5 out of 5 eggsWorking great so far

Pros: Checked out good with Crystal disk and Seagate Seatools. Only 15 hours of use according to Crystal Disk. Has a date of 8/07.

Cons: None so far. Will run for awhile and cross my fingers.

Other Thoughts: Will probably get another one as a backup drive. Currently have a 320gb drive on my home PC that is experiencing a slow death.

3 out of 5 eggsSlooow drive - but OK

Pros: Iinexpensive (cheap, but well made)
Well-known brand with decent track record
Refurb sometimes better than new - they look at them harder

Cons: Slow drive-host transfer rate: ~6MB/sec vs +10MB/sec for a modern 1TB drive, using 512 byte block size

Other Thoughts: As with any drive I get I run HDD butterfly read tests almost continuously for several days before even considering installation. This includes quite a number of power on/off (spin up/down) cycles.

Target is upgrade for fast P4 with current 40GB drive destined for multi-boot.

I wouldn't install this as a primary drive in a video/gaming system ;-)

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of time and money.

Pros: The price is what got me. I have always been a fan of WD products, and have used them extensively throughout my "information technology" career. Unfortunately the saying goes...

You get what you pay for and boy did I!

Cons: The dang thing plain DID NOT WORK. BIOS detected it, yet attempts to install an OS failed, multiple times...would not even take a basic LINUX kernel. I even tried installing Win98 just for kicks...no go.

Drive diagnostics gave different "errors" every time. A low level "nuke" did nothing...(my blood pressure rises)

Put the drive in another machine as a slave, but was unable to send files to it, unable to run scandisk, or any form of OS based diagnostics.

Windows 7 freaked out, like it was the black plague or something.

Other Thoughts: The worst part is that I ordered the drive along with a slew of other components that sat (in their respective packaging) for a few weeks before the machine it was intended to go in was put together...due to me being over seas...

When I do return and assemble the machine, discover the issue, and contact newegg... I amout of RMA window. Western Digital is as easy to contact as the freakin pope.

Happy? Naw. Crying over $30 bucks? Yes. Because the down time created by me "going cheap" cost more than a brand new terabyte with gold inlays...

I do not recommend this drive...
