3 out of 5 eggsBUY WITH CAUTION

Pros: Lots of space and its a good price

Cons: Seems really unstable and has many different little problems. namely a data corruption that builds up and finally takes down the MTF file for windows. I know this because I was trying to repair windows after a failure and noticed the partion was listed as unknown and the drive had all space free.

Other Thoughts: I have the drive and the retail verson of the drive. both drives have this problem and have forced me to reinstall windows 4 times in the last 2 years. I also must note that sence your mtf dies and windows installer fails to recognize the partion you have to do a full format of your drive losing all data.

One last thought. I had someone I know buy 2 of these drives when I bought the one and they haven't had this problem so it maybe limited to a select few motherboards.

2 out of 5 eggsNot very reliable.

Pros: Cheap, relatively quiet.

Cons: Had it for about four months, and then it started to glitch and restart itself. It did this for awhile, then The File system corrupted. I managed to fix it temporarily, but It's still not very stable.

Other Thoughts: It seems that this only happens with some of the drives. I may buy another one, but I'm kind of skeptical.

5 out of 5 eggsAre you a Human Stopwatch?

Pros: Does what it's supposed to do. Reliable as always from WD. Just visit WD for their driver tools.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: How can anyone tell that this drive isn't as fast as the Raptor? B/c the packaging says so? We're talking a difference of less than 4ms people. Unless you're a human stopwatch you don't know the difference unless someone tells you. GG.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: Bought this for myself as a christmas present. My other HD was low on space. Less then a gig. Immediately after unwrapping it. I installed the HD into the computer. Very easy install. Wasnt picked up. Forgot to check BIOS. Stupid me. Was seen by Windows there after

All in all no problems here. Been using it as a drive for all my new programs and mp3's.

Cons: Should come packaged better. Thats my only gripe!
