Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATAII 16MB Cache 3.5 inch Internal Hard Drive OEM,
This review is from: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATAII 16MB Cache 3.5 inch Internal Hard Drive OEM WD5000AAKS (Personal Computers)
At 10 pence per gigabyte you can't really complain!
I have an existing Seagate drive that is beginning to make unnerving rattling sounds and so I have installed this Caviar drive and activated the backup software that comes free within the Vista control panel to do a daily update copy of all my files.
When the Seagate does finally fall of its perch I will set up a pair of 500GB drives in a Raid 1 configuration but the thought of doing this now and having to re-install all my software before I really have to is just too much!
The Caviar drive installed easily, runs quietly and, so far, "does exactly what it says on the tin." Time will tell!

If you think your old hard drives gonna fail on you anytime soon you should consider mirroring your old hard drive to the new one because correct me if I'm wrong Vista backup only copies user files and not system files so if your old drive went down for good there would be know way of getting your system back. I've heard good stuff about Acronis True Image and other Hard Drive Cloners/Mirror software. Have a look into it and sorry if you already knew this :-)
