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.
