2 out of 5 eggsNot up to the job long term

Pros: Very quiet in operation

Cons: Mine were Dell certified for use in a server, had 4 setup in RAID 5 with 3 operational and 1 hot spare.
First drive failed at about 2 years, hot spare took over and the failed drive was replaced by Dell....with a WD5003ABYX.
Second one failed a few days back at around 4 years. This has spooked me so replacing all 3 with the WD5003ABYZ, which are still available from Newegg.
I think this tells us a lot about the quality of these 2 particular drives.

Other Thoughts: I have stuck with WD drives my whole career (16 years now) and never been let down. If they fail, they seem to give you warning signs and data always can be recovered, but they always last way longer than the warranty period to obsolescence.

4 out of 5 eggsgets the job doneq

Pros: good standard harddrive, used this in a build using spare parts I had.
does what it is expected to

Cons: not the fastest hard drive, but its Sata 2 and a standard speed, so not really a negative since I was aware when I bought this.

4 out of 5 eggsHey it's a hard drive

Pros: Not doa. Nice performance. For the current cost of drives it is priced well.

Cons: It really isn't a huge con, but these drives are already a product of the merger between between Samsung and Seagate. They are branded as barracuda drives. I always put Samsung drives in all my builds and miss my sammys! I can only hope that these are just as solid and reliable.

Other Thoughts: Rip Samsung. I just hope these are spinpoints and not cudas!

4 out of 5 eggsDecent drive

Pros: Quiet.
MUCH Faster then my buddies IDE drive.
Decent price.
Very little vibration compared to some of the others.

Cons: None really. Had a very minor scratch on the top plate, not a deal breaker, barely visible.

Other Thoughts: my buddy's IDE drive had hit the end of the road, saw this, got for his bday. Other then not being able to find a sata cable at local retailers, including a well known national electronics retailer, (he ended up with no choice but to order a sata cable from here) he's a happy camper. He can visibly see the difference in speed from his old IDE to this sata 2. Quite satisfied!
