Summary: I bought two of these to replace a failed drive in a Windows Home Server and to RAID my desktop system. I was surprised that they were branded as "DELL". Evidently it's not uncommon for systems integrators to have these unused as the next generation comes out so they sell the prior generation. Don't get me wrong, these were new drives and server level devices. I got really good drive at a very reasonable price.
Good product, but test it out as soon as you recieve it

Summary: So, I bought 3 of these recently for a RAID-0 in my Tyan S2915-E MoBo, and I would constantly keep getting errors in Nvidia Mediashied saying that the array was going to fail soon. Long story short, the problem was from both ends, the NVidia driver on XP X64 and one of the disks being bad. one think I'll tell right now is that You absolutely must run the WD test utility to ensure the health of the drives as soon as you recieve them to avoid any confusion.
Summary: Got two of this drives, stripped in RAID 0 for higher performances using Photoshop and Lightroom. It's blazing fast once correctly partionned (keep in mind the scratch size can become quite large when dealing with larges/many files on CS4) I recommend you read DIGGLOYD's blog ([...]) before purchasing so that you know what you'll be dealing with.

Summary: ho installato nel mio sistema 2 hd Western Digital RE3 da 750gb in Raid 0, andando così a creare un solo hd da 1,5 tera. In configurazione Raid 0 questa coppia di hd si comporta magnificamente, sempre sileziona, precisa, pronta ad attivarsi con velocità. Inoltre l'affididabilità è estrema: WD è sinonimo di garanzia. Infatti danno 5 anni di garanzia.
Pros: 5 anni di garanzia, velocità, affidabilità, silenziosità
Cons: costano qualche euro più della concorrenza ma a ragion veduta
