Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"It also has a nice large cache memory, effectively speeding up most disk intensive work without consuming additional battery power What is not to love here? "
_
"In downside it got a little vibration and reduces battery life which is completely fine with me as it gives me back the performance i wanted to have."
_
"The disk works well, it's fast, silent, and gives me longer battery life than the OEM disk (that being said, the Hitachi disk had been malfunctioning prior to its demise, so it's possible it was draining the battery faster than normal)."
_
"I see no problems with startup time, battery life, or any of the other problems some disk drives have."
_
"I upgraded from a Seagate 7200RPM drive and the difference is night in day, more storage, absolutely no noise or vibration (the Seagate was terrible in this regard), and slightly better battery life."
_
"This is an excellent pick for anyone wanting to get an extra couple of years from their 3 year old laptop as hard drives are among the first components to start failing (along with keyboard and battery) but very easy to replace."
_
"It gives her laptop great performance with no impact on battery life for her laptop."
_
"Battery does drain pretty fast with both drives running but I rarely use the laptop unplugged for very long so it doesn't really bother me."
_
"Works great I bought this and a new battery to give my old laptop some new life."
_
"Pros:High speedDurabilitySaves on battery lifeCons:Slightly louder than most drivesSummary:Great drive, well worth every penny"
_
"The disk works well, it's fast, silent, and gives me longer battery life than the OEM disk (that being said, the Hitachi disk had been malfunctioning prior to its demise, so it's possible it was draining the battery faster than normal)."

Boot

Boot:
"I tried formatting it and now I have boot error and nothing is recognized."
_
"The machine came with a 750GB 5400RPM drive which, while serviceable, doesn't play all that nicely with Windows 8.1 (slow boot times, relatively slow thumbnail performance, etc)."
_
"I used a USB to SATA adaptor and a clone program (via boot CD) to copy the contents from her failing drive to this new drive (Clone software was Casper."
_
"This drive was for a friend's HP G62-144DX laptop where the existing drive would not boot to Windows and failed the drive manufacturer's test routine."
_
"The hard drive's arm is getting stuck and causing the boot failure on laptop."
_
"It made a boot disk that allowed my to go in, find my missing 400gb, create a partition for it and format that partition so it could be seen and used, FYI I am using Windows 7."
_
"No, boot errors and windows installation recognized the drive this time."
_
"this unit is a good unit it holds a large amount of data and it boots up nice and fast,it works with no issues, just be careful when physically installing it in your computer device, don't touch any of the exposed circuit board on the bottom of it, and don't drop it."
_
"This drive is solid, responsive, allows quick boot up and is overall a great value in my estimation."
_
"The boot up time with Windows has been consistently a good experience, though not as fast as a Flash disk."
_
"ENOUGH ROOM ON THE HARDDRIVE IT BOOTS UP FAST AND ITS OVERALL NOT TOO LOUD, I WAS VERY WORRIED ABOUT THE NOISE BUT SURPRISINGLY ITS NOT A BOTHER AT ALL, NOT LIKE OTHER HARDDRIVES THAT ARE SUPER LOUD"

Cache

Cache:
"The listing states this WD Black 320 GB Mobile Hard Drive: 2.5 Inch, 7200 RPM, SATA II, 16 MB Cache, 5 Year Warranty - WD3200BEKTThe Drive failed after 22 months ."
_
"my options were this vs Hitachi GST Travelstar 0S03563 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache...the problem with the HGST is there are no speed test reviews on websites known for reviewing hard drives.. so while that 250gb would have been cool i would have rather gone with a drive i knew was ranked as #1 in its size vs the extra 250gb for possibly slower speed."
_
"I purchased this product because my original hard drive failed and decided to upgrade from 5200 to 7200 rpm and from 8 MB cache to 16."
_
"I needed to replace my PS3 drive after it apparently has bad sectors on it (still investigating that drive now that it is out of the console) and a 750GB drive, 7200RPM, and 16MB cache seemed like a good dead for 80-ish bucks(Of course the 3GB SATA is wasted as PS3 does not support that)."
_
"Very fast for the cache it has and working well."
_
")The higher the Cache the better pretty standard 2.5 is 16mb and 3.5 is 32-64mb)Western Digital Related Section:(I 100% back WD products, Hitachi is a wonderful product line as well and they are from what I can tell the most trusted brand at the current moment."
_
"A rather large hard drive running at 7200 rpm, 16 MB cache.........speed up your system, quick and easy."
_
"High speed read write, 16 MB cache, Works extremely well in my Dell Precision M6400 Laptop."
_
"The larger cache and access speed is a nice change from the standard drives that Dell usually fits into these things."

_
"In case someone is thinking of upgrading and is worried about Windows 8 comparability, there is no need to worry."
_
"A good upgrade for the price, and in our case a good replacement for the original drive which was failing."
_
"Cloning across brands typically causes more problems, and I had none in this case except having to restart 2 or 3 times when prompted by the Acronis before cloning could begin."
_
"Can;t report on reliability sinc ethe drive is too new but the 5 year warranty is nice in case this one fails in the next few years."

Connection

Connection:
"Bad sectors, which lead to weird behavior when connecting it to a computer."
_
"So the net result is that when you install a 3Gb s drive in this computer, the SATA connection experiences occasional bit errors, which causes the link to be reset for periods of exactly 30 seconds."
_
"It's not fast.. Also good for temporary movie viewing like connecting to an HD-TV, or Blu-ray DVD Player with a USB connector."
_
"Apple makes it very easy to reinstall the OS via your internet connection."
_
"I would recommend this drive for laptops with Sata II connections, if your laptop is Sata III go with an SSD as the performance boost will be worth the cost..."
_
"I would recommend, works in all notebooks w Sata connection."
_
"I checked connections, settings, etc, and everything was good."

_
"I was lucky enough to get a newer version of this hard drive without the extra cost and it works great."
_
"All of these people that I have seen have recommended watching for the one with the Free Fall Sensor as when falling it parks the reader arm and reduces risk of damage to the HDD or the Data on it... Well its nice and all to have that extra security it comes at a major cost."
_
"For the cost this Hard drive performs as well as I could expect it to."
_

Partition

Partition:

_
"It made a boot disk that allowed my to go in, find my missing 400gb, create a partition for it and format that partition so it could be seen and used, FYI I am using Windows 7."
_
"Those of us who only get OEM disks, or none at all as is becoming the trend with recovery partitions, would never, ever be able to figure this out... and much less get into the advanced boot options of their OS disk because there ARE NONE on OEM disks, you'd have to pirate and burn a OS ISO disk just to preload drivers for this HDD!"

Power:
"It also has a nice large cache memory, effectively speeding up most disk intensive work without consuming additional battery power What is not to love here? "
_
":-)+ Very quiet+ Good price+ Low power especially given it's a 7200 RPM drive (qualitatively assessed: gave no problems in a drive enclosure with my USB 2.0 powered laptop port that has given me power problems on even some 5400 RPM other drives)+ Very important!"
_
"I am happy and so far 2 weeks not even one error , boot up time improved, and i got some more power in side my machine."
_
"After thorough research I've learned this to be an incompatibility between the drives power saver, and windows power saver functions."

_
"I just recently bought an HP laptop with great specs for a super great price... Only problem was that the hard disk was a bit smallish."
_
"I honestly don't think there is anything to complain about-the price, the size, and the speed of the hard drive make it worth while."

Read

Read:
"folders become unresponsive and wont read completely."
_
"Thing is, 6 months out, computer starts to crash, go to event logs, and low and behold, HD failure to read."
_
"The few bad reviews I read about this hard drive are completely wrong."
_
"Just got it and the speed is noticable hope it has longetivy because those were some of the downsides i read about its competition in seagate"
_
"So far I'm just finishing up getting everything installed again and the HDD seems to be working fine...Pros: Fast read write Easy installation Super fast shippingCons: The HDD does feel very noticeably hotter than my previous one, but I have a USB powered fan with my laptop so it is not a big issueI've also read people complaining about the noise..."
_
"I did a BIOS test on the hard drive and it showed read errors straight off."
_
"Quite, runs pretty cool, very good read write times."
_
"I should have read ALL the reviews, but have had great luck with WD in the past."
_
"Two - The 2.5 Form factor drives are made for laptops and some (pretty much everyone) people like to show their friends colleagues something on their laptop real quick this poses the problem that the HDD is equiped with a sensor that only needs a 200ms long jolt (Far less than the amount of time it takes someone to pick up a laptop and position it on another surface) in any direction (because the Free Fall Sensor has to be able to recognize it could be falling upside down also) and the read write arm will park itself to brace for impact."
_
"Only rated it 4 stars becuase i thought it would have better read and write speeds other than that it is a great hard drive"
_
"slipped into the laptop with little issues ... then just cloned my old install to it and it works like a champ doubled my space and got a nice little speed bump in read and write speeds over the 5400 standard drive"

Reliable

Reliable:
"frustrating, but drive is reliable and fast."
_
"So far so good,..honestly, you don't really know how good it is until it fails you again,..hopefully that it will outlast the laptop itself,..establishing a reliable name brand at a decent price does count in my book for long term buying from a particular manufacturer,..in this case Western Digital."
_
"I thought about going broke with a 1 TB drive but couldn't find reliable drives @ 7200 rpm and besides all that extra space was sheer overkill for me; anything over 320 GB seemed like a waste."
_
"Drive is quiet, reliable, easy to install and runs fast."
_
"Western Digital black drives are fast and reliable -- a great value combination."
_
"However, Western Digital drives have proven to be the most reliable brand that I've had the pleasure to install in the hundreds of builds and those many repair jobs that I've done."
_
"A good product with reliable reputation."

Screw

Screw:
"I was not able to find any drives that included the cages and screws."
_
"Only hiccup was trying to get the 4 screws off original HD to this one...Good price, fast delivery, excellent packaging."
_
"My HD was accessible from the front (not the bottom) but there is a screw you need to remove from the bottom first (which is hidden behind a small tab you have to pull out on the bottom of the system)."
_
"What I didn't realize was that there was a plastic loop attaching the front panel to the screw so I broke that loop when prying the front panel off to get to the HD."
_
"It does not come with screws which I found to be the only downside."
_
"Installation was easy -- removing a few screws and putting them back on."
_
"Did not come with screws but otherwise everything was good."
_
"Once that was done, it just slid into the hard drive slot, attached one screw and it was good to go."
_
"Only hiccup was trying to get the 4 screws off original HD to this one...Good price, fast delivery, excellent packaging."
_
"(you need to make sure you have a T6 torque screw and a small screw driver) this is fairly easy to get, you can order it on here in a set."

Service

Service:
"Dell is useless as it attempts to charge for EVERYTHING when once service was cheerfully provided gratis."
_
"Anyone who is planning on installing this on a machine with Windows 7 should be aware that this new drive has some issues that render it incompatible with restore discs released before service pack 1."
_
"Put into service for a Windows 7U environment, no issues or hiccups to date."
_
"Western digital customer service has been awesome whenever, I've had Hard drive problems in the past as the Black line of Hard drives come with a 5 year warranty."
_
"In a Sony Vaio SZ650N, it's a big upgrade over the stock 5400 RPM drive, but the battery drain is noticeable (whether that's related to the rotational speed or to the stock drive being a Hybrid HDD is the unanswered question here).Installation is not easy but with a service manual it's not impossible either."

_
"Good price and fast shipping."

Silent

Silent:
"Also the drive is pretty silent, I was a little worried it being loud for a 7400rpm drive but that wasn't an issue at all."
_
"I have no complaints so far about this drive - it is silent, fast, and it has about doubled the time my battery lasts - so much so that I have to wonder if there was not something wrong with my past drive."
_
"Black drives are typically a little louder than Blues or Greens, but this one isn't audible whatsoever even in a dead silent room."
_
"Dead silent."
_
"Not to mention I don't hear any crackling sounds when in use from this one unlike the factory one, it seems to be pretty silent."
_
"simply great (I love WD), fast 7200 rpm, spacious 750 gb & silent drive!"
_
"Works very good fast and silent."
_
"Good- It was as quiet as my Toshiba and near silent when spinning."
_
"The disk works well, it's fast, silent, and gives me longer battery life than the OEM disk (that being said, the Hitachi disk had been malfunctioning prior to its demise, so it's possible it was draining the battery faster than normal)."

Transfer

Transfer:
"First of all, let me vent about some (potentially) irrelevant issues with my hard drive switch out - you can make your own decision as to whether they are related to this hard drive or other issues, including ID-10-T errors by myself...- Reinstalling Vista was a nightmare, Vista would freeze at the end of the install unless you switched out the Vista Install disk with the Computer drivers disk multiple time during install - none of which are you prompted to do so (had to Google for issues...)- My file transfer was horrible, first it wouldn't transfer at all, then it transferred all the folders - ALL of them, but no files."
_
"Installed it myself and had a good friend help transfer the data, works great."
_
"I bought this drive to increase the internal storage capacity of my MacBook Pro from its original 500 GB to a higher capacity as well as to increase the speed of file transfers to from the stock hard drive."

"it will ask you if you want to transfer data from another computer or disk (I picked disk and it took about 1 hour)8. it will transfer your docs, applications, settings and other files (great!"

"This drive was for a friend's HP G62-144DX laptop where the existing drive would not boot to Windows and failed the drive manufacturer's test routine."
_
"This was fixed with service pack 1, but because one cannot install service pack one if Windows is not installed properly, it creates a very annoying catch 22.The best workaround I found was to make sure that I had a clean system image (created in Windows) and that I reformatted to computer with those files."
