WD Blue 500 GB Mobile Hard Drive - good option!
29 April 2013
Summary: It works well, very easy to install (this might change depending on your laptop). It replaced my OEM HD (which sucked! Lenovo Ideapad's HD died twice in two years - literally died) for a fraction of the cost with same features.
Summary: Four of five ordered new perform okay after several months, one could not be formatted. The 8mb cache makes them distinctly slower than the 16mb cache they replaced, if speed is a consideration.
