Perfect replacement for what I needed and great price.
3 December 2014
Summary: I run a RAID system for redundancy on my home computer. Its a little slow but cheaper as a complete and instantly available backup. I wanted and exact duplicate model of HDD when a 4-year old HDD started dying. This was exact. The price was amazing (I'm old enough to remember HDD for hundreds of dollars!). Shipping was as promise and it works terrific for my needs. I will order again from this company when the other drive becomes geriatric.
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.
