new drive for older workstations

Paul Buckner, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: I'm using these to upgrade some workstations that had older slower drives. These fit the bill nicely. Not a huge amount of money, but large enough and fast enough for daily use.

Ide 160 GB HD too big for Dell 4100

Jer R., Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: Again this was for the Dell 4100. The 160 was too big for the system without downloading another program to accommodate the bigger drive.. Looks like I'll have a spare for other projects. I can use this for other projects later. One problem that I had was the message "Invalid Diskette- Insert floppy into drive A". Never could get past this message. I made sure the boot order was correct in the BIOS and HD setting was set to master, but that made no difference.

  • Summary: If you still have an older machine that uses the IDE interface then this is a great solution. It has the larger 8mb cache and 7200 rpm speed.

New but not Brand new

John Q. Public, Amazon
1 June 2013
  • Summary: The drive seems ok, I was able to transfer my system to it with no problems. This drive is "new old stock" and I think that info should have been included in the description. The manufacture date was 2008 therefore the drive is more than 4 years old and could have been exposed to possible damage due to storage temperature variations, shock from transportation etc. There is no physical damage of any kind noted at this time.

Excellent replacement drive but difficult setup

Willard B. Horton "geekforlife", Amazon
28 March 2010
  • Summary: Now that I have gotten through the setup process the drive is excellent and somewhat faster than the previous boot drive and does not change system noise level. The setup difficulties were because the usual standalone utilities would not recognize the drive. Both WD utilities and Windows 98 boot disk to run FDisk failed until the drive was formatted under W2K. I was then doing an image copy of the old C: drive (boot partition) to the drive.
