Summary: We had a hell of an ordeal sending back the seagate that we purchased which was dead on arrival, This drive has worked wonderfully from day one. I an really happy with this purchase, will definitely be buying another later on when we need it for our next budget build. thanx.
Summary: Used? It looks and works as good as a new HD. I bought this HD to put it in a USB external enclosure, but I realized it would be less expensive to add it to my computer as a second drive. Works great! Easy upgrade! Thanks Jesse. Tech Thrift Shop is first rate. Very satisfied! Harold S.
Summary: Had very good and numerous reviews. Have been a WD-Drive person for about 12 years. Arrived packaged adequately and fast via "Prime". upon installation for a Linux system, drive worked perfectly and continues to work for about 2 weeks now. Great price! Buy it, it's a good deal and a good drive!
Summary: After many years of everyday, almost all day use, my old WD Blue 500 Gb. finally started to give up the ghost. I found I didn't really need 500 Gbs., but I did need to stick with WD, because they work and they last, even with heavy use. It is loaded with tons of music, videos, pics, docs, etc.
Pros: Highly recommend. Easy to install, recognized immediately. Linux Mint loaded flawlessly. Works great, quickly shipped.
Summary: Bought this to install linux on, ended up swapping the purpose and using it as a document and music storage with a small virtual machine of linux on it, but I did get linux on it and a successful dual boot working. I haven't noticed slow read or write speeds seems to work as a just fine hard drive.
Summary: I bought this to add to my computer as a back-up hard drive. My main HD is also 160GB, so they are a good match. It was easy to copy all important files from my my main HD to this new back-up hard drive.
