1 out of 5 eggsDo NOT buy

Pros: Its PATA and still available

Cons: The drive I received is clearly a drive taken from an existing laptop and resold, it still contains a bunch of data from a Panera Bread employee!

This tells me they did not test the drive even, simply pulled it out of a machine and resold it.

Other Thoughts: You have no idea how long this drive is going to last, the seller is reselling used drives and not even properly refurbishing OR testing them. Proper test procedures would NOT result in the drive arriving with someone else's data on it!

5 out of 5 eggsReliable Drive

Pros: It just works. No hiccups so far.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: WEI rating whit this drive 5.9 in Windows. Just a notch more noisy that Seagate drives but is reliable. I think that is most important - data security.

3 out of 5 eggsworked great for a year

Pros: good performance, quiet , good warranty support from WD

Cons: Drive failed in less than one year .

Other Thoughts: Computer would not boot. Hard drive test in bios indicated failed drive. Didn't turn into a brick however. Drive still runs and was able to recover most of the data.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HDD

Pros: Great HDD! Love WD! This is a true virgin drive. Pluged it into my Dell Inspirion 1000 and the Dell service disc reconized it was not formatted. Re-installed windows. Now boot-up time and searching time is drastically reduced. 5400 RPM screams past the old HDD that came with the rig. Whisper quiet.

Cons: None. Nothing. Nada. Zippo. Ziltch.

2 out of 5 eggsBad Batch?

Pros: The hard drive was securely packaged. Great Newegg customer service.

Cons: The drive was DOA; unrecognized by BIOS and clicking.

Other Thoughts: I can't give Western Digital one star because I like their products, and I didn't get the chance to measure the performance of this drive. Judging from other reviews it seems there may be more than a few non-functioning drives in this batch and I was one of the unlucky customers to receive one. In any case, I called Newegg immediately and they emailed me the RMA and a return shipping label within minutes.
