Good replacement

rrieck, Office Depot

  • Excerpt: Drives were bought to replace the stock Hitachi drives in a Mac Mini server, after the OS drive failed. I would have rather replaced them with 2 SSD or Hybrid drives. No problems with the drives to date, and my Mini Server is back up and running.

  • Summary: My husband dropped his notebook and the hard drive was toasted, so we bought one of these for replacement. A friend of ours put it in, so that part was easy, and it works great too ;) A word to those who might be new to this type of project..

  • Summary: இ Fuzzy Wuzzy's Summary: ѾѾѾѾѾ Highly recommended with warm fuzzies! I previously added two of these 5400-RPM Western Digital Scorpio Blue drives in the 1-TB size on a laptop that is often used for the editing of photos, images, and very large video files.

good but not quite new

April, Office Depot
4 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Everything seems fine except that the order was an open-box item (possibly someone had returned it). I didn't put it to use yet, and don't want to waste time with the exchange process. (trusting that it will work fine)

Fool me once, fool me twice .. fool me three times = Fai

Derek, Amazon
10 February 2013
  • Summary: Once again but, for the last time I fell into that vortex of a tech item that promises a lot but absent on delivery. Western Digital has for years been making products that have ( in my opinion.. ) been working in the subpar range of 20 / 80% of success next to an old Pinto.
