Good choice to revive an old laptop
24 October 2014
Summary: This drive has been working on my work laptop which is a 2003 model Toshiba Satellite S1950-801 for abt 3 years. The motherboard is based on the Intel 845 chipset which was released in Jan 2002.
Summary: This product exceeded my expectations for smooth and quiet operation. Installation was simple, a little time consuming due to the number of files, programs and applications I transferred, but simple and without problems. It pleases me that so much technology can be stuffed into such a small package.
Summary: I installed this hard drive in a Fit-PC Slim, a tiny, fanless computer that has a PATA interface. I use the hard drive for network attached storage, and I have had no problems with its speed, performance, heat level, or noise level. It is considerably quieter than my 3.5" external hard drives.
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.
Summary: I had a 4200rpm pata and it was almsot dead..after this WD 250GB drive it gave a new life to my sony vaio. i dont know why manufacturers get out a 7200rpm drive...anwyays its silent and increased my laptop performance
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.
Summary: I have a Mac pro desktop computer and had some of the hard drives fail ( It can hold as many as four drives and is best with a dedicated drive for backup). I purchased this drive just for that purpose.
