Experience: 5 Years

Pros

Cheap roomy and fast.
Cons
Not as fast as a ssd.
Summary
I bought this drive on sale for my Macbook. Went from 80gb to 320gb to this one. The drive is still working after 5 years.

Pros

- lots faster than your standard laptop hard drive
- excellent upgrade
Cons
- none found
Summary
I bought this drive to upgrade my 2 y+ macbook pro with a new hard drive (and new RAM), hoping to extend it's useful life. The upgrade process of a macbook's hd is a pain, but the result is very satisfying. More than quadrupled my available space and boot / load times have improved appreciably. I didn't own comparable items to compare with other drive, but I would recommend this one to anyone looking to upgrade a laptop.

None
Summary
Perfect for HTPC setups or to replace the one in your laptop (if not going SSD).

Pros

Very good hard drive for ps3
Cons
None
Summary
I have bought this when it was on sale. I replaced my old 40gb hard drive for ps3 and its working great. Highly recommended

Experience: 1 Months

Pros

Cost per GB, speed
Cons
Drive noise.
Summary
Very affordable 500gb drive. Drive noise seems high compared to the 5400 rpm drive it replaced. This may be just a trait of a 7200 rpm drive and may not be of concern but it is worth noting that drive life may be lower than expected.

Pros

Very Quite
Very Fast
Read/write Great
Cons
-None Yet-
Summary
Bought this nice upgrade drive to replace My PS3 Toshiba 80GB HDD.
I had this in my PS3 for 10 months now, and I use my PS3 gaming and blu-ray movie on a daily 30h-50h a week and my drive is about 50% full already from all the game installed I own.
Worth every penny!!!
-Gaming-Music-Video- *That what I'm all about*
I hope they have a Western Digital Scorpio Black 1TB SATA 7200RPM 16MB Cache 2.5 very soon so I can swap it in my PS3!!!

Also recently Bought one of this for a friend Laptop to replace a 1 year old 250GB 5400RPM 8MB Buffer Cache Mac Drive that was very slow.
Now my friend very happy with the performance of the new drive

Experience: 3 Weeks

Pros

Fast, good size
Cons
Noisy at times
Summary
No problems installing the hard drive. Everything is working to spec, it makes noise when at full rpm but overall fairly quiet. Its a good volume size for a laptop computer. Very good value for gb/price compared to a ssd option.

Purchased for the purpose of an external hard drive and has worked flawlessly. Plug and play for Unibody Macbook '08.

Experience: 50 Days

Pros

fast
5 year warranty
Cons
slightly louder than 5400 RPM models
Summary
Not much to say here, the drive is quite fast, has a great warranty, and is an awesome deal when on sale. Picked mine up for $53, will stick to these drives for 2.5" applications going forwards. If you're picky on noise, consider flooking for other options (SSD) if you're looking for a laptop drive, as this drive is louder than most.

    Comment: With a 7200 RPM drive speed, 16 MB cache, and 3 GB/s SATA interface, the Western Digital Scorpio Black 500GB hard drive looks impressive on paper and had solid performance numbers in the benchmarks.
