8 Years of Hard Use - And Still Going Strong!

Pros: - 1TB capacity for around $100 in 2009, EXCELLENT value
- Extremely reliable - I used it as a permanent secondary drive for over 7 years. It stayed connected to the computer and powered on constantly for that time, and had many programs installed on it (including heavy use and startup programs).

Cons: - Heavy and requires external power, but that's to be expected of a 3.5" drive
- USB 2.0 connection means it's kind of slow, but again that's to be expected for a drive of its age (USB 3.0 didn't exist at the time)

Other Thoughts: - I retired it from use as a main drive recently, but I still use it for portable external storage. At this rate it will last longer than I will.

Better late than never

Pros: - Lasted 9 years without fail. Well, until it finally died.
- Extremely quiet and compact for its category.
- Great price for 1TB of storage. Well, in 2008 it was a great price.

Cons: - It didn't last 9 years.

Still going...

Pros: Still going strong...

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've moved from PC to Mac (thank G-d) and have moved my computer/electronics purchases from Newegg to Am4zon. Sorry, Newegg, you were fine back in the day, but Am4zon Prime can't be beat.

Still works after 6 years

Pros: In my experience WD drives are the best on the market for reliability. Use them internally and they still work since 2009.

Cons: Not the fastest drive but good enough for storage.

died

Pros: Looked nice, pretty quiet

Cons: Died, just outside of warranty age. Will forever be skeptical of buying WD products, even though they are a major brand.

Great way to back up your files

Pros: Great way to back up your files and keep them safe and at the same time keep your hard drive clear,

Cons: No on off switch. If it's plugged in, it will turn on with computer so you need to unplug the power.

It's a Western Digital...

Pros: Great for backups, doc files, etc., Quiet. Runs 24/7/365.
Reliable. I have 2 of these. Years later, like new.

It's a Western Digital, or as we used to call WDC years ago:
"The Western Dog". A long story....but a good one, trust me!

Cons: Cons? Hmmm...i don't know of any.

Other Thoughts: Beats "Seafoam' at every turn. ;)
