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 a cheaper sata drive from western digital...i've used HD from all the major brands and found them pretty much all reliable for the first few years-at least...some start getting a bit noisier...too early to rate this product in that sense...this has small capacity compared to the disks they fit now even in laptops..but if-like me-you only require office functions and don't store hundreds of gigabytes of music files and video..
Summary: If you are looking for the lowest price per Gigabyte, this is not the drive for you. On the other hand, if you want a relatively fast and reliable hard drive for a PC that spends its time doing emails and word processing, the Caviar Blue 160GB will do nicely. Prompt delivery and no problems with installation. Four stars because it could be a little cheaper, given its limited size.
