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.
Very noisy- thicker than many drives Getting disk errors

Summary: I originally upgraded a Toshiba Satellite with this drive. It seemed to work fine, but runs very hot and very loud. It was so loud I decided to swap it out for a Toshiba drive and use it just for backup. That's when I found that in three weeks this drive had already developed significant sector errors (normal cloning software failed).
