5 out of 5 eggsFantastic deal!

Pros: Fast. Inexpensive. What more could you ask for.

Cons: None if you know what you're buying.

Other Thoughts: These are enterprise class hard drives that are meant to run in blade servers. They will not fit in laptops. I put one of these in my Lian Li PC-K62 case as the primary hard drive. Mounts to the tray just fine.

4 out of 5 eggsNice hard drive

Pros: The System x on the label in the photo is an IBM blade server so I thought it would be well used. Instead the drive looked like brand new without any signs of wear. Runs fine after reformatting. No noise, and runs cool.

Cons: The drive had some 62Gb partition on it with three small files so it had to be reformatted during the Windows 7 installation. Did not notice any speed increase compared to Hitachi 1TB. Windows Experience Index was the same too. Requires a 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch hard drive mounting kit for desktop PC's.

Other Thoughts: It was well packaged inside an anti-static bag, with plastic end caps, inside a stiff cardboard box, wrapped in lots of brown paper inside the Newegg box. No damage after it fell from the top shelf of the UPS truck to the floor.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast
Quiet

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The one I recieved was the 2.5" as advertised.
Before I purchased I noticed some were saying it was the 3.5" drive. Works perfectly fine in my friends PC. No problems.

4 out of 5 eggsLOCKED HDD? What a pain in the neck!

Pros: Well other than the pain of what should be a simple install... it wasn't! The hard drive came LOCKED and even windows or recovery agent could not recover or even format the drive properly, only the cache of it was showing as available, (64mb)? I was lucky enough to try Disc Wizard which was able to fix the issue so I could use it.

Cons: Just ridiculous, at first I thought I got a DOA drive (only 64mb showing)!

Other Thoughts: Good thing I have patience or I would of just returned it, hope this helps someone else!

4 out of 5 eggsNot what it's advertised, but good

Pros: Very fast drive with good capacity.

Cons: Advertised as a laptop hard drive. I wasn't paying attention to dimensions and bought it as such. It definitely isn't a laptop hard drive (doesn't even fit in the slot) and they won't allow me to return it.

1 out of 5 eggsWarning: 14.5 mm thick

Pros: Fast but can only install in 3.5in enclosure.

Cons: Too thick to fit in any external USB 2.5in enclosure that I can find. Newegg description says 9.4mm, WRONG. I thought it would be 12.5mm, not no it's 14.5 thick. No RMA possible, thanks a lot.

Other Thoughts: 4 star product, 1 star for newegg

5 out of 5 eggsYes, these are velociraptors!

Pros: Just checked the nos and found that Centrix-intl has some. Original WD label has same P/N and code with WD logo and Velociraptor on it.

Cons: No enclosure, so I bought an Icy Dock 4x2.5" fan cooled 5.25" insert.

Other Thoughts: Given what these cost new this is a good price, if they work. I will know in a couple of weeks when they get here.

5 out of 5 eggsVelociRaptor!!!

Pros: Simply the best HDD I have bought. Quiet, great performance and FAST! Tested in my desktop (HP xw4600 w/4GB, 10K 300GB WD, 1GB MSI Nvidia GPU) and boots Ubuntu 10.10 in under 15-seconds.

Cons: No vices found

Other Thoughts: Not quite as fast as SSD but if you're looking for a 2-1/2" HDD that comes also w/a 3-1/2" cousin (mounted on a cooler tray) - THIS is an excellent solution. FAST, FAST, FAST!!
