Did Not Work

M. Kotecki, Amazon
20 January 2011
  • Summary: I returned the HDD because I bought it to use in my ReplayTV DVR but it wouldn't work because of the 16MB cache. I'm sure it would have worked fine in a PC.

Dreadful Packaging

Bill "Bill", Amazon
8 April 2010
  • Summary: Drive arrived at the bottom of a large box, with a few 'air' packets on top of it. Absolutely nothing to stop the drive bouncing around the large box during its journey.

  • Excerpt: I really do love Western Digital hard drives as they deliver great performance and storage at very reasonable prices. This is no exception. This is a very cool and compact metal-cased storage device that works as well as you would expect from Western Digital, which means phenomenal performance at a great price. Design Its presented in a big box, and I was very relieved (and also surprised) to see how small it actually is!
  • Pros: quick, very large, efficient internal hard drive
  • Cons: opening up the pc tower  -  urgh !

  • Excerpt: В принципе он хорош (правдо медлиноват) но целесообразно его использовать в паре с ещё одним (если вдруг "BAD", то наиболее важную инфу сможете скопировать с него... а потом как выше я писал).Но если вы не хотите иметь с ним проблем, то просто не разбивайте его и будет всё в Ажуре!
  • Pros: дешёвый и тихий
  • Cons: При разбивке может ни с того- ни с сего показать ,что он "Bad" (причем если на него зайти через другой веник, то инфа вся в сохранности находится),но к сожалению такое лечится только тотальным форматированием всего диска и последующей разбивки потом заново.)

  • Excerpt: Данный экземпляр пока работает довольно хорошо:
  • Pros: максимальное отношение Ёмкость/Цена
  • Cons: 1)Фирма: всемирно известный производитель наиболее ненадёжных ЖД 2)Довольно-таки маленькая скорость приема/передечи информации - всего-то 100 Мб/с!
