Reviews and Problems with Western Digital Caviar Blue Sata 300 7200RPM 250GB 16MB (WD2500AAKS)
Showing 1-10 of 37
VERY SOLID DRIVE - KEEP BETWEEN 30-40 IF POSSIBLE, MAYBE UP TO 45, BUT UP TO 50 MIGHT CAUSE PROBLEMS

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.
Summary: Bought two of these to make my first RAID0 array. Very fast and very quiet. And when I say quiet I mean silent. I literally cannot hear them churning like I could my old EIDE drive (WD also, of course).
Summary: I ordered this to upgrade my imac G5 160GB stock hard drive. I wasn't sure if it would be compatible as a replacement for the Caviar but it is. The SATA plugs fit just fine. I would recommend this if you are looking for an upgrade to your existing western digital drive.
Summary: I bought this hard drive to put in a 4 year old computer because I toasted the old hard drive. I installed the drive in place of the old one with no problems, I popped in a Windows 7 DVD and was off to the races.
