Summary: These drives are shipped in the un-boxed condition. I have no issues to date, but only time will tell if they will meet their expected life. The price was good, so it is worthwhile to run these in a RAID config, just in case there is a problem.
Summary: Okay, received the drive but it wasn't set up to use even though the package had been opened and they didn't send a setup cd with it. Luckily I had a old wd setup cd that worked for it. It's up and running. Yes I know I could have went on line but look at it this way, What if my old hard drive had crashed and I couldn't get on line.
Summary: I bought two of these drives from Amtech. The add lists them as WD Blue drives. Thats not what showed up. I received 5 year old WD drives. Besides the Blue label not being there and the drives coming as an open box item, I have been satisfied with them. So I emailed Alex at Amtech and told him about this error. He was very nice about it and we worked out a satisfactory solution. These two drives are in two Dell Optiplex 745 PC's that are at my brothers bar.
Summary: Purchased this Hard Drive,but I can't get it to work in my computer. I believe I should have asked if it came preloaded with XP software,not upset with them will keep & see if some how I can get it to Reboot! Will order again from them.
