Slow but works

  • Pros: HEY! it works :)
  • Cons: however its pretty slow... takes a while for it to boot up and open any programs... deferentially bottle-necking my rig... I bought another WD BLUE used harddrive which ran fast but this one is a bit slow.... I would only recommend getting this for old computers and not new rigs

5 years, still running great.

Jesse W., Newegg
15 January 2015
  • Summary: Came here to get a second hard drive because 250GB just isn't enough anymore. Think I'm going to buy two more of these.
  • Pros: Was surprised to find this refurbished hard drive still up for sale. I bought it for a budget built nearly 5 years ago. I've replaced or added to almost every part of the PC, besides the CPU and mobo, but this little harddrive is still chugging along.
  • Cons: None.

  • Summary: Some other reviews on here have noted that some of the WD Blue drives were defective, and in their case they should be entitled to a full refund. But not me. I am ONE SATISFIED CUSTOMER, this $20 250GB WD HDD has saved my mother's computer and by extension has saved her from spending hundreds on a...
  • Pros: No noticeable clicking noise, superb response time, $20 Black Friday price tag, durable, dependable
  • Cons: Nothing significant enough to waste time noting here

VERY SOLID DRIVE - KEEP BETWEEN 30-40 IF POSSIBLE, MAYBE UP TO 45, BUT UP TO 50 MIGHT CAUSE PROBLEMS

Richard Estes, Amazon
24 November 2014
  • Summary: i NORMALLY BUY ONLY WD - THEY ARE PRETTY GOOD DRIVES, AND THE SMART DATA (HD Tune health data) makes sense, unlike some others that use long lists of hex numbers, tracking several sets of variables that don't really tell me that much about drive condition.
