5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong

Pros: Good product, easy to install.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: After having my original HD in my laptop die without notice, I purchased this as a replacement. Although I've build desktops in the past, this was my first time working on a laptop. While replacing a HD isn't a monumental task, the project went smoothly and this HD has been working fine ever since it's first boot and install of Windows 7.

1 out of 5 eggsDrive dailing after two years.

Pros: Worked fine for two years.

Cons: Is now failing. On it's way out...

Other Thoughts: I know it's ridiculous to expect drives manufactured in the past half dozen years to last longer than your average underwear, but I have a couple of WD drives from 10-12 years ago that are doing fine. And it's sad that they don't have QC like that any more...

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Stephen S., please accept our apologies for any inconvenience you may have experienced. Please note that there are many variables that can result in a failed drive, such as power outages, accidental physical damage, and internal component failure, just to name a few. We understand your situation and will gladly replace your in-warranty drive, as we stand by our products and their associated warranties.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth the time or money

Pros: None

Cons: Took this drive out of the package to format it and it died within seconds. This isn't the first time that I've had to deal with Western Digital about drives that come with the rattle of death right from the get go. Don't know how they (WD) are still in business.

Other Thoughts: Western Digital drives are Unuseable. I've been in business for over 20 years and have never, ever in my whole life dealt with such gross lack of quality control. It's non-existant! All I get is the run around and they send refurbished drives back. Pathetic to say the least

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsWD Scorpio Black WD3200BEKT

Pros: Very quiet and fast, great warranty

Cons: None; only time will tell

Other Thoughts: Ordered drive the day after Cyber Monday and paid extra for 2-3 day
shipping. Two days later Newegg notified me they were swamped and the drive hadn't shipped yet. Finally received the drive the next Thursday. As a longtime Newegg customer I have to say that I was disappointed since I paid for quicker shipping that I didn't get.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Hard Drive Replacement

Pros: I bought this drive in order to replace a failing drive in my Thinkpad T410. I took the old drive out and placed this guy in the Thinkpad's drive case and then put the case into the laptop. After restoring from a system image, I'm back up and running.

This drive is faster than the old one and also runs quietly without vibrations. I saw some people complaining about vibrations and noise, but at least in the ThinkPad T410, it works great!

Cons: None.
