WD BLACK SERIES WD7500BPKX 750GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Perform well while they work

Cons: Have 5 in a RAID 5 array and I've had 6 fail in the past 3 months. each time having to RMA them to WD. RMA process is nice but I'm tired of the stress. Would not recommend as two of the replacements I got from WD have failed.

Other Thoughts: Sucks paying a ton of money for "server class" drives but times like this I wish I did. These might be considered a step above but this failure rate is beyond unacceptable.

Western Digital Scorpio Black WD7500BPKT 750GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Purchased as part of an "edge storage" project that doesn't need fast drives. Large and reasonably priced.

Cons: out of the 4 I purchased, 2 died within a week. Crashed my RAID5 setup but thankfully I did not deploy yet as I usually require a 15 day "break in" period.

Other Thoughts: All drives do this no matter the manufacture.

HP ProBook 4530s (LJ521UT#ABA) Notebook Intel Core i7 2670QM (2.20GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6490M with 1 GB dedicated GDDR5 video memory 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Have been buying the probook 4530s series for almost 2 years now and have zero complaints. They take a beating and keep going strong. Full number pad and plenty of RAM and disk space.

Cons: Don't really need the extra graphics but for the price it'll have to do.

Other Thoughts: Every line of notebooks has some go bad but I have around 40 of these deployed and every one is still going strong. I had one come back with a crack on the lid from someone dropping it and it still worked! Another was covered in tar and beyond dirty and still worked as well.
