Top customer reviews
Giving initial tests to my purchase, I was really surprised that S.M.A.R.T showed the HDDs were 2 to 3 years old although I thought I had ordered items listed "NEW." I double-checked my order and it said "NEW." I immediately contacted the seller to tell that I was not going to replace my 2-year-old existing HDDs with 3-year-old used ones. The seller agreed to refund in full.
Beware! I believe most, if not all, sub-500GB HDDs listed "NEW" in AMAZON these days are scam and they are actually used pulls from old systems.
The Western Digital 160 GB Caviar Blue SATA was highly rated so I know it is of high quality and the price Amazon had it for was way to good to pass up so I didn’t. I could probably return it as I don’t really need it but I feel very secure knowing that if I get another HD loss in the 5 minutes it takes me to swap out the hard drive I am back in business. I was given almost 10 days for delivery, it got here in 5. I love this shopping at Amazon, it is becoming my choice to get the things I need at a great price and a very short wait.
Its pretty fast, mostly because of its 7200 rpm and 8 MB Cache. Its in a Lenovo desktop w/8Gig memory and 3.12Ghz Core 2 Duo processor so it can be pushed pretty hard while rendering videos or playing back HD video.
It does not run as cool as the WD green drives I have. This one typically is running about 98* F, where the green drives run around 86*F in an identical Lenovo Desktop.
Also ran diagnostics on the SMART data right out of the box. It showed 100% perfect. No sector reallocations, no read errors, no spin up time errors. I have bought other brands that came with these errors right out of the box and were considered "good" drives.
Its a good solid drive for the price. Uses a little more power and runs a little hotter than the green drives, but the blue drives generally have a longer life span.
