1 out of 5 eggsDead after 2.5 years

Pros: Cheap, good capacity.

Cons: Dies after only 2 years, just past the warranty period.

Other Thoughts: Hey WD, here's some free, but really good, advice: If you can't sell a drive with a 5 year warranty, do NOT sell one at all. It will cause potential buyers to wonder what other bad management and manufacturing decisions might be affecting your other product lines. Remember: Quality, quality, quality!!

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 2 years

Pros: Size, price

Cons: It's dead after exactly 2 years + 1 month after the purchase.

Other Thoughts: Quality of western digital has deteriorated in the last years. I'm switching to other brands.

5 out of 5 eggsUnstoppable

Pros: Very good capacity for a budget. Runs solid and very quick for a 5400 rpm drive

Cons: NADA

Other Thoughts: This exact drive came in my Inspiron N7110 (17R). It has a recovery partition alongside WIN7 and WIN8 Developer partitions. I have had no issues with it. It is a strong drive, durable, and puts out hardly any heat.

1 out of 5 eggsRMA x2

Pros: Cool, quiet, and, at the time of purchase, the largest capacity 9.5mm height drive I could find. Installed in my Unibody MacBook without issue.

Cons: My first drive died in less than a year. My warranty replacement drive has just failed in less than a month.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Runs fast, made my laptop a whole lot faster than it was before

Cons: Drive bugged out on my for no reason whatsoever after about a month and a half of using it. RMA-ing it for a replacement, hopefully it doesn't take too long considering the flooding.

Other Thoughts: I feel like this drive is really good, but I just got one from a bad batch I guess. Most reviews I've seen on it are really good, even after extended use. It's too bad it had a music mix I was working on on it, and it was the only copy (my bad haha)

1 out of 5 eggsDied in less than five months

Pros: Affordable

Cons: Questionable quality

Other Thoughts: I purchased three of these drives a little over a year ago and installed them in various machines. Two are still running fine. One was installed in a daily-use laptop (a machine that sits on my desktop and is rarely moved) in May of this year and it died this week, after less than five months of use.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HD for PS3

Pros: Run cool on my PS3
Low noise

Cons: Price still somewhat high,
low cache

Other Thoughts: Should waited for a shell shocker
Aim for a 5400 RPM drive if you want you PS3 to run cool, 7200 RPM generate to much heat

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I got this drive for $50 last Thanksgiving. Excellent capacity for that price. Haven't had any big problems in that time.

Cons: Noticed a small sort of beeping sound after I installed. Haven't noticed that sound much after a little time.

Other Thoughts: Just what you should expect when ordering this item. Not spectacular performance, but stable and pretty good capacity per $.
