5 out of 5 eggsWorked fine

Pros: I got a great egg deal on this one. I shopped a few days and it appeared.

WD is all good. No worry. no troubles

It is backward compatible to older machines. Panasonic picked it up right away and did the install of the OS. Like a ten year old but not older than that. I worried it would not backward compatible for me, but it did. I probably has SATA I 3.0Gb/sec.

Cons: I really personally had no real use for it. I used it to try a test on a laptop with a mind to install it in some laptop I will sell.

Other Thoughts: HDDs are real cheap and real good these days>

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: None

Cons: This drive came standard in my MSI laptop.

After having this drive for a while, I noticed my laptop would freeze every ten minutes. At first I thought it was a problem with the laptop itself or that I potentially had a bad hard drive, but after I got a replacement HDD from MSI, I noticed the same problem was occurring.

After doing some research, I found out that this drive has a "green" feature hard coded into the firmware. What this feature does is shutoff the HDD every 10 or so minutes due to inactivity. For those of you who are composing a word document (which mostly runs from the RAM) you'll be hearing the HDD wind up every ten minutes, and whatever program you have open will freeze (because it's waiting for the drive to wind up and read). It's extremely frustrating and pointless in a HDD, not to mention constantly stopping and starting a HDD will cause it to fail quicker (some say by half). It is deplorable that this has become a standard industry practice, and I hope other HDD manufacturers are not following WD's example. If I wanted a "green" or "eco" drive, I would have bought one, instead I ended up replacing this drive with one out of an old (~5 years old) laptop. It's slow to boot, but it doesn't cause my programs to freeze and doesn't slow down my games at all (besides loading time, not a big deal). It's ironic that 5 year old technology can outperform this junk, how unfortunate for WD. I'm guessing that half of these "failures" listed in the review section for this drive are actually just the drive doing what it was programed to, but please take these negative reviews seriously!

Do not purchase this, go somewhere else. I recommend seagate, samsung or hitachi (not sure if they make laptop HDD but check!). These are truly the best brands, I've had every one and not a single failure or quirk. I've had the seagate for over seven years and it's been the best drive I've ever had (I'm of course referring to desktop HDD), but anything at this point is better than WD.

Other Thoughts: Buyer beware!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good.

Pros: Currently using in an Zalman ZM-VE300-SE external cradle. I have iso files, the suite, and an installation of linux all running from this little drive.

Performance over usb3 is quite tolerable... perhaps nice even... even when booting Linux or running Libre Office from the drive.

Cons: I was worried by all the other negative reviews and I'll admit I'm still a bit worried. I've had absolutely no problems and seen no signs of failure from this drive while I've been using it but I find I wish I had more peace of mind regarding it.

1 out of 5 eggsdon't buy

Pros: none

Cons: i bought a dell and got an extended warranty through a local electronics store. i have sent this laptop back through the repair center 3 times. this hard drive is the "oem equivalent" they put in for defective drives. it has not lasted more than 2 months each time i've had to send it back. they keep putting this drive in and it keeps going bad.

Other Thoughts: stick with seagate or samsung.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect capacity, WD quality

Pros: Great price on Newegg. I needed a secondary HDD for my computer. Primary drive is a SSD. This will be for storage so don't need the speed.

Cons: Not really a con but takes a while to format in Computer Management within Windows.

Other Thoughts: Great drive for an awesome price.
