Cool - 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.
Quiet - The technology that Tom's Hardware Guide called "very fast and nearly silent" is used throughout this family of drives.

5 out of 5 eggsBought by accident

Pros: Cheap for amount of space

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I accidentally bought this during a sale thinking it was SATA. Although at first i was upset, i got over it and put it in my parents computer as it was much better than what they had. This was so cheap during the sale i was just so excited about the deal i just bought it.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It worked for almost a year.

Cons: It worked for less than a year. It has bad sectors and would no longer boot. It may work for a while, but I can no longer trust it.

1 out of 5 eggsSimply Put...

Pros: Simply Put... There are none...

Cons: Simply Put... Shame on Western Digital... Western Digital has lost control of its' quality standards so much so that it is hurting not only the Western Digital brand but also the companies/stores that sell/offer W D products... This particular product is the one of the worst if not the worst product W D has ever offered... The question for W D is why offer something sub-standard just to sell product... and did W D ever think about the negative reaction/reflection it places on companies/stores like New-egg who stress quality and rely on the manufacturer to deliver exactly that...

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

Pros: Well built hard drive gave no problems installing. Runs quiet and reliably for over 3 years and still going strong.

Cons: Doesn't get better with age.

Other Thoughts: I bought this hard disk as a replacement for one that died. Haven't had any troubles and am happy with all WD Caviar drives I've ever owned.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than buying stock

Pros: I got it for 40 some bucks a few monthes ago when 2tb where 70.

it works

Cons: Since every single hard drive maker doubled their prices at once, why would they lower them?

Other Thoughts: Come on, nobody in the world can make a hard drive but Thailand , Really, N.Plz. this reminds me of the price of gas at the dawn of electric cars
