5 out of 5 eggsWonderful drive

Pros: Bought this to stick in my ASUS laptap to replace the old 5400 to speed things up a bit, its been in this laptop for about a year and a half now and have no complaints. I have been loyal to Western Digital drives for years and have only had one dud sent to me by newegg, which they replaced promptly. Can't go wrong with this drive.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWD support

Pros: Other than Newegg does not support RMA after 30 days from purchase and the dead drive itself, the service on the Western Digital 800 support line was excellent.

I just spoke to the WD support guy and he RMA'd the drive immediately and also included UPS shipping, so no cost to me other than some lost productivity.

Added a couple of eggs for that.

Cons: died too soon. boo.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks until it dies too soon

Pros: Fast, quiet, low power consumption, easy installation

Cons: It died an early death.

Purchased in Dec 2012 and installed in a Dell 1525 laptop to replace a Seagate 120GB drive (which was used heavily for more than three years and still works swell). As for the WD, I probably only got a true 6 months of use out of this device. Very very disappointing. Fortunately, I back up regularly to an external HD, so I didn't lose too many valuable docs.

I put the Seagate 120 back in the laptop, so at least I can continue to work, although I consider my machine crippled with the tiny HD.

Other Thoughts: Back up your stuff, people. You don't think losing your stuff could happen to you, but it will, and almost always at the wrong time.
