Should've Gone w/ Caviar Black 10/09/2011
3.5" Drive, Fit's my PC's drive bay, SATA, works with Sil3124 controller, recognized by Linux kernel for OpenSuse 11.4
Running OpenSuse Linux 11.4 with a Sil3124 controller and getting FSCK errors on every boot or every other boot. *sigh* Ordered this Caviar Blue on 9-10-2011 and here it is 10 - 09 - 2011. *Heavy Sigh* Gonna have to RMA this one back to Newegg. Glad it's still in the 30-days time zone. I'll never trust anything but WD's Caviar Blacks again.
Should've gone with a Caviar Black like this one: Western Digital Caviar Black WD5002AALX which is Newegg part number N82E16822136795 and has a 500 GB capacity. Specs on that one - 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s - with a 5-year warranty. Next time I go Black.
