Works like I had hoped
1 April 2012
Summary: I was scared to buy this refurb but after opening the box and seeing it sealed in plastic I knew it was at least a good start. The install of the drive and os went perfect and is still running like a champ.
Summary: Surprised by the low number of stars for this product I decided to read the reviews. They didn't really make sense so I bought the drive any way. So glad I did, it is exactly what it says it is in the description. It fitted easily into my Acer laptop, and worked with no problem at all. At a great price too, I am very impressed! Don't be misled by the number of stars, read the actual reviews, I'm glad I did.
Summary: Listen all you very naughty sellers. When advertising an item for sale, and specifying its part number, you should be sure what you are selling. WD1600BEVE is specifically an IDE interface hard drive. It is not a WD1600BEVT which has a SATA interface. Anyone searching for an IDE interface drive might genuinely choose this item, but what they will receive is a completely different item that looks similar, but has a SATA interface.
Summary: At first glance this drive would appear to be a 31/2in drive as the photograph shows. In reality it is a 21/2in drive so beware and read the small print before you buy. Not suitable for my desktop computer as this is really for laptops or very small form factor cases. Returned to ADMI without any problems and received a refund, but wasted time without a drive while I found an alternative.
Excerpt: Где-то месяц назад начались тормоза в работе компьютера. Перепроверили все, подозрение было на жесткий диск - обнаружилась очередь чтения записи 3,2. В итоге он умер совсем. Пришлось заменить.
