Excerpt: I bought this hard drive to replace a 5400rpm/500GB drive that came with my ASUS laptop. Very noticeable speed difference--computer seems much snappier. Only trouble I had was when switching out the drives, the connection on the new drive was just slightly higher than the old drive, and the old drive was in an enclosure that slid into the place where it connect. I had to bend the two case enclosure sliders down and then it fit and snapped in just fine.
Excerpt: I have two of these. One I have been using for over a year as an external back-up drive. The one just purchased is the main drive in my laptop. These drives travel a great deal and have performed perfectly so far.
Summary: This is the second WD Black I've purchased, the first one was a 500 GB, I put that one in my MBP I wanted more drive space so I put the 750 GB in. I've had the 500 GB for over a year, but still in good working order, I put the drive aside as a spare just incase of a drive failure. The 750 GB I've had now for several months and still going strong. Really to early to tell how long this drive will last. I should be able to get many years use out of it.
Summary: Top quality WD drive. The 5 year warranty is a clue. Runs great in my Samsung laptop. The 3 year old POC hard drive that I replaced (rhymes with "deathstar" and sounds like "Hibachi") never gave any indication of failure--no noise, no lost files, no slowing down. It just wouldn't boot up. Even the computer shop pros couldn't get anything off from it, so it was a complete re-do of everything on the computer.
Summary: I purchased this for my 2010 Mac Mini after the factory Hitachi drive failed. It definitely seems faster than the factory drive which was always a little sluggish and became nearly unbearable before it failed. Oddly, it took a week or so before I noticed the improvement in performance as it was a little sluggish as well after I had OSX installed.
