Whether this drive is used in an all-in-one computer or a notebook users benefit from a SATA 6 Gb/s interface along with a 7200 rpm rotational speed for optimal performance.

Maximum Performance
Performance enhancing features deliver the speed you need for demanding applications such as photo and video editing and Internet gaming.
No Compromises
High performance, high capacity, and high reliability
Dual Processor and Rock-Solid Mechanical Architecture
Twice the processing power to maximize performance
Dynamic Cache
WD's dynamic caching algorithm improves performance in real time by optimizing cache allocation between reads and writes. For example, if there is an overwhelming percentage of read traffic as opposed to write traffic, the drive automatically allocates more cache for read data, which reduces congestion and improves overall drive performance.
Available SATA 6 Gb/s Interface
The SATA 6 Gb/s interface provides backwards compatibility to legacy systems with SATA 3 Gb/s requirements.
NoTouch Ramp Load Technology
The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
Tested for Compatibility
Tests are performed on hundreds of systems and platforms in the FIT Lab to check that this drive will work in any system.

    WD WD5000LPLX reviews

    500GB WD Black Mobile OEM Hard Drive (WD5000LPLX) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced a 5400rpm laptop drive for recording music. I have a dedicated music recording laptop and was due for a hard drive upgrade. The laptop originally came pre-installed with Win 7. Once I received notification for a free upgrade to Win 10, I decided that a faster and newer drive was the way to go. Installation was easy once I got the back cover off. I slid the drive into the slot, loaded the recovery disks and was up and running with a factory new laptop in about an hour. I did notice a substantial increase in boot time. About 17 seconds to desktop screen and 20 seconds to full use desktop. Could be a result of the freshly installed OS and programs, although I attribute much of it to the 7200 rpm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation, reliable, fast This is the third Westerm Digital 500GB black lable hard drive I've purchased. The other two are still in service without a hiccup. I bought this one to install of Windows 7 to replace my current Vista OS, which is on my current primary HDD. (I refuse to downgrade to Windows 10 due to Microsoft using it to gather and storeg vast amounts of data on our computing habits). Anyway, after doing substantial research plus personal experience with this product over the past two years, I easily concluded that this particular WD HDD is the highest performance-best buy on the market. B&H made the purchase quick and easy, and I actually received the parcel on the third day after completing the online purchase.
