Summary: The only reason I haven't returned it was because a cheap old IDE drive is fairly hard to come by and it had low wear on it. I got an old HP Pavilion DV4000 laptop for free that I converted into a Smoothwall that needed a new drive and this fit the bill.
Pros: This one works and was available.
Cons: Buyer beware! Looking at the drive it was evident that this drive was being sold as new but was previously used/active for over 8000 hours (2 years) based on the the drives SMART logging and firmware. This drive is way over priced for an old piece of used hardware.
Summary: I had to replace the hard drive on my older laptop. Although this item was listed as "new", software diagnostic program showed this HD as having had several hours of use. It installed OK, and accepted the transfer of all my data, but... ???
Summary: I purchased the 80Gb hard drive knowing that WD has now discontinued making IDE drives in 2013 and I stocked up for my laptops that specifically require the IDE type. Decent storage size and price for a laptop. Really fast shipment and well packaged. I will be buying more before they are all gone.
