Summary: I put this into my laptop when my last hard drive failed. Installation was easy, and went off w/o a hitch. I've had it for a couple months and haven't had any further failures. The capacity is really good for the price. The only thing I don't like about it is that it gets really hot. Like, it rivals how hot the CPU gets. I would never put this laptop on my lap anymore.
Summary: I bought this to upgrade my Macbook's HDD from 80GB to 250GB. The replacement process was quite easy and this drive works fine (so far - I've had it for about a month). it seems like a good value for the amount of storage you get, it's working fine and seems quite fast, and so overall I'm happy with it.
Summary: I wanted to have more available space in my computer, so I decided to buy a Western Digital Disk (250 Gb). I think this is an excellent disk, I had no problems to install it, it was easy and It's a good price. My computer is a Dell Inspiron 9400. I recomend you buy this type of disk.
Summary: The product arrived in a timely manner, and installation was very simple. I was replacing the small (80 gb) OEM hard drive in my Gateway laptop with this unit. Wishing to avoid all of the bloatware which came on the PC out of the box, I elected to do a clean installation of VISTA, which went very well. The hard drive seems a bit faster than the original, likely due to higher data density, since the drive speeds are about the same.
Summary: I have the very first generation MacBook Pro. Back then I got it with the biggest drive (120GB) available. And it was always full. This drive together with an external enclosure and some info from the internet (ifixit has a very clear howto for replacing drives) I got now as much free space as I had before. The drive makes a gurgling noise every so often. I consider that not to be an annoyance.
Quiet, cool, and good-performing laptop hard drive

Summary: I bought this hard drive to match my existing Gateway P6831FX laptop's internal hard drive for a RAID array. Matching the internal drive was of primary importance; performance was secondary. It's only a 5200 RPM drive, not a 7400 RPM drive after all. But it runs quietly and at a relatively low-temperature for a RAID drive member, and definitely improves overall hard disk performance by adding RAID.
Summary: I replaced the original 100 GB hard drive of my Dell Inspiron E1705 laptop because I needed more space to store large scans of botanical specimens. I have had an external drive attached the the laptop but I'd liked to travel without carrying an additional external drive. The installation of the Western Digital drive was very easy, using the standard documentation of the Dell laptop. The whole process took less than 3 minutes.
