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.

5 out of 5 eggsNice 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: This drive has been running beautifully. It was thrown in an old Dell laptop and had been perfect. 7200 rpm drive so, not as fast as an SSD, but given the age of the laptop (it has DDR2 in it), I doubt an SSD would make that much of a difference.

Cons: None
