Summary: The best cost effective storage solution is not worth being your primary hard drive. Its super silent, super cool while working but data transfer rates are just hovering near 40MB/s. With 64MB cache and WD name, I expected better speed. But, theres nothing to beat the value for money this product offers. Recommended, but do not expect the performance of caviar black series from this. Awesome value for money, super quiet operation and low power consumption.
Summary: I had a Seagate 1TB HDD crashed got a new one under warranty and it crashed again after a year since then I am having a WD 1tb working GR8 till It became full.. Bought this after reading many comparison and reviews.. Installed it as soon as I got it.. Fantastic!!!! for storage.. I m running win 7 64 bit with 4 gb RAM on i3 sec gen It gave me speeds of 30-50mb/s copying from one partition to another..and similar speed copying from one HD to another.
Summary: I placed the order for this drive on 11 June 2012 @ Rs 6696/-and received the HDD on 12th June 2012.FLIPKART ROCKS!!!. NONE OF THE VENDORS AT SP ROAD IN BANGALORE WERE READY TO SELL AT THAT RATE!!. The primary reason why i purchased this drive was because of the 2 TB size and the minor (Rs1300) price difference between 1TB and 2 TB Drives. BUT THERE IS SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE TO CONSIDER BEFORE BUYING THIS DRIVE.
