A Good Solid Performing HDD And Good Upgrade For A Laptop

Summary: Somewhat of a challenge to install a HDD into a laptop as I had to take most of it apart to access the original drive. If you take your time to research online tutorials, it can be done and put back together like new. No major issues in getting it formatted and reinstalling the OS.
Pros: I replaced a 250 GB HDD in my laptop with this device after my laptop warranty ended. It has proven to be a reliable replacement. Works like it came OEM with the laptop. Tripled my original storage capacity at a fair price. WD makes a good product.
Cons: Only wish I would have held out for a full TB HDD when the prices on them dropped. But I still have plenty of storage, So not really a con on the product itself.
Summary: WD has always seemed to provide a good product all of my computers have a Western Digital Drive in them and they continue to impress me, when I have an old computer that is still using a WD for now nearly 8 years and counting
Pros: I purchased this drive to replace a Broken drive on a clients laptop, and the lap top is still working fine nearly 3 years later. I am pleased and so are they!
Pros: Works like a charm, I have it installed in a high end power pc with three exactly the same drives raided and two plextor ssd m5p 128 ssd drives raided for boot, no problems and I torture this machine. In my opinion they keep up with 3.5 size drives at 7200 RPMs. Only diff is capacity and consider...
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.....
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.
Summary: I bought this drive to pretty much prove Microsoft wrong (Very easy to do), I was getting several crashes with Windows 8 Pro, so I bought a new Disk, HDD and installed it fresh, problems started again. They then stated it was a hardware issue.
Pros: Almost silent, considering this is a HDD, I was switching back from an SSD giving Microsoft the excuse my SSD was what was causing problems with my Windows 8 Pro, it wasn't. But, now I have this sitting in my Desktop, while it doesn't look "right" with the rest of the 3.5" drives, it's a large ca...
Summary: I always buy HDDs that have 5-year warranties. One of the most hurtful things that could happen is a drive failure. I have never had a HDD with a 5-year warranty fail, while I have had HDDs with 1-2 year warranties fail.
