WD Scorpio Black 500GB

Anonymous, Newegg
3 January 2013
  • Summary: The hitachi hdd I had in my Lenovo T500 was to small so I replaced it. I took this model over the wd blue just because of the guarantee. I was sceptical about the noise (the hitachi is a very quiet hdd) but the difference isnt very big.
  • Pros: 5 year guarantee, slightly faster than my old Hitachi 5400 rpm drive but not very faster in everyday use, not noisy how I expected it to be and how people say it is, no vibrations at all.
  • Cons: In idle a low noise is present which is not constant but oscillates from time to time. In use there isn't much difference, noise is there but the oscillating dissapears.

Dead in Two Years

Charles S., Newegg
14 November 2012
  • Summary: This is my second WD Scorpio Black drive to fail within the warranty period. WD is pretty good about their RMAs, but it'd be better if it would just last a few years without flaking out. One more year and I would have replaced the entire computer anyway...
  • Pros: 5 year warranty, high performance (at the time of purchase)
  • Cons: Died without warning. >(

Drive Great - Packing and Shipping Not

25 October 2012
  • Summary: Another reviewer's uploaded images show a well packed drive in a factory-style shipping carton. That's not what I got. The drive itself is a Western Digital Black, sold worldwide. These drives are reliable, and essentially silent.

Nice Drive - If It Would Last

Mark R., Newegg
24 July 2012
  • Summary: A Tale Of Two Hard Drives. Bought 1st drive here in April of 2011. Brand new drive was bad. Newegg RMA'd it for me without a problem. That drive just developed a couple of bad sectors a few days ago. Beyond Newegg's 30 day replacement time so I RMA'd it with WD.
  • Pros: 500 GB, 7200 RPM in a laptop hard drive. Newegg satisfaction policy! Western Digital 5 Year Warranty!
  • Cons: WD must've had a bad batch.

PS3 Perfect

ava0510, Amazon
18 January 2012
  • Summary: Bought to replace the tiny 60gb drive that came with my PS3. With the number of digital games these days 500gb is a pretty good choice. Installation was easy and this drive works like a champ. I think it's great for the purpose.
