5 out of 5 eggs8 months, and works perfectly in my MacBook

Pros: There was a (very) brief initial break-in hiccup after install, with streaking bars on my display; those went away within the first three days after a standard Apple update. This drive is much quieter and it's nice to have the much needed storage space.

Between the hard drive replacement and the miracle cure of upgrading to the Mac Airport Express router, I am glitch-free.

Cons: None, really.

Other Thoughts: If someone is happy enough with a product to think to review it eight months after purchase, you can bet they've had a good experience. I recommend this drive for its smooth, quiet operation and great NewEgg price! Thanks, NewEgg!

1 out of 5 eggsNot for RAID

Pros: One star for working as a normal laptop hard drive.
Minus 4 stars for not indicating that it will not work in a RAID system. Seagate, and Toshiba "regular" hard drives work in RAID.
WD, if your hard drive does not work in RAID, just say so. Three little words on the Description: "Not for RAID".
It's that simple. No headaches or weeks trying to find out if your laptop went bad, connectors, etc., only to find out while searching hundreds of forums that the "problem" is the hard drive!

Cons: Per WD:
"Thank you for contacting Western Digital Customer Service and Support. My name is Pablo R.

I apologize for the inconvenience. The wd6400bevt is a WD Scorpio Blue, this is not a RAID edition drive. Western Digital manufactures desktop edition hard drives and RAID Edition hard drives. Each type of hard drive is designed to work specifically as a stand-alone drive, or in a multi-drive RAID environment.

If you install and use a desktop edition hard drive connected to a RAID controller, the drive may not work correctly. This is caused by the normal error recovery procedure that a desktop edition hard drive uses.

Note: There are a few cases where the manufacturer of the RAID controller have designed their drives to work with specific model Desktop drives. If this is the case you would need to contact the manufacturer of that enclosure for any support on that drive while it is used in a RAID environment.

When an error is found on a desktop edition hard drive, the drive

Other Thoughts: Per WD:

If you install and use a desktop edition hard drive connected to a RAID controller, the drive may not work correctly. This is caused by the normal error recovery procedure that a desktop edition hard drive uses.
Western Digital RAID edition hard drives have a feature called TLER (Time Limited Error Recovery) which stops the hard drive from entering into a deep recovery cycle. The hard drive will only spend 7 seconds to attempt to recover. This means that the hard drive will not be dropped from a RAID array. While TLER is designed for RAID environments, a drive with TLER enabled will work with no performance decrease when used in non-RAID environments."
