Summary: Had to Format the drive to actually get it to accept anything. Also, this product came with zero cables. I was lucky to salvage enough from older computers but you are basically only getting a hard drive and nothing else. That could have been communicated better. As far as performance it is quiet and has good speed. Overall the product is great especially with the price point. Buyer Beware you will have to buy cables and probably mounting equipment as well.
Summary: This came to me not as described. I bought this "New" from Price Slayer. This came to me wih a "certified by dell" dell sticker on the hdd. I called WD and they informed me that the unit was manufactured in 2009 and sold to dell. They are selling these refurbished units incorrectly as new units so be careful.
no fault of the seller it was amazing how well it worked

Summary: Once it finally arrived, no fault of the seller it was amazing how well it worked. I love it and I suggest everyone that is looking for an internal SATA 1T hard drive to look into this one. It has some great formatting software already on the drive in it's own partition as well as other very useful utility programs. You have about 982 GB left to format and use for installing your O/S and storage.
Summary: Not only did I receive a different drive than I was advertised (Dell branded), but it was DOA. Using different SATA ports didn't work. Using different power cables didn't work. Using the cables and ports that the optical drive (which DOES work) used didn't work. I will give them credit for allowing me to get a refund.
