It's not a new drive, it's "recertified".

Dave, Amazon
9 December 2013
  • Summary: Patel, this product is not new - it's USED! The drive is marked "recertified" but it was advertised as new in the ad in several locations. Nobody would pay almost $50 for a "recertified" 320GB 2.5" drive.

  • Summary: Nice hard drive. It increased the performance in my old laptop (compared to the original Toshiba drive). Western Digital is my preferred brand of hard drive. They have never let me down.

Great drive and Great Value - Used in a Thinkpad

Tarunc, Amazon
30 April 2011
  • Summary: Hi All. I have a Lenovo - (IBM) Thinkpad W500 and wanted to get another drive so that I could load Windows 7 Beta on it to test...without having to destroy my good ole Vista x64 Image. This drive caught my interest...1 because I didnt really need anything larger, and 2 because its NOT a Seagate. I have heard the disasters surrounding Seagate as of late and thus WD gets high marks for Quality in my book.

Excellent harddrive

James S. Monczynski, Amazon
27 February 2011
  • Summary: I went from a smaller 5400 hard drive to this one and I just love it. Boot time has increased, working in Vista is faster and I move alot of large files and that is much faster. I highly recommend this one.

This drive is very fast, and so far has been reliable. (1 year mark)

S. Power, Amazon
5 February 2011
  • Summary: I bought this drive to replace the OEM one in my Dell Latitude D630. It went in easy, is fast, and has been reliable for the year + that I've had it in my machine. I recommend this drive or others from the "Western Digital Scorpio Black" line for their speed and reliability.

Drive works great

W. Gould, Amazon
5 February 2011
  • Summary: This Western Digital went into my Dell laptop without any problems. My computer is now faster since this drive is high speed. I used to have a 80 GB drive, this 250 GB is much better.

Excellent drive & good value

TL, Amazon
15 November 2010
  • Summary: Performance has been excellent and was a decent price. I installed it in our Dell Inspiron 1525 as a replacement for the OEM hard drive which died. It's noticibly faster than the OEM drive even though it's of the same size and rpm - both running with Windows 7 home premium. I feel it's worth paying a little more for the drop sensor feature, which I highly value for preventing this one from dying prematurely like our previous one.

Works fine - no problems - bought due to drop sensor feature

Tech Reader, Amazon
2 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought this due to the drop sensor feature. This is a feature that is hard to test but sounds like it would be useful. This drive replaced a dead one in a friend's laptop and has worked perfectly. There's no issues of excessive heat or noise that I could discern.

Nice Hard Drive

Francisco Llanten Ortiz, Amazon
10 June 2010
  • Summary: It works properly after months of usage. Sometimes it is not as quiet as I would like. It makes a weird sound from time to time. Even though that, I think this hard drive is one of the best you could find at present.
