5 out of 5 eggsWD support

Pros: Other than Newegg does not support RMA after 30 days from purchase and the dead drive itself, the service on the Western Digital 800 support line was excellent.

I just spoke to the WD support guy and he RMA'd the drive immediately and also included UPS shipping, so no cost to me other than some lost productivity.

Added a couple of eggs for that.

Cons: died too soon. boo.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks until it dies too soon

Pros: Fast, quiet, low power consumption, easy installation

Cons: It died an early death.

Purchased in Dec 2012 and installed in a Dell 1525 laptop to replace a Seagate 120GB drive (which was used heavily for more than three years and still works swell). As for the WD, I probably only got a true 6 months of use out of this device. Very very disappointing. Fortunately, I back up regularly to an external HD, so I didn't lose too many valuable docs.

I put the Seagate 120 back in the laptop, so at least I can continue to work, although I consider my machine crippled with the tiny HD.

Other Thoughts: Back up your stuff, people. You don't think losing your stuff could happen to you, but it will, and almost always at the wrong time.

5 out of 5 eggs2.5"_500GB WD-Black

Pros: I have purchased many WD-Black hard drives, and have not had problems with any of them, that is why I continue to buy them exclusively. When practical I purchase laptop size drives, as they are designed for additional impact resistance.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Works well, no problems

Cons: Slightly power hungry, but that is expected

Other Thoughts: Running this for 2.5 years now in a MacBook and it is solid. Good drive. Not a single problem. Like many people I've gone through my share of hard drives in various computers over the years and I'm happy to have one that is reliable.
