4 out of 5 eggsBackup drives

This review is from: Western Digital Blue WD2500AAKX 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I have a Raid-1 system in the PC that I built a few years ago. I had originally purchased 3 Hitachi drives (2 in Raid, third for backup). 2 of the 3 lasted 5 years. Decided to pick up a couple of extra drives for future replacements. These drives were installed in December of 2014 and have been running since.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsDied on me

This review is from: Western Digital Blue WD2500AAKX 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: I placed the hard drive in my computer case until I got the other parts I needed to build the PC. I finally get the parts and try to install windows and all of a sudden the drive is full of bad sectors and unusable.

5 out of 5 eggsHDD

This review is from: Western Digital Blue WD2500AAKX 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Good, stable SATA hard drive, works well.

Cons: It was OEM, so no cables, manual or mounting screws. Doesn't brew coffee or fetch the paper.

Other Thoughts: Smallish HDD by current standards but fits my needs for now, planning on adding a SSD later. Came in an anti-static bag which was in a box, don't be scared off by 'bare drive', it was clothed appropriately :-) If you don't need cables or screws, this is the way to go.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks so far

This review is from: Western Digital Blue WD2500AAKX 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I am writing this based on my past experience with WD hard drives.

I have never had a WD hard drive fail; I don't expect this to be the first.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: If I recall, I will update this review after the drive has actually been with me and in use for a while. I reformatted it twice due to faulty data already and no problems. The big test will come when it is the main OS drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget HDD

This review is from: Western Digital Blue WD2500AAKX 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: -WD quality. They never disappoint.
-Affordable.
-Great packaging. I know it seems weird to comment on that, but I've seen so many PC's and PC components get destroyed in the process of shipping, it's worth noting.

Cons: -Not as fast as my 5 year old WD Black or my Seagate 'Cuda, but I knew that going in. If you want something a little faster, go with one of those (or even an SSD) and spend a few extra bucks. This was for a budget build for grandpappy, and he wouldn't notice the difference anyway.

Other Thoughts: Great drive for the price. Impressed with WD, as usual.

This review is from: Western Digital Blue WD2500AAKX 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Doesn't work

Cons: Doesn't work, waited for this drive to build a new computer, didn't work! Clicking / whirring noise, very loud and annoying, system would not detect drive and install Windows!

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

This review is from: Western Digital Blue WD2500AAKX 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: None

Cons: Broke after 7 months of use started clicking junkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk don't buy mechanical drives for your main driver and if you can afford it don't buy for back up either all junk get small mechanical drives that way their is less movement if you want to back up information not small in size just in capacity. Better yet just get a solid state drive way better

Other Thoughts: Western digital junk
