Replacement hard drive for Compaq CQ-609/11/2012
Although it's hard to rate a hard drive until you've had it over 3 years, the initial specs seem good. I had to replace a laptop hard drive. Selected this one due to Western Digital's warranty, other reviews and the higher rpm - seemed to be the most bang for the buck.
A must buy6/18/2012
5 STAR Drive... A great buy and quick shipment. I used to have a 5400rpm, 80 GB hard drive in my Vista laptop. After a year and a half of new software, and gunking up the hard drive, I had only 10 GB of space left, which made my laptop pretty slow. I popped this 7200rpm, 320 GB hard drive in, and reinstalled from the factory image. WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE! No problems at all swapping it out. It boots up in half the time it did when new with the smaller hard drive. Now I have 4x as much space, which is room enough for two partitions (one for programs/OS, and one for data only). Also, I have noticed about 50% longer battery life, and noticeably cooler operation when sitting on my lap. Operates noticeably quieter.
Fast, quiet, and Western Digital is my brand of choice.
Love this drive!!! 5 STARS!!!!!!! Awesome hardrive for any computer users needs. It is sleek and slim and takes up no space. Hooks right up to computer and starts working right away. Couldn't have been any easier. Includes all the software right on the hard drive. Just plug and play.

Desktop performance in a laptop form factor10/5/2011
Amazing 2.5" HDD. This drive is the secondary in my HTPC. The OS drive is an OCZ Onyx 32GB SSD, and the third 'storage' drive is a Samsung Spinpoint F4 2TB. I used the Scorpio for all the applications that shouldn't be installed on an SSD or the applications that wouldn't fit on the SSD. HDTune benchmarks show that it performs about as well as my old Western Digital Caviar Black 750GB, with the exception of slightly slower access times. This is amazing engineering from Western Digital. I'm getting desktop speeds from a laptop drive. This drive is quieter, cooler, and smaller than the desktop drive, but with practically all the performance. Online benchmarks even show this 7200RPM drive uses less electricity than some of the slower, competing, 5400RPM drives. The only drawback is the price premium, and the limited size. If WD can make a 1TB or higher drive this size (without making it thicker), I'd buy it in a heartbeat. For now, this older 320GB model will have to do.
Replaced the slower 5400 in Acer Aspire One12/28/2010
The smaller and slower 160 in my Acer was getting full and was kinda noisy. I saw this at the higher speed and larger capacity and replaced my OEM. I did an image of the old HD and popped this in and put the image back on and it was seamless. This drive is quieter and faster. I used the old drive to put in an external case to carry with me for extra storage or to transfer data.
Great upgrade for my HP Pavilion DV60001/25/2010
I love it! Rather than wipe my little 170GB drive to do a clean install of Windows 7 (I don't like Vista!), I chose to upgrade. I'm very happy with this drive. I can't compare the speed because I didn't do any tests with my original drive which had Vista on it, but it does seem quicker in AutoCAD. It dropped right in, formatted, and installed with no problems so far. And it is very quiet!
This drive is smoking fast and ultra quiet!11/8/2009
Great HDD for laptop or as external. I bought it together with an enclosure and is is one of the fastest drives I've ever used in and out of the laptop. Also ultra compact and ultra light as you would expect - pocket sized. I plan on buying the 500gb next ... I wish the price was lower - it's still much more expensive than a similar drive in a full 3.5 size but otherwise a phenomenal piece of technology. Highly Recommended!!!
Great HD value!10/3/2009
filled my old 120 GB drive and needed a new one. This drive I popped in my laptop right out of the box inserted the factory disc image restore disc(vital part of success) and back in business!!!!
INSTALLED EASY, RUNS QUIETLY AND FAST, VERY HAPPY. BUT FOUND IT CHEAPER ELSEWHERE ($15)BUY.COM WOULD NOT MATCH PRICE???STILL IT IS O.K., CAN'T HAVE EVERYTHING!!!
Scropio HD 320G4/25/2009
Bought this drive to replace the failed 100gb in my Mac mini. It has a faster spindle speed then the OEM and works very well.
Nice drive, nice price4/14/2009
Used this as a replacement for a 100gig that died in my HP laptop. Works flawlessly,, actually quieter than the original drive and the computer seems to run faster, ( could be all the empty space IDK) Overall great price, free shipping (was fast anyway 2 days from order until receipt) nice quiet drive
Good drive a good price.3/27/2009
I upgraded the stock 80GB hard drive in the Asus EEE Box PC. It seems to like it just fine. The computer seems to run slightly faster since this is 7200RPM and the stock is 5400RPM and it has a larger cache. It doesn't seem to put out more heat than the stock even though I would think it should. I have not noticed it making a lot of noise either. It's very quiet even when seeking. I am running it with XP home as a storage, media, and web server.
Great Drive - Runs Cool & Quiet2/28/2009
When looking for a new drive, I figured I probably wouldn't need more than about 100GB. So I looked around to see what I could find. Most of the drives I looked at varied between $40 and $70 bucks. I came across this drive and was sold. For just a little more money, it offers a larger cache and double the drive space I was looking for. It is very quiet, seems to be built well and the warranty on this drive is outstanding. This was the first time I have purchased 2.5" replacement drive, but have bought my share of 3.5" drives and Western Digital has never let me down. I've only had one of their drives start go out on me and replacement was a breeze. At this price, I'm thinking about purchasing another to put in my PS3.
Swapped out my 120gb 5400rpm from my laptop for this. Seems to run faster and cooler.
Great Fast Hard Drive1/23/2009
Swapped out a 100gb 5400rpm Hitachi from a Lenovo 3000 N100. Easy set up with Acronis Imaging Software. Drive works fast and runs cool compared to old drive. Also bought Coolmax Sata enclosure for old drive. Works Great!
Item is good,Description is not very good12/31/2008
I shall say the shippment, and the item are both good enough. However, the discription for this item is not very close to its real condition. Buy.com shows me pictures of this item with origin retail box, never mentions it is actually in bulk condition untill I received this item. Buy.com likes Word Games very much, all things they tell you are over-optimistic.
Excellent and FAST12/28/2008

Great and cheap upgrade with my reburbished laptop. I partitioned the drive into three partitions: OS, Data, and Backup. I now can re-image the laptop in minutes whenever needed without having to worry about backing up my data because they're all on the Data partition.
Fast, and quiet11/3/2008
Ordered this for my new MacBook, installed it and worked great. Fast and quiet.
