Looks and works as new!

Harold S., Amazon

  • Summary: Used? It looks and works as good as a new HD. I bought this HD to put it in a USB external enclosure, but I realized it would be less expensive to add it to my computer as a second drive. Works great! Easy upgrade! Very satisfied! Harold S.

Spares located

  • Summary: I have not put these drives in my raid yet because they are supplemental drives in case one goes bad. But if they are as good as the 4 WD 160 that are in it now it was a great find and buy.

Definitely a poor choice to save a few bucks

Jimmy D "Jimmy", Amazon
16 April 2015
  • Summary: Definitely a poor choice to save a few bucks, though I doubt anyone will try to pick this up today (2015). Get a 50 dollar SSD and save yourself the trouble. This thing does not write or read fast enough, and causes frequent lag on my computer.

I'm glad I did

quickster, Amazon

  • Summary: That bottom part has no guard so the disk is open for anything to get caught on it. I'm not sure if this is normal, but I'm not sweating it since the pc booted up, let me install ubuntu on it, and runs well so far. I also bought the warranty. I'm glad I did!

Nothing But Western Digital Drives For Me!!

l.cyr.galant, Amazon
16 February 2015
  • Summary: Had very good and numerous reviews. Have been a WD-Drive person for about 12 years. Arrived packaged adequately and fast via "Prime". upon installation for a Linux system, drive worked perfectly and continues to work for about 2 weeks now. Great price! Buy it, it's a good deal and a good drive!

Died after very little use

Letitia W., Newegg
15 February 2015
  • Summary: I really think it should have been more reliable.
  • Pros: Seemed to run smoothly, quietly, and fast while it worked.
  • Cons: It was several years old when it died, but I had used this computer very little over that time. It had few hours on it.

Excellent

Mary H., Newegg
14 February 2015
  • Summary: After many years of everyday, almost all day use, my old WD Blue 500 Gb. finally started to give up the ghost. I found I didn't really need 500 Gbs., but I did need to stick with WD, because they work and they last, even with heavy use. It is loaded with tons of music, videos, pics, docs, etc.
  • Pros: Highly recommend. Easy to install, recognized immediately. Linux Mint loaded flawlessly. Works great, quickly shipped.
  • Cons: None.

Good little hard drive for the money.

David Fletcher, Amazon
4 November 2014
  • Summary: Bought this to install linux on, ended up swapping the purpose and using it as a document and music storage with a small virtual machine of linux on it, but I did get linux on it and a successful dual boot working. I haven't noticed slow read or write speeds seems to work as a just fine hard drive.
