using SpeedFan, which can measure hard drive temperatures, I noticed an immediate reduction in temperature. This should hopefully result in a longer lasting hard drive (I also purchased the VANTEC LapCool 2 Notebook Cooler on Newegg which should help as well).

Pros: Super quiet comparing to other 2 drives I've owned. You can hardly hear anything. Fast drive, great price too.

Cons: none so far since it's been 2 weeks since I bought it.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is always the place I count on when buying the computer's stuff.

Newegg rocks !!!

5 out of 5 eggsGood Price

Pros: Good product for the price! Purchased this to install in a home web server. I passed on using a SSD in my server and purchased this instead because of the low cost. This hard drive hasn't disappointed me yet, it is extremely quiet and seems to be pretty quick.

Cons: None that I have found yet.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet, does not get too hot. Great replacement for 4 year old laptop now running windows 7.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Got it on a good deal that saved me some money, I could have spent twice as much and purchased a faster drive with more 2-3 times the capacity but this is a good price for the gigs.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: Replaced my XBOX 360 Pro 20gb drive with this guy, so I can't comment on speed, noise, etc too much. All I know is that once I got the firmware flash right, the drive has been happy and quiet.

Cons: Didn't get a 250gb, but that's my fault.

Other Thoughts: The process was a little trickier than I envisioned, but now I've got more storage than I need. These WD notebook drives work out great.
