COOL
Cool operation results in the highest reliability, even in intensely hot environments such as digital video recorders. That's why these, the coolest on the market, are the drives of choice for the world's leading consumer electronics and PC manufacturers.
QUIET
The technology that Tom's Hardware Guide called "very fast and nearly silent" is used throughout this family of drives. Our WhisperDrive technology minimizes noise to levels near the threshold of human hearing. To cut seek noise, SoftSeek technology streamlines read/write seeking algorithms, resulting in more efficient operation

4 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: No noticeable noise diffrence from my computer.
Works like it should.
Good space, filled it up faster then i thought,but i just empty old stuff and fill it up again.

Cons: only 300gigs (not really a con)
I understood this was the price range i wanted to invest at the time and bought a decent size drive.
IDE not sata isnt really a con either as some people say,if your pc is only IDE.

Other Thoughts: Im putting 8gigs + on it a week(and removing) and its holding up great.No problems.
DEFINATE buy. Good quality

2 out of 5 eggsWhy does Western Digital continue to sell this item?

Pros: Yea, the data storage is great. Perfect for all your music/movies/game ISOs. Performs great when it's working.

Cons: Hard drive has a poor track record.

Other Thoughts: I had it for 3 months, SMART detected it was failing, RMA. Got another one and after another 3 months same thing from SMART. After this last RMA, i've had it for about 5 months and now it's becoming unstable having Read/Write delays and responding extremely slowly. At times it causes my whole computer to lag where my pc acts just fine with it removed.
It seems as though i'm not alone at all with this one.

Sorry, but Western Digital released a flopper with this one.

5 out of 5 eggs300 Gigs of lovin'

Pros: 1. 300 Gigs for whatever.

2. Works with 2 of 3 IDE to USB converters.

3. It's Western Digital

4. It will work in an XBox.

Cons: 1. It's not 400 gigs.

2. It's not a WD Raptor drive.

Other Thoughts: A nice drive, and perfect for adding to a modded XBox (as long the mod chip works)

Who can complain about having an extra 300gigs laying around?

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful HDD

Pros: I ended up ordering this as a christmas present to myself and not surprisingly, it came much earlier than I thought it would, as always. The packaging surprised me. I expected there to be a box or a manual to go with it, but it was just the anti-static plastic, then the hard drive. It didn't matter much, since I just popped the HDD into the enclosure I bought with it, and it fired right up. It runs extremely quiet, and with my aluminum enclusure, it stays cool as well. I don't expect to run into any problems with this HDD and I look forward to purchasing this one again

Cons: Nothing comes to mind
