Excerpt: Got this one as a direct replacement for a failed unit, so it fit perfect. I like the low sound level of the drive since it is in a soundstudio Installed quick, and system restore went quickly, not having to resize partitions. Only time will determine life expectancy here, but for now cool temperature and quiet meet the requirements plus you can not beat the B&H Prices and service
Excerpt: After fighting with extreme slowness for data write/transfers/interaction, swapping of 3 motherboards, and other components. I determined the WD green drive,(yuck)was the problem. I read the reviews on this drive first and then B&H beat the competition as usual when it comes to price. As a Sr. Network Administrator I, like most others in the same field tend to want a specific and precise answer for trouble shooting. So when I read the negative reviews of this hard drive.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible, Surprisingly Fast For 2tb
Summary: The drive arrived on schedule, well packaged and protected and installed easily in an external USB/eSata case where I was replacing a 1TB WD drive due to lack of space. I'm using it as a single partition VFAT drive for video on the TV. It partitioned cleanly under Gentoo Linux, mkfs had no problem and about 1TB of video has been copied without any problems in dmesg so I'm willing to give the drive an initial thumbs up for at least this sort of low-performance...
