Summary: Bought this item using "New" search criteria However upon inspection this drive is labeled "Re certified" At the very best it should have been as such. Re-certified drives can be obtain for lot less elseware.
Summary: My son picked out this drive and did not realize it was a small (laptop) size drive. He needed a drive for his desktop computer. I purchase a adapter so I could mount it in the desktop computer and installed it. My son installed Windows 7 and everything worked great.
Summary: Got this to replace my HDD in my VAIO running XP. Also I bought from Amazon HDE's 2.5" USB 2.0 SATA Hard Drive HDD Case Enclosure. I expected to go to WD's site and download their free cloning software, Acronis.
Summary: Easy to install, had to "partition" to install my recovery system - had never done this before, but there are sources on the internet for partitioning software so took me about a day to figure everything out and get it done. Comes packed in its own little very sturdy shipping box.
Summary: I bought this to replace a client's laptop's clicking hard drive. Cheatest drive I could find + shipping. I mean, all my client did was web surfing, this thing might have even been overkill with 120GB. but it was the cheapest I could find. Been ~1 year and no complaints from them.
Summary: I only use WD for my System C:/drive..why the 120-GB's..I normally won't go higher than 80-GB's..this drive may become a Ext. Enclosure HDD..once its upgraded to a SSD..40-GB Drive. UPDATE--this product is my external HD for my WIN 7 Disk Image--Recovery Program. Its operating perfectly.
