Many other choices - I don't recommend this drive

  • Summary: I purchased this drive from Amazon. It lasted a little over a year, then died. Since I had been using Western Digital drives exclusively since I started building computers in the late 1990s, I assumed that this was a fluke, and I purchased and installed another one, same model as the one that died. The second one lasted a year and a month before it also died.

  • Summary: I bought this one in 2008. In less of two years it stopped! At first everything was OK, but before a year of use, my computer said "the disk is very damaged and recommended change it", in that times, bug reports indicated that in Palimpset (disk tool of Ubuntu 9.10) had a bug reading S.M.A.R.T. showing warning messages by mistake and Windows disk tool didn't detect anything wrong, then ignoring the Ubuntu warnings, I kept using it.
