5 out of 5 eggsThis thing can take a beating

Pros: This thing has been out of stock for quite some time, and that is a shame, because i've been abusing one of these drives non-stop for almost 5 years, and it's still going fine.

Cons: i can't buy another? that's a con i suppose.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, a little slow

Pros: seems quiet
pretty fast for a green drive
lots of storage
32 MB cache helps speed things up

Cons: a little slow just compared to a WD black or a velociraptor
may be a little louder than some of my other drives, not positive about this though with all of the fans and other noise

Other Thoughts: love the endurance, hasn't failed once in 3.5 years

1 out of 5 eggsUsed in a DVR for CCTV

Pros: Quiet and running colder than other HDs.

Cons: It failed after 11 month. This made all security records unavailable. Since it happened while away, basically made the whole CCTV system useless.

Other Thoughts: I had to urgently buy another brand. I will return it to WD for replacement, but will never use it.

2 out of 5 eggsTrouble ahead?

Pros: Quiet as a church mouse.

Cons: Unit may be failing. In service for one month, some operational problems have surfaced. In Windows XP Pro Event Viewer, disk write errors have begun to show under System.

Other Thoughts: I have corrected such a problem with an older machine by upping RAM voltage. But in this case, I don't suspect a RAM issue. I will be ordering a replacement drive to have on hand and will contact WDC soon for a possible RMA.

5 out of 5 eggsVery quiet

Pros: This drive is really quiet; I can barely even hear it. So far I haven't had any problems. Very good cheap storage.

Cons: Obviously not the fastest drive in the world, but that's not the purpose.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, not great.

Pros: Liked the whole idea of a "green" drive with lower power consumption. Installed without any problems. Seems a little on the slow side (Windows experience of 5.9) but you get a lot of storage for the money.

Cons: Was noisy following initial installation. Moved it from a slot on the end to a slot in the middle with nothing on either side and the noise went away. Was it loose in the original mount or did the proximity to the side amplify the sound? I don't know, but either way, the problem seems to be gone.

1 out of 5 eggsquikcompacc

Pros: none

Cons: new eggs site does not have an average latency under peformance. Since I am building 3 new gaming computers it was important to have this information. The lower the average latency the faster the responce time with the drives. The westen digital drives would be ok for back up drives, but does not list this in new eggs product description....Other drives like Seagate hard drives have this information. I had to go to western digitals site to find out the average latency.

Other Thoughts: would be helpful inthe future if you could list latency information for western digital drives!!!!!

Cons: None
