Summary: I bought this item and I never got to use it but the company refunded me my money and before the refund they worked along with me to help solve the problem. The shipment was fast and packaging was okay. Never mind I didn't get to use this product these thing happen there is always one faulty item in your basket. So don't be afraid to support this product, it just might serve you well.
Summary: Vendor honored return agreement. The hard drive was defective out of the box..evidently a new factory return that should have been discarded and not resold . This is the first WD drive I have had a problem with in 15 years...Western Digital (WD )makes great hardrives. This drive told me via internal diagnostics it had an immediate failure pending and it should be replaced ..Thanks WD ! you let me know ahead of time to protect my data ! Vendor returned funds quickly .
Summary: I recommend this product unless you download games and such, as it will run out of space in no time!
Pros: I've owned this hard drive for around 5 years and it is still running fine!
Cons: The only con I have is that is only has 127 GB not 160. I will be buying a new hard drive soon because of this small size. I'd but it again, if it were 500gb! :D The only reason I have this is because my brother built me a pc and I had a small budget, so he got a 160gb hdd without acknowledgement. so it went from 160 gb, to only 127gb, plus the 20-30gb OS and restore points, I was only left with 80 gb of free space. I have over 40gb of games on my computer, and now I ...
Summary: Great drive, I always use WD drives but this came without warranty! I find the WD drives great, but the best part is the return service when things go wrong (and they all do). Luckily the WD drive replacement service is A1.
Summary: brought it as new but the drive is either recon or used. still had previous system information on it. but works and its cheap for a small spare drive just be warned.it should have said something about not being new drives in the ad
Excerpt: Проработал на ПК ИМАНГО 7лет. ПК был куплен в марте 2007г. Жесткий диск регулярно ослуживался-проверялся на ошибки и дефрагментировался. На пк стояла лецинзионная ОС. Эксплуатировался нещадно, игры, видео, день и ночь -в условиях повышенной запыленности. Но и регулярно чистился от пыли, продувался воздухом, менялась термопаста. 1 раз на жестком диске чистились дорожки контактов. В июле 2014 начал сильно греться ( 50 градусов набирал за 4 минуты работы).
Pros: Работал без нареканий 7 лет.
Cons: Бывало система медленно загружалась и выключалась.
