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: 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. The align tool wouldn't recognize the drive if it was in an external Hard Disk Enclosure, so I had to temporarily install it inside my desktop, then install it into the external enclosure.
Summary: Got this for my sons PS3 and it works perfectly I personally prefer Western Digital over the other drives out there for their reliability basically I have never had one fail on me unlike other name brand that have failed me within weeks (Seagate)
Summary: I give it a 4 out of 5 only because I just got it and that I haven't witnessed its longevity. I installed it finally after watching several YouTube videos on how to back up save data for ps3. It installed very easy on my fatboy ps3. Had like 620 after it formatted the drive and now I have a little bit under 500 gb left. For what I can see as of now its a great buy.
Summary: I got this to upgrade my 40GB PS3 drive. It formatted in less than 10 minutes and is quieter than my old HDD. It's even three or four times faster! I would definitly get this if you plan to upgrade.
This is an OEM drive and not supported by WD - almost certainly used

Summary: Failed less than 30 days after receipt. When I called WD to get support, I was informed that the serial number indicated that it is an OEM drive, that is it was installed in a computer at the factory. I bought it here as a bare drive, so the company selling it here is likely taking used drives from computers and selling them as new. I will be avoiding the company selling this in the future.
Summary: I have been a fan of WD for years. When I was ready for a replacement in my HP Pavilion dm4, this was a natural choice. However, the drive failed within 3 months. No luck returning it to Amazon and, so far, to WD either.
