Summary: If you must gain access to a HDD that is no longer manufactured nor available and you are willing to pay a premium for a factory-fresh product, I suggest you contact this organization.

Cons: Sadly, I had to pay a premium for an outdated product but there were few options and none were better than dealing with the folks I selected.
Summary: Great price for a hard drive that is hard to find. As you know they no longer make IDE Hard Drives and finding one for your old computer is a challenge, and 500 GB, that is very hard. If you can find one make sure that it's a Western Digital, they are well made and will last you a while.
Summary: I purchased this unit to hot swap the hard drive out of my old XBOX console. The operation was a complete success. I was able to clone and lock this hard drive with no problems. I have since been able to rip all of my XBOX games to the hard drive and have played the games for hours with no problems.
Summary: Installation was a breeze. It's quiet and fast. Very satisfied with it. I used to be a big Seagate fan, but have been disappointed with my last couple of Seagates. I now put Western Digital as my personal favorite.
