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.

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: 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.
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.
