The longest-lasting hard drive I've ever seen

Jay, Amazon
28 August 2014
  • Summary: I have one of these hard drives still, this day, as I write this review, eleven years after they started production. It's had Windows 2000, XP, XP SP2, XP SP3, and Windows 7 installed on it, and been a part of four different computer builds. I mean, you'd be silly to buy one today, but I sure did get a good one.

A Very Good Deal

November, Amazon
27 October 2013
  • Summary: This was a very good product. If I need another I will for sure buy here. Everyone should at least try here, if a hard drive is needed. Price was right, shipping fast, and product works. Thanks again.

Didn't work, sounds like a lawn-mower\vacuum cleaner.

Joshua Coleman, Amazon
21 October 2013
  • Summary: Just like the description, all I can say is this is officially the first Amazon order I'm disappointed with. Not only does it make an awful sound, it doesn't even come up on my BIOS screen! There's just one thing to say... Take this hard drive and... well... you know the rest.

A really great choice!

Dagon, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: Buy it without question, provided your computer is old enough to have IDE slots. I had one of those for 9 straight years and it never broke, until I accidentally reversed the polarity.

Happy with new HD

David J. Stiles, Amazon
13 May 2007
  • Summary: I replaced my original 30G HD in a Dell Dimension 4100 without any trouble. The WD HD is working fine and the computer is slightly faster and more stable. By staying under 135G I did not have to upgrade the BIOS. My only disappointment is the HD did not come with any mounting hardware, software or instructions. Turns out I did not need the hardware and was able to get the software and instructions from WD's website.

Western Digital 120 GB Drive

N. J. La Vita "computer kid", Amazon
13 May 2007
  • Summary: Even though I did not request an expedited shipment I received the Drive in four days. It has been a terrific deal. My old drive was only 9.8 GB and was very slow. This drive has altered my computer usage. I no longer have to open a program and leave it for about 10 minutes so that it could open.

Western Dig 120GB IDE Hard Drive

Robert C. Lappo, Amazon
19 March 2007
  • Summary: So far no problems. Western Digital has always been one of the best of Hard Disc Manufacturers and continues to be so. It's working the way it's supposed to. The only reason I rate it a 4 instead of a 5 is that an ATA drive is always going to be better. Otherwise, no complaints.

Died under 2 years...two of them!

S. Smith "metal forever", Amazon
23 July 2006
  • Summary: OK, so when I built my machine in Oct, 2004 I bought 2 of these drives and never needed the 2nd one...never even formatted it. So a couple weeks ago my primary just dies with no warning...even Spinrite couldn't do anything with it after 2 weeks of running. So, at least I have the 2nd drive to use right? Wrong, the 2nd drive that was never used died too!!!
