Summary: I had a 500gb hard drive, I need more space for games. I bought this 2tb hard drive and used western digital's drive clone, my entire operation system (plus all my files) was transferred over and everything work great!+ two year warranty so I have now worries.
Summary: Simple to install. Only problem was that Windows would not recognize the drive even though it was recognized at boot up and on the device list. Had to contact customer support at WD and they told me the drive needed to be initialized. Since there were NO INSTRUCTIONS with the drive, I was not aware. I have installed hard drives before, some needed initialized and some did not, but there were instructions included with the drive that told me what was needed.
Excerpt: Also been running 10 of these for the last 4 years in my backup and media servers and have never had a single problem with them. Definitely will be buying more soon. I recommend them for backup servers. I backup all of my devices to a single server with 5 of these in running ZFS and it works like a dream.
Excerpt: Brilliant drive! I have it up and running for 4 years now without incident - where all my Seagates have repeatedly packed up.. I thought I'd throw in my vote of confidence as I'm about to buy another Green based on the AWESOME experience I had with the last.. Definitely a 5 star buy - if you want it to run your operating system go Blue.. Otherwise, for a solid storage facility, go Green..
Excerpt: Excellent drive! You're not suppose to be using "Green" drives as OS drives. They use aggressive power saving technology. Western Digital's site recommends using them as secondary storage drives only.
