Western Digital Black.

P. Lee "PML4", Amazon
26 October 2013
  • Summary: Have installed several hard drives in my own PC over the years and have no problems with the black line on any install that I have done. I believe that they are the best dick drive you can get for the money and have not had one fail to date.

My "Go to" Conventional Drive of Choice

Araxiel, Amazon
10 September 2012
  • Summary: I've built quite a few computers over the years and have always used Western Digital hard drives. They just seem to hold up a lot better than those of other manufacturers. For the past three years I have bought this one and the 750 GB version. I don't have any regrets. Windows 7 set up on a new machine is easy and accurate. Just make sure you don't have two drives in the machine at the same time when performing an initial Win 7 setup.

Great Drive, Terrible Packaging

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 April 2011
  • Summary: This is a fast, quiet, and reliable drive--I love it. However, the reseller (Amazon) failed to package the OEM drive in manufacturer approved packaging as described in Western Digital's Warranty Services section of their website. I was disappointed to find that the drive had shifted in the two Airspeed Inflatable Packaging pillows and the drive was in direct contact with the cardboard box.

WARNING: THIS IS NOT RAID ARRAY COMPATABLE!

The Bonedaddy, Amazon
15 April 2011
  • Summary: WARNING: THIS IS NOT RAID ARRAY COMPATABLE! I researched this drive and it was portrayed as top of the line. I then ordered 2 of these Western Digital 500 GB Caviar Black SATA 7200 RPM 32 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive WD5001AALS. Then by chance I saw a review stating that these drives were not Raid Array compatible. Upon digging deeper on the web I found that this was true. Nowhere on Amazon or Western Digital's web site was this information available.

good hard drive

JV, Amazon
14 April 2011
  • Summary: Bought this hard disc after reading reviews of the WD Caviar Black drives. I didn't need more than 500GB as I am running the OS and applications from this disc. I have all other storage items (music, pictures, documents, etc.) on another hard drive. This disc is incredibly fast and is highly recommended. One word of caution. This is an OEM drive so it comes with the drive and anti-static bag only. No discs, screws, etc.
