Almost 7 years...

  • Summary: My Dell XPS 420 arrived with a WD5000AAKS drive installed, back in January 2008. The drive has worked well since then (almost 7 years now!) and it's been quiet, fast and reliable. Lots of music and video files, and I download a lot of things that get offloaded to DVD to make room for more. I also use this for multi-track recording, editing and mixing. In other words, this drive has seen a lot of use.

  • Summary: All I can say is the drive works. I use it as part of a RAID-1 setup so reliability isn't as critical as it would be normally. Therefore I felt like I could take a risk on buying this used drive. I've had it for several months now and it has given me no problems at all.

It was OK -

  • Summary: Arrived in good order and was well packed. I think for the price there should have been mounting hardware (4 screws) and a spec sheet. Drive was easy to install and worked well.
