Summary: So I was given a desktop that was a couple years old and missing a few bits n pieces. Decided to rebuild it for the kids. Ordered this HDD for what seemed like a great price. Doesn't work. A complete brick. Worse, since it has no rubber anti skid feet, I can't even use it as a paperweight. Maybe I'll turn it into a clock. The seller offered to let me return it and refund my money.
Summary: I almost bought 4 for a NAS setup thinking it was 1TB for a great price. Turns out to be only 80GB drives when I went to check whether it is on my NAS drive compatibility list. Amazon needs to correct the title.
Summary: The HDD does not look like its new, though the price is right. Worked well so far. Facing boot problem - the DELL Dimension C521 BIOS fails to read the MBR and I get an error: "NO BOOT DEVICE DETECTED, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS F1 TO CONTINUE OR PRESS F2 TO SETUP MENU". As a workaround I Have to boot PLOP from CD and then boot from Win XP partition on the HDD.
Summary: I needed a good and fast boot drive for a client. I found this on other websites, but Amazon had a better price. I installed the OS on my client's PC and this little gem is doing the job nicely. I highly recommend WD to everyone. I have been using their drives for over 25 years.
