Summary: Hard drive arrived and installed in a few mins! does what it says on the tin would only purchase WD drives, as i have had seagate drives go down on me many times BUT never had 1 WD drive as yet... would also like to thank dabs for there excellent service.....
Summary: I chose Crucial because they were able to identify this HDD as an appropriate fit for my Dell and the price was close enough to the competition -- no need to bargain shop. The drive arrived in the time frame specified. Cloning software was downloaded from Western Digital. For installation, I had to snag the SATA connection from one of the DVD drives as this item is "drive only" -- no cable included. It all worked surprisingly well.
Excerpt: This Caviar Blue HDD was simple to install with the Aluratek External SATA Hard Drive Duplicator. The shift took under 15 minutes once the duplication was done. This really changed the performance of the Dell GX520 with an 80G HDD. Startup from "Off" is amazing.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
