Summary: I use two of these in RAID mirror. I have another 3 pairs also in RAID mirror in my mini server machine. I have had no problems with any of them. Then again i only turn on the box once a week or so, thus cannot comment on how these drives would be in a long term continuous use
Summary: I replaced my Seagate 2TB hard drive when the temperature began shooting up to 140 degree F. This new WD drive operates at a reliable 87 degrees F. I bought it as a kit expecting a disk, manual, and any needed parts.
Summary: Just the past month I had 3 WD hdd died on me, all while My computer was on. They just disappears, and when I restarts, my computer can't get past bios or can't start windows. Had to remove them.
Summary: I use one of these as a storage drive in my desktop. For my purposes this drive performs great, as it is used exclusively for storage and not for gaming. The drive represents great value but the trade-off: it's really slow. If you are not installing games off of this drive you will be okay.
