Still running 12/31/2018 6:51:51 PM

Pros: Used as fast C: drive. Still running after installed 1/16/2011 and used most days since. Still boots fast but I may try a new SSD.

Cons: Does get hot to the touch after heavy use.

Overall Review: Still running 01/01/2019
Wish everything ran this good and lasted.
Never did get a SSD to replace it.

Best HD I've ever used 4/11/2015 12:09:13 PM

Pros: I bought my first drive in August of 2008; It is STILL running flawlessly almost 7 years later. I bought a second and set them up in Raid-0.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Sure it's older tech, but it works amazingly well. Have to give WD credit on this drive.

Eventually I'll be switching over to PCIE SSD's. But there's an old saying, if it ain't broke don't fix it. And neither of my drives have failed me yet after 3-7 years of use. Just wanted to let people know these drives are worth it.

4.5 years and counting 1/3/2013 10:27:13 PM

Pros: This has been my primary drive for nearly 5 years and it has performed flawlessly. It's run in a crowded, hot case for much of it's run and I've formatted and reinstalled several times on multiple motherboards.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I had always wanted a 10000rpm drive since my days of browsing Micro Times in high school. It will be my last mechanical C drive and it's done it's job without any hiccups.

Solid like a rock 12/5/2012 11:40:44 AM

Pros: I've had this running in my primary desktop as my OS/game drive for over 4 years, and it's been great. It's fast and somewhat spacious.

Cons: 300Gb was a lot of space at the time, but a little constricting today when used as a game drive. Deleting old games is my workaround.

Still going after 3 years 7/8/2012 7:11:49 PM

Pros: First installed years ago in windows 7 machine. Pwr on to desktop in 35secs on fresh onstall. Old drive took a bit over a min

Cons: price/GB

Overall Review: SSD's are getting much more affordable these days. For less than what I paid for this (in 09) I can get an SSD of similar size.

Supa-Fly ! But clearly not for RAID unless... 4/20/2011 3:09:28 PM

Pros: Outstanding Performance, faster than some SSD's! The 2.5" form is great for many mounting options. Quiet!! Spinup sounds a bit like a tubrofan but quickly goes away, seeks are very subdued. Dependable! Spinning since 2008 with no failure or lost data. Two-platter design. lower seek times and less to go wrong.

Cons: Not a true 2.5" FF, unit height is a bit taller making mounting it into a silencer a bit of a challenge. Non-standard connector placement may affect some users.

Overall Review: Please, do the homework, WD makes a VelociRapter with firmware specifically tuned for RAID applications. The many failures you see are usually to do with a desktop drive collapsing from enterprise duty it was not designed for.
