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!
Summary: I got this in the mail brand new and put it in my dell desktop and the thing doesn't even work. I tried switching all the cables and still nothing. I definitely won't be buying western digital anymore.
Summary: I installed it with ease. No problems at all it worked well no bad sectors on the hard drive I used the speed fan monitoring tool and used the smart analyzer and found nothing wrong with the hard drive
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!!.
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.
Summary: Well - I also was pessimistic when ordered 4 of those to setup local backup on 4 SATA drives on a 30$ SATA controller using software RAID under linux... but now, when around 2 years left, none of the drives has failed, SMART diagnostics never produced any warning on the self-tests...
