5 out of 5 eggsNearly ten years running

Pros: I bought this drive in 2006 as an upgrade from a 40gb drive. Was looking through my purchase history when I realized it's my current os drive. When I built the computer it's currently in, I had used it with the intent of buying a ssd at some point in time. This drive had been through my previous 4 builds with no issues.

Cons: Its not a ssd with blazing fast transfer speeds?

Other Thoughts: I'm amazed that this drive had lasted so long. My current, though out dated, rig consists of an Athlon x2 640 oc to 3.15, 8gb G skill sniper ddr3 1866, sapphire 5830 xtreme edition, 1tb Hitachi sata iii storage drive, and this old timer drive.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: It works. Made a backup hard drive for an arcade game.

Cons: It works. Haven't had it long enough for failure to happen.

Other Thoughts: If you're buying an old IDE hard drive, I'd use this seller again.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy Camper

Pros: Factory-fresh product in perfect operating condition, prompt shipping, well-packed, great price, free shipping

Cons: Not within walking distance of my home

Other Thoughts: Seller provided a hard-to-find product at a low price and shipped it to me for free. The nearly silent hard disk replaces one that has been howling away for years, audible from anywhere on the floor. I'll buy from them again!

They included a nice note on the inner packaging, asking me to review them. So, here you go...

1 out of 5 eggsNot a New Drive !

Pros: none this is a used drive being sold for new price.

Cons: this is a used drive pulled from another computer and sold as new . western digital warranty tracker states the drives warranty ran out in 2007 .. this drive is over 7 years old and sold as new.

Other Thoughts: with these ide drives and even sata drives you need to watch what you are being sold as companies think they can pass off used stuff as new.
