5 out of 5 eggsalways cheap and reliable

Pros: I'm a student but I fix computers at a decent sized university with a horrible IT department. I've installed over 20 of these drives or equivalent former model over the last year or two. I test every one I get before installation and every single one has passed hardware testing on arrival. I haven't had any come back to me failed so I assume they're all still working.

Cheap. Reliable.

Cons: Still just a 5400rpm drive so not the fastest, but for the price it's just fine.

Other Thoughts: I suggest this drive to anyone needing a cheaper 500gb laptop drive.

5 out of 5 eggsgood choice

Pros: WD name brand, low price

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Maybe it's just luck, but I've never had a WD drive fail on me yet. This was a "bare" drive, meaning no retail box or other junk that you throw away. It was enclosed in a heavy duty air bag designed specifically for this form factor of HDD. It looks like they could have booted it out of the airplane at 5000 ft and it would still fire up with no problem. Nice!

1 out of 5 eggsDead in less then 90 days

Pros: It worked when I first got it. I ordered from newegg 8/6/2014

Cons: Dead in less then 3 months..
unbootable and data is lost.

Just got off the phone with Western Digital support so case is developing.

Other Thoughts: I have mixed feelings on this since I am in the grey area with Newegg as its over 30 days, and Western Digital Support line is like Running through hoops.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet Little Drive

Pros: Very Thin.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The drive is so thin that when I installed it for the first time I missed the connector on the board but that is not the drives fault it was not the same physical size as the drive it replaced.
