Good price and reliable hard drive

j, Amazon
22 January 2015
  • Summary: Bought it for an HP Pavilion dv8000. This model has two 2.5" PATA drives. 320Gb is the biggest 2.5" PATA drive made and they are becoming harder to find. This one cast about $130 and was the lowest price I could find. I use the HP dv8000 to copy and burn CDs and DVDs. The drive is working just fine.

Got for laptop repair

  • Summary: A client of mine had an older Dell that HDD went belly up. I replaced with drive but the old machine only recognized like 170GB due to BIOS. But it has been reliable and good drive. And I don't normally like Western Digital since their QA is crap. I've seen more QD drive clicking than any other brand in the last 5-7 years. If it wasnt for the price and client choice, I'd pic a Seagate.

Dell Inspiron 600M

  • Summary: Western Digital 320 GB Scorpio Blue 100 Mb/s 5400 RPM 8 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Notebook Hard Drive - WD3200BEVE In an effort to save money during rough times, I decided to repair my Dell Inspiron 600m from college days. The Dell hard drive failed and I saw a 320GB for $75. This drive has 4 out of 5 stars because it is an easy install for a newbie (like me). Just make sure you buy PATA/EIDE drive NOT SATA.

No Jumper

SeaPea, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this drive to replace a smaller C drive in a Compaq laptop. Achieved this by putting this drive in an external case (cost $14) and attached it to the laptop with a USB cable. I then went to the WD website, where you can download a free copy of Acronis True Image software that will allow you to easily clone your existing drive. The software walks you through the cloning process and even tells you when to swap the drives.

Highest capacity available for older notebooks.

Inspector Clouseau, Amazon
4 October 2009
  • Summary: I've decided it's time to make some upgrades for my notebook, like increase HD and RAM. I spent some time looking for a good replacement and perhaps WD3200BEVE is one of the highest HD capacity (320GB, PATA) you can find for older notebooks/laptops on the market. There are plenty of choices available for 120-160GB, but not so many if you like go with bigger HD. Overall I'm happy with my choice.

WD 1600 BEVE 160 GB HD

Ken "Ken", Amazon
19 September 2009
  • Summary: There seems to be some confusion. Most of the reviews seem to have been written about different hard drives. This review is about the: WD1600 BEVE 16GB, 2.5 Notebook Hard Drive. The WD1600BEVE is a Parallel PATA or ParallelATA or EIDE. It has a plug of over 42 pins in two rows. The other common model is a SATA or Serial ATA which has no plug or pins. Its PC board plugs directly into a socket. Don't get the two mixed up, like I did.

320GB 2.5 laptop hard drive

M. Klinker, Amazon
27 May 2009
  • Summary: Bought this as an upgrade for a smaller (max'd out) drive on my Dell Lap Top. It worked very well, quiet and quick access. I would have liked the install disk though. Had to download from the WD website and burn a boot disk in order to get things going. A minor nuisance, to be sure, but nevertheless an extra step.
