Summary: I benchmarked this drive, using Crystal Disc Mark, at 88 MB/sec Sequential Read speed and 90 MB/sec Sequential Write speed with up to 4 GB file size in the mid sector of the drive. Very respectable speed for a budget drive.
Pros: I bought this hard drive because it was the largest of the budget hard drives. When I purchased it, speed was a secondary concern. Storage was my primary concern. When I pulled the old hard drive out of my laptop I discovered that it was also a Western Digital Blue hard drive from the Scropio lin...
Cons: Not the fastest hard drive available in its price range. 8 MB, very low cache for a hard drive. Only 5400 RPM.
Summary: I bought this HDD with intent of upgrading my PS3 HDD. Keep in mind you need to use a thumb drive (fat32 not ntfs) with a folder in it labeled PS3 and a folder inside that named PS3 update (download the file off the Sony ps3 site).
Summary: If your wanting to upgrade your hd for more space like I did or perhaps better performance. don't be afraid, wd seems to have you covered. But definitely read the acronis true image PDF manual.
Pros: The drive itself is really nice, performes well with no real problems to speak of. What sold me on this drive besides price was getting to use wd's acronis true image, it worked fantastically for cloning my original drive and made this hd upgrade easy and mostly risk free because my original driv...

Summary: Bought this hard drive to replace my old one that failed. Had my brother install it seeing how I am not very computer savy. It's been about a month or so and still works great. When it came in the mail it was packaged very well. And at a great price too!
Summary: HDDs are real cheap and real good these days>
Pros: I got a great egg deal on this one. I shopped a few days and it appeared. WD is all good. No worry. no troubles It is backward compatible to older machines. Panasonic picked it up right away and did the install of the OS. Like a ten year old but not older than that. I worried it would not backwar...
Cons: I really personally had no real use for it. I used it to try a test on a laptop with a mind to install it in some laptop I will sell.
Summary: Works fine. I'm using it with Windows XP. First I used Western Digital's old "Data Lifeguard Tools" program to format the drive, then I used the Western Digital Align program: AcronisAlignTool_s_e_2_0_111.exe, to realign partitions on the drive.
