My husband recommended Western Digital as he has them fitted to his computer.
I found fitting easy, but was unable to format as the drive was locked or write protected.
When my husband returned he sorted things out in the bios and used specialist software to unlock the drive.
Now it works very well being very fast and I intend replacing the other stock drives with WDV drives.
I recommend this drive to anyone seeking to upgrade their system.

I won't know about this device's reliability for a while yet - I'll update this review if anything goes wrong. Meanwhile, after a week it is giving very good service. The drive slotted right in where my old 300GB Velociraptor used to sit, and looks much the same except for having over three times as much space and being rather faster. HDTune Pro shows transfer rates close to 200MB/sec at the outside, dropping in the usual way to slightly over 100MB/sec at the inside of the disk. Access time is a snappy 7.5 msec.

My two old Velociraptors, bought in 2008, have worked fine for the intervening five years and only recently showed signs of old age. It was Speedfan that first warned me, giving one of the drives zero percent rating for fitness on the grounds of too many bad blocks. HDTune then confirmed that transfer rates had dropped off badly, and one drive actually failed the short self-test. If that happens, you must grit your teeth and replace the failing drive. Wait too long and you could lose data.

I bought this instead of a SSD, I have never been quite convinced of the reliability of the SSD's and so I reverted to the tried and tested Raptor drive. I've always had one of these as my system drive they are quick and reliable (if expensive), but you get what you pay for. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone.

Arrived promptly and nicely packaged too.

Delivered very quickly and packaged to prevent damage. Bought to replace a Seagate drive made in China which failed after 14 months of light use.
Easy to fit and set up. Has worked flawlessly since and temperature has never risen above 28C in a well ventilated Coolermaster HAF 922 Mid Tower Gaming Case. Virtually silent in operation.

Well packed, easy to install on a Mac Pro, easy to format to Mac and incredible speed. should have come with fixing screws, but Apple provide them on the cradle.

If you cannot afford the expense of an SSD drive, this is the next best thing. I have six Velociraptors as well as 2 Samsung EVO 840 SSD's so I know a lot about both. The SSD is clearly faster, but if you do not need such lightning speed the Velociraptor is a close second best.

Bought one month ago to replace an ageing Samsung spinpoint which was used as a Data drive alongside a Samsung 840SSD.
The old drive had noticeable issues with both R&W speeds when transferring Data to and from my system, for instance if I was downloading a large collection of files on my 120Mb connection from usenet then I`d have to wait almost as long for the files to be decoded on my system as it took to download them, it was an unwanted bottleneck.

I decided on this drive as it has built a great reputation over many years, even so I`ll be the first to admit that I was still rather surprised by it`s raw speed and quiet running.
Quality, as always comes at a premium though, but this is definitely worth purchasing if you require a fast mechanical drive with a fair amount storage imo.

It may not be as quick as my 840 pro but I`m a Velocirator convert & the 5yr warranty only further nails my colours to the WDV mast.

I have installed windows 8 and my Goodness it's just a Rocket on this hard Drive. Just out of BIOS and the screen is in your face, Put your code or number in and it’s there. No waiting at all. I just wonder what computers would have been like if this HDD had been around in the 1980s, when I went for a cup of tea to let the programme load up. Now I have not finished pushing the button and it’s ready to use. Thank-you Western. Great product and a really good size for people like me who want a wealth of programmes and data on C: drive, while having a backup drive in the back ground. 5 Stars.
