WD 3TB be careful. 12/08/2013
Lots of Storage.
Newegg and WD should of warned that this HD will not be able to be recognized by OS XP 86x and certain Motherboards if you want this HD has a bootup not regular storage..
Now I know this might work on Windows 7 x64 but it formats it in GPT because it needs Advanced Format 4096 (4K) bytes-per-sector and cannot used if using Master Boot Record or MBR. Do some Wiki research.
Should of also read some reviews and could of come to the conclusion the bigger dose not always mean better or for that matter hassle free. Grab WD 2tb and never had a problem.
This is not to say this HD is bad. I only by Western Digital and have some old 320gb HD over 10 years that still run. Also I buy OEM never used and use them until they are filled and then store them in original silver wrapper in a closed shelf, room temperature.
I needed a HD that can be used in any OS and any external enclosure without special formating or motherboard drivers or anything else. This is really Microsoft fault for putting these limitations and all I'm looking for is easy plug and play not rocket science.
