Drive Great - Packing and Shipping Not

bentsnake, Amazon
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. If you have any noticeable noise or vibration it's nothing that should be there. Back up your data and think about filing a warranty claim. I say these drives are reliable, but they're still mechanical devices with moving parts.

Was happy.. till it died 8 months later

UG-geek, Amazon
16 September 2011
  • Summary: I was rather happy with this Hard Disk initially. Speeds were improved when I upgraded from the stick 5400 RPM drive that comes with my macbook pro to this disk. Unfortunately, it definitely was much louder, generated a lot more heat to the extent that I could no longer put the laptop on my laps as I could before, and then to cap it all off, it died without any warning suddenly eight months later. No bad sounds, nothing to even give a hint of warning.

Dålig

xpern, Prisjakt
28 September 2011
  • Summary: Köpte en sån här för att ha i en digitalbox, men den låter/brummar förskräckligt. Jag sitter 3m ifrån min TV (och box), men den störde så mycket att jag tog ut den efter 5 minuter. Helt klart ett felköp av mig. Kan inte uttala mig om prestanda etc..

Festplatte

René G, Amazon
24 January 2011
  • Summary: Hallo, Ich habe diese Festplatte für mein MacBook 15" unibody (Januar 2009) gekauft und gegen meine 250GB platte ausgetauscht. 2.53 Ghz 4Gb RAM Habe das System neu installiert und dann per Time Machine Backup alle Daten widerhergestellt. Die Festplatte friert immer ein, und es lässt sich nicht gut arbeiten damit. Der Systemstart wurde verlangsamt und es lässt sich nicht mal ein Time Machine Backup erstellen, da die Platte immer wider einfiert.
