It's not a new drive, it's "recertified".
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: 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.
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.
Summary: Was OE in Vostro 1520 Failed 10 mos into use. Owner reported no earlier prob but noted slow boot up on occasion. Failure was total and catastrophic with no ability to scavenge files although drive will initially spin up, not recognized on USB interface and note more than expected vibration on spin up. Dell replacing drive without question c/w orig W7 OS installed.
This drive is very fast, and so far has been reliable. (1 year mark)

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.
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

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.
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.
