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.
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.

No Problems. I have owned several of these hard drives

Summary: If you are looking for reliability, the WD1600JB is very well made. I have owned several of these drives and NEVER had a problem. They take a licken but keep on ticken. Also, I noticed the run very cool.
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!
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!
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.
