I wanted a very small capacity system HD for our server - by default (easiest!) WHS 2011 requires a minimum 160GB (though you can tweak it).

I also wanted a brand new drive with 3 or 5-year warranty as system drive failure is a real pain. Western Digital offer 3-year on their AV drives.

However, on receipt I noticed that the manufacture date for this drive is 28th Jan. 2009 - over 4½ years before purchase. It will not register on the WD site and shows as 'Out of Limited Warranty'. The anti-static bag is still sealed but I'm not confident it's a pukka WD-sealed bag - although the drive does look new.

I note the invoice says 'On products where no direct manufacturers service exists, Digital Components Ltd will offer 12 month Return To Base warranty...' I checked the DCLstore website (which is very good!) and it reiterates this guarantee.

I had thought I'd be getting a solid 3-year guarantee so was disappointed. I'll keep the drive as it's just what I need. A notation on the Amazon listing is required for full honesty, although it does not seem like any deception was intended here. Still, until then, two stars are deducted as the standard WD 3-year guarantee was not repudiated.

Manufacture date for this drive is 2008, Drive itself worked for 4 days but very noisy against the WD Drive which I removed from the PC .

***DRIVE DIED after just 4 days its full of my data so can't even send it back***

To be honest I have found the drive a big disappointment Amazon themselves fill the order I really think they should mention you don't get a WD guarantee as the drives are so old. When I buy a so say new item shipped by amazon I expect to receive a item with a full guarantee from the maker.

Very Disappointed

Worked aboslutely perfectly, runs at fast, cool speeds and was very easy to install, no issues whatsoever. This is perfect for an everyday usage computer, however I'd recommend using one of their 1TB models if you're looking for gaming.

Completely satisfied with purchase, delivery, and use of this item. It has proved reliable and quiet in operation, and was easily installed.

The purchase was fuss-free, and delivery was speedy.

Exactly what I was after, good size for the money. I needed a larger capacity for my security cameras at home.

I am giving this two stars as when I got this and put into my pc I found it was loud and had noticeable clicking noisy.
Maybe it was just a one off faulty one or not

I bought this as I was building a new computer and does what it is meant to and it seems quiet too.
