Very good

Steven A. Niemoeller "Steve", Amazon
2 July 2010
  • 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. The only thing I could possibly complain about is that it didn't come with the mounting screws.

Good Drive, Software Limited

Tony Stone, Amazon
1 July 2010
  • 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. Also, Windows prior to Vista is normally limited to 137 GB.

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

Texas Ric "Ric", Amazon
20 May 2009
  • 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. Otherwise buy the "retail" version that comes with the instructions and installtion kit and is cheaper. Western Digital WD5000JB-Retail 500GB EIDE Caviar SE Hard Drive for Desktop PC I see no reason to get this HD when the other is cheaper and the same HD.

  • 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! At 8cm in width, ...
  • Pros: quick, very large, efficient internal hard drive
  • Cons: opening up the pc tower  -  urgh !

  • Summary: Hallo Ihr Lieben Leser und Leserinnen und Bewerter! Nach dem ich mit meinen Sohn Maik und seiner Familie am Sontag mit meinen Fondue viel Spaß hatten,habe ich mit meinen Camkorder einige schöne Vidios aufgenommen.Mein Mann speichert diese auf seiner Festplatte in seinem Computer.Mit einen Programm kan er die Vidios dann bearbeiten. Um Vidios auf einer Festplatte zu speichern braucht man viel Speicherplatz.

  • Excerpt: По-моему, вполне достойный жесткий диск.
  • Pros: Большой объем. Небольшая цена. Не знаю, но мне показался достаточно надежным: системный блок нередко транспортируется не в лучших условиях - трясет, роняет. Но все по-прежнему продолжает работать.
  • Cons: Действительно нагревается. Но чтоб до 40 градусов - никогда (не понимаю, откуда появились описанные 47 градусов). Работает в паре с "ветераном" - тоже фирмы Western Digital(ему 5 лет).
