Summary: Installation was simple and sweet with it, came in good condition too. It's a nice harddrive to get if you don't want to pay the high price of a SSD or even a 1TB drive, but need more room, especially if you're on a low budget for your computer build.
No problems so far; great price for enterprise drive

Summary: I got this drive and put it in. It was low-level formatted, but not formatted nor partitioned. I formatted as an uncompressed, NTFS drive, with 4k sectors; since a test for a different WD drive online suggested no performance increase for large file reads for 8k.
Summary: No mailing issues and the drive was brand new; no internal/external damages either. Hook-up was simple and efficient. After installing it onto my OS (Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) I had 648 GB free so the amount used for various system tasks wasn't too bad either.
