3 out of 5 eggsDidn't last a year

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD5000BPKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Good price, easy to set up, fast

Cons: It has stopped working - won't boot up and the WD hard drive program indicates there are too many bad sectors for it to function.

Other Thoughts: It has a 5-year warranty, so I'll ask for a replacement. Hope to not go through this again in a year.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Hard Drive

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD5000BPKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Let me say this is a great drive I had a old Hitachi 120Gb drive and went to This drive and what a difference Faster access time, Boot time ETC, no more lag in my Games when loading loads about 25-50% faster I received the drive today and loaded it up with Windows 7 and no problems Newegg is awesome if there's a problem there here to help you out.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I know im not getting much Speed difference in my old Dell Precision M90 because its Sata 1 just needed a bigger drive and Western Digital Black drives are the way to go if your a gamer I've always bought Western Digital and never had problems the laptop is just for College work, tech work, Some gaming.
