Summary: This an older drive and I was worried about what I would get. I use a raid 5 network device to store backup copies of my important data.The 3rd drive in the RAID array failed, which was the same make and model of the drive I am reviewing, and I was running the RAID array in degraded mode which made...
Cheap, reliable, quiet storage to get your computer running

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

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.
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.
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.
Still no problems with this nor previous WD drives

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.
