2 out of 5 eggsFollow up to previous review

Pros: These have been a great drive (see previous review)

Cons: Out of the last 12 or so of these 5 have been DOA. Be sure to test them as soon as they arrive. NewEgg must have received a bad batch.

Other Thoughts: The ones that arrive and work continue to run great.

2 out of 5 eggsWD Black series hard drive

Pros: Well priced, easy to install.

Cons: Short life span

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive Feb.2014 and it has already died. I have tried to contact WD through their web site, for a replacement drive, but after trying several times to log on I couldn't access their site.
I have had very good results with other WD drives and hope this is just fluke.

5 out of 5 eggsWestern Digital Black 320GB

Pros: Its western Digital great brand and dependable as always.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've replaced the original hard drive in my notebook, which was a Sea-gate ST750LM022, with this one, and I've been using it for about 1 week. For me, the following changes were noticeable:
1. Increased performance: Of course not as much as using an SSD drive, but in comparison to my previous hard drive this drive is much faster. While the Windows 7`s score remain the same for two hard drives (5.9), the increased performance is clear. Just don't expect a huge change in performance.
2. Increase power consumption: The battery life time of my notebook has been decreased from 5.5 hours to less than 4 hours! It seems awful, but I don't have any complaints about this, since this is a black edition product of Western Digital and is specifically designed for performance.
3. hard drive noise is a little bit higher, but it is still at an acceptable level.
4. Vibration of this hard drive is a little more noticeable than the previous one mentioned, which is natural for 7200 rpm drives.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty fast

Pros: I bought this for my brother's PS3 to replace the small factory hard drive. He said transferring the backup was easy and that everything loads 3-4 times faster and even more on some things. He's very happy with it

can't beat it for 60 bucks anyway

Cons: none so far

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly

Pros: Worked perfectly right out the box. Had it checked by SpinRite6 and no errors found. Installed with a carrier in a desktop.

Cons: None, guess I am lucky as there are many complaints about HDDs these days. I think that my chance of success increased as this was a relatively small HDD by Western Digital.

5 out of 5 eggsWhisper quiet

Pros: It is very QUITE and runs very smooth on my Acer Aspire 7741. Had tried 2 versions of another brand and they both fit very loose in the drive bay, but this WD fits like a glove! Am very glad I decided to make this small upgrade to my laptop!

Cons: Nada.

Other Thoughts: If you're even thinking of replacing your laptop hdd, this is the one to get. You won't be sorry.
