replacement HD

Dennis, Amazon
24 September 2013
  • Summary: I discovered one of my hard drives in RAID 1 (mirror) was bad and finding the exact same drive that was installed in a 4 year old computer wasn't so easy. Western Digital discontinued it about 6 months ago. I managed to find the exact same drive on Amazon so I bought 2 in case I have another hard drive go bad. so far so good...it either functions properly or it doesn't, right?

Garbage

D. W. K. JNR "Deegz", Amazon
15 October 2012
  • Summary: This review comes very late but it still doesn't change the fact that this hard drive is utterly useless. This item was purchased to serve as a slave in April 2010. It performed well doing the few tasks that I required of it, then one horrible day in July 2010 it went BYE BYE. That was a horrible experience for me and I have not purchased a WD device since. I am in need of a new HD now as the Master seems to failing. I am wondering now if I should try WD now.

  • Summary: Works great, extremely fast, and very quiet. Great product. Highly recommend. I got this drive to replace an old loud hard drive and its SO much quieter but I wasnt expecting it to be so much faster also.

Works like a Champ!

Sparky256, Amazon

  • Summary: These hard drives are ideal for those needing 2 to 4 drives in their computer, but do not want the high cost or compatability issues associated with hard drives over 1 TB in size. These are ideal for the Dell Precision series using RAID 0 or 1, giving the user as much as 3TB of continous storage space or 1.5TB of "Mirrored" storage (RAID 1).

Great Drive

Greg, Amazon
30 October 2010
  • Summary: It does not matter that the speed of this drive is 5400 rpm. The drive is well engineered and has this "IntelliPower" and "IntelliSeek" technology. I got mine today and did a few speed tests with Bart's Stuff Test v5.1.4: I have a 300GB 10k rpm Velociraptor that has a read/write speed of about 93 MB/s This drive got around 81 MB/s. Thats incredible!

Fantastic Drive!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
28 October 2010
  • Summary: As usual this WD drive worked flawlessly. Have been using them for all my built systems since the 90s and only one has ever crashed and data unrecoverable. My last WD drive lasted over 7 years, and finally needed more room. Still using the old 250gb WD in an ide enclosure and it runs great. The drive installed perfectly with Windows xp with no problems whatsoever. I've read on other reviews that for some xp systems you should use the eads drives.

Install on Dell XPS 410

Debra Payette, Amazon
10 October 2010
  • Summary: Install went relatively smooth using the Acronis software I downloaded from the Western Digital site. At first I had some trouble with the cable I purchased from CiTi (through Amazon) [[ASIN:B0001Y8UI4 StarTech.com 18IN SATA HARD DRIVE CABLE ( SATA18RA1 )]. The system did not recognize the drive. To see if the cable was the problem I used the DVD/CD cable temporarily. That worked.
