5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great, easily hacked to work on an Xbox 360, so far so good.

Cons: None (yet).

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these during a Black Friday sale, one to put in my Xbox 360, the other I put in a modular bay in my laptop after adding a 120GB SSD. Both work brilliantly without issues.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Price for a 2.5" Drive

Pros: - Expected Read/Write Speeds

- Super Slim Design (this thing is THIN)

- Good Price

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I used software to clone a client's failing hard drive's (S.M.A.R.T. tests were reporting imminent failure) partitions and then verified the file system with a few tools. The original hard drive was failing and response times were terrible. After cloning the partitions and installing the replacement hard drive, the machine began behaving as expected.

I don't recommend cloning hard drive partitions unless you absolutely have to. The client explained they had data and some programs they needed to finish up with, before blowing the OS install away with the recovery partition.

This hard drive did a great job and it's expectations were met as usual with Western Digital.

The hard drive was received rather quickly. Thanks for the fast shipping Newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks in Xbox 360

Pros: I bought a WD 500 GB LPVT on $mazon though a called Infinity India. We I received it I thought it was strange that the anti-static bag said Uline instead of WD and the label on the drive had alot of dings on it. I wrote them and they said "Sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.
It has come to our attention that one of our newer personnel in the warehouse made a mistake while packing.
At this point, we can issue a full refund for the return or if you are happy to keep the drive, we offer a discount by way of refund to your account.
Let us know what works best for you." The drive appeared to work but the Xbox 360 would not detect it.
Well the WD 500 GB LPVX works perfectly. I flashed the firmware on the hard drive using HDDHacker put it in the Xbox 360 and Bam it worked. I spent 5 days, using 4 different computer trying to flash the other hard drive with out any success. Save yourself a lot of hassles and wasted time. Pay an extra 4 bucks and get one that works from Newegg.

Cons: I didn't save myself all that trouble by just buying it from Newegg in the first place. It wasn't worth the 4 bucks that I saved.

Other Thoughts: The hard drive from $mazon through the other vender came in a small bubble pack bag the size of the hard drive, Jeez! The one from Newegg came came packed as another reviewer stated could of been dropped from 25,000 feet without being damaged. In a box inside a large bubble pack bag that was custom made for that size of hard drive and that bag fit in the box like a glove.
