I purchased several of these drives to use as spares for servers that had the previous generation SATA II 3.0 Gb/sec WD3200AAKS drive. Well as luck would have it, I've had some failures of those old ones and went to replace them, only this drive was not recognized by the computer. After a day of digging, turns out there is a buggy Intel SATA II controller out there in many makes and models of computers that does not properly interact with this particular drive, causing the drive to remain at the 6.0 Gb/sec interface speed and the controller at 3.0 Gb/sec; i.e. no communication possible.

The fix is to place a jumper across pins 5 and 6 which will force the drive to SATA II speeds and make it show up. Unfortunately it doesn't come with any jumpers, so hopefully you have an old computer lying around you can steal one out of.

The same article on WD's site that gave me the fix also said it was possible to perform this fix using a software program they offer called WDSpeed but they refused to give me a copy for some reason and said I had to go buy some jumpers.

This an older drive and I was worried about what I would get. I use a raid 5 network device to store backup copies of my important data.The 3rd drive in the RAID array failed, which was the same make and model of the drive I am reviewing, and I was running the RAID array in degraded mode which made me motivated to resolve the issue. The drive was pristine when I received it, perfectly packaged and delivered. It was the exact model needed. I dropped it into my RAID device and hit the rebuild function, sometime later, I was back in business. Sounds like a simple transaction, but it has been my experience that many things can go wrong with spinning disk technology. Great job.

I have use Western Digital drives for many years without problem or issue. I expected no less on this purchase and have not been disappointed. Since this was a clean drive, I was able to load Windows 7 on it without worrying about any other programs. Worked great! This size drive was chosen due to the low amount of usage expected. I'm putting together a machine for my sister who looks at the Internet but doesn't have many programs. Great buy for the price and delivery was fast and efficient as always.

Product description should say "bulk" -- that is, no cable & no jumpers & no directions. It is NOT retail packaging. Just FYI -- it's not clear from the description. As far as the disk, Western Digital makes great products. And, you can download Acronis software from their web site. As far as I can tell, that software is very good too, although it's not fully functional. The fully functional version is an extra-cost option from Acronis. The free WD version was fine for my purposes. Make sure you take the time to create an Acronis restoration CD and test it. The procedure is very well documented in the Acronis User's Manual. The time to make sure you can access & restore your backups is while your system is running fine -- not after it crashes.

Compared to Caviar Black 750 GB this one is quieter with comparable transfer rate. The burst rate is slightly slower, but the quieter head movement far surpasses the advantage of the Caviar Black in my opinion. The audible clicking of the Black is irritating. It only comes with a 2 year warranty unlike the Black's 5 years. The bottom line is if you want quiet performance then go Blue. If you want longer warranty then Black is it. Speed differences are negligible and definitely not noticeable outside of benchmarks.

This drive is very fast, and well done with a 16 MB directory. I am using it with Linux Mint and Linux Xubuntu and they are as fast as Windows if not faster. But using it with Windows 8 is also a pleasant experience. Put it in a machine that handles SATA III with USB 3 and you don't have to wait a while to get the work done. The size of the disk is not excessive, and I am in Linux Mint with 27Gigs being used. So there is plenty of room to add storage, photos.. whatever. If you have a good wipe disk program, make sure you wipe it before you use it and while that isn't really required, it is good practice.
Very good drive.
