5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine - as always

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD3200BEKX 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Runs as it should - quiet & quickly

Cons: None yet, will be in 5-7 years when it reaches the natural life...

Other Thoughts: Work in IT working on PCs all day every day. These are my go-to drives out of government work because they just last and perform. The aren't the cheapest but what do you expect? Quality has a cost!

3 out of 5 eggsdied after a year, but, was probably faulty from start

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD3200BEKX 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: i dunno, its an HDD, what can really be said about an HDD? it works? it consistently wrote data to platters? i mean, its really cheap and has a 5 year warranty, i think that about sums it up.

Cons: i'm pretty sure it was faulty from the start, it ate one of my OS's and at a point decided it would intermittently want to be recognized. reinstall lasted for a little while before failing.

Other Thoughts: its a good deal and a 5 year warranty. if its going to fail it will be like mine, where it will have wanted to go from the start or early on. 5 years in and thats a pretty good deal and that point. thankfully HDDs have signs they are about to fail, unlike other parts. back up your data.

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD3200BEKX 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

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

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD3200BEKX 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare 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

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD3200BEKX 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

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.
