None existant Warranty

Pros: WD products are typically solid performers

Cons: It said it has a 5 year warranty, but when I went to register it on WD website, it says it's an OEM product and they do not provide warranties for OEM products.

Other Thoughts: not sure if i will keep it, or send it back.

Long useful life, good value

Pros: Fast, reliable, and quiet for a 7200rpm drive. Was still reasonable value for capacity five years ago, and its replacements are today.

Cons: Moderately more power consumption and noise than (otherwise inferior) 5400rpm drives.

Other Thoughts: I subjected one of these drives to ~5 years of very heavy use in a daily driver laptop before it finally began showing signs of failure as it neared its rated load cycle count (955,010 load cycles out of 1,000,000). I have had multiple other WD Black laptop drives (generally newer models, and one or two of the more recent 1TB units) in use for years without the slightest sign of trouble. I'm still a pretty small sample set, but based on my experience I would strongly recommend these drives (though probably not this exact model; newer ones now exist).

Failed

Pros: -Cheap
-Reasonable speed

Cons: -Failed after 3 years in a laptop

Other Thoughts: I spin my disks down after 10 minutes of disuse, and this drive failed after 3 years in a laptop with daily use. I'd prefer if it didn't fail, but 3 years isn't the worst run.

A Good Solid Performing HDD And Good Upgrade For A Laptop

Pros: I replaced a 250 GB HDD in my laptop with this device after my laptop warranty ended.
It has proven to be a reliable replacement. Works like it came OEM with the laptop.
Tripled my original storage capacity at a fair price. WD makes a good product.

Cons: Only wish I would have held out for a full TB HDD when the prices on them dropped.
But I still have plenty of storage, So not really a con on the product itself.

Other Thoughts: Somewhat of a challenge to install a HDD into a laptop as I had to take most of it apart to access the original drive.
If you take your time to research online tutorials, it can be done and put back together like new.
No major issues in getting it formatted and reinstalling the OS. A external optical drive is almost a necessity.
But with the manufacturer's back up/reinstallation disc and a lot of patience it can be done inexpensively.

Great Drive

Pros: I purchased this drive to replace a Broken drive on a clients laptop, and the lap top is still working fine nearly 3 years later. I am pleased and so are they!

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: WD has always seemed to provide a good product all of my computers have a Western Digital Drive in them and they continue to impress me, when I have an old computer that is still using a WD for now nearly 8 years and counting

Great while it lasted

Pros: The 5 year warranty is pretty nice. If your experience should turn out to be anything like mine, you'll be making use of it.

Seemed reasonably fast for being a 2.5 inch mechanical hard drive. Noticeably faster than the 5,400 RPM drive it had replaced.

While it lasted, it didn't get as hot as the hard drive it replaced despite being faster.

Cons: It started dying approximately two years and one month from the day I purchased it. Currently up to 44 pending sectors and 456 read errors with more each week. Currently at 16,181 GB total reads, 12,837 GB total writes. Powered on 1,010 times and has functioned so far for 11,349 hours, which translates to somewhere around 1.3 years of actual use, though the dying process started two months ago. Even TLC SSDs would be expected to last far longer.

The price is ridiculous considering what you'd be getting.

Other Thoughts: I couldn't recommend buying one of these at this stage. I purchased mine on sale at around $60 after price matching and it came with a free $13 aluminum hard drive bracket. And this was at a time when SSDs were vastly more expensive than they currently are. If you must buy one of these, I highly suggest storing the original packaging material. If you need to make use of the warranty, Western Digital expects you to ship it to them just as Newegg will ship it to you.
