Great product for the cost. If you don't have a need for 500GB of space then these are a great way to go. I set 2 of these drives up in a RAID 0 array with Windows XP installed on it/them. (Stripe sets essentially take the 2 80GB and create 1 160GB array before indexing and installing) The speed difference between these and the 1 IDE drive I had before is astronomical. I took the old IDE and devoted it specifically to the page file and removed the page file from the RAID volume the O/S is on. I didn't think the difference would be that noticable but I was blown away. For the price and size this is a great way to go.
Well, none really. If you need more space go with a larger disk
Western Digital has much history in the storage field and I have never had any issues I would blame on poor quality products. Of course you should always backup info incase something happens but they have always been robust quality products. (And RAID is SO much fun)
