Summary: When I opened up this drive in the Disk Management Console in Windows 7 Pro, it showed two partitions 2.0TB something and a 700+GB partition. My formatting selection was limited to either formatting those partitions, or doing some GPT or something setup, which allowed me to go into the normal NTFS...
Summary: Worked flawlessly in a HTPC since 5/2012 working as strictly the DVR hard drive with a cable card. Failed with bad sectors in 12/2014. Ended up purchasing a red drive now. Not impressed with this product. I thought it would've lasted longer.
Summary: This drive did not mention that it was a green drive. I would not have purchased had I known it was a green drive. I am using this in a 16-channel DVR so reliability is worth the extra money. I don't have time to mess around with sending this back to get a non-green WD.
Good but nvidia chipset owners -it does not show 3tb unless you have this...

Summary: I am rewriting this review because I found a solution. So, if you are an owner of a slightly older PC (like me) from say 2006 or 7 and, you have a motherboard with the NVidia chipset you need at least version 15.58 of the driver - which as of this writing was not the one in the "latest drivers"...
Summary: As with many others i ordered this HDD and the one i received was DOA. i went through Amazons great exchange process, had a replacement unit within 2 days that has been working wonderfully for almost a month now. This is a great price for a huge drive.
Summary: Unfortunately I had to return the product after two days, which meant I just managed to format and move my files, when write problems start to occur and the Western Digital disk check flagged too many errors to finish.
Summary: Sicher eine gute und günstige Festplatte. Da ich sie erst ein paar Tage habe, will ich zur Leistungsfähigkeit nichts sagen. Das Formatieren gestaltet sich aber ziemlich mühsam. Mein Rechner mit I7 Prozessor und Sata II ist jetzt 1 1/2 Jahre alt.
