Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard Drive When a hard drive fails in your desktop computer, panic sets in and you wonder if you will ever get back to normal. The drive was easy to install and within a couple of weeks I had managed to reinstall all the software, recover 99% of my files from the failed drive and fingers crossed won't see another failure for a couple of years or more. Backing Up your data is essential in all cases and external drives are a boon for such things. Cannot over emphasise he need to do regular backups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Hard Drive for ANY PC. I had a old hard drive that i wanted to replace since it was old and very slow. I bought this BLACK CAVIAR WD HDD and it boosted the PC by 3 times. The PC is now faster than ever!
Date published: 2017-07-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Hard Drive unformatted capacity - 500.10GB formatted capacity - 465GB(figure as expected) reasonably quiet when compared to other hdd's'. both tested after install, both in good health. file copying speeds from drive to drive have shown up to 160MB/s in win7. im happy with that speed. if you have never handled 2.5inch drives before(like me), their size and thinness is an eye opener. at 7mm thick, flexing them could break them. CARE MUST BE TAKEN WHEN HANDLING AND INSTALLING THEM. i have purchased 2 of these to replace aging 3.5inch seagates, 1 for o/s, 1 for main storage, using a custom mounting solution with akasa ak-mx010v2 brackets in an antec nsk3480 desktop pc. overall rating of average because as hdd's go, they are average, they dont set the world on fire, but they do their job. value, again average, because i needed 2.5inch drives for my custom mounting solution, these may not be the most cost effective hard drives about, but i am paying for convinience. quality good. good copying speeds, formatted capacities, both have no errors. i cannot give additional marks for longevity because only time will tell on that. i have changed my mind on overall rating because as i write this, an average rating seemed a little unfair, they are NOT outstanding, they are just a hdd, but a decent product at a decent price and when i build my new pc, i will deffo consider these again E
