Great Drive to Update Older ComputerJan 18, 2009
By Richard La Barca I bought this drive as a last effort to get an older computer system up and running again after it's drive crashed a year ago. I was going to trash the computer but I thought it would be fun and a learning experience to see what I can do on my own with this old computer. For less than $50.00 (New!) I got this drive, installed it in a few minutes, then installed the original OS disk/drivers and was up and running in about an hour. Okay, I spent another hour getting all the updates again and A/V software but now I don't want to give up the "New" computer. It's actually faster and more responsive than the day I bought it. I think this also has to do with when re-installing the OS, none of the bloatware was included. Oh, by the way, the local computer repair shop wanted over $200.00 to install a new drive and they wanted to use their OS disks and installation which I believe would not have been as clean as my own install.
Hard drive failed after 4 monthsMar 15, 2013
By Margaret G Don't buy this product. The hard drive failed after 4 months. Warranty is only good for 3 months. The hard drive response time got very slow so I downloaded Western Digital software and tested the hard drive. The drive failed the "smart test". The drive is still limping along but is unstable and will need to be replaced ASAP. Read the fine print carefully. Some WD hard drives have a 3 month warranty, others have a 2 year warranty. Don't waste your time and money on this product.
