A Great Hard Drive Upgrade.
I purchased this drive just a few days ago, and as usual, Buy.com has not let me down. I received this drive very quickly even though I asked for the free shipping option and it was at the peak of the Christmas rush. I also could not find a cheaper price on this drive, even from Amazon. (Good job, Buy.com!) The drive itself came packaged very securely in two generic boxes and was covered in an anti-static bag. I wanted a higher performance drive for my older Toshiba notebook and did not need an outrageous amount of storage. This unit seemed to fit the bill nicely, and the price was right... The physical installation of this drive was very easy. Just screw on the two side rails of the hard drive carrier, and carefully plug it into the laptop. The drive is only low level formatted so you must have some way to initially partition & format it. (Not a big deal.) This is really a quiet drive and I have seen a substantial performance increase using it in my laptop. I also really liked the 5 year warranty that Western Digital offers on this drive, and the shock sensor contained within the electronics of this unit potentially could really be a life saver in the future.
