It works well.

Mark Lockard, Amazon
13 April 2015
  • Summary: As a novice, I just don't like all the stuff that goes with replacing a hard drive. It works, and I got a friend of my daughter to install it and prep it, for me. I am pleased with it.

My customer isn't happy he's lost the last two weeks of business data

JOHNNY AUMAN, Amazon
31 December 2014
  • Summary: I bought this hard-drive in August of 2013 and it's dead as of December 31st of 2014. My customer isn't happy he's lost the last two weeks of business data. It isn't my fault at least because for a business computer I would recommend backing up business stuff daily.

Saving legacy desktops

Dr. Cool "Dr. Cool", Amazon
21 December 2014
  • Summary: This drive works just like the original, which it is (just 10 years later). I have saved several legacy computers by doing a bit-copy of the entire original hard drive onto these. New, the speed enhancement is startling and they will last another 10 years I suspect.

Running Five Years -No Problems!

Thomas S., Amazon
6 August 2014
  • Summary: I bought this drive about five years ago and forgot to review it! Well, it's still running great -no issues. I do test and scan drives every three months or so, and I backup monthly to a portable drive. So this drive has done very well for five years now.

Good product for the price

Stephen Johnston, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: A good hard drive for the cost. As I have experienced with Western Digital Hard Drives, they install easily and are ready to go right out of the box. Has really good access time, and I have yet to have had a "bad" hard drive.
