Purchased from ebuyer for £82.49, looking for £75 inc delivery. I will also mention (just in case anyone makes the same mistake I did) - that this model includes the free-fall sensor, so if you're looking to upgrade a macbook pro it might not be suitable due to a conflict with the macbook's own free fall sensor. But otherwise, I have got the WD3200BEKT model (exactly same but w/o freefall sensor), and the performance of these drives is amazing!

I will post pics tomorrow, also my ebay user id is gillms1 - so please check out my feedback.

I would prefer payment via BT or cheque and would send via 1st class recorded (or special delivery for an extra £5). Or if you live near the Reading area, welcome to collect.

Can also do paypal, but due to fees would prefer not to.

As suggested by bjmcghee, I'll send this special delivery only as a high value/delicate item. So I will include this in the price I'm looking for £77 inc delivery.

A spin speed of 7,200 is pretty fast for a laptop hard drive.

Many laptop hard drives only spin at 4,200 or 5,400.

Do all laptops support a spin speed of 7,200 or might there be problems with heat or noise?
I've had no problems in my Macbook Pro - in fact, if anything it's running a lot cooler than my old 5,400 drive.

I would say it depends on your laptop, but I wouldn't think, unless it's an very old laptop, it would be any problem.
Just a quick tip, mate, if you're posting this out you would have to send it by Special Delivery because if it got lost or was damaged in the post then Recorded Delivery will only cover up to £36 insurance. Good luck with the sale! :thumbsup:
fyi i put a 7200rpm drive in my macbook and the temps only went up 2degrees during extreme situations. however, the speedgains were dramatic. osx boots a good 10-15 seconds quicker
if i didn't already have a 500gb one in my macbook, i'd snap this up too.
gl on the same
Thank you for the tip - I'll edit the main post accordingly.

Also added a picture as promised - I didn't want to remove from the packaging, but if someone is genuinely interested and wants me to take pics with packaging removed I will.
http://www.lambda-tek.com/componentshop/index.pl?prodID=B128092 I bought it here new on monday - cheaper, maybe why the fish arent biting at your price.

I bought it for my macbook and seems great so far
I'll offer £60 paypal gift (no fees to you)

Wait just read the bit about not working with your macbook, no use to me sorry.
Ok no worries - let me know if you change your mind. However, note I'm not sure if there is a problem with macbooks and similar HD's - I only read about the Pro's (and this seemed to be a rare case).

Demoki mentions in his post above he has installed this HD in his macbook with no problems.
