Impressive Green Drive 11/30/2013
Installed this beast and works perfectly so far. I ran a benchmark on HD Tune Pro and got these transfer rates:
Minimum: 68.7 MB/s
Average: 117.6 MB/s
Maximum: 153.9 MB/s
I also have a SATA II motherboard so I don't know if it will be higher if you use SATA III. (I don't think so since this usually concerns SSDs).
It's actually faster than my old WD1001FALS.
Not really a con, but after the format, I was able to use 1.81TB of free space. This happens with pretty much all the hard drives in existence.
When I installed it, it appeared on the BIOS, but it didn't appear on my computer, so I right clicked the "Computer" tab and clicked "Manage". From there, you can access the hard drive. It'll give you an option between MBR and GPT. I just chose MBR since this drive is 2TB, you have to choose GPT if it's greater than 2TB.
