Good Drive, Software Limited

Tony Stone, Amazon
15 May 2011
  • Summary: This bare bones drive has software available at the Western Digital site, which will partition and format the drive and copy the old drive. However, it does not support dual boot. You can partition the drive and copy the data to both OS drives, but the second OS will not boot.

Very good

Steven A. Niemoeller, Amazon
9 May 2011
  • Summary: Purchased this item with another item and selected super saver shipping. The other item I ordered was shipped the same day even though I selected super saver shipping. This item however was shipped 5 days later which was somewhat of a disappointment. This hard drive is exceptionally fast and quiet.

Western Digital 500GB EIDE Caviar SE Hard Drive (Bulk Packaging)

Texas Ric, Amazon
28 April 2011
  • Summary: Nice replacement/upgrade HD for older EIDE systems. Be aware "Bulk packaging", there are no instructions, cables or screws included. You must know how to add a hard drive and get Windows to "see" it.

Two years later still going strong

Alejandro S., Newegg
30 January 2011
  • Summary: I have this drive as main system drive in my XP Pro Dell Dimension 8200 since 31Jan09 (2 years) working almost 24/7. I recommend this drive, I'd purchase it again, but remember as with any other drive to do regular backups in case you run out of good luck!
  • Pros: Stable drive, not loud.
  • Cons: In two years of 24/7 use I had three instances of bad sectors whereby the PC wouldn't boot. However I was able to fix it using WD Data Lifeguard Tools.

Lasted almost 3 years in my Tivo

Joseph K., Newegg
14 January 2011
  • Pros: Decent drive for the job. It was installed in my Series 2 Tivo. Therefore it was working 24/7 from the day I installed it till the day it died. Installed on 03/2008 and died 01/2011. Lucky im a month still under warranty.
  • Cons: Angry because I lost all of my recordings because of the drive failure. Seems like it is something related to the hardware because my PC won't even recognize that the drive is installed in the BIOS.

Craig R., Newegg
31 December 2010
  • Summary: Have never experienced any issues with WD HD's in the past 10 years. I may be lucky an djust not have had any DOAs. This drive is not as fast as the Black or Raptor's, although a great Brand, Good Specs at at a great price - from New Egg - The Great Place !
  • Pros: Great PATA HD, at the time a very large HD and still a good bang for the buck ! Very Reliable HD, Its WD ! If you do not have SATA, and still need PATA, then this drive is highly recommended.
  • Cons: Warranty could be longer, although this is the industry standard
