Solid

  • Summary: I just installed this last night. This is a replacement for a business computer that only had an 80 gig drive. The new drive was instantly recognized by the computer and formatting was not required. It is not excessively noisy. I cannot comment on the durability at this point.

  • Summary: After about four years of service the WD hard drive in my Zino ground to a halt. I opened up the Zino got he part number of the hard drive, searched Amazon for a replacement, and ordered the WD unit. When I received it I installed it, buttoned up the Zino, and I was back in business.

Failed after 3 years and 3 weeks

danull, Amazon
10 May 2011
  • Summary: Gave me a good 3 years of service, and failed 3 years and 3 weeks after I bought the computer. Funny how that works - the warranty for these drives is 3 years. The good news is that it was a slow failure and I was able to back up most of my data while the drive faded away (began with performance...

Not for beginners

desert rose "Desert Rose Books", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a bare bones drive- no cables, no cd, nothing. So if you have never installed a hard drive before do your research first and buy a sata cable. Amazon seemed to take their time shipping this item. All that being said I have used the drive for a month and it appears to be functioning well.

Works

Jonathan L., Newegg
22 January 2011
  • Pros: Cheap. Reasonably fast for price. Not much to say here - its a standard drive.
  • Cons: The drive's cover doesn't mention jumper settings - if you have certain first generation SATA controllers (eg. the VT8237), you will need to place a jumper on pins 5 and 6 to use it, since SATA autospeed negotiation doesn't kick in properly - See WD's Knowledge base FAQ answer id 1337 for details.

Good for data/back-up

jeff b., Newegg
17 January 2011
  • Summary: I had 2 of these in raid 0 for windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. Worked alright. But I swapped them out for a 500 gig WD caviar black with 32 MB cache. I'm much happier with that. But don't get me wrong , these are good drives. I use these now for storage and back-up
  • Pros: Good solid drives. Reliable. Good for back-up/data.
  • Cons: none really.
