Summary: First unit went bad within minutes of formatting and installing WIN7. Replacement dud no better. I gave up, I don't thing these returns are worth 20 cents, let along what I paid for it. Don't waste your time
Summary: Replacement hard drive for HP laptop. Great way to upgrade older laptop with older operating system. Installed new HD, new OS and reloaded existing files and other apps. Had already upgraded RAM, so this is like a new laptop without the big price tag.
Summary: I was told the hard drives was bad on my laptop. I found the same one new at a reasonable price. Unfortunately I put the new hard drive in but the laptop still didn't work. I contacted the company and the allowed not only the return but a full refund.
Summary: received it packed well. Loaded it into the laptop and loaded the OS. Saved a laptop from being useless after the factory hard drive failed. Still working perfectly after over 30 days in the device.
Summary: This drive died within about 2 years of ordinary use (SMART reported failure; CHKDSK would freeze). It came with a Lenovo ThinkPad that I bought. I had also bought another very similar WD hard drive to use as a backup drive in an enclosure, and it failed just as fast or faster.
