mitch h., Newegg
13 January 2016

  • Pros: will make a cool target...
  • Cons: died in just under 2 years in a laptop costs the same as a 500 gig SSD on sale....

Failed after 1.5 years but is not covered by warranty

Hans G., Newegg
9 July 2015
  • Summary: Came as part of a Toshiba Satellite Laptop and the HD S/N is not recognized at the Toshiba RMA website, although the laptop's is, which I take to mean that it only has the laptop's warranty (1 year). Will replace it but not with a Toshiba!
  • Pros: it worked while it lasted
  • Cons: Failed after 1.5 years.

  • Summary: Probaby not going to use it. if I do, its going to be an external storage only.
  • Pros: Size for the price.
  • Cons: Died in a month. Had to rush to fix it for my customer. Ended up costing me money replacing it through toshiba acclaim. Got the replacement but I am hesitant to install it. So I bought a WD 1tb locally.

JUNK

M. English "ME", Amazon
25 October 2014
  • Summary: Drive never worked. I formatted it a few times and then two different computers wouldn't recognize it for more than 30 seconds. I could hear it spin up and then click, click, click. Don't waste your money. I learned my lesson and I will never stray from WD again.

Purchased for Playstation 3

francisco s., Newegg
4 July 2014
  • Summary: Returned for refund. If you need to return anything just use usps. It's much cheaper than using their ups discounted rate.
  • Pros: Got it on sale for $60 bucks.
  • Cons: Arrived DOA. Tried to restore my PS3 back up to this new hard drive and it kept failing at 93%. Deleted my PS3 backup and backed it up again. Hard drive still failed at 93%.
