Summary: I am quite happy that, after a long time looking for this drive, I found it available. I have several of these, though a couple of them have a slightly different model number, the descriptions of the drives are the same. It is quiet and works, as it should. It is a little bit of a put-off that the price is so high for these drives, but if one needs one, I guess one must pay the price.
Summary: I have used Western Digital hard drives exclusively in over 500 computers I have built and repaired and in that time I have had just two failures - both of which were DOA and were replaced immediately by my usual dealer. This drive in particular is the first I have ever purchased through Amazon and I was delighted with the speed it was shipped to me and MOST IMPORTANTLY - the packaging was absolutely first rate.
Summary: I am perfectly delighted with my purchases as these 2 HDDs do their job properly. Work fine with my old IBM T42 and 43 laptops. I am happy to own them as I could exchange these ones from 2 older ones. And (but not last) I received these items before my due purchase dates, very rapidly. Thank You very much, Dear seller! Keep up selling and posting like that!
Summary: Bought this for my Acer to replace a tiny 60GB drive. Simplest drive replacement I have ever done. Massive increase in storage (obviously), runs virtually silent and does seem to be quicker than my original Toshiba drive.
Summary: I needed a replacement PATA (IDE) hard drive for my laptop as the existing c drive was full to the extent that I could not update any programs any more. Unfortunately the laptop would not accept a SATA drive. This was cheaper on Amazon than anywhere else I could find, arrived very promptly, slotted straight in and, hey presto, problem solved. Been using it for a month or so now and no problems. It's even a bit quieter than my old 60Gb drive.
