5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Hard Drive

Pros: Everything, I purchased this drive in 2008, I have used it for the past 5 years as my main drive, formatted it 3 times in that period and it has worked as good as possible. I also have a seagate 500 that started making noises and I still have that locked away in some desk, but this drive is perfect. I am going to get a 2tb WD Black within the next month and ill use this one as a backup. I will never buy Seagate, WD is the way to go period.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price! Great company!

Pros: Had no issues with this and have had since Christmas 2009. Great hard drives and I wouldn't buy any other type. Except maybe the 10,000 rpm next time. But this one works great and no problems with performance.

Cons: None!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent drive

Pros: I bough this drive in 2008 and have put it through everything for the past 4 years and it still is whisper quiet, and now has win7 64 on it.

Cons: has 32MB cache, pretty fast but the 64mb is better (server quality)

Other Thoughts: worth every penny western digital is a no hesitation choice over the seagate (bought one makes noises still have it in a package somewhere)

3 out of 5 eggsWorked good for a couple years

Pros: Good while it works.

Cons: Life-I really expected this drive to last longer than 2 years. I have several other drives that have lasted much longer than this. I still have a couple 80GB lying around that still work.

Other Thoughts: I could have just gotten a defective drive

4 out of 5 eggsWorks, but hums

Pros: Large storage, no problems.

Cons: Hums in my external dock. I like the Green WD better.

Other Thoughts: Next time I would not get the Black, but the Green. It is quieter.
