Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WD 1TB Desktop SATA Hard Drive - OEM - Green (Personal Computers)
Received this beast yesterday. Had it up and running in my pc in no time.
Copied my previous hdd image using Acronis True Image Western Digital Edition (free from WD website - http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=608&lang=en ), which took about an hour.
Previously I had been using an old 7200 rpm 500 caviar / 16mb cache which was starting to suck especially for multitasking.
Get this drive if:
*Want to save power - runs at 3 watt rather than the conventional 6 watt.
*Moderate multitasking - 64mb cache helps with the read / write speeds
*Need it for backup / storing vast amount of files
*Need top fps for games / hardcore gamer - it runs at 5400 rpm, NOT 7200 which may impact upon performance (read / write speeds).
Quality build, just what I need - cant fault it.
