Edroman M., Newegg
14 December 2014
  • Pros: Reading good reviews online. Haven't received it yet.
  • Cons: I am not sure where in this website or in your account to track something you just bought. I can't find it anywhere. I've read that newegg.com takes forever to shipped things to the buyers and it is frustrating not knowing where your items is.

Scorpio Black

mike r., Newegg
2 November 2014
  • Summary: Using this in an ext case for movies. I have it on a G-box MX2, and keep moving it to and fro.....uploading movies and such. I don't smack it around, and treat it nice...so far it has returned the favor.
  • Pros: No issues left. Western Digital has usually worked well for me.
  • Cons: Hasn't died yet. Knock on wood. Any hard drive can crash at any time, just go easy on the stuff.....

"ticking" at a little over 14 months

andrew s., Newegg
27 September 2014
  • Summary: Back up your data
  • Pros: Exactly what it claims to be. No issues up to about 1 year.
  • Cons: The death tick started at about 12 months and I doubt it will last much longer. It's a shame, I typically swear by WD.

Poor vendor, great product

Buford N., Newegg
24 September 2014
  • Summary: I did my homework for this purchase because the Mini is so difficult to work on. I only wanted it in the shop once so I chose the Samsung SSD and the WD Scorpio Black based on user reviews.
  • Pros: Great hard drive. I refreshed my Mac Mini with a 250gb Samsung Evo 840 SSD and wanted to install an internal Time Machine backup drive using a 2nd HDD kit from OWC.. It's a little spendier than other 2.5" drives but if the numbers and reviews are right it's worth it.
  • Cons: Action Packaged is the WORST online purchase experience I have had in a very long time! I placed my order before Labor Day and lingered in processing forever. It was 3 weeks before I received the drive. This vendor will never see another cent of my money again. I have been a Newegg customer for 8...

Great drive for a notebook

Tony B., Newegg
7 July 2014
  • Summary: After a bad experience with another drive manufacturer, I've stayed with Western Digital ever since.
  • Pros: Bought this back in Sept of 2013 to replace a 320 GB drive that was running out of room in my notebook. First drive started doing the "clicking" within a few weeks. Happily I had not committed any data to the drive yet, so replacing it just took some time. Drive has been solid since September. Ru...
  • Cons: First drive died, but replacement was easy.

I own four & they are all going strong...

SHARON M., Newegg
25 April 2014
  • Summary: Newegg has always given me stellar service and speed. I have had a perfect experience with these HDDs.
  • Pros: I own four of these installed in two different Alienware laptops. After well over a year, all four are still going strong. They are as fast as any other mechanical drives that I have ever owned. I find them to be very reliable.
  • Cons: None so far that I have seen.
