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.

Great Value for replacement part

on 2/12/2010

I repair / rebuild computers for people as a side gig as an IT guy for a Church / School in VA. 3 people (including myself) have had the original WD Scorpio blue 120gig placed in the HP Pavilion Entertainment series laptop give the 'blue screen of death' in the last 6 months. I've used this as a replacement with no complaints so far. This seems to be the optimal replacement drive. Increased speed, quiet operation and the 'free fall' added feature sold me and have proven to be the right choice for breathing life into a 2 year old laptop that I can't justify scrapping yet.

Product Overview

Designed with top-of-the-line notebook computers in mind, this high performance drive delivers the capacity and speed needed to supercharge a notebook PC without compromising battery life or quiet acoustics. Features like these also make this drive an outstanding option for compact desktops, external hard drives, gaming systems, and blade servers.

Desktop-class performance for notebook computers - With 7200 RPM spin speed, 16 MB cache, and capacities up to 320 GB, these drives enable you to have the best of both worlds: the capacity and performance of a desktop PC with the convenience and portability of a notebook.

Massive capacity - WD's 320 GB 2.5-inch drives offer huge capacity for space-hungry operating systems like Windows Vista®, with plenty of room left over for photos, music, and video.

Low power consumption - With technologies like IntelliSeek™, which calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption [View demo] and SecurePark™, which reduces power by parking the heads during low power idle mode, this drive delivers 5400 RPM-equivalent power consumption in a 7200 RPM drive.

Quiet - In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD's exclusive WhisperDrive™ combines state-of-the-art seeking algorithms to yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market.

Free-fall sensor - As an added layer of protection, if the drive (or the system it's in) is dropped while in use, WD's free-fall sensor detects that the drive is falling and, in less than 200 milliseconds, parks the head to help prevent damage and data loss. Tested for compatibility - We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab™ and Mobile Compatibility Lab to give WD customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems.
