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: 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.
Summary: This is a hard drive that is highly rated. 2TB gives you loads of space for the storage. I have a SSD drive that I shall use for the operating system and will probably add another of these and set them up in a RAID 1 set up to provide me with an instant copy of all my work as security incase one disk fails.
Summary: I've tried numerous brands of hard drive over the years and WD are, in my experience, unbeatable. Various reviewers complained about inadequate packaging, but mine was brilliantly packaged and protected. I plugged it in and it worked perfectly – much faster than the drive it replaced. WD may not always be the cheapest, but they are the best.
