Summary: I purchased this drive to replace a dying Seagate within our living room media center (win7). The drive does indeed live up to it's word: it's dead quiet (yay), fast and cool running - so far it's working great.
WD 2TB drives in D-link 323 DSN network storage/print server
Paul E. Hines "Paul Hines", Amazon
28 February 2011
Summary: Last summer I purchased a D-link 323 DSN network server through Amazon, just installing two older SATA drives I had from an old computer in it. With it being very useful as a backup storage for a Dell XP laptop, my Dell Win 7 notebook and my Systemax Win 7 desktop I installed two Western Digital 2...
Summary: I have 6 Hitachi 2TB drives some of which I have had for as long as a year. I have had no problems with any of them. I have just one of these Western Digital AV drives. It failed after less than one month of light use. What else can be said?
Summary: I bought this drive with a Thermaltake Docking Station for expanded storage on a DirecTV HR20-700 DVR. The installation is idiot proof, the drive runs virtually silently in a large room, and while warm to the touch, certainly not hot.
Summary: I originally bought this hard drive with an intention of installing it into my third generation TiVo, but this undertaking turned out to be futile for reasons that I will not go into here. I decided instead to install it into my living room media PC and thus expand its storage.
Summary: I bought this to replace my original iMac hard-drive. This is not only much larger in capacity than my original iMac hard-drive (original was 350 GB in size) but also much faster. I got it installed at BestBuy for $40. This was one of the best upgrade choices I have made in a long time.
Great For PC's but Incompatible With Docking Stations and USB Wireless Routers
21 February 2010
Summary: Western Digital needs to test these drives for compatibility with dual USB/sata docking stations and for use when sharing USB ports with other drives. I struck-out every time when trying to use this drive for storing home media files when connected to the new premium Netgear 3700 router with USB...
Summary: Habe die Platte nicht hier gekauft, möchte aber dennoch kurz meine Erfahrungen schildern. Anfangs war alles super: schnell, leise, kühl. Schon bei der Umstellung meinen Systems auf Windows 8 wurde die Platte nicht mehr beim Namen genannt, sondern hatte nur noch eine Nummer.
Summary: Ich dachte mir, ich hätte ein sicheren Datenspeicher für 3 oder 4 Jahren, aber danach sieht es nicht mehr aus. Ich habe diese Festplatte im Mai gekauft, heute (Mitte Juni) ist mir ausgefallen, dass sie bereits einen unkorrigierbaren Sektor besitzt.
