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.

Amazon to the "Rescue" ...

Cjay, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: Its Fixed my System ... This HD is easy to install and it is an excellent choice in replacing the old 2002 year Maxtor 80 GB drive. Fortunately I still had the WIN XP-p w/SP3 CD and installation was a snap. The most difficult part was actually opening up the DEll Tower enclosure. Installation of the other software and WIN XP updates (114) and setting the user options takes considerable time even with a ADSL connecrion. THe XP system is like "NEW" again! //S//Cjay.

Needed a new drive for storage server

Steven A. Lacrosse "tech geek", Amazon
4 December 2012
  • Summary: One of the drives on my storage server failed and I needed to find a replacement drive fast. Stores like Best Buy and other computer parts stores in my area no longer carry these drives in house, and ordering one through their websites was a least cost-effective solution for my needs.

Hard Drive Failure Made Less Annoying

Thomas A. Swilling, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: Western Digital has been a trusted name in hard drives since there were hard drives. I trust Western Digital to deliver quality, dependable products, and I have not been disappointed yet. When my hard drive failed, I bought a 500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue SATA hard drive; but since my machine was built before SATA hard drives, my machine would not boot to a SATA drive, even when using a SATA to IDE adapter.

Handles the heat well

NorCal Explorer "Michael", Amazon
22 October 2007
  • 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.
