  • Pros: Have been a system builder for over twenty years, since Digital Research DOS and early MS DOS. Only the second Western Digital hard drive received DOA using only WD drives for very many systems.
  • Cons: DOA. First problem with any order from New Egg. All other items have been software or only electronic in nature. First mechanical device ordered and it was DOA with indentations on about a quarter of the label corresponding to about one quarter of the indentations on the housing of the drive. Rough, careless handling? From my experience and reading about all of the bent pins, as received, for OEM processors QC needs to encourage handling, packaging, and shipping to tr...

Problems? Check This

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: A little pricey but P-ATA drives are becoming obsolete and choices are few, which naturally drives up the cost.
  • Pros: Quiet
  • Cons: Not a con specifically against the drive but a minor engineering problem. This drive is a few thousandths of an inch thicker than the old 20 gig. See other.

Brought an old laptop to life.

Melvin B., Newegg
6 September 2009
  • Pros: It brought a dramatic increase in speed to a 7 year old laptop. I had already done a clean re-install, upgraded the ram to 1 gig, and it was running pretty good.
  • Cons: I downloaded the 120MB WD version of Acronis to transfer data to the new drive, only to learn that it couldn't see that the new drive in an external enclosure was a qualifying WD drive. About 30 minutes on WD phone support pointed me to a solution I'll describe in "other thoughts".

Great Hard Drive

Todd P., Newegg
4 March 2008
  • Pros: Runs fine so far, my Dell Inspiron recognized it without a problem, much faster then my other hard drive that crashed and a good deal for the money.
  • Cons: None as of right now. Doesn't come with instructions. If you're a novice that might be a problem.

Great HardDrive

ANTONIA C., Newegg
29 February 2008
  • Pros: the original HD on my laptop was at it's last heartbeats so I decided to purchase a new one. So far, everything that I wanted and much more. Runs quicker than the one I had before (4200 vs 5400) and larger capacity. As read before, also runs cooler than your typical 5400 rpm drive.
  • Cons: NONE

Has a 3 year factory warranty

Gary H., Newegg

  • Pros: LOW price for a 120gb 5400 R.P.M notebook drive. A 3 year factory warranty.
  • Cons: None yet. Mine have a 22 OCT 2007 build date, built just 2 weeks before Newegg sent them to me!

  • Pros: These are very reliable hard drives. I use this with my usb enclosure, and it works great. For those who wants to know about warranty, THESE ARE COVERED under Western Digital's warranty.
  • Cons: The warranty is not very long. A little bit less than 3 years. It's less than 3 years because it starts from the time the HDDs were in Newegg's inventory.
