Cheap, reliable, quiet storage to get your computer running

Jeremy Kruckeberg, Amazon

  • Summary: If you're looking for a hard drive to replace a failed drive, or use in a budget build (parents!), this is the right drive. 7200 RPM, SATA III, quiet, light, and the WD name. Look no further if SSD speeds mean nothing to you or you don't need to make the jump.

Failed after 3 months just like several other BLUE drives I had

WiseShopper, Amazon
16 June 2014
  • Summary: I fix computers and I buy a lot of hard drives every year. From my experience, the Western Digital Blue drives are the least reliable drives. I have come across 4 of these drives that failed in less than a year. This is the last one that I will purchase. I recommend getting the Green drive or spend a little more to get the BLACK drives. The Western Digital Black drives are the most reliable hard drive I have come across.

Hard Drive

Thom, Amazon
15 June 2014
  • Summary: This may sound funny but, I purchased this drive for my Dell 630i desk top. The hard drive that came with it was just too big. The drive is very quite and much faster than the drive that was in the desktop.

Nice drive for the $$

John E. Wente "okiebikinguy", Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: I am an ardent fan of WD drives. I needed a small drive for a PC that doesn't get a lot of use and this one fit the bill perfectly (actually, it's way larger than what I needed, but these days 250 GB is considered small). It installed very easily. It's quiet and more than fast enough for the old PC in which I installed it.

  • Summary: My 250 GB drive died on me after 8 years. I bought this to replace it and reconfigure my system. the 7200 rpm and SATA III helps speed up the system. I am satisfied.

Still no problems with this nor previous WD drives

aBoppa@Verizon.net, TigerDirect.com
22 May 2014
  • Summary: Have had other WD drives in the past, going back to the days of drives in the MB capacity. Unfortunately, smaller drives are more scarce and more expensive in some cases. I have no idea what I am going to do with 250GB any more than the 320GB drive in my other system. I generally partition them into 40GB or so sizes. Still happy and crazy after all these years.

Great Drive, when not damaged in shipping

Brewski, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: I ordered two of these drives, and of the two, one failed. It seems the spindle became dislodged judging by the grinding sound when I turned it on. The shipping box was practically thrown to my front door. To be honest, I would purchase spinning drives at a brick-and-mortar store where you run one less risk of damage in transit (which is probably the biggest killer of drives).

Update:

David, Amazon

  • Summary: I have e-mail from ona_vince and he said, he didn't realize he gave me one with that many hours. The drive he sent me must have got mixed up with a used one on his workbench. He wanted to make this right if he can, just keep the drive and send me another drive on him, so I'm just waiting for the drive. I just received the new drive from ona_vince like he said he would. That is pretty cool when someone makes an honest mistake and takes care of you to make it right.
