Needs more packaging

S. Pawar, Amazon
1 October 2010
  • 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.

Hard drives

Steven B. Mcallister, Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this hard drive twice. The first time I was sent the wrong drive. It was for a laptop computer. It just so happened that it worked in my laptop so I kept it and reordered. The seconed time I did for a fact receibe the correct part that I ordered. I guess mistakes happen. All in all, I did use both hard drives.

Great product, arrived early, poor advertising on Amazon's part

JR Lewis, Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased two 500 GB drives and configured them in a RAID0. The hard drives work great and the price is much cheaper than the brick and mortar stores. However, the drives arrived OEM (ie. no fancy packaging, no written documentation, just the drives). Could not find any indication on the website that these drive were sold as OEM.

  • 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

Seems OK

rowantree, Amazon
13 October 2008
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Rapporto qualita/prezzo molto buona,perfetto per navigazione web,visione di film e gaming. Abbastanza silensioso e capace di rimanere acceso diversi giorni senza subire riscaldamenti eccessivi. L'affidabilita della marca è una delle migliori nel mondo quindi problemi dovuti al mal funzionamento del prodotto sono facilmente risolvibili con una semplice ricerca sul web o avendo la garanzia del prodotto e mandandolo in assistenza, anche se personalmente ...
  • Pros: rapporto qualita/prezzo

Western Digital WD5000AAKS 500 GB

Ciao
26 December 2013
  • Excerpt: 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.
