Still kicking

  • Cons: Has been clicking for probably 3 years now

Charles M., Newegg

Re: WD Failures

Alycia M., Newegg
15 October 2013
  • Summary: "Because of the exceptional ratings on Newegg and everywhere else, and Google's research showing that hard drive quality and brand are not correlated, I decided to give WD another chance despite my previous bad experience with it.
  • Pros: I have several WD drives ranging from Caviar Green to Raptors. All of them have worked flawlessly. I never had to RMA or reformat bc of issues.
  • Cons: Only cons would be some of them put out a bit of noise but nothing really noticeable.

  • Summary: I love ontrack shipping on the west coast ... they are the best and everything comes in perfect condition with great service at the door. Thanks
  • Pros: I used this to replace a dead drive in a old HP laptop for someone. They have been very pleased so far with the performance Drive installed without any issue (bios read it along with the windows 7 setup disc) Windows installed with no issue and seemed pretty speed with load time and the initial i...
  • Cons: Seemed a little warmer than I expected .. didn't have time to run temps though.

Great Drive with a few minor concerns

Daniel B., Newegg
12 June 2013
  • Pros: This was a fast, reliable drive with high capacity (at the time of purchase). I've owned this drive for a bout 2 years. No issues.
  • Cons: My drive is a bit noisier than others have reported. For about a year, the drive would make beeping noises and some worrisome clicks, but either by driver or other software update, this seems to have been fixed.

Allen M., Newegg
26 February 2013
  • Summary: I got this one to replace WD Scorpion Blue that crashed in its forth year in a Toshiba Satellite A305D. The installation took 5 minutes, and it was up and running in no time. The drive is very quite, and the boot up speed is noticeably faster.
  • Pros: quite, fast (7200 rpm), reasonably priced.
  • Cons: None so far

I LOVE IT!!!

Stephen F., Newegg
18 January 2013
  • Summary: Keep in mind when upgrading the HDD of a PS3, the drive will be completely empty. Therefor you will need to download the PS3's Operating System Firmware from the Sony website. You then need a flash drive. What you want to do is open your flash drive folder, and make a folder called PS3.
  • Pros: Great Brand Great Series Massive Space Great Price 5 Year Warranty I bought this to replace my stock 80GB inside my PS3. Installed, and formatted with no problems. Downloaded all my games, and demos, installed perfectly. I only paid $60 for this drive. Seems to work well, no weird sounds like cli...
  • Cons: I removed 1 egg because of the way Newegg shipped it. Normally, they wrap these things in bubble wrap inside of a small box, and then they put the smaller box inside a Newegg box very secure. This was not the case with this drive. The drive was held by two plastic slot things inside a small box t...

Good decent mobile HD

Greg W., Newegg
1 December 2012
  • Summary: Overall, this is a good smaller hard drive replacement for a laptop computer. My issue is that it's a little expensive in my mind for the size. The Thailand flood really made prices inflate and the quality of hard drives in general have went down.
  • Pros: Low failure rate in feedback. These WD Black mobile drives have been very good to me so far and I have used a few.
  • Cons: Used a couple in desktop computers and was a little disappointed at the speed. That said, this is not a desktop HD. Cannot knock it for that. I still the think the price is high for what you get.
