    Fast enough but nothing like an SSD, fairly reliable but a few bad sectors

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    I won this hard drive in a forum contest about 2.5 years ago and I immediately put it in my G50VT laptop. It has been running nearly 24/7 for that period of time (1.8 years of PowerOn Hours Count in S.M.A.R.T.) for storage and file hosting uses.
    In that period is has been 100% reliable. It does put out a bit more heat than a low powered 5400RPM drive but not a concern at all. My friend has it in her netbook and is doesn't run very hot in it so it might just be my laptop.

    It is decently fast. The STR is pretty good, and the random access speed and data rate therein is decent too. But, it's no speed demon. No mobile mechanical drive is. If you want good performance so that the drive isn't a bottleneck in a modern super computer laptop, get a hybrid drive or better yet an SSD. There are no other choices.

    Now to the downsides;
    The number of "load/unload Cycle Count" in the S.M.A.R.T., which is the number of times the read/write heads have unramped away from the platters to reduce drag so the platter motor doesn't have to work as hard to save power, is 170,983 times! If you look at the specs for the drive, it is rated for 600,000 cycles. That doesn't mean that at 600K it'll stop working or have any problems, it's just something to note.
    The main issue is that every time the heads park, it makes a rather loud clicking noise. Slightly annoying but totally ignorable.
    You can shut off head parking by shutting off APM power management via software utilities, but it is reset on every restart.

    The second issue, and far more important; Just a few days ago I took a look at the S.M.A.R.T. report and I saw 1 Reallocation Sector Count and 1 "Current Pending Sector Count".
    I ran a full read surface test with chkdsk and then the pending number rose to "2".

    So far it is working fine. But the reason for the 2 bad sectors is unknown. The laptop hasn't been subject to big shocks and the drive is rated for a huge 350g shock. So, it's either contaminants in the drive or platter material degradation I think.

    I will continue using it. It may continue to function fine for years to come.


    Overall it's a nice fast drive and at least fairly if not very reliable and it is fairly quiet (spindle speed is loudest, seeking is quiet) except for the head parking sound that occur every few minutes when idle.

    Now, 3 stars is "average". There is nothing that stands out with this drive versus the competition. It isn't that much faster or faster at all than other companies 750GB 7200RPM laptop drives, and I guess reliability isn't either. But it's a nice drive that I trust. But I'm keeping a data backup just in case.

    Best high speed/high capacity notebook drive out there!

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    This is truly a fantastic drive! It transforms a SATA 2 equipped Lenovo X61 into a compact powerhouse. Finally we can get excellent read/write speeds and high capacity in a notebook drive without going broke on an SSD. The only reason for the 4/5 and not 5/5 is because this drive is noticeably noisier that the stock drive. This is only a minor inconvenience, and barely takes away from my overall satisfaction of the drive. Highly recommended, especially at this price!

    Great product! Worth spending the money for it.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    This hard drive, though a bit too expensive, it is the perfect companion for your notebook. Great performance and high data capacity. I'd recommend it to anyone. I first use it as a primary hdd and then swaped it to secondary drive along with an ssd. Both times it worked flawlessly. It totally worth the money.

    Great big drive capacity for a low price.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    The WD 750 Black is a top value, high capacity drive. This was an excellent storage option for the money that gives a long use life. I prefer Western Digital drives for their speed, quality construction, and value.
