Rated 5 out of 5 by from a good replacement drive for my six year old Dell The 250 GB drive in my Dell laptop which I bought in 2010 was about to fail. Our technician replaced it with this WD drive. So far, working fine, very much faster than the old drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good solid drive. I have ordered over 100 of these and we use these as our standard drive for my companies laptops. All drives are not created equal and these perform faster than most we recieve from the computer vendors. Good solid drive for a good price. Also the Western Digital free diagnostics download is a great tool to have to make sure the drive is really doing its job. Good solid drive and software from Western Digital. CDW's price is hard to beat for this hard drive spec. I highly recommend.
