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.

2 DOA, 1 failure after 6 months

Joel W., Newegg
5 February 2013
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: I purchased 3 of these last year to upgrade some older Dells. 2 of them installed fine, although 1 of the computers runs slow with it installed. 3rd came DOA, WD sent a replacement but it too was DOA (both of them bad boot sectors). WD was too difficult to work with so so I just surrendered and p...

User Review

Andrew K., Newegg
26 January 2013
  • Summary: Somebody at WD messed up, because they sent me the 320GB version of this drive after the whole warranty debacle had cleared, I'm glad though, I didn't really want the original back, I would have settled for a smaller one honestly.
  • Pros: A learning experience I suppose, about being more thorough.
  • Cons: This HDD gave me more trouble than I can fit into 3,000 characters, but here's a summary. Was apparently bad from day one, but always managed to throw me off by taking a fresh OS install with no issues. I therefore, several times figured that it was other components (my suspicion was the GPU) cau...
