Pros: I went to Dairy Queen when I returned it to *Burp* Buy.
Cons: The first WD drive I ever used that refused to format. Low level, drive manager, two machines internally, one eSATA external, one USB external.
Other Thoughts: I've been building since the mid-90's, using predominately WD. These new "Green" drives are a mystery. They're marketed as Advanced Format Drives (AFD) on the WD site, but they're not AFD per the WD Acronis Align tool. Juuusst a bit of a misrep there, 'eh? But I wouldn't care if the dam thing formatted. WD support page says "try a quick format." Heh..sure. It "quick formats" and actually writes data, but who wants to trust it when it doesn't complete a full format?
Especially with that generous 2 year warranty giving
'ya buckets of confidence. (Bought mine in April '12, it was manufactured in October '12) I'll pass on this one.
Pros: Stays connected.
One-touch button works.
Decent fit & finish, not tacky.
Cons: Runs HDD constantly, no spindown, therefore runs HDD at 135 F in room at 65 F ambient. Use a small fan across discs.
Other Thoughts: The marketplace vendor that sells/ships these isn't in a hurry to get it to you. Upwards of 2 weeks.
Price was right at $35.00 on NewEgg eBlast.
SATA only, no IDE provision - meh.
Pros: A fair deal when it was $20.00.
Cons: Cheaper the the average cheap. Power button sticks, reset button fails. No where to put a 80MM case fan in the inside front - relegated to using multiple small, noisy fans. Air intake is poor - dust not easily cleaned without taking off the front... oh, and about that... once your bays are mounted, you can't.
Other Thoughts: I've been building and servicing since the mid-90's, and one thing I've learned is that airflow is critical. If your case can't breath, the innards fry. If you want a desktop case, just get an Antec 300 and do it right.READ FULL REVIEW
