Summary: Installed in a new build. Had not even one problem during the installation. Shipping from amazon was pretty much faster than running to the store. Ordered on tues this drive was in my new machine on Wednesday loaded up and running. I got the 1T model and it is not loud by my standards at all. I saw some people had noted that and I started looking at other drives but just kept coming back to this one. Great drive so far.
Summary: Drive has been stable. I've been using this as a storage drive for media for the past year and a half with no issues. It may be time to get a second at this point. Western Digital products have always been good to me.
Summary: The drive arrived in 1 day as requested. It was purchased as a trouble shooting aid for my desktop which had failed (BIOS indicated no drives were installed ergo no startup, system, or any other files recognized). Fitment to the desktop was perfect and installation was a breeze. Unfortunately the new HD did not solve startup problem. The drive was converted to an external drive and appears to function properly.
