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: 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.
