5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: It works and it's at a good price. Great for a little extra storage room. Never had any problems with it.

Cons: A little slow for an OS drive, which is what I had it for originally. Huge difference when you upgrade to an SSD.

Other Thoughts: just get it.

5 out of 5 eggsGotta love em

Pros: This drive seems to be perfectly capable in performance, it's quiet and works as I would expect a drive to.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: After about 6 months, this drive began to show signs of trouble. Occasionally, it would not be recognized on start-up. I had to reseat the SATA cable to get it back. 10 days before my warranty expired a though occurred to me, this thing is still under warranty! (Thank you NewEgg for your excellent purchase order tracking)

I went to Western Digital's website and filed for an RMA. I had a new drive in less than a week without having to even speak to anyone. Being the "Happy Clicker" type. I blasted right past the RMA return instructions (which I later found stated that I would be responsible for shipping the returned drive). When I sent in a ticket to find out the process, they went ahead and emailed me a prepaid shipping label. Absolutely $0 out of pocket and I have a brand new drive.

If the hardware quality from Western Digital doesn't impress you, then their service and support teams should. I have to admit, I've always been a fan of Western Digital, and they have never failed me.

Thank you WD!!
