Didn't last long

Jared F., Newegg
11 November 2015
  • Summary: Shouldn't have gotten a refurb...
  • Pros: Seemed nice for a period, cheap-ish.
  • Cons: It lasted all of 7 months before crashing without warning. I only booted up to that drive 3 times (Triple booted OS's on separate drives)

Solid Hard Drive

Andrew W., Newegg
6 November 2014
  • Summary: No cables or screws come with the hard drive, not a con to me I have plenty kicking around, just something to consider.
  • Pros: I bought this hard drive when it was on sale and it was definitely worth the price. Installed windows 7 on it on the first try which is a miracle in itself. After install comes out to be 498 GB which is what I expected. So far the drive is pretty quick and it fit into the 3.5" bay with no issues.
  • Cons: None so far

Storage & Retrieval

Blake M., Newegg
14 October 2014
  • Summary: My Linux server also uses a WD HDD (60 GB) as its primary storage device, and given its long history of reliable performance, I was not the least bit reluctant in choosing a Western Digital product.
  • Pros: I selected this refurbished unit as a primary HDD for my first DIY computer assembly project. Removing it from the bubble wrapped anti-static sleeve it arrived in was much simpler than I anticipated - no tools required! In all seriousness though, the case appeared to be immaculate, and the specs ...
  • Cons: I should have ordered a second one!

I Do Like It!

Anthony J., Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: 4 stars = I like it, so I'll tell you why. You need to know that I installed this in a computer I built to be fast and silent. It's a backup drive for a 240GB SSD and it gets backed up to a large external so 500GB is really enough in this situation.

Quiet operation...

Long-Suffering Technology Consumer "8-tracks to 802.11", Amazon
15 December 2012
  • Summary: ..this is the hard drive installed as the OEM equipment in the Q-See QC448 security system (4-camera, 8-channel). This drive runs very quietly, which is good since it's in a fanless enclosure in the Q-See system.
