Very satisfied with Western Digital.

  • Summary: Upgraded my LapTop with this and it worked fine. Western Digital provides a cloning software package that is essential to doing the job. Download is free but only works with WD drives.

Suited to purpose

Joseph T., Newegg
11 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to put into an empty 2.5" USB3.0 external enclosure I had to use as a backup drive. It took over an hour just to format. Speed isn't essential in this application though, and the drive is otherwise good for its intended uses. I'd buy another for this use.
  • Pros: Quiet, cool.
  • Cons: Slow, but see other thoughts.

Solid drive for laptops.

Ramblin' Rex, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: Every couple of years I replace the disk drive in my Inspiron 1525 just to avoid a disk crash. Each upgrade provides more space: 320GB, 500GB and now 750GB. Along the way, I added a Ubuntu partition of only 60GB. Ubuntu has turned out to be a very good alternative to the Mac OS X and especially the Windows 8 disaster. When I chose this disk, I went for the size so that I could expand my Ubuntu file system.

Bad out of the box

Anonymous, Newegg
2 June 2014
  • Summary: If you do get a good drive... congrats.
  • Pros: This is a nice cheap drive.
  • Cons: The hard drive was bad right out of the box. The second bad one in less than a week and 3rd in a month. I have been faithful to WD for years but the recent problems are causing me to reconsider.

Good product

Joyful, Radioshack
25 May 2014
  • Excerpt: We bought this hard drive because our hard drive crashed. We had a few problems when we first installed from our computer's recovery disk. Our OS was Windows Vista and several programs needed a signature with this hard drive. Once we installed our free Windows 7 upgrade, that problem was solved. That was a little tricky because we had to start the computer in the mode to "ignore signatures" or something like that in order to get Windows 7 installed.
  • Pros: Good Price

Not for ps3 Fat

Stevan Connors, Amazon
16 May 2014
  • Summary: Bought this hard drive to go into original ps3 fat. It would run so slow. Just beware because some people say it will work in ps3 make sure you know which model they put it in. Fact original PS3 that i have will only handle a 500gb max drive anything higher it is really slow. Get all info before purchase. It does work great as a usb drive.

Giving laptop new life

Todd B. Marshall "withglee", Amazon
11 May 2014
  • Summary: My laptop had about 200GB of hard disk space. It was nearly full and software was starting to slowdown or break. I had some serious housekeeping to do or I needed a new laptop. I bought this hard drive; found some free software to transfer my laptop image to it; and switched the hard drives. I now am basking in drive space and I have a 200GB hard drive which I can clear and use for backup. The process was painless (though took substantial time to make image ...
