Needs more packaging

Summary: I just got this so i cant say anything about it's durability. I did format it and install windows and it works fine. But the packaging is keeping this from a 5 star item. Box wasnt taped up, and only thing keeping it from shaking in the box is a few cardboard like grooves. I was concerned it might be broken. Hopefully it doesnt brake down on me like other reviewers say.
Summary: Not much to say really. a hard drive is a hard drive :P It went into my PC and worked fine until I replaced my PC. can't comment much on how long it would have lasted or anything as this was just a cheap replacement until I could afford a better PC
Summary: Swapped out an 80GB Seagate Barracuda for this Western Digital 500GB baby. Easy enough to install: Acronis True Image, straight swap, restore the disk image and resize the disk partitions (using EASEUS Home Partition Manager - a free utility). I don't think it's quite as quiet as the one its replaced but it's not quite Whisper Quiet. That said it's nothing like as bad as a Maxtor I had in a Dell which sounded like someone rattling a bag of marbles.
Summary: Western Digital una de las cosas buenas de las que dispone es el buen precio que van a ofrecer, porque mientras otras marcas nos van a vender lo mismo a 70€ éste disco duro va a costar 50€. La diferencia de precio es de 20€ y yo en un principio que la calidad era algo que iba a bajar mucho al ser tan barato y tener tanta diferencia de precio entre unos y otros.
Pros: За год использования никаких ошибок и поломок, тихая работа. 2 раза выдержал выключение света и ни одного битого сектора(проверял HD tuner).До этого был хитачи и за пол года вышел из строя.Был куплен за 1300 деревянных.
