Good hard drive..

GamePlayer "Game player", Amazon
26 June 2013
  • Summary: This is a review of a hard drive I have had for several years. I waited to write a review until I could see how this drive worked in the long run. It has now been running continuously for over 2 years and has not failed. In the mean time I've had 4 - 1TB drives (Maxtor and Seagate) that have failed within a few months of use and had to be exchanged (which both companies honored their warranties). It may not be gigantic like the newer drives, but it is reliable.

I'm Happy

CoolAir, Amazon
26 June 2013
  • Summary: This version is intended for the "techies" that know what they are doing, thus the "OEM" tag. The drive is completely clean w/o instructions. I bought it because PATA drives are rather limited in choices now and I needed to upgrade my older laptop from an 80GB to this 250GB. Also the price was good.

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.

OK in PowerBook G4 with forced cooling

Mort, Amazon
26 June 2013
  • 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.

Refurbished/Recertified Drives -- Not NEW

kdirtrider, Amazon
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.
