    I bought 3 of these as storage drives for a server I built while they aren't the best choice for what I'm doing. I didn't need to worry about reliability since my data is stored on another NAS with WD Reds and offsite using a backup service. I just needed cheap storage that worked I've been running these on an Ubuntu server using docker to run Plex which is working out great. it also runs a few other VMs for development. For the price these drives are good I'm planning on buying a few more as backups or other applications. For normal users that just need to expand their storage or replace a hard drive definitely consider this these are great hard drives for desktops and normal everyday tasks I have a 1TB WD Blue in one of my desktops from when I built it ~2012 running almost 24/7 and is still working without an issue.

    It Happens

    I bought this drive at the local retailer. The original drive was DOA. The issue was consistent with someone dropping the box onto the floor and just putting the box back on the shelf. I made the mistake of grabbing the one at the front of the display. I brought it back to the store and they were very apologetic. I went a grabbed a new one from closer to the back of the display, installed it and had no issues with it since the install. Drive is solid and the service was great during the defect exchange.

    Just a different box

    I had bought another one of these with a completely different part number, but it turns out the only difference was the box it was packaged in. This one comes in a brown cardboard box, the other, a WDBH2D0020 was the exact same storage space, a WD "Blue" drive, but with a pretty blue box that you throw away anyway. Buy the cheaper one, whichever is on sale when you need it. Or whichever is available, the WDBH2D may be last year's model that was superseded by the WD20EZRZ

    I get 2-4 of these per year, same model now for the past few years and I haven't had a single problem with any of them for my back-up purposes. I haven't had a problem with any internal hard drives from Western Digital in 15+ years, I have had problems with Passports and MyBooks so I stick with the internals and an external rack.

    Significantly less than 2 TB

    The actual size of this drive was significantly less than 2 TB - it was 1.8 TB. This made it difficult to back up my Toshiba drive, which was 1.99 TB. I realize that a drive is never quite as large as it's advertised to be, but a difference of 200 GB had a significant impact on this product's usefulness to me.

    Backup drive

    This is a backup drive for my computer to store data in case the main drive crashes like my last computer did back in October. I got a hot-swap drive bay so this unit can be removed easily and stored in a safe place and only brought out when it was time to back up the main machine. It's a WD hard drive, made in Thailand. They work.

    I bought this hard drive because I needed a good amount of storage for all of my mixed media, games, movies, music, composition software, and there is still plenty of room on it as my library grows. Fast access and quiet

    Bought a docking station earlier, and have not used until this drive arrived. Formatting was a slight pain initially, mostly due to my computer, but once done, has been working well so far. Using to store videos that I have. Just hope it does not fail early.

    This drive continues to be an excellent choice, I believe this was my sixth one (same model), I use them as external hard drives for backups so they are not used very often but when plugged into my external rack they work very well and so far I haven't had any go bad.

    I've only been using it a couple of weeks and it's reliable so far. It's a decent amount of storage at a reasonable price. I almost went for the higher end black model, but I back up my data anyway and I've never had any drive fail on me yet.

    I purchased this HDD as a secondary drive to add to my desktop with an internal drive of 500GB. This drive is great for storage and now, I can finally free up space from my primary drive without the need of attempting to transfer to an external HDD.

    this is a great replacement or additional hard drive.it's fast enough for everyday use.the only bad thing isthat it does not come with a cable.if you buy it to add storage you need to purchase a cable in order for it to work.

    Just installed the drive - so far, so good. The HDD is being used by ownCloud in my home network, so it is expected to run 7x24 with very light use - I'm the only user. Let's see how long it'd last...

    You can't go wrong with Western Digital. This drive is very fast, stores a lot of information, and was very easy to install. As an IT professional I always opt for Western Digital drives over any other brand.

    I compared this blue internal hard drive with other brands before purchasing this one. I had it installed in my desktop for about a month and so far I am very satisfied with the performance.

    This drive world exactly as expected, was easy to install. Took quite awhile to format the drive initially due to the large amount of space available. Read speeds have been very quick.

    Great storage amount for the rice. Always have a pretty good track record with any WD products. Always my first choice for traditional hard drive storage.

    Bought it for extra storage in my linux machine. It's a reasonably priced drive that does what you expect. The speed is a bit slower than my original disk, but as a backup, it is OK.
