Summary: Great service! Great Communication.
Pros: This product is priced very fair. NewEggs communication regarding questions and answers was beyond excellent! Western Digital is a trusted company and makes reliable quality products.
Cons: Although occasional products ordered may be DOA or defective, NewEgg again comes to the rescue with the quickest resolve. I understand things can be out of ones control when a product is DOA, but NewEgg reconciled these issues with the fairest and quickest of resolutions. Great communication and recused the day! Thank you NewEgg!!
Summary: I bought 2 of these and installed in my Dell XPS-400 Desktop. Installed without issue. Installed Windows 7 Home Premium without issue. Used Partition Wizard to make a few partitions without any problems. I like having 2 drives (one for backup).
Summary: What a great deal for a hard drive. Made the conversion to win7 easy as remove and replace. Fired right up and loaded 7.It meets all my needs and I always use WD drives after too many failures of other brands.
Summary: I'm trusting two of these (redundantly) in a mission-critical piece of lab hardware and they work fine so far. It's only been a month, but they haven't gone up in smoke yet, which is more than many products can claim. Excellently priced, that's for sure.
