OK in PowerBook G4 with forced cooling

Mort, Amazon
11 January 2014
  • Summary: I installed a WD2500BEVE in a 2005 Mac PowerBook G4 in December 2011, and I noticed fairly quickly that it seemed to be running hotter than the OEM drive, even when the computer's cooling fan was running on high. (The hard drive in a PB G4 lies just to the left of the track pad, so I could feel the heat when I rested my left hand on that part of the case.) In July 2012, the computer started locking up repeatedly. Apple Hardware Test ver.

26 June 2013
  • Summary: Warning!! Buyer Beware. These are refurbished/Recertified drives. They come in new boxes. They appear to be new and are sold as new but they are not. They even went through the trouble of placing a barcode over the recertified marking on the label.

Best big PATA Notebook Drive Available

Karl Roembke "Karl Roembke", Amazon
26 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought this drive because I wanted a LARGE PATA drive to upgrade my Compaq nc6220. Preferred retail packaging, because I thought any necessary screws, jumpers, software would be included. This is not the case here, so I subtracted one star for this. However, the retail packed drive was STILL CHEAPER than the OEM packaged drive. Inside the fancy retail box is a note that says basically "If you don't know what you're doing, get help and good luck.

These drives are VERY unreliable. Do Not Buy.

Danielle, Amazon
26 June 2013
  • Summary: The WD2500BEVE hard drives are very unreliable. I'm on my third one. My first lasted 6 months. The next lasted two months. This one less than a month. There is a five year warranty from Western Digital, so I keep sending them back. Unfortunately this doesn't help me when I need my laptop. I cannot rely on it to load windows anymore. This isn't caused by my computer.
