HDD functional - not bootable with DELL C521

Maroof Choudhury, Amazon
27 August 2013
  • 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.

Nice price for a Hard Drive

Sheldon B. Brown, Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: I didn't need a great big drive to get my G5 Power Mac back up and running, this drive worked beautifully. Just needed something to get Leopard installed and play with it a little bit.

  • Summary: ok, i thought i was ordering a 2.5" drive, when i got it was a 3.5" , so rather than pay return shipping for what i got it for, i found use for it, and still running, word of advice, check the small print

Solid performer!!

Duane G. Jacobs, Amazon
16 April 2013
  • 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.

Never Used Old Drives

CJ Cotter, Amazon
15 February 2013
  • Summary: Western Digital does not make low capacity hard drives like these anymore, so, right there, that tells you how old these drives are, even though they are shipped in new OEM packaging. If something happens to your drive and IF you can still get warranty service on it, WD will send a replacement drive that has a much larger capacity. (Last year, they sent me a 500GB one to replace an 80GB notebook drive.) The warranty begins when the drive was made, not when you bought it.

Not even good as a paperweight

C.E. Martin, Amazon
6 February 2013
  • 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.
