Not All Drives Are The Same!!!!

Goyahkla, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: I just thought I would add this!!! I have been trying to figure out how long I have had my oldest drive, and looking this drive up and zooming in on view (it says 2005) I realize I have had this drive for roughly 9 years!!. It could be longer it could be shorter, but if you ask me it's pretty damn good. So buying a drive and it failing does not mean it is a crap drive, it means " that one was " so... not all drives are the same!!

  • Summary: This is exactly what I needed! Unfortunately once I got it installed I found that the power supply for the computer was blown. They were courteous and even though I ordered days before Christmas I received this sooner than I thought. Perfect!

Unreliable

Thomas C. Garrison "Book reader", Amazon
21 October 2009
  • Summary: This drive came in my iMac and after less than 3 years it died. It was working fine one day, the next day it made a clicking sound and my computer would not boot-up. Less than 3 years of home use is a waist of money. So if you use western digital back up often, so you won't loose all your data like I did. 22,000 hours till failure inexcusable! Well it cost me over $500 to replace the drive, so save your money don't buy this drive.

Western Digital Caviar WD2500JD

  • Summary: Its a really quiet drive but its seek time isn't the best. I got it in my Dell though. You can improve the seek time by using Hitachi's Disk Took and adjusting the AAM on the drive.

An excellent choice

  • Excerpt: "I bought this drive because of the brand name, and I have not been disappointed with it. The data transfer rates are great, definitely faster than my other WD800JB drives. The temperature never goes above 35C. It is easy to install, and unlike other drives over 137Gb, Windows XP did recognise and format it all properly. It took 3 hrs to format, and its working fine. The price is very reasonable too, overall it is a good bargain! Note that ...
  • Pros: Huge capacity, SATA, easy to install, reliable brand name, generally fast all round
  • Cons: None !

WD Caviar WD2500JD Sata

  • Summary: Dachte ich hätte eine gute HDD ersteigert. Im Nachhinein leider ein Fehlkauf, da die Platte beim Hochfahren des System´s (WIN 7) leider manchmal nicht erkannt wird. Unter WIN-XP wird sie überhaupt nicht erkannt und es ist auch kein Formatieren möglich. Aus dem Grunde gegen eine Seagate ausgetauscht. Diese läuft ohne Beanstandung.
