  • pros
  • + Good performance, at par with slower desktop drives
  • + Just two platters and runs cooler as a result
  • + Large storage capacity
  • + Current street prices indicate reasonably good value
  • cons
  • - Performance still not at par with 7,200 rpm drives
  • - WD provides a 3 year warranty for this drive, unlike 5 years for the Black Edition drives

Verdict

By
750 GB is a lot of storage space. And the WD7500BVPT is a good performer. If you ignore the high MSRP (Rs. 8,215) and look to the street, you can find this drive for as little as Rs. 6,400 - a price point at which we cannot complain. 500 GB is at the sweet spot for capacity versus price however, and these drives are disproportionately cheaper. It will take a while for 750 GB to become the norm. If you can wait, prices might fall further within six months. However, if you need the space, and can afford to shell out, you'll definitely not be disappointed.
