Bought 2, 1 died within 2 weeks of use.

  • Summary: I've pretty much exclusively switched to WD due to poor reliability with other manufacturers. The RMA process is good just wish I didn't have to use it so quick; had 2 WD black 750's die within the month.
  • Pros: Good speeds. Value.
  • Cons: 1 died within 2 weeks of light use.

Good price, capacity and performance!

Brandon T., Newegg

  • Summary: Been using WD drives for a very long time, very rarely do they fail me so I order them for my Data-center environments as well.
  • Pros: Cheap, good performance spindle disk. Gotta love when you have two of these in RAID 0 for your games/storage in an Alienware 18 R1.
  • Cons: None at all! Too bad the original one in my Alienware 18 died forcing me to purchase this one, since the laptop isn't under warranty any longer and it was an "OEM" drive, I couldn't replace it via the WD Support site :(

Update

Richard K., Newegg
7 October 2015
  • Summary: This review is an update from my previous review where I ran into problems with cloning the drive with the Acronis True Image WD Edition software. The problem was rectified by plugging the power cable into the Apricorn DriveWire device that I had attached between the laptop and this new drive.
  • Pros: Great 750 GB hard drive by Western Digital! Drive spins at 7200 rpm and is an excellent upgrade from the 160 GB drive that came with my Toshiba laptop over seven years ago.
  • Cons: None so far.

Great little drive but WD's downloadable software has proprietary limitations

Richard K., Newegg
6 October 2015
  • Summary: I bought this drive because of its advertised faster performance capabilities and because of the increased storage space. I originally attempted to clone the drive using an Apricorn DriveWire device and EZ-Gig software, but the software got stuck after I chose my original hard drive as the source...
  • Pros: Product arrived in excellent condition and in superior packaging. Seems like a perfect upgrade from an older 160 GB hard drive that originally came with my Toshiba laptop in 2008.
  • Cons: WD Acronis True Image software for cloning the data from my non-WD hard drive to the new WD hard drive is useless as I have to have the new WD hard drive installed in the laptop in order to do anything. This means that I have to install Windows, then install the WD software, but then I might as w...

Great Notebook Upgrade!

Anonymous, Newegg
30 September 2015
  • 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.
