Good storage for the value. Hooked drive up and had no troubles at all. Neweggs darn sales. I purchased this drive to make a computer system for my mother and no less than a week later newegg had, if I bear in mind correctly, a 1TB drive for 49.99. Only problem I had

It was low-cost and its pretty rapid. I use it as a secondary drive to preserve videos and photos. None thus far. I don't know why some users stated it was slow, it's really not.

Reasonably quickly, cheap, quiet, 32mb cache, sata 3Gbs, cool operating, decent capacity N/A I've had no problems with this drive in the five months I've owned it. Perfect in a mid-range computer. I appear to recall reading someplace that these drives do not operate well in a raid configuration.

It's quiet. The larger Caviar Green drives are a better worth in terms of expense per gigabyte. I installed this tough drive into a HTPC develop and it has worked effectively for that goal. I wouldn't hesitate to use these drives again in builds that prioritize silence over high overall performance.

Really quite. The drive is 500 GB, never ever thought I would fill it, but I really started to get down to the final one hundred GBs as time went on. This drive has been a actually very good drive for the time that I have owned it, and I can honestly say it has been by way of quite a bit. (my rig is almost constantly on, it is often being employed, even when I am gone, and it has been dropped a couple instances but that was my fault :P ) All round, I am pleased, but I believe that this drive is finally meeting its maker... Over the past month of my ownership, the drive has began to "fail." I am now bearing witness to the famous hangs that this drive suffers from when it is starting to die. These hangs result in the complete method to lock up entirely except for the mouse. These moments can final anywhere from 20-30 seconds all the way up to 3-5 minutes. As my computer system is stuck in 1 of these episodes, CTRL-ALT-DEL is a hopeful want. I am nonetheless utilizing this drive right now, but the hangs are just obtaining worse and worse. All scans that I have run come back as OK. There are no negative sectors, and it is seriously cool to the toucn. It is not even making any sounds.... If any of you out there are arranging on acquiring this drive, believe twice, appear at your alternatives and then choose. This is a great drive indeed, but it is not a standard everyday use drive. This is some thing to place in your computer system to have music, videos, photographs, or any other type of typical documents. This is not to have an operating technique on, or to be loaded up with games that require continuous disk reading. Be careful when obtaining your tough drives. It's not a poor drive, just don't make the same mistake I did and kill a fantastic drive that wasn't even intended to do what I continue to place it by way of.P.S. I will most likely be obtaining a WD 1TB Black Caviar to replace this and then set this peticular drive in as a backup for my information, as it nonetheless reads okay.

price, decent shipping obtaining to pay to return this at my expense, if you sell a defective product, back it up with paying to ship it back. Identified by computer system, then when formatting it with WD personal tools, it froze in the middle with an error. Could not even finish the fast test with WD's own computer software. I have yet another in a various program appears fine for now.

Does what's its supposed to do. I bought this for much more space in addition to my old really hard drive from like, ahead of 2005. It feels faster than the old a single, which it in all probability is.It is really rather, at least when it is installed proper next to my old 1. I can't hear it outside the case. Though it is 500gb, it is actually around 460gb, which is a lot of space i could use because that difference is 20% of my older tough drive.Did not come with a sata cable. Even though it is my opinion, i believe that tough drives must come with the cables, just saying. In the course of installation, i was attempting to fit it into what i believed was the bay for tough drives. It turned out it wasn't. Although the bay had the correct width, it was not for putting anything in. Right after i realized this, i hit myself a couple occasions just before jamming it in anyway. I lodged in amongst a couple inward facing metal pegs. Immediately after that, i taped the challenging drive in place. I started it up and it functions fine. I just have to not bother the computer case xD

- Fast drive (write/read speeds inside 20ms).- Super quiet, had to put my ear next to it in order to hear it.- Does what it advertises. - After 3 months of possessing Windows XP Pro on it, I started acquiring periodic pauses that would stop almost everything except the mouse and would last up to a minute. At very first I believed it was some thing else, but I learned it was the difficult drive when I was in Linux one particular time and the IOWait for the drive elevated to 100% when I attempted to study a single of my files and it didn't drop down until about a minute later (the Same time it took when booted in Windows XP).- The drive finally failed three weeks ago, with it jumping in and out of my Phoenix AwardBIOS's auto-detection system. - Wonderful drive to use for external USB.- Don't use it for longtime internal storage.- The Sensible technology works fantastic on the drive, but won't declare any sectors as negative even soon after a failed write has been carried out to a undesirable sector.

Effortless to set up, capacity, good quality and cost none I replaced an old 40Gb PATA HD with this 500GB SATA and it practically flies in comparisson with the old 1, my Pc is an old optiplex desktop but with all the upgrades like this new HD, 3Gb RAM, DVD burner and Graphics card (all of them from newegg) now it runs Windows 7 ultimate smoothly and pretty fast, maybe it is not the fastest and newest pc about but for my purposes it does an outstanding job! ! !!

Trustworthy low power applied in a slim desktop. I have three WD20EARS in a drobo none have failed. Price per GB not the greatest but it was for a family computer system and it didn't need to have 1.5 TB. Good drives excellent overall performance.

There have been No Pro's with this drive. Total piece of garbage. Initially drive died in 2 weeks. Western Digital replaced and 2nd drive died around 2-three months. They replaced that drive and sent another and it went maybe six months and that 1 died. The final replacement is nevertheless going but I have no trust in it. Any firm can have 1 drive die, but this a lot of is sad. Don't fully grasp how all of the other people can have good luck with this drive. I believe being on the fourth drive is not just my undesirable luck.

Large capacity.Low cost.Nearly silent.Runs cool. None. Replaced an old 80GB WD drive I applied for a lot of years. This 1 expense the identical, but has six times the capacity. I applied WD's Acronis software and it installed completely.Some reviews indicate it may well be a little slower, but I guess it's all relevant. Compared to what I was employing, it's more quickly, quieter, cooler, and less costly. I'm quite happy.

More quickly than the 7200RPM drive I had before in each read and create speeds.Cheap.Beastly for โ. -Really runs at 4995RPM but hey, it works greater than the Seagate I had.-Wasn't free of charge.-Should have purchased 2 (or maybe ten? :D).-Could do with double the cache but I ain't complaining. I have had this drive via a lot of systems; Optiplex GX280, custom with GAEP45-U3P and E3200, Optiplex 755, and now and Optiplex 960. Work phenomenally even following 3 years of continual usage. now serve as my video drive for films and Tv and such. As for the DOA predicament, I purchased it from Finest Get so it worked completely fine out of the box. The complete DOA predicament would be fixed if Newegg would cease promoting bare drives and package them greater (I received a laptop drive that was certainly horrible situation when I got it...) items would alter. But it would be up to them. Every thing else I have gotten off the egg is awesome even following three years.
