5 out of 5 eggsIts good!

This review is from: Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

5 out of 5 eggsWestern Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive - OEM

This review is from: Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: The hard drive works fine, like it is supposed to do. No problems at all.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The first one I ordered would not initialize. DOA.
True to form, Newegg shipped out a second drive as a replacement and it was fine, no problems. Kudos to Newegg for having the best replacement policy of anybody.
