Solid Reliable Drive

W. Harmon, Amazon
28 June 2011
  • Summary: This drive is now 3 year old and still working well under extreme temperature conditions. I purchased this drive for use in an older HP Laptop computer as a replacement for an failing 80GB drive. The HP laptop that I purchased this drive for is located in my Pocono cabin and stays there year round. Once the drive was installed in the computer I installed Fedora Linux as the operating system.

Upgrade your laptop!

Y. Muthafar, Amazon

  • Summary: This is an excellent laptop hard drive replacement if you're not looking for massive storage, it has a 7200 rpm speed and a 16MB cache (description is wrong after checking with amazon and western digital it's not a 32MB buffer), plus it has the free fall sensor for protection. Although it's a bulk package it came perfectly packeged by amazon..held with two pieces of plastic to keep it from direct contact during shipping, so no worries there.

  • Summary: The hard drive attached to my 1720 dell laptop easily, and is as described. This is a great option if you need more storage on an older laptop.

Good condition, not quite as advertised.

Vinayak Kottoor, Amazon
5 May 2011
  • Summary: Advertised as BJKT model (drop detection sensor), received BEKT (without sensor), for a replacement laptop and it was a good price so didn't pursue any further but certainly warrants a downgrade on rating.

Simple and snappy

El_Duder, Amazon
10 March 2011
  • Summary: Replaced a dead HD in a friend's HP DV9500. I read briefly that these were quick drives and was glad to see in my initial benchmarks that this drive delivered high performance (double the old one) and was quiet. I'm not sure about longevity and heat with this 7200 RPM drive, but setup and install with Windows 7 went quicker than I've seen in the past and was very responsive in file I/O tasks I ran it through in restoring a lot of older data and then copying between...

Great upgrade for laptop

scant24 "scant24", Amazon
4 January 2011
  • Summary: This was a really good upgrade for a PC, as it is a 7200 rpm drive instead of standard 5400, and has a 32M buffer. Really speeded up an older machine. Also has drive protection for if it falls, but hope I never need to see if that works. :-) As for it being a factory refurb, I had no problems with that as they probably just replaced the circuit board. Just to be sure I ran the WD diags against it before, but have had no problems at all. Great product!

  • Summary: My VAIO HardDrive failed in 2 year so I got this from Amazon, replaced the original HDD with Western digital Scorpio and viola all the noise that came from the old HDD was gone laptop was more quiet and it is fast as compared to the original 5400 rpm drive. In all this Drive is very nice.
