Good Price for an older build, or bringing back an old PC.

Summary: Purchased 11 Jan 2014. Sold by Digital Components Ltd (dclstore) The HDD came in a anti-static sealed bag, and wrapped in bubble wrap, and placed in a bubble wrap envelope. I would have preferred some sort of cardboard box instead of the envelope to help protect item during shipping. The HDD itself looks new, but it does have a manufactured date of 2009. So its been sitting on the shelf for a long time.
Summary: This is not as big or fast as modern drives but now that external USB drives are so cheap size doesn't matter. I just needed a small capacity drive to host windows 7 plus a dozen applications so I found the price very appealling.
Summary: This one went into my self build quite some time ago and has had daily use for many many hours. Always stable, never any problems, just got me another WD Blue upgrade of 1TB and will use this as the back up one.
Summary: This product is a little old now, and many PCs have 1Tb or larger drives, but it can be helpful to build a PC with a system drive like this, relatively small, using a second or external drive for data storage. It simplifies system drive reinstall/cloning if anything goes wrong and it can also make recovery from a virus or hardware failure much easier. Many gamers do the same with a small solid state drives, but they cost much more than this spinning disk design.
