The Western Digital Caviar SE delivers outstanding performance with a 7200RPM spindle speed and SATA 300 MB/s interface. SUch speed gives you a cold start in only about 9 seconds. 80GB gives you room to store all manner of possible programs and applications. The hard drive has an 8MB buffer, maximizing data transfer from buffer to host at 3.0 GB/s, and from buffer to disk at 748Mbits/s. The minimal non-recoverable error rate of 1 in 1014 and start/stop cycles make this disk remarkably reliable.

Cool operation results in the highest reliability, even in intensely hot environments such as digital video recorders. That's why these, the coolest on the market, are the drives of choice for the world's leading consumer electronics and PC manufacturers. With wide compatability, exquisite performance and solid reliability, WD gives us another great offering to bring to you!

5 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: This unit was used to replace a failing hard drive of same specs in an industrial PC. Computer saw it without problems making it very easy to restore my operating system. No comments on longevity since we just purchased it, but so far 5 stars

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HDD

Pros: I bought this hard drive 10 years ago, and still works like a champ. It's been in 5 different PC's, and has not even hiccuped.

The one I bought was an IDE version.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: WD makes some darn good HDD's.

5 out of 5 eggs9+ years and still going

Cons: Can't think of any.

Other Thoughts: It keeps going and going...

5 out of 5 eggsIndestructable Workhorse

Pros: Reliable

Cons: Dated performance.

Other Thoughts: I just bought one of these used with 23,860 power on hours. It's dead quiet and works perfectly. There's a reason why Western Digital drives have higher resale value than most other brands.

5 out of 5 eggs7 Years Strong

Pros: It's been 7+ years and this hard drive is still going strong. It's ridiculous. I bought other brands which lasted a year or two, WD is the way to go.

Cons: Probably not for sale anymore.

4 out of 5 eggsStill Running at 100% Performance

Pros: Got it for free because I took it out of a computer my friend wanted to smash. I've done test on it and it's still running at top performance and minimal faults.

Cons: It's a bit small for me but I just use it as extra storage.

Other Thoughts: It came really useful when I was installing a new OS on my computer because I had only 1 main HD, and I was barely able to fit everything i needed into the 80g of space. But i was thankful I got to it in time. I'm not sure how old this HD is though. I pulled it froma a OPTIPLEX GX260
