Works great

Anonymous, Newegg
4 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought this drive in January 2010 when a hard drive failed in a laptop. This drive provided good performance gains along with added storage at a reasonable price. The laptop has since died due to a spill, but this drive continues to work.
  • Pros: • 7200RPM • 16MB Cache in mobile hard drive • Moderate sized • Good price (at time of purchase was $64.99) • Owned for almost 5 years and never failed
  • Cons: • Currently priced high • Not SATA III

WD Quality is not what it used to be

John L., Newegg
9 June 2014
  • Summary: If a company fails or the quality to the customer is diminished it is always the fault of management. This is a true statement and Dr. Edwards Deming concurs. The system would not allow me to rate a scrambled egg choice.
  • Pros: Purchased based on past experience with WD longevity. In this case, a mistake, on my part. WD did replace the defective drive. I hope it will have an improved life.
  • Cons: I suspect WD has management that is putting good engineering choices behind profits. What type of profits can a company sustain if they lose their good name. WD quality is fallen and I suggest to you that management is the issue, as it always shall be. Drive died after less than 40 hours of servi...

Great price for solid performance

John W., Newegg
24 January 2014
  • Pros: Grabbing this drive at $60 was a great value for me. Needed this to fix an ailing laptop for a friend and I always feel good buying the black series of any WD drive. Added bonus at this price point at getting a 16 MB cache.
  • Cons: None to speak of. This type of part is great for keeping your laptop running.

  • Pros: solid drive and good price I am using it as a second drive on my laptop for data and running all my programs off a SSD Samsung 840 as my main drive. Great setup if you have 2 drive bays to save $ not buying a huge SSD drive.
  • Cons: none

Works, just noisy

Kacey R., Newegg
14 November 2013
  • Summary: Subtracted one star from noise... a minor thing really... but I've never had a WD drive chatter so much in a 2.5" format. For laughs I ran several break in/reliability tests and it passed long, short, whatever I threw at it... drive works fine, so doubt the noise is a fault.
  • Pros: Decent speed, and everything you'd expect from a WD drive.
  • Cons: Noise? This is probably the noisiest 2.5" drive I've ever used... I bought this to replace the junk hitachi Toshiba loves so much and the main thing I noticed immediately was hearing the read head move around... the clicking... just... ever present. Eh...
