  • Summary: This is the second internal hard drive I have purchased from Western Digital and is the second one that has failed both worked for about a year or so and then the "clicking" came and apparently that means it is no longer any good due to an internal failure. unfortunate.

This drive has a lot of problems now that I looked at reviews

Lumiere, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this because I wanted to upgrade my PS3's 80 GB hard drive, as it is now getting full. After getting it, I figured I'd put this in my laptop and do some swapping with my 3 current 2.5" hard drives in use. I cloned my existing Western Digital Scorpio Black 250 GB hard drive onto it with some troubles. I had to fix some problems, because it didn't clone my Vista partition correctly, and the MBR was also corrupt. After fixing it, it worked great. For a while.

2/2 Drive Failures so far

Essential Gadgets, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • Summary: I like WD and usually have great luck with their drives. Unfortunately this drive is a lemon. Bought a new 2010 13.3 MBP (Mac Book Pro). Got this drive to upgrade it so i could run both OSX and Win 7 and have plenty of space for data. 1st drive was problematic out of the box. Many hangs etc. Ran WD's diags off the website - drive failed the quick test. Ordered another one from amazon and they refunded me the money on this one.

Best Price Too bad it came Broken

Nathan, Amazon
1 July 2010
  • Summary: So I purchased this Hardrive from amazon completely excited to replace my Macbook's harddrive. when I received it i automatically took it to the apple store to put it in. when i went to the apple store they realized it was a defective unit. i bought it brand new too. So i returned it and bought it from a physical store and it works great now. the product is great and amazon was more than happy to refund me but be careful to give yourself time incase this happens to you.

Horrible product! Try your luck at your own risk!

E.L., Amazon
25 February 2010
  • Summary: Horrible hard-drive! Amazon should not stock this item! It's a disgrace to Amazon's name! Problem started the minute I finished installing the operating system. I can't even watch a smooth Youtube video without it constantly spinning up and down. The video will stop and lag when the drive actually stops dead with clicking sounds before spinning up again! Ridiculous! It's so loud to the point that I feel like there is an added fan inside of my Macbook!

NO MORE POS NOTEBOOK DRIVES FOR ME

Robert Salita "Software Developer", Amazon
19 December 2009
  • Summary: Another well behaved drive from WD. I congratulate them on their consistent quality. The drive replaces a loud, power sucking POS drive from Seagate. Thanks Dell for sticking me with an inferior product. You deserve your sales plunge. Update 12-Jan-2010: Drive failed after 57 days. I'M SO DONE WITH UNRELIABLE NOTEBOOK HARD DRIVES. FROM NOW ON, IT'S SSDs ONLY. Update 3-Jun-2010: In a way, I'm lucky I bought a failed drive from WD.

Leider schon nach 1,5 Jahren defekt

Micha, Amazon
13 June 2012
  • Summary: Die Festplatte hat leider schon nach 1,5 Jahren ihren Geist aufgegeben. Da ich sie in meinem Notebook verbaut gekauft habe, übernimmt WD selber keine Garantie mehr.

Брать не стоит

Onliner
27 February 2012

  • Pros: Тихий, малое энергопотребление
  • Cons: Постоянно летят сектора, тормознутый

Данный Винчестер проходим мимо.

Дмитрий, Onliner
13 February 2012

  • Pros: Цена?!
  • Cons: Очень ненадежен.
