Beware this is a Recertified Drive with Limited Warranty

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 January 2014
  • 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. Decided not to spend another $5.00 to return this who's to know if this person would credit me if he has already misrepresented the product??

No problems with this drive.

DRO GUY, Amazon

  • 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. I would recommend this drive to anyone one looking for a great replacement drive.

Nice replacement hard drive

Delta Lady, Amazon
21 March 2011
  • 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. So far, no problems. Used to replace a hard drive of the same size that crashed, a cheap Hitachi the computer manufacturer had installed.

For a client, no complaints so far. Been ~1 year.

  • 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. Would totally recommend, WD has come a long way. I remember when my WD hard dives would constantly fail, now they're the only company I really trust.

Either I'm dumb or setup is not easy

  • 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. So I plugged the drive into the USB port, fired up Acronis, and Acronis said it couldn't see any WD drives and it gave up.

UPDATE--this product is my external HD for my WIN 7 Disk Image--Recovery Program. Its operating perfectly. Western Digital is always my choice.

Great for upgrading Xbox 360 HDD

Alexander Fick, Amazon
15 December 2010
  • Summary: This is the exact same HDD found in the Xbox 360 HDD enclosures and I used it to go from a 20gb one to a 120gb. Worked flawlessly, but was a little more than I wanted to pay for a 120gb HDD, but that is what happens when you look at 2.5" drives.

Runs great in my DESKtop

Sammy7, Amazon
4 October 2010
  • Summary: Got two of those babies. Put one in my desktop which has a SATA II cables, and this drives fits perfectly without any additional cable adapters, but you will need a drive craddle such as this one( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002BH3Z8E/ref=ox_ya_os_product). My older 320GB PATA drive is now my data storage and this drive which runs snappy enough on Win 7 Home, is my boot drive.
