Very reliable Drive
19 February 2013
Summary: bought this to use as my storage drive, since my boot drive is and intel 120gb ssd. and this combination works very well. All my downloads go to this drive and its rock solid, very reliable and quiet too!
Summary: Although I imagine not many are purchasing what may now called "small" (1.5TB) hard drives, I will say that I do like the reliability of this drive. I've had no problems with it and it does have great read/write speeds.
Summary: I have been buying hard drives for over 25 years. Through the years I have owned every brand. I can't say for certain that Western Digital is the BEST drive out there, but I can say that the fail rate for me has been much much lower than the other brands I have tried. Also with that said I would like you to know that the Western Digital company has a great warranty and web site that makes returns easy incase a product were to ever fail.
Summary: I got 4 of these to work with my Synlogy 4 Bay NAS and could not be happier (ok ok I could be if I got a 3 TB and 7200 RPM Drive but the Price was right for this one) Been working for 6 months now and Zero Problems
Summary: I have used this 2TB HDD for over a year without complains. It is fast enough to play HD movies and I recommend to use it for storage. It barely gets hot, so I hope that it could live many years. However, try to leave at least 10% of free space or it will be slower than a turtle. Great brand, now I'm buying a WD 3TB SATA III HDD to expand my colllection.
Summary: i have had 9 or 10 western digital hard driver in last 10 plus years and never had any problems with any of them installed hard drive in 5 min. and never looked back good hard drive for price and works well in win 7 who could complain about 2 tb hard drive that works great no contact needed with seller.
Summary: Average user about 4-6 hours a day. I bought this for my HP desktop to replace a dead hitachi drive which came withe the computer. Its a 2009 computer and detected this right away and allow me to install windows 7 on it with our issues. So far no issue, I hope it last a long time.
