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.
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!
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.
Summary: Sorry to hear that this HD is no longer available. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for HD upgrade to laptops that are now 2 years old.
Pros: Excellent and Awesome HD! I purchased this WD Scorpio Black HD - 7200 RPM 16MB Cache Drive as an upgrade for my Acer laptop. I made the order in Feb. 2010 and the HD is still running smoothly and doesn't overheat. This was one of my concerns with the faster RPM speed. Prior to the upgrade, I had ...

Summary: I bought 2 of these from Amazon about 6 months ago, to replace the drives in my sons' and my PS3s. I had the 40GB version and they had the 80GB, so space was always at a premium. Time to upgrade.
