Other Thoughts:

The harddrive works great, and I feel good having the 5 year warranty. However, when I bought this drive one of the primary benefits was getting that 6gb/s transfer speed so I wanted to set it up as my main drive. WD says in the product description they offer software for cloning the old drive, which seemed perfect.

The software is Acronis True Image WD Edition. This is sadly a variation of Acronis 2009, and hasn't been updated much since then. It refused to clone the drive, swearing that the job was done when nothing had changed. The boot disk it created wouldn't acknowledge that any harddrives were installed. The program wouldn't run at all in safe mode. Western Digital tells you to talk to Acronis support since it's not their software. Acronis tells you they haven't supported that version in years, buy the 2013 version for $50.

Eventually scrapped it completely and got a free cloning software online, which worked the first time and took 45 minutes.

Bottom line, the Harddrive is great, but ignore western digital's software download.
