Limited 1year warranty

independent tech support, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: I was told by Western digital that Blue drives should not be left on for long periods of time because they are not meant for heavy usage. It is their cheapest drive and is not recommended for a heavy used PC. The warranty is short. I have had a few fail after 1 year. I was told this is normal. Sorry but I found out the hard way.

Works

Engineering Geek, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this hard drive to build a laptop in order to sell it. But naturally, no one bought the laptop so I'm using it as a media server. The drive just works, not sure what else I can say about it.

Fixed my problem

Brian D. Schrand, Amazon
2 August 2013
  • Summary: This is one of those things where it either works and its great or it doesn't and its terrible. This harddrive was compatible with my Dell and got us back up and running. Too early to say if it was a good value because only time will tell.

Good little drive for my old laptop

Steve B, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: I cannot attest to it's speed since my computer is 6 years old and a little long in the tooth, but it works fine and is much larger than the original. I had so much room that I partitioned it into three, two large main ones and a small drive that I set up with the OS. I can boot on the small partition and perform drive maintenance on the other partitions and vice versa. Very convenient.

Great little hardrive

will, Amazon
14 July 2012
  • Summary: I am using this hardrive for a smoothwall installation. I needed a low power, quiet hardrive, and this fit the bill. Its large enough to hold quite a big squid cache as well. I cannot comment on speeds, as it rarely gets pushed. The rest of the system is an atom d2700 and 2gb of ram. Works great. I hope it lasts a long time.
