3 out of 5 eggsBe sure you back up regularly

Pros: Very fast and quiet. Loved it in my MacBook Pro. Warranty cannot be beat.

Cons: Dead in less than 7 months of service, hence the loss of 2 eggs.

Other Thoughts: I am super grateful that I use Time Machine on my Mac, because once the RMA drive comes in, I will restore back to where things were this morning when I got home from work.

I am not sure why the drive died, but I am grateful for advance replacement as an option on the Western Digital site.

2 out of 5 eggsQuestionable Reliability

Pros: * 5 year warranty
* fast when it worked

Cons: * vibrations and noise

Other Thoughts: my first W.D. hard drive was in a Cyrix 486 DX2 66mhz. The drive was about 500MB and failed within a year. Replacement suffered the same fate.

Fast forward 16 years, my third western digital (WD3200BJKT) also died within one year. First, IRQ time outs noticed in windows Vista when the OS would eventually dead lock waiting on a write operation to finish; this would eventually get flagged within the event logger.

Ran W.D.'s data life guard tools and got a nice IRQ request timeout on a write operation while doing a low level format, twice.

I've owned all brands of hard drives over the 17 years, but western digital has suffered the most premature failure of any manufacture I have purchased a hard drive from.

Pros: Quiet, fast, error-free

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: I inserted it into the laptop, installed Windows 7, and the rest was history. No complaints - it does the job.

Shipping was fast, arrived earlier than expected.

Newegg is my first stop for computer stuff.

5 out of 5 eggs..One of the Best..

Pros: Read about the smooth head movement, and add that to 7200_rpm with a free-fall option, and you have a great drive. I have three. My laptop 5400_rpm drive died due to heat--there was a thumb sized wad of dog hair between the cooling fan and the main radiator. With a little care, this should never happen again. I learned the hard way.

This drive makes my middle aged ACER perform like it's overclocked. The drive plus more memory made a great improvement.

I use another drive with a SilverStone enclosure for recording 8 tracks live. The enclosure slips into a floppy sized slot on my desktop for editing. Since I've had these drives, I've had zero problems. They're fast, silent, cool, big, and reliable.

Cons: Aside from mounting the drive yourself, there really is no down side. You may have a random bad drive--just replace it. Once you get it settled down, it will simply work. I have three, and all were good out of the envelope.

Other Thoughts: Get this enclosure..

If you know what you are doing, you will have a gold mine. I used Paragon to copy all the working partitions from a lame drive onto this drive, mounted it, and it is working today. It's like greased lightning.

2 out of 5 eggs33 days and DEAD

Pros: Fast, for a laptop HD

Cons: I thought when I pushed the ON/OFF button on the laptop it was supposed to start up... Guess this HD didn't get that memo.
Maybe I just got a bad one, but now I have lost everything, thanks WD.

5 out of 5 eggsHumans & Hard Drives

Pros: OK, I would like just take a quick moment and go over something hard drives 101. Anyone whom is anyone who has standard to high technical experience knowledge about hard drives would know this. Any company you buy from even from the top three which are Western Digital, Seagate & Samsung. Know very well that you’re always rolling the dice on a hard drive. Whether you purchase a retail, oem etc.. This is nothing new to people. There manufactured by the thousands… And there will be that one drive you hand from whichever of these brands that went bad after a week, month or 30 seconds. So if you are going to leave a review. Then leave a review that new comers and so on to actually get some incite this or any other product.

Cons: None realistically speaking about hard drives in general. This is a grade “A” hard drive for anyone who is looking for a fast, reliable & not to overpriced. If there are any cons to be honest its my burning out my sockets when I read complaints especially from people whom status themselves as a high tech level.

Other Thoughts: I never just stick to one brand; I mix and match all the time. I read reviews and shop around by everything the best way how. If you think you are safe with sticking with one manufacture then that is great. But that doesn’t mean you’re not prone to any of this mechanical issue you will face or occur from any other manufactures these days.

2 out of 5 eggsNice drive...when it works

Pros: When its working, its blazing fast for a laptop hard drive. Low power consumption and isn't all that noisy.

Cons: Drive only wants to work for about 8 months before it dies.

Other Thoughts: This drive came with my laptop. In the last year and 3 months, I've gone through 2 of them and am getting ready to have a 3rd installed. They don't appear to have any kind of ability to withstand the normal day to day use and movment of a laptop. When the drive is working, its awesome. Unfortunately, after about 6-8 months, the drive starts to fail and requires a check disk scan each time the computer boots. One drive is an anomoly. Going on 2-3 drives for me is telling me this drive may not be all its cracked up to be. I didnt get this drive from newegg but if this 3rd drive fails, you can bet I'll be getting a different brand hard drive right here.

5 out of 5 eggsVERY FAST

Pros: This HD is just fast and quiet. Good price perfect for upgrading laptop OEM HD.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I just upgrade my X-205 SLI 2 from hitachi hard drives that just stopped working. Love it! Super fast shut down. Before I was waiting like 1 min to shut it down. Now 7 to 10 seconds its off yes!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat performance hard drive

Pros: Awesome performance. I didn't run any benchmarks, but there is noticeably faster boot times, and faster loading overall compared to my older 320 GB 5400 RPM drive.

Cons: This drive vibrates... A lot from what I can tell, when compared to my older drive. I stuck this into an ultra thin CULV notebook because I was frustrated with my boot and loading times, but I noticed a significant vibration difference.

Other Thoughts: I don't know if it's the nature of Windows 7 plus the free fall sensor in this drive, but as soon as the Windows logo starts to "glow" on the screen during boot up, this hard drive spins down, then spins back up. It's kinda scary since it doesn't happen with my desktop (at least I don't notice it), which is running a WD Caviar Black. Again, this drive has higher vibration output due to the 7200 RPM spindle speed. I'm thinking of switching to a 5400 RPM drive due to this vibration, and maybe upping the capacity to the 500 GB or 640 GB drive to compensate for the slower spindle speed. I was thinking maybe an SSD will be a better option for me, but I'm not planning on getting an SSD anytime soon.
