Summary: I love my hard drive. I got this one because I wanted a more energy efficient drive. I got this one 3 years ago and still kicking. I have a Samsung SSD too so this drive turns on only when I use it, otherwise it will be sleeping (all the OS and apps are in the SSD ). 3 years with no problems, so I would recommend this drive to anyone.
Slowest Drive I have seen lately, and lasted less than 2 years.

Summary: This is the Slowest Drive I have seen lately, and lasted less than 2 years. Even as a second drive it will slow your system down because it constantly wants to hibernate, and then when you access it, there will be a pause. Also it lasted less than 2 years and the Western Digital warranty page said it was out of warranty. I did not purchase the 2 year warranty from Amazon so it is just a dead drive.
Summary: these days a lot of folks might prefer a Solid-State-Drive, but there are two reasons for a good mechanical hard drive: 1. long reliable life 2. price i am extremely happy with this hard drive, which i use in an external USB enclosure for Mac backups.
Summary: It works and I am still using it. Can't even remember when I bought it. I just know it was a two years or more ago. (Just checked it was really close to two years ago.) I am only using 1/2 of its capacity. I have been using it in a computer built out of inexpensive parts to play inexpensive games. Works great for that.
Summary: the drive did not work...took it to a local PC shop that did testing and it failed all the tests...contacted both the supplier and Amazon - excellent response from both...returned item and money was refunded...no fuss - no muss...when i do expand my system i will return to this supplier and Amazon for my hardware needs.
