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.

Highest capacity available for older notebooks.

Inspector Clouseau, Amazon

  • 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.

Very good, big IDE drive

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 October 2010
  • Summary: Replaced the 80GB drive in my VAIO which was very easy to do. Drive works fine although there may be a slight increase in noise and vibration but not significant. This was the biggest IDE (PATA) drive I could find and I now have more space than I need.

Bought to replace the stock 80Gb unit in an Asus W5F

A. R. Bullock, Amazon
1 October 2010
  • Summary: Unfortunately the laptop I have is pre-SATA, so no SSD replacement was worth it due to the slow IDE interface speed. However at 4x the original disk size I can now get many more OS-es on my laptop (originally Win-XP) with maybe a small reducton in power consumpton since the HDD technology has...

Quality comes at a price....a low one.

  • Pros: Cheap, good capacity, excellent performance
  • Cons: Not found any yet

It's not hard to drive in the west

  • Excerpt: All computers need a many things to do the job they are supposed to do, from a processor to a motherboard, but a Personal Computer would not be so personal with a hard drive to keep all that important information on it.
  • Pros: good space, great price and works a charm
  • Cons: not quite the full 320GB stated but hey .  .  .  .
