5 out of 5 eggsRunning great so far...

Pros: WD, what can u say? Good price, big storage (for now that is).

Cons: None so far...never had any problems with my numerous WD HDD

Other Thoughts: Had issue when installing. XP would not detect the unit via USB (HDD in external enclosure). After tinkering for 5-10 minutes I removed the HD from the enclosure. I removed the jumper pin, duh!, re-inserted HDD . XP found the drive immediately. I then formatted the HDD and it was good to go!

2 out of 5 eggsQuestionable service

Pros: Have 8 drives just like it that work perfectly.

Cons: Returned drive to NewEgg and was told drive is no longer made and given refund. Spoke with WDC and the drive is in fact still in production and widely sold by several vendors.

Other Thoughts: Will not shop newegg again.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: In my case none.

Cons: SMART indicated an impending failure, aand it died within 3 days thereafter.

Other Thoughts: I have several computers for family members, and this is the only hard drive to fail in recent memory--after only six months of light operation. I will stay away from WD drives in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsCouldn't be happier

Pros: This drive has taken all I have thrown at it. It was the source drive for a large media project (an animation which it handled well) and I then refromatted and tranferred it from that desktop to an xbox console where it now plays games from memory and media files without a hitch. It's a good inexpensive drive that performs well.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Reformats, starts with no issues. Runs fairly quiet too.

2 out of 5 eggsPlease be careful

Pros: This product seemed fine for about two months, until it died.

Cons: It died making weird noises, I thought it was the spindown, but it wasn't, the revolutions started to drop until it came to 0.

Other Thoughts: To all budget hard drive buyers, please try to buy another hard drive, this hard drive had enough of good ratings to made me buy it, and I ignored the bad reviews, and therefore karma, my hard drive died, making weird noises at first. I got another one through RMA, but make sure to be extra careful with this hard drive if you buy it, mine was very delicate I assume.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Great price for all the storage space.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: When i tried to partition the drive using partition magic the program kept saying the drive geometry was off and that it needed to be formatted. This was not the case as I did a little research on-line and found out other people had had similier problems. The drive was fine just for some reason partition magic doesnt work with it

2 out of 5 eggsworst time to fail

Pros: Price, capacity, reputation

Cons: The drive turned out to be defective after less than 1 month ownership. However, the drive only failed after I transferred all data on to the new hard drive.

Hard drive was not packaged as new. It came in a static bag only. Maybe I paid full price for a refurbished?

Other Thoughts: I have the option of RMA through newegg or WD directly. That is good to know. I guess it's my own fault for not having everything backed up beforehand.
