Good, reliable HDD

Evan B., Newegg
17 July 2015
  • Summary: Newer models are now cheaper and easier to find.
  • Pros: I've been using one of these drives in my current PC for about a year and-a-half (have used it in more than one PC) now and it has never once failed me so far. Have got 16,449 hours (1.87 years) of power-on time on the drive with no bad or weak sectors detected on the disk.
  • Cons: None at this time, I've never had any problems or failures with the disk.
