Great drive. Quiet, fast, Does everything I would expect a hard drive to do. Fast reads, quick access, and I do a lot of read / writes with no issues.
For anyone who hasnt bought a drive, know that this one doesnt come with any SATA cables. But your MOBO should have some.
The shipping was super fast, and the package unharmed. I had to manually activate the drive through Computer Management. An easy step, you can look up how to do that and follow easy instructions. Just know that that is the reason the computer doesnt recognize it at first.
1. Arrived fast w/o a SATA cable.
2. On Win7 64bit I had to activate the drive through Computer Management. The OS did not auto detect it. This was not an issue for me but some novice users may find it frustrating.
3. Transfer speeds are decent and stable for now. The drive's temperatures are cool. Does not exceed 29C on load. Though I do have a 120MM fan blowing air right on it.
4. For the few weeks I've had it, the drive is performing well. Although WD is known to outlast Seagate in most cases, time will tell how this particular unit fares.
5. Its a good drive for storage and archiving data which you may fetch frequently. Pair it with an SSD for the OS and you're good.
This WD hard drive was easy to install and initialize for my Mac. It runs quietly and copies over files quickly. I use it to back-up my other two hard drives. I've had no issues or concerns with this product.
Install and hook up really easy. Format really fast. Used it right away. No problems.
A significant speed increase over my IDE drive. No complaints so far.
Purchased for school. It works fine at least for me.. the only issue I have is it that it gets stuck on my rack/case.
SIMPLY THE BEST COMPANY OUT THERE. SET UP WAS A BREEZE.....
Good and ease to install best bay you doing good
Buy it when it discount. It work fine and very quite
worked out of the box...no problems encountered for the moment.....like to be notified for other deals.....thaanks...bob !!!!!
The packaging doesn't really say what kind of drive is included. It is a WD Blue Drive that matches the specs on the box, so I'm satisfied. Like with most hard drives this one does NOT include a SATA cable, so keep that in mind if you don't have a spare cable lying around. 4 screws are included if you need them.
Worked out of the box.
