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.

Fixed My Dell Zino

Roger N. Bryan, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • 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. Only reason I didn't give it five stars is that it shouldn't have failed in the first place -- but maybe that was my fault for running Norton Ant-Virus full system scans on a daily basis --...

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 problem, degraded into bad blocks, etc). Western Digital is still my go-to company for drives...but I can't give them 5 stars based on this experience.

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. It is quiet and I have had no crashes or any problems of that sort. I am using this drive with Windows Xp 32 bit and have it separated into two partitions. So far so good.

Pleased so far, but?

  • Summary: The drive seems to function properly, no problems and very quiet, but...my windows experience rating is telling me this is the lowest rated item on the list at 5.9, everything else(hardware) is 7.0 or higher.So i wonder. Could that be an issue?

No problems so far

  • Summary: Purchased two of this HDD for backup, based also on some external reviews. So far no problems, hope that the relative low data amount / density will also give a good lifetime.

It - Just Works

Timothy Liebe, Amazon
1 June 2009
  • Summary: To date, there isn't much to say about this drive other than it hasn't died on me a few weeks in, so it works fine. It's a hard drive - it does it its job. End of story.
