Good but noisy

  • Excerpt: Used for system image, video, music storage. Make sure you mount this drive with screws to the frame of your case to keep hum and vibration to tolerable levels. Not recommended for cases with plastic drive sleds/caddies.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Not Advanced Fomrat, Not Advanced Format, Spacious
  • Cons: Loud Hum, Vibration

Bought 2nd one to replace FAILED one

Laserbone, TigerDirect.com
19 January 2014
  • Summary: Ok-- bought one of these to build a PC for my kid last Xmas (2012)-- ended up failing right before Xmas (2013)-- was able to retrieve most useful data from it using a external USB adapter on another PC. The good news is that WD's warranty system works good and actually had the replacement for the failed drive to me only a couple days after new one arrived (so now I have a spare). Not the best experience, but WD service was great.

It is ok.

  • Summary: I used one of this to build a Windows 7 PC and it has been in constant use for almost 6 months now. I must say that it has been more durable than a Seagate hard drive which lasted about 1 month. However, one issue I have with these drives is the booth time varies a lot. My future plan for this drive is to copy my Operating System on a Samsung SSD and use this as a back up drive. Samsung SSDs are in a league of their own.
