amazing for the price,
This review is from: Western Digital 250 GB Scorpio Blue 100 Mb/s 5400 RPM 8 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Notebook Hard Drive - WD2500BEVE (Personal Computers)
This is the largest drive I can get for my powerbook g4 (15 inch) 1.5 ghz as it only accepts ATA drives. My original drive failed after 3.5 years of working (toshiba 80gb) and i had to replace it, so i got this one, which is also a 5400rpm drive but performs a lot better for some reason. It's 3 times larger, it's far quieter, and it's new so obviously doesn't have any bad clusters yet. A very reliable drive so far.
I have never had a problem with western digital drives. My three surviving drives that I still use are all WD: an external 500gb USB drive, another old 40gb drive I still use as a boot disk, and the current one I have in my laptop.
Also, Amazon's shipping of this drive was incredibly fast...
