LAPTOP INTERNAL HARD DRIVE

which brand is good out of HGST 500 GB Laptop Internal Hard Drive (Z5K500-500) – 3 years warranty or WD with 2 years warranty.

are flipkart sellers reliable for purchase of HDD.

and how long does a HDD survive. i am using a lappy since more than 3 years so thought of purchasing a spare HDD

Better get a hybrid drive, if you plan on keeping the lappy for a long time. In terms of reliability pretty much all drives are crappy these days, though HGST is till the best maker statistically, whilst SSHD have longer warranty & generally better reliability.

@desidude2013 Highlighted the important points. An SSHD or SSD (you can also buy a slightly used SSD from eBay if you have budget concerns) would also improve the overall speed of the laptop remarkably. See: http://www.desidime.com/forums/dost-and-dimes/t...

It was indeed bought by WD but they operate independently & yet HGST is superior in virtual all respects, like how Samsung went initially with Seagate.

I haven’t found any difference in quality per se. What I wanted to say was both operate under same umbrella so not to worry about the quality as OP initially had asked.

Can any one help me on this – i bought the hard drive and received it. on checking the warranty status it shows me a year less than the date of purchase. i wrote to the company but they said its valid from the date the drive left their warehouse.

then why does flipkart say 3 years warranty on the product… i have contacted flipkart and they have said to wait till the matter is solved

My internal HD failed 3 years back, I never bought a new internal HD. I removed the HD and since then I am using my laptop with the help of 8GB pendrive which is flashed with live LinuxMint https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif waiting for the day when HDs will be history and SSD will be available at cheap prices. Till then Linux rocks https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_lol.gif

Warranty is always valid from the date of sale by the vendor you can file a case if they don’t fulfill it.

Why the hell customer should bother for when the product left the warehouse. They are not buying vegetables.
