WD BLACK SERIES WD5000BPKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive
  • Maximum performance for power computing
  • Dual processor,Dynamic Cache
  • Rock-solid Mechanical Architecture
  • Height: 9.5mm
  • 5-year limited warranty


I've bought this same drive for others before and this one doesn't disappoint. Much quicker than the OEM 320gb 5400rpm 8mb cache drive. Works very well.


Of course while this one was being shipped the 750gb version went on sale for the same price. No fault of the 500gb of course! No cons.

Other Thoughts:

I usually get these for clients who's OEM laptop drive is either failing or failed as this will usually be faster than the stock drive, and they enjoy the peace of mind that a 5 year warranty offers.
