This was the last straw

I. Slatas, Amazon
24 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought a WD300BB (30GB) back in '01 and bought a WD1200JB in '02 to act as a back up drive for a few computers. I got it just in time because after less than 18 months the WD300BB got the click of death. So the WD1200JB became the primary drive for a few months until I bought this drive, the WD1600JB in late '03. While the WD1600JB was shipping, the WD1200JB partially died.

Western Digital is the best, but avoid this model!

Bryan Chambers, Amazon
2 October 2010
  • Summary: Everything about this drive is pretty standard. I've had nothing but good luck with WD hard drives, I even have 3 in my home machine. HOWEVER, I bought this particular model around May of 06, and now in July of 07 it has already crashed.. 4-8 years is a reasonable life expectancy for WD drives, so this one fails miserably.. Just choose a different model, there are many..

I REALLY needed this!

Jan, Amazon
19 August 2010
  • Summary: After enduring too many instances of "The Blue Screen of Death," it eventually became apparent that the culprit was a bad HD. Had to buy two as they needed to be identical. The great price and prompt shipping on these gave my aging computer a new 'lease on life!' Now, I like my computer again!

Works great for me!

Will S., Amazon

  • Summary: Too bad the other reviewers have had so many issues with these drives. Mine is going strong four years later. I can't complain about the performance. I keep it regularly defragged and so far it is still ticking!

Just fine.

Dutchman2001, Amazon

  • Summary: Not much to say either. This was the exact replacement drive in a Sony RDR-HX900 DVD recorder. Worked just like it was suppose to. Saved me about $90 replacing it myself.

Handles the heat well

NorCal Explorer "Michael", Amazon
7 June 2010
  • Summary: I have had this in my imac G3 for about a month with not one problem other than it is a little warmer than the last hard drive. This is to be expected since the old one was 5,400 rev and this is a speedy 7,200 which has improved boot time greatly. Even though the imac does not have a fan in it, the hard drive still runs only slightly hotter than the 5,400. It has not gone over 108 F, but this might change once summer comes. Great drive for the price.
