Used Not NEW

Lou D., Newegg
16 April 2015
  • Summary: This drive was not sold directly by Newegg but by one of their 3rd party vendors. A friend needed a new drive to replace the failing one a Toshiba laptop. I had them order this drive (WD Scorpio Black 320GB) and send it directly to me since I was doing the work.
  • Pros: It's almost what I ordered.
  • Cons: Received a used drive, NOT NEW.

It worked for 100 hours (max)

Hector C., Newegg
25 August 2013
  • Summary: I have filed an RMA with WD. The 2 eggs reflect the good warranty policy (5 years), otherwise it would have been the minimum 1 egg.
  • Pros: Nice price point. Good warranty.
  • Cons: I used it in an external enclosure as backup. I make monthly backups. That is, I used this drive 20+ times. I do not think that this drive has been up more than 100 hours. Yesterday it died on me.

Dead after 8 months

James T., Newegg
20 April 2013
  • Summary: This is the only Western Digital product I have EVER had an issue with. Luckily I had just acquired a MacBook Pro for school, so it wasn't the end of the world. Sadly, my Seagate 3TB external became corrupted(and has since done it again) about 2 weeks later.
  • Pros: Price.
  • Cons: Died after only 8 months of use.

Not happy.

Kemalcan Savasci, Amazon
20 January 2010
  • Summary: I bought this hard drive 2 months ago. At first it was great, though the 7200RPM didn't seem to make a lot of difference from the 5400 RPM drive I had earlier. Recently, (after 2 months) the hard drive started freezing up, at which point a forced restart is required.

Hard disk

12 August 2009
  • Summary: I was unable to get this to work. Better instructions would be helpful for less computer literate people such as myself. Physical fitting is easy, but I was unable to get my computer to set it up.

User Review

  • Excerpt: Купил для макбука [macbook] (стандартно стоит винт на 5400) — дак вот новый винт сильно шумнее старого. Я и прокладки под него делал, не помогает ни фига. Учитывая что сам макбук абсолютно тихий, то винт бесит очень сильно. Возможно это проблема всех семитысячников, других не прробовал.
  • Pros: Быстрый
  • Cons: Очень шумный
