Almost 7 years...

Dave Thorson, Amazon
27 September 2014
  • 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.

Worked ok for 2 years - then crashed

GailH, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought this WD5000AAKS 2 years ago. Has been working fine, until two weeks ago, The Windows system started intermittently issuing events 9, 11 and 51 (parity errors on disk drive). I neglected replacing that disk then (I didn't understand which disk drive it was - the PC has 3 drives). Now the system can't read that disk, at all.
