Good 5400 RPM Drive

Pros: Cheap

Cons: No 3.5" Adapter Included

Other Thoughts: Good drive. It's no SSD, but it was purchased for a HDD replacement for a laptop. So far so good, no complaints.

Direct Replacement

Pros: Purchased this Hard Drive as a direct replacement of a failed HD out of a Lenovo laptop. It was a clean install so I had to install an operating system. No issues with the product so far.

Cons: None to date

There are other hard drives out there

Pros: It was inexpensive. The replacement seems ok now.

Cons: The first one I received had bad sectors which caused a head ache installing windows 7 and ultimately lead to unacceptable operation with errors often in the OS. This was a drive ordered for someone else to be installed by myself so when the issues arose it took more time getting the PC back to the owner. I ended up going to best buy and getting a cheap Seagate for 50 bucks, which installed fine and I have not heard back from the owner regarding the drive in over a year.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for but if the quality control isn't the greatest I feel 40 dollars would have been more reasonable for a budget hit or miss 500GB drive. Price 69.99 ~2013

The replacement drive now sits on the bench in case I absolutely NEED to use it for something.

Great drive, excellent price.

Pros: Quiet, reasonably fast. Excellent price. No issues after about a month of use. Well matched to the laptop it went into.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Replaced a bad drive in an H/P Probook. This drive is well suited to the task. I've been very satisfied with WD drives.
