Good hard drive for the money

  • Summary: See pros and cons. The drive was physically easy to install but would not load software until I re-formatted it and deleted all partitions.
  • Pros: reliable
  • Cons: Came already partitioned with drive letters assigned requiring deletions to properly install operating system and data.

  • Summary: I bought 2 of these drives back in 2010. Well, the SATA2 versions to be honest. At first, I bought them to create  a RAID1 volume on my motherboard, but the RAID software was so glitchy that I decided to drop  the ball on RAID1. About 1 1/2 year after I bought them, one of the drive was having bad sectors issues. Because these drives are 5 years warranty, I contacted WD and got my RMA very quickly.
  • Pros: Very good performances, Quiet, 5 years warranty
  • Cons: Pricey

Very Adequate

  • Summary: So, I upgraded from an old WD Caviar 120gb from 2006 and what I can say is this drive is faster and quieter and of course it's bigger, lol. After running a speed test on the drive, I can say that it is worth the value, but it's not screaming fast. I guess that's solid state territory. At this price though, I don't care if it's only half the speed of a solid state. (I don't actually know how much faster sold states are.

  • Summary: Danke einer SSD fürs OS nutze ich die Platte ausschliesslich als Massenspeicher. Bislang gab es noch keine Aussetzer, deswegen gehe ich davon aus, dass ich erst nach einer längeren Betriebszeit ein abschliessendes Urteil geben kann. Den Abzug gibt es für das für meinen Geschmack zu laute Laufwerk. Das geht auch besser.
