Summary: This is a very nice Hard Drive. It was surprisingly easy to install so I am very happy with this purchase. The instructions on the package was easy to understand even for someone non technie like me. I will definately recomend to my family and friends if they need drives.
Summary: NOTE: I bought this model from Amazon Warehouse as a 'Factory Recon' OEM item (half-price from normal !!). Unlike other reviewers, was quite happy with the packaging. No SATA cable provided (but I had spares anyway, so no big deal for me). Drive worked fine once installed and initialised in my WIN 7 PRO machine. A couple of websites that may be of use to VISTA x-64 and WIN 7 x-64 (WIN 8 maybe too ??
Summary: Over the last 5 or so years I've went through 6 drives. 3 were replaced under warranty. WD sent out fast warranty replacments. In this respect they were excellent. However they send out "refurbed drives" under warranty claims. I have found some of these refurbed drives to have faults that obviously WD did not find themselves. Upon returning the refurbed drive i was sent a brand new warranty replacement.
