    This 250Gb drive replaced the original 80Gb drive in my G4 PB. The drive affords plenty of extra storage space and by thus adds some extra life to the machine. The reviewer who mentioned that the drive is noisy must have gotten a defective unit: my drive is as quiet as it could be – I can barely hear it in a quiet room and absolutely can not hear it if there is any background noise such as office or lab chatter. The old drive was much smaller and noisier. Very worthwhile upgrade!

    Great drive. Simple installation. Note that this is a PATA drive (wide hard-drive connector cables).

    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)

    When I bought this item it was listed as “Western Digital 250GB 2.5″ PATA Bulk/OEM Hard Drive WD2500BEVE” on Amazon. That link now takes me to “Western Digital Scorpio Blue 250GB 2.5″ PATA 5400RPM 8MB Bulk/OEM Hard Drive WD2500BEVE”. I am not sure if these are the same. I also bought “Apricorn EZ-UP-UNIVERSAL EZ Upgrade Universal Hard Drive Upgrade Kit” to clone the hard drive of my Toshiba 1115-S1554 that began complaining weeks ago of an imminent hard drive failure. I made an clone of the old drive and exchanged the drives. New image did not boot. I partitioned the hard drive in to two 125BG blocks and cloned – that did not work. I imaged using XXClone, that also did not boot. Then I partitioned so that the boot partition had same size as the old one (partitioned to 40GB, 90GB and 120GB blocks) and tried separately Apricorn cloning software and XXClone imaging unsuccessfully again and again. Eventually I ended up installing OS from fresh using Toshiba recovery package that came with the laptop years ago. It worked. In the process I must have mechanically installed and uninstalled this 250GB hard drive more than a dozen time each in the laptop and Apricorn enclosure and partitioned and formatted several times. Even after all this, the WD 250GB hard drive is working like a champ. I am glad that that the clucking noise I was used to hear from my old drive is gone. I have a quiet working laptop at the end with plenty of storage space. I have several other WD drives that work reliably. I would recommend this product.
