Great Notebook Upgrade!
Nicholas B., Newegg

Summary: Newegg did a great job packaging this product! Not a scratch in the mail.
Pros: Bought this for a costumer of mine that was looking for an upgrade for her notebook computer. These are a few things I like about this product: -Quiet operation. -High-Quality construction and components. -Definite improvement if you're upgrading from a 5,400 rpm drive.
Cons: I don't have anything bad to say yet about this product.
Cons: Bought in Jan 2015 to replace a 5 year old Hitachi HDD (just in case) used for about one month sporadically. Was assigned overseas, back in country last month. WD drive did not boot up at all. WD has offered to replace but on my dollars for postage and special required packaging plus gas to UPS e...
Summary: They are a little dated and long in the tooth now and I've moved on to SSD. The drives are being moved to more of a passive duty for music and movies, but I still use all of them
Pros: The best drives I have used. My WD Blacks run 7x24 for the most part. Started buying these when they were SATA 3.0 and stayed with them for the speed and reliability. SATA 6.0 was a nice bump and I kept buying them. Never a failure or complaint. The earliest drives have outlasted the warranty and...
Cons: They do get a bit warm when pushed but reasonably cool otherwise. I haven't seen any effect on performance.
Summary: This is my 2nd one of these (3rd, counting the warranty replacement). WD is very good about warranty returns, will even cross-ship. This one will be used as an external backup drive for a WD 750MB drive in a laptop. NE
Pros: 5 year warranty. WD has never let me down (only had to replace one under warranty out of over a dozen various WD Black drives).
Cons: Last one died about 1 year into the 5 year warranty. If not for that, would be 5 eggs.
