1 out of 5 eggsDisapointed

Pros: Quick Delivery

Cons: Put it in my laptop and it only shows it's a 150 gig drive. Label says 500 gigs...

Other Thoughts: Not sure my 30 days are up, but it sure would have been nice to get the right drive. Didn't use it right away so I didn't know it wasn't the right size. Installed it in a Lenovo X60 .

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Drive

Pros: Needed a new HDD for my laptop, this fit the bill. Cheap, super fast. Not as fast as an SSD, but I didn't need that fast. Works like a champ with 3 partitions (dual boot Windows 7/Xubuntu, and a storage partition). I had no issues with the drive when setting up the partitions.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Uses more power than my old drive. Not a con, just something to note when moving from a 5400 RPM drive to 7200 RPM drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive

Pros: Exactly as stated. No more no less.

Cons: A little pricy for what it is and considering lager drives are not much more money.

Other Thoughts: Used in a laptop that only has sata II so it pretty much max's the bus when it can. I got this on sale so not bad, but look at others in this price range and you may be able to do better

5 out of 5 eggsSolid laptop drive

Pros: WD drive. I tend to only buy 3 types of drives and WD is one of them. (Of course, how many HDD manufacturers are left now? Fast, would have got an SSD but when I bought this, it was a 1/4 of the price of an equiv price of an SSD and laptop hardware doesn't really scream in performance to load the information into memory with mobile CPUs.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsNice drive.

Pros: Pretty solid for a notebook drive. Happy it's 7200 rpm.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Needed a large drive. 200 GB that was fast. If I could have bought an SSD cheaper at the time I would have. SSDs are great if you aren't using an OS that requires defragmenting constantly as it will burn the cells prematurely.

2 out of 5 eggsGood drive for the money but....Crashed

Pros: Was able to score this at a decent price when I was rebuilding a laptop. It did the job for me that I needed it for, which was only a couple months as I don't normally use a laptop.

Cons: I used the laptop while I was out on disability after a surgery. Now I'm 100% however the hard drive crashed and will no longer boot up due to the clicking, which is never good. That was only after a few months of usage.

Other Thoughts: There is a 5 year warranty on the drive so I need to do something about that still. It actually crashed about a month ago but looking at current ads reminded me that I should look at this now.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy...

Pros: Great company but....

Cons: I use this as primary HDD for my dear PC. It last only 4 months then crashed. Lost about 80% of them and had level 3 recovery that cost me $1k. You decide.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy "Black" from WD. It's okay to buy other WD branding but not Black type.

2 out of 5 eggsDied quickly

Pros: Drive was very fast and managed to get the old, failing drive cloned to this drive.

Cons: Failed in six weeks. Laptop reported drive as failing - SMART. Downloaded the WD utility which also reported the drive as failed.

Other Thoughts: Well this is the first WD drive that quit on me but I have to RMA it back to WD. Time will tell how that works out.
