5 out of 5 eggsStill going after like 13 years...

Pros: Super fast for a 2002 Ultra ATA 5 hard drive. Gets at about 18 mbps max write, 22 mbps max write. Fell out of my hands once at about 1 foot off the ground, all I had to do was perform some simple recovery to get data back.

Cons: If you don't like a loudish hard drive, you might not like this for your old computer.

Other Thoughts: This is THE MOST reliable hard drive I have EVER had in my life. I put it in a external hard drive kit for IDE and its great for backing general things up. Backing up the WHOLE 149 formatted gigabytes takes about 2 hours, so nothing insane. Even by today's standards this might be considered acceptable for gaming. I've never had ONE Western Digital product fail in my life.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Great product, goes well with my setup! Great for a cheap computer with a good amount of storage.

Cons: First one came DOA, RMA'd it back to Newegg, sent me a new one or fixed the old, but it works great now! (kind of took a while with the RMA process but it's ok because it works so good now=)

5 out of 5 eggsWD at newegg price

Pros: Very good price for a good, reliable IDE drive.

Cons: Not nearly as fast as SATA. I didnt buy 2. I had to come up with cons to post a review.

Other Thoughts: If you are keeping an aging IDE system alive with a rebuild (or replacing a dieing M*x**r; and trust me, you'll have to eventually), its really hard to go wrong with this drive for the price.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Bought 2 of these for different computers and both are working very well. They're cheap, good for installed programs and other file storage, and not that loud.

Cons: None to report thus far!

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these for my brothers' computers, and each of them has said they are thankful I was able to steer them in this direction. These would make for a great upgrade for a parent or grandparent's computer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Replacement Drive

Pros: Very Quiet Drive, Easy Format Using Data LifeGuard Tools

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: First tried to format the drive in Win XP Pro installation, it ended up only giving me 137GB of space, even being SP1. Went to WD's website and grabbed a copy of the Data LifeGuard Tools (Dos Version) and it formatted the drive with no problem. Great Drive!
