Great Drive

Leviticus H. Rolle, Amazon
19 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this 500GB drive last year of June or maybe July (I gotta check) and still kicking to date! Only to find out that 500GB wasn't enough! :) I got this for my first PC build that I'm using right now to write this review. It's a really great drive.

Added this as a second drive

DCwom, Amazon
24 July 2009
  • Summary: Added this as a second drive, the "green" spin up feature saves energy which is fine since this is a second drive in the machine for backups, video, etc. The spin up is very fast and not noticeable when used as a second drive; not sure how this would behave as a primary drive.

Nice idea, flawed execution

Keyan, Amazon
21 April 2009
  • Summary: This drive (and all other of the "green" line) has a nice premise - why spin the drive at full rotational speed when most of the time it is idle or underutilized? Unfortunately, the execution of this idea is flawed.

Western Digital Caviar Green 500 GB Bulk/OEM Hard Drive

Mill Creek, Amazon
10 April 2009
  • Summary: Bought this hard-drive to replace a failed Maxtor 6Y250M0 hard-drive in my Dell Optiplex GX280. It was very easy to replace, removed the failed drive and installed the new drive. Reinstalled the operating system and within an hour the PC was up and running again.

Excellent drive

Amazon Customer "j allen", Amazon
16 March 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this drive to go with my Intel D945GCLF2 ATOM m-itx low power board (total power consumption ~40w when busy). It is the smallest capacity "green" version drive that WD makes. It still uses less power that even smaller drives. Quiet, fast, excellent price, and free shipping.

Western Digital 500 GB GreenPower 3.5-Inch SATA WD5000AACS

Michelle L. Gibson, Amazon
10 March 2009
  • Summary: I read mixed reviews about this drive but decided to try it anyway. I cloned my old drive to it and it's been running fine ever since, no problems whatsoever. It replaced a 250GB IDE drive so now my 2nd computer is strictly SATA and I'm very happy with it. Great product!
