5.0 out of 5 stars Big and very fast 8 Dec 2013
By T. D. Welsh TOP 500 REVIEWER
Product Packaging:Frustration-Free Packaging|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great System Drive 10 April 2013
By Sharkey
Product Packaging:Standard Packaging|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Western Digital Velociraptor 12 Aug 2013
Product Packaging:Standard Packaging|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars First rate buy 28 Dec 2013
By A I
Product Packaging:Standard Packaging|Verified Purchase
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.
