I'm in similar situation, but my only HDD (laptop) is failing.

Need a new one. Dont want Seagate.

Please suggest one 7200rpm drive. Size is not a concern 500GB is also ok, will buy at SP Road, Bangalore.

Current drive is 750GB WD 5400rpm (Asus laptop).

If you are looking for the high warranty and you don't have the budget problem, then the WD Black HDD is the best option. The WD Black drive is the use of high performance like gaming and video editing.
WD Black = Speed/high end use and extended warranty.

You did not mention if you have a laptop or desktop.
internal HDD's are cheaper than external
i have had bad experience with WD so I never bought WD.
All my HDD's are Seagate and SSD is sandisk.

Hi [MENTION=15026]topgear[/MENTION],

First of all, thanks for your interest in WD. For your information, the WD Velociraptor is coming with fixed heat sink. With that, the height of the drive is 15mm that prevents it fitting in most laptops. WD Velociraptor 2.5' inch HDD models are available from 250GB to 1TB.

The following link describes the specifications for the WD Velociraptor HDD:

The upgrading of storage part, it's all depend on the HDD thickness and compatibility with the laptop. Mostly, all mobile 2.5 inch HDD models come with 7mm to 15mm thickness depend on the model, Larger capacity would be more thicker, as with most other manufacturers.

hi [MENTION=293224]DK_WD[/MENTION] , i'm going to place order for WD Laptop Hard Disk Black 500GB WD5000LPLX, just wanted to know whether it has Warranty.

I read some reviews where HDD's were sold as OEM & WD rejected warranty.

product link from local store - WD WD5000LPLX Hard Drive - Black 5000LPLX 500 GB - Golchha Computers

Main usage of hdd for me is gaming & 3D designs.

My ASUS OEM WD is 750GB 5400rpm, showing error - Reallocated Sectors Count 230, so thats why upgrading to 7200rpm.

So first thing's first, please backup your existing data in other storage space. After backup the drive, try to run the manufacturer utility in the system to test the HDD condition regularly.

To check the possibility, you have to check the warranty of the product. For warranty check, you have to enter the product serial number In the WD portal.

Please refer to the link below for Warranty check:-

Support Answers

Based on my Knowledge, the Original Equipment Manufacturer hard drives are sold to OEM Computer manufacturers or Distributors in bulk packaging.

It may not contain a warranty from Western Digital. When Western Digital sells hard drives to OEM computer manufacturers such as HP, Compaq,acer, etc., we sell these drives without warranty. The OEM computer manufacturer would include the hard drive under the warranty of the computer system that the hard drive was installed into. For more information about hard drive warranties, please see our Warranty Policy.

Hi [MENTION=11737]s18000rpm[/MENTION],

That's good news, glad to hear it! :)

For Acronis True Image WD Edition Software, I tried to install on my system and its working properly. I'd suggest you to try to download and extract the in the different system and then try to install in your system.

If the problem still persists, then it may be an OS issue.
