Dead as a Doornail
This review is from: Western Digital WD AV-GP WD5000AVDS-63U7B1 500GB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal AV Hard Drive Bare Drive
Pros: 500GB seems pretty nice, if the hard drive actually worked.
Cons: Poor stability
Other Thoughts: I bought this for a friend who needed a replacement hard drive since his old 1TB died on him. He was able to back-up most of his important files onto an external hard drive and asked me to help him out on getting a new hard drive. I agreed and bought this one. After about a month, he started to have problems with Windows and I asked him if he installed it on the HDD I bought him. He said no and I told him to re-install Windows on that hard drive. For some reason, the Windows installer wouldn't detect the hard drive. I knew it wasn't because of the SATA port was bad; it detected his SSD just fine on the same port. I even put the HDD in my computer and it wouldn't detect inside Windows itself.
