Quiet with one Problem
Pros: I've worked with Western Digital HDDs before and never ran into much of a problem. The one I ordered worked fine and after getting the rest of the machine in line with it worked wonders. The drive was quiet, quick, and had enough storage for my OS, Games, and what not. All was wonderful till the event log.
Cons: It was probably my fault but there are bad segments on the hard disk. I was looking at Event Viewer and there those errors were. Running chkdsk shows swaths of segments being unreadable. Even with these it ran pretty well until some other error ran the machine into the ground. It may just be a fluke, oh well.
Overall Review: I would recommend purchasing this hard disk as my incident is likely a fluke. If it gets too bad I will send it back knowing that the next one I get will likely work. So, go ahead and buy!
