1 out of 5 eggsWas OEM HDD and failed before 2 years

Pros: The drive was quite, I have to give them that.... but this is where the "Pros" Stop

Cons: So this HDD came with my HP over 2 years ago... not even a year after I bought the PC I started having issues with this HDD... after dragging it for several months.. The computer stared having all type of loading issues and crashes ( I restored the OS at least 10 times). I am a advance PC user so I opened the laptop up and cleaned it up made sure there was enough air flow and such... then finally I realized that it was in fact my HDD. I replaced it and sure enough all of the issues were fixed. I paid a lot for this laptop and was very disappointed in HP for using this HDD... Don't waste you time and money. This HDD is pure junk. At this point it doesn't even boot. You usually expect longer HDD life then 2 years. I ended up getting a Toshiba and I was very happy with it.

Other Thoughts: I would say anyone interested in this WD HDD... save your money and buy a different brand. This HDD is not safe for your data, and could fail anytime.

1 out of 5 eggsIt did work

Pros: when the drive is working it works fine, but there are some problems with it as it age's

Cons: so the drive just stopped working one day and was making some bad sounds. since mine was out of warranty i opened it up to see what went wrong. so when it tried to part the heads there is this plastic guide to allow the heads to move off the platter when it powers off. good idea... but the plastic guide was a bad design and make of cheap plastic. so when it tried to park the heads on day. the plastic was slightly DE-formed and the heads pushed down on the platter rather then up... and well data by by.

5 out of 5 eggsI really like this product

Pros: I love this hard drive. I bought this for my laptop, and now the laptop has failed and this hard drive is still rocking. It now sits in my desktop hardly making noise as some hardware can.

Cons: I haven't found one, or one hasn't come up yet.

Other Thoughts: I do not have any additional thoughts at this time.

4 out of 5 eggsBackup HDD

Pros: One of the three drives stopped spinning-up after 2.5 years with an 11-day cycle (backing up every 11 days). We take these drives to the bank for off-site backup.

Cons: These are relatively slow drives. We have a couple of 500GB 7200RPM drives that are ready earlier in the day

Other Thoughts: We backup over 300GB of data on a daily basis, then zip it up with a password to one of these HDDs. It has worked with very few problems for years. The more data we save the longer it takes, but we do get a full daily off-site backup.

I will be replacing the failed drive with a 500GB 7200RPM drive.

We previously thought that an overnight backup to a 5400RPM drive was adequate - but since the backup has grown significantly, 7200RPM has proven to be a better choice.

1 out of 5 eggsDies After Almost 3 Years

Pros: 320GB space
Western Digital in general is a great company

Cons: This hard drive was found in my MSI CR600 laptop. After three years of use, I was hearing unusual clicks coming from it. That is the click of death and the worst death when it comes to hard drives. I knew the end was coming so I had to back it up in a hurry.

Other Thoughts: Western Digital is good, but this hard drive is a miss for them.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: working good so far with a very high smarts LLC count... going to crash first or later

Cons: Makes high clicking noise when goes in idle to park the heads since day1. Really annoying as it happens after 8secs of inactivity. Avoid WD drives. Their intellipark 'feature' =P is the worst nightmare ever.

Other Thoughts: Tried with wddidle3 - /d /s300 - nothing worked. Drive becomes irresponsible and w7 wouldn't even start. Replacing the original APM configuration fixed the issue =P

WD doesn't care.. and so people should care avoiding to buy this products.

2 out of 5 eggson my 3rd

Pros: -RMA process is good
-plenty of space for multiple OS installs

Cons: -not reliable
-5400RPM is slow

Other Thoughts: This is a good storage drive, not a good OS drive. I am just now sending in my 2nd drive to get my 3rd RMA of this model. Western Digitals RMA process is simple and fast, so that's the only reason I gave it 2 stars! The drive is in a laptop, so of course it gets moved around a bit, but this is 3 drives in 4 years -- unacceptable track record.
