  • Summary: For the price, it's not bad. Although it's not the fastest, it's good for just storing data, photos... etc.
  • Pros: Affordable and reliable

It works, but I cannot use 0.5 TB

  • Summary: Installateon was easy, but my computer doesn't allowed to use all volume of the hard drive. It operates only 2 TB. May be there is a special software for this kind of HDD, but I don't bother to search. Otherwise it works perfectly.

  • 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
  • Pros: 3TB at a good price
  • Cons: none for my purposes

It works for now.

  • 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. Recover as much data as I can, because all of them listed as invalided when I pop them in external drives. WD drives from 2006(500gb),2007(640gb) and now 2008(750gb). I loved WD drives, so I had only WD drives in my PC.

  • Summary: It looks like all the other ones, packaging intact. The only other variable is how long it will last <sigh>

  • 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.
  • Pros: Lots of storage, Good Value
  • Cons: Slow

Nice Drive

Dittim, Amazon
10 March 2013
  • Summary: Purchased for my Windows Home Server. Be sure to put a jumper on pins 7-8 for WHS to recognize, I installed without the jumper and even though everything looked ok, windows did not see the entire drive and started giving me disk full warnings when copying files back to the drive. I had to remove the drive from WHS, add the jumper and then add the drive back. Now everything seems to be working as it should.
