Customer Reviews of Western Digital Scorpio Blue Hard Drive 2.5", SATA, 320 GB, 3 Gb/s, 8 MB Cache, 5400 RPM Internal Hard Drive - OEM/Bare
Western Digital makes a fine product. Came just as described and have had no problems with it.
These drives are USED1/24/2012
These drives are not new but are "recertified". That means someone else has returned them to Western Digital and now they are being resold. They do not carry the full manufacturers warranty of 3-years, only a 90-day warranty
Perfect PS3 Hard Drive Replacement12/11/2010
I used this drive as a replacement for my original 40GB PS3 hard drive - works perfectly.
A real bargain. Very quiet. Good brand.9/19/2010
For less than $50 320GB is a lot space and made my purchase a real bargain. I considered a 5400 RPM HDD keeping in mind heat and consumption. So far so good. It's a very silent HDD and it seems pretty fast. Western Digital is a brand with reputation. Nonetheless, I couldn't find any information about product registration and warranty.
quiet, low cost, faster performance8/16/2010
bought this to upgrade the 80gb drive on my dell latitude d620. plugs right up. loaded windows7 on it (4gb ram on my 620) and immediately i saw drastic improvements. its not only less noiser but response time was greater. would recommend if you have an OEM 80-160gb drive for your dell latitude d620 for sure. no regrets.
Not so hot4/30/2010
It was defective on arrival. I tried several times to format it and it just wouldn't work. I had to send it back. I bought another one at a local dealer and it took the format on the first try. I think this one was just a bad apple. Better to find out its bad now than later when I have 320 GB of stuff on it.
Dead on Arrival4/24/2010
No dice. The bios sees the drive, but the OS can't format it. I tried several different machines and OS'es. It wouldn't work on anything. I'm having to send it back.
Great PS3 Upgrade9/29/2009
Works fine took longer to back up/ restore data than actually install the drive. Note to upgrade ps3 to keep data must have external HDD formated to FAT 32 use free program swissknife to format external HDD
Who cares about retail?6/2/2009
For the price, as long as it works I don't care. Some people want a steak for the price of a cheeseburger. I put this bad boy in my PS3 and it has been running perfectly for 4 months so far. Great deal and a great way to add a ton of space to your PS3 (I was running with 20 GB until this drive). Thanks buy.com for another excellent deal/product. You might want to consider selling boxes of tissues (retail, of course) for these OEM whiners.
Western Digital 2.5 320 gig4/30/2009
This is a good item but, Picture is a RETAIL box and the item that showed up was a foam packed box not a retail packaged product. why show one thing and ship another.. thats not cool. Product does work well and is a good value but still.. I thought I was getting a retail packaged product..
Looks like refurbished..4/12/2009
The image provided by Buy.com shows a clean original box. But delivered is in a plastic bag. No warranty information nor other product description. The HDD looks working normally, but really doubt if it is new or not.
Very good product, misleading description!4/12/2009
OK first of all, Buy.com I already reviewed this but you didn't like what I said. This is a very good product but the ONLY reason I bought it from buy.com it was because it shows as being a retail package. Well it's not!!! It's an OEM product! There is NO such thing in the description..If I would have known I would have purchased from amazon.com. This is the last time I review this.
I bought this drive to upgrade my 1st Gen 20 GB PS3. It's been in for about 2 weeks with no problems. Installation was super-easy. Now I have absolutely no problems with my fully backward compatible 1st Gen PS3. Sweet!
320 GB Western Digital Sata HD2/4/2009
Used this to upgrade my macbook original HD. Worked great super easy to exchange and have no problems yet, just a lot more space. Great Product and super fast shipping!!!
Solid drive for the money10/28/2008
Bought this 320gb to replace my 160gb HDD in my laptop. I have an XPS M1530 and this hard drive popped right in, no problems, in two minutes. I have noticed however, that there seems to be more of the operating noise than I remembered in the previous stock HDD. Increased capacity is nice though and it seems fast enough. Good deal too at $85.
Great for upgrading the PS310/26/2008
I bought this as a gift. My fiancé thought it was perfect. He wanted it so he could upgrade his PS3. He says he highly recommends this for a PS3 upgrade.
Perfect for my PS3!! Works great! Installs very easily.
Great SATA Hard Drive9/23/2008
Installed the drive in minutes to replace my existing Bad Hard Drive in my Notebook PC. Works smoothly without any problem, very fast access time.
makes my PS3 happy9/23/2008
I bought one of the earliest 60Gb PS3s and have already filled that puppy with demos and movies. I plan on using my playstation as the main storage space for my High Definition camcorder footage because of it's ease/quickness in playing the raw HD footage straight from the card. Ordered this guy, threw it in the PS3 (literally, it's stupid easy) and in about 3 minutes I was up and running with more than 5 times my previous capacity. Hopefully it lasts. So far so good!
I have purchased two of these. I put one in a macbook and one in a Lenovo X61s. These are very quiet drives. I've had no issues with them.
this is a great hdd i got it for my ps3 and cant beat it so if anyone looking for a new hdd for their ps3 this one is the one to get
Thousands of bad sectors4/26/2008
I've had a frustrating time with this HD replacement in my lappy. Everything went swimmingly until I had filled the disc with just over 100GB, then all of a sudden, bluescreen city until one of them wrecked my Windows installation. By using the Seagate diagnostic disc, I'm finding thousands of bad sectors. Back to WD it goes!
Great upgrade drive for Apple Intel-based laptops3/30/2008
Got this once my MacBook Pro went out of warranty and the original 100Gb drive became impossibly small. I found this to be the lowest recent price on a 300+ gig drive (I got it for $164, lower than the present price as of March 30 2008). Drive arrived quickly even on the free ground shipping and the replacement was quite simple for a MacBook Pro (the MacBooks are dirt easy, there's no reason not to put this drive in if you own a MB). It runs quieter, appears to spin up faster, performs faster, and generates less heat than the original Fujitsu 100Gb. Remember that this drive is SATA, so do not order it if your laptop uses a PATA (like Apple iBooks and PowerBooks). All i could ask for more would have been for this beast to be 7200rpm. Wait a year or two and it will be.
Excellent upgrade, lots of space3/28/2008
No problems installing. Huge gain in storage space for a notebook (I was upgrading from a 120gb disk). Very quiet. Does not get too hot (at least, I can't make out any difference from the former Momentus 5400.3 drive). I have not run any benchmark tests, but Vista seems to load a bit faster .. nothing remarkable though.
