WD BLACK SERIES WD7500BPKX 750GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Great little drive but WD's downloadable software has proprietary limitations 10/06/2015

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD7500BPKX 750GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Product arrived in excellent condition and in superior packaging. Seems like a perfect upgrade from an older 160 GB hard drive that originally came with my Toshiba laptop in 2008.

Cons: WD Acronis True Image software for cloning the data from my non-WD hard drive to the new WD hard drive is useless as I have to have the new WD hard drive installed in the laptop in order to do anything. This means that I have to install Windows, then install the WD software, but then I might as well just back up all the data manually, remove my existing hard drive from the laptop, install the new WD hard drive into the laptop, run my restore DVDs, update Windows, reinstall all of my existing programs, restore my data from the backup media used and .....well, you know the rest of the story.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive because of its advertised faster performance capabilities and because of the increased storage space. I originally attempted to clone the drive using an Apricorn DriveWire device and EZ-Gig software, but the software got stuck after I chose my original hard drive as the source drive and went to a black screen. I thought that the WD Edition of the Acronis True Image software might help circumvent this problem, but I am unable to install the software on my non-WD hard drive because (of course) it requires at least one WD hard drive to be installed on the computer. No eggs deducted for this issue because I purchased the drive from NewEgg and it appears to be perfectly functional. I just wanted others to be aware that the downloadable cloning software from WD's site will only work if you have a WD hard drive installed in your system.

Western Digital Caviar Blue WD2500AAKX 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is a refurbished hard drive at a great price (I bought it as a Shell Shocker deal for $18.99) and is currently serving as a backup drive in a friend's computer. I was able to install and format the drive without an issue and it works great!

Cons: None whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: Western Digital continues its reputation for producing excellent hard drives. They are my first choice when it comes to hard drives and NewEgg is my first choice for a vendor for these hard drives as they have provided excellent service and support in the rare instances when I have received a defective WD hard drive.

BYTECC BRACKET - 125 HDD / SSD 1 x 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Perfect adapter solution! 01/01/2015

This review is from: BYTECC BRACKET - 125 HDD / SSD 1 x 2.5" Drive to 3.5" Bay Metal Mounting Kit – OEM

Pros: It's a metal (not plastic) 3.5" to 2.5" adapter bracket that turned out to be the perfect solution for installing a Kingston SSDNow! 120 GB SSD into a Dell Dimension 3000 hard drive bracket and upgrading an old Dell Dimension 3000 computer. It came with all of the necessary screws for attaching the SSD to the adapter bracket and for installing the adapter bracket itself into the Dell hard drive bracket. Intuitve enough not to need printed instructions and well worth the price! I would recommend this bracket to anyone looking to properly secure a 2.5" SSD into an existing 3.5" HDD bay.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: It might prove to be somewhat tougher installing this bracket into a 3.5" HDD bay that is not removable from the case, but not any tougher than installing an HDD in the same bracket, though.
