Labeled Incorrectly!! Get product WD3200BJKT for FreeFall!
White Elephant, Amazon

Summary: I wish I had seen compugeek review before ordering. I just spent an hour with Western Digital Technical Support confirming the same thing. The unit in the box is not labeled as shown on external box. The unit does not have the FreeFall technology. My Western Digital Support case # is 110709-70709-6814926.
Summary: This product description is for a Western Digital WD3200KTRTL, with Free Fall Sensor. But Amazon shipped me a Western Digital 320 GB Scorpio Black SATA 7200 RPM 16 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Notebook Hard Drive WD3200BEKT , which is much less expensive, and does not have the Free fall Sensor. Other customers told Amazon about this mistake weeks ago, but they have not yet corrected the product page.
Summary: I can't really speak for the performance of this drive, but I can tell you that after receiving this drive and NOT seeing the Free Fall Sensor listed on the box as one of the features, I became concerned, as it was a primary reason for buying this model. After close to an hour with Western Digital's tech support they confirmed that this drive (WD3200KTRTL) DOES NOT have the Free Fall Sensor. The only drive that does is the WD3200BJTK in the 320 GB 2.5" notebook format.
Summary: I should have read the reviews on this drive before I bought it and I would have found that it is listed incorrectly. This drive does not have the "Free Fall Sensor" as other reviwers have pointed out. This retail package WD3200KTRTL actually contains a drive model WD3200BEKT. If you check Western Digital"s website you will find as I did that the WD3200BEKT does not have the "Free Fall Sensor". The model which does have the "Free Fall Sensor" is WD3200BJKT.

Summary: I did not read the other reviews before I completed my purchase, as I did not believe it would be wrong... WRONG, WRONG, WRONG... It is hard to believe that is still is listed on the site this way. After researching, it is my understanding that the retail version of the product would never have the free fall sensor, so be warned when you see RETAIL PACKAGING, it will have model: WD3200BEKT, not model: WD3200BJKT (this is the model with the free fall sensor).
Summary: The description on this item says that it has the fall sensor, but indeed it does not. What comes in the box is a WD3200BEKT. If you look that up, you will see that it is the model without the fall sensor.
Summary: Bought this for my PS3 and had nothing but problems. My PS3 would crash alot and freeze for no reason all the time, and things like Play TV would skip when viewing recordings - never understood what the problem was and assumed it was a software problem. Reinstalling things and using the service recovery menu never helped. Would constantly get corrupted data on the drive every time it crashed.
Summary: Bought this for my PS3 and had nothing but problems. My PS3 would crash alot and freeze for no reason, and things like Play TV would start skipping or freezing constantly - never understood what the problem was. Reinstalling things and using the service recovery menu never helped. Would constantly get corrupted data on the drive too. Eventually things stopped working completely and the PS3 couldn't recover from it.
