5 out of 5 eggsWestern Digital is King

Pros: I bought 2 of these drives in 2011 to replace my two laptop drives. Had them in raid 0 for the longest time and then I built a desktop computer and swapped them in while running at raid 0. Never had any issues. Bought some WD blues because of their 1TB capacity, I'm still using these right now in raid 1 for a linux build.

Cons: Capacity, but seriously, if you are on a budget these will do.

5 out of 5 eggsGood HDD

Pros: Fast and quiet. Works as advertised.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I have always had good luck with Western Digital and Seagate HDD's. I purchased this one to replace an SSD I put in a Dell Latitude D630. D series Latitudes do not work well with SSD, even with Win 7 on them. The D630 only has SATA I and this scales down well. I have not had any performance or functional issues so far. Bonus- The drive doesn't run nearly as hot as I anticipated either.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Work good till it died. Seemed a little slow but it worked.

Cons: Drive Mfg 3/1/2012, purchased 5/6/2012, and died 2/13/2013. Didn't get a year of service from it. Contacted WD to see about replacement. Registered as purchased from NewEgg Online store, so I was told there was no warranty to go see them. NewEgg has their standard 30/60/90 day warranty policy which I have not issue with at all. However to purchase from a company like WD and find out they don't even stand behind their product for 12 mos from date of purchase. Needless to say I won't be buying WD products anymore.
