Not the fastest or biggest, but realiable

  • Summary: I purchased this hard drive in 2009 when my older 100GB hard drive finally started to show its age - and when programs started needing 5-15GB each. It was priced right at the time and was close to the upper end on the size scale, although if memory serves - 500GB may have been the standard back...

Dependable

  • Summary: I will still buy Western Digital hard drives. They are the only brand i trust and used for years. Drive is horizontal and runs better. I have two windows OS on it.
  • Pros: Western Digital. Reinstalled many OS over time and still running strong.
  • Cons: Don't install in vertical hard drive cage. Had some issues loading windows while vertical. Over time it slowed down when installed in that position.

  • Pros: Pretty fast and so far reliable can't say too much though as I have only had it for a little over a week now
  • Cons: While I was downloading SCII onto my new computer I suddenly was surprised with a BSOD I tracked it down and it turned out it was from the HDD after rebooting and testing everything, it hasn't had any problems since but I felt that I had to mark an egg off because of this but for this price and s...

  • Summary: i live in a dusty town in a dusty state (i have to air out my case every 3weeks). in my neighborhood, anything with electronics AND moving parts lasting a year+ is a good investment (ie, ps3's burn out in about 6-8 months, 360's are a joke)
  • Pros: Still working, still quiet. Tray has stuck only 1 time, required a physical ejection. i live in a dusty town in a dusty state (i have to air out my case every 3weeks). in my neighborhood, anything with electronics AND moving parts lasting a year+ is a good investment (ie, ps3's burn out in about ...
  • Cons: none. i rarely give 5 eggs, so dont think of it as negative, just not AMAZING! afterall, its never gone out and mowed my yard for me.

good drive

Tim J., Newegg

  • Summary: make sure you have a sata cable of adequate length. I measured mine and thought I had a good #. Next time I'll go 2" longer. I'd use wd's drivers and find free backup sw rather than the backup sw they have at the support site.
  • Pros: sata, quiet, fast
  • Cons: wd backup software. Had to reformat master drive and wd's acronis? sw almost lost it all.
