Summary: 7200rpm which is faster than most stock harddrives of 5400rpm affordable enough to warrant an upgrade of performance without hurting the pocket. 5YR warranty on all WD scorpio BLACK harddrives Largest xbox360 compatible to date, that I know of.
Pros: 7200rpm, affordable, xbox compatible, 5yr Warranty
Summary: Runs with no problems so far. Pretty smooth quick. I love Western Digital, never failed on me and good quality fast stuff without glitches. Though a 7200 sucks more power than the old 5400 in my laptop. Looks like it can successfully be used in PS3 and xbox 360 as well if one were so incline to flash the drives.
Summary: I highly recommend this hard drive to all laptop users with a 5400rpm hd and wanting a cheap performance boost. Since SSDs were out of my budget, I upgraded my Seagate 160 gb 5400rpm hd to this drive, which massively improved my laptop's responsiveness.
Summary: purchased to replace the OEM hard drive. this unit offered more capacity and was faster than my 5400 rpm drive which came with my laptop, however it didn't feel any faster. worked great for 9 months then one day it just wouldn't boot up. after several attempt to reformat and reinstall the OS I finally received an error indicating hard drive failure. had I known this wouldn't last the 2 years that the OEM hitachi drive lasted I would have purchased a different brand.
Summary: I bought this drive for a friend who needed a new disk after his old one died. WDC black disks are very good and this drive is no exception. It is fast (for an HD) and comes with a 5 years warranty.
Summary: This WD Black 7200rpm drive is the perfect solution for a relatively easy and hugely beneficial switch from a 5400rpm drive to a 7200rpm drive. Another benefit is that the 16mb buffer size will give you an edge over most 5400rpm drives that only have an 8mb buffer. Free-fall sensor - As an added layer of protection, if the drive (or the system it's in) is dropped while in use, WD's free-fall sensor detects that the drive is falling and, in less than 200 milliseconds,...
Summary: I purchased this hard drive for a co-worker. He had a 120GB 5400 RPM Hard drive, and this proved to be a nice upgrade. Besides the increase in storage capacity there was also a noticeable boost in boot-up times. If you want a good performing hard drive and would prefer not to overspend on an SSD, you won't be disappointed with this hard drive.
