A real bargain. Very quiet. Good brand.
19 September 2010
Summary: For less than $50 320GB is a lot space and made my purchase a real bargain. I considered a 5400 RPM HDD keeping in mind heat and consumption. So far so good. It's a very silent HDD and it seems pretty fast. Western Digital is a brand with reputation. Nonetheless, I couldn't find any information about product registration and warranty.
Summary: This is a good item but, Picture is a RETAIL box and the item that showed up was a foam packed box not a retail packaged product. why show one thing and ship another.. thats not cool. Product does work well and is a good value but still.. I thought I was getting a retail packaged product..
Summary: Bought this 320gb to replace my 160gb HDD in my laptop. I have an XPS M1530 and this hard drive popped right in, no problems, in two minutes. I have noticed however, that there seems to be more of the operating noise than I remembered in the previous stock HDD. Increased capacity is nice though and it seems fast enough. Good deal too at $85.
Summary: I ordered it for my PS3 Super Slim 12GB and it works just fine. Installation was easy and the system recognised the HDD in seconds without any tricks. Its very quiet and the temperture of my console seems the same since. There are faster and bigger drives on the market, but for this price its a real bargain. Note for PS3 Super Slim 12GB owners: you will need an official PS3 HDD Mounting Bracket in order to install any hard drives.
Summary: Works fine, good price, silent enough, cool enough. Still it seems to be slower than Samsung HM400JI which is 400GB but also SATA, 2.5, 5400RPM, 8MB cache. I did only one test, maybe I'm wrong... Good product anyway!
Summary: Bought this to upgrade my Acer One netbook as I accidentally dropped it and was not sure if I could hear the harddrive clicking (as in 'click of death'). Was a toss up between Seagate or Hitachi, but the WD reviews gave this the edge. Easy to install and my netbook (also upgraded the ram & wifi card at the same time) recognised it automatically, so loads more drive space to listen to my music (CDs ripped to FLAC and listening with Foobar2000 to a dedicated headphone amp...
Summary: If like me you are going to install this on your PS3 then this may help you. Back up your files or use the backup option on the menu After you have swapped the drive over which takes a couple of minutes you'll reboot to see that you have to install the system update software. Download the system update software from the playstation site to your PC. The next bit is the bit that had me stuck until I tracked down the information on the web.
Summary: I used this drive for my Macbook and I have to say -so far- has proven to be very good.Because I fitted it into a Mac I needed to format the drive using Apple's disk utility before my computer could recognize the drive. The drive is very quite and is much better than anything else that I have used. For the money it is super value and a lot cheaper than buying an equivalent from APPLE.
