4 out of 5 eggsGreat price for solid performance

Pros: Grabbing this drive at $60 was a great value for me. Needed this to fix an ailing laptop for a friend and I always feel good buying the black series of any WD drive. Added bonus at this price point at getting a 16 MB cache.

Cons: None to speak of. This type of part is great for keeping your laptop running.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: solid drive and good price
I am using it as a second drive on my laptop for data and running all my programs off a SSD Samsung 840 as my main drive.
Great setup if you have 2 drive bays to save $ not buying a huge SSD drive.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsWorks, just noisy

Pros: Decent speed, and everything you'd expect from a WD drive.

Cons: Noise?

This is probably the noisiest 2.5" drive I've ever used... I bought this to replace the junk hitachi Toshiba loves so much and the main thing I noticed immediately was hearing the read head move around... the clicking... just... ever present. Eh...

Other Thoughts: Subtracted one star from noise... a minor thing really... but I've never had a WD drive chatter so much in a 2.5" format.

For laughs I ran several break in/reliability tests and it passed long, short, whatever I threw at it... drive works fine, so doubt the noise is a fault.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Storage for the price

Pros: economical, good warranty, works as advertised

Cons: not as reliable as expected

Other Thoughts: This is the third WD2500BEKT that I have had (two were in the laptop I'm doing this review on). The other two failed in less than 3 years. They were in high use laptops and one was replaced by WD under warranty. So all in all, they are a good drive for the money.

1 out of 5 eggsRMA Failed As Well

Pros: Should be a great drive.
Western Digital's best in this class.

Cons: 2nd failure in a row. See my review about a week ago.

Same indication fails Extended Diagnostic with too many bad sectors.

Note: I have been a Western Digital user for at least a decade, can't say I would believe this if it weren't happening to me.

.

Other Thoughts: Drive arrived on time and packed nicely with WD black end caps and in a sealed anti-static bag, but the delay of having to send back the first drive, wait for Newegg to check it, and then ship another drive out has me seriously late with my customer. Now the replacement is bad, I am RMA'ing it to Western Digital on advanced replacement to try and shave some time, as well as get a known tested drive.

Newegg this will be 20 dollars in shipping fees plus aggravation, if you wish to make up some of that with a gift certificate it would be nice, you know my email address 8-)

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Omni, we would like to apologize for any possible inconvenience this may have caused you. It is unfortunate that you experienced a DOA drive, as our drives are all rigorously tested to ensure they are in good working condition before leaving our warehouse. We would like to assure you that what you have experienced is something abnormal, and if you require any follow-up from us regarding your current RMA or overall experience, please contact us and mention this Newegg review and your RMA.
