      Mac Instructions Quiet Great OEM Price & Packing

      • I replaced my 2006 Mac Pro original HDD. On that Mac there’s no cables nor software required. Just plug it in. So this OEM bare drive was just what I needed. • It’s pre-formatted for PC’s. If it’s installed in a Mac it alerts you that it’s not readable. Don’t be alarmed. It has to be formatted with the Disk Utility app that came with your Mac. It can also be partitioned and made bootable in any Mac OS X. Search Apple’s site for specific instructions as this bare drive doe not come with any. • The 7200rpm drive itself is very quiet. It’s WD’s “Blue” category. WD’s web site has model comparisons to “Green” and “Black”. • It doesn’t come in a fancy retail box with cables, manual or software which constitutes this as a “bare” drive. The product photo shows the insides of the drive. But it’s completely encased in metal so don’t get confused that is why it’s called a “bare” drive. I bring that up because my friend didn’t understand the terminology. I can see the potential confusion as people are used to buying in the retail packaging. • It was shipped quickly double-boxed in a heavy-duty kraft box with the standard thick plastic holders and sealed in it’s original antistatic bag. • BB price matched a competitor, I used a Rewards Certificate from my recent MacBook Pro Retina purchase, today I saw BB went on sale so they price matched. Very happy with the deal.

      Lifespan from my experience

      I purchased this HD October of 2015 for a build for my son. He used the PC on and off for the past 2 years and he started to complain the computer was getting slow. He removed the HD a week ago (Jan 2018) and I scanned it for any viruses using OS X and Windows and nothing showed up but it was reading slowly. The Mac and PC recognized the drive but it was not accessible. So I ran the Western Digital Data Life Guard software using Windows 7 and to do a simple Quick Test it was going to take 395 hours to complete. Just that made me think there was something wrong with the drive. So I removed it and reinstalled it. I told my son that anything on it may be lost. So I erased the drive and repartioned it to one fresh partition. I ran a drive sector test and it passed after a few hours but when I opened the WD software to run a quick test it was back to over 200+ hrs to run. Also note, the drive was still not accessible after partitioning it. The warranty expired October 2017, exactly 2 years after the purchase and here I am 2 months later after the warranty expired with a bad drive. Yes, for $50 it's a great deal! but having to know the drive won't last longer than 2 years makes me wonder if it was actually worth the expense even though my son did not have much data used on it. Me personally I have the same exact drive used as a back up drive and it sits most of the time so it's not used more than 2 times a month at most. But if I need to rely on it for data storage, I'm thinking of switching to something else.....

      When talking hard drives, Western Digital makes some very nice traditional drives. Had to quick replace a failed backup drive and this was a nice price. It's 500gigs less than my previous, but It's not too noticeable since I never used the full space anyway. Easy install and computer recognized it with no problems, reads and writes as well as it should. The color coding of the drives also make it nice to figure out which you need. 'Green' drives are budget drives with slower read/write times and slower speeds to save power. This 'blue' drive is great for lower end computers or backup drives with faster speeds while the 'black' series is geared more for high end systems, almost rivaling SSDs. If you're not worried about high end performance, WD Blue series drives are the way to go.

      I ordered this on 2015/02/01 and received it 2 or 3 days after. It was really fast shipping compared to what Best Buy told me it would take. I swapped out my old hard drive with this one the same day I received it. I had no idea how slow my old hard drive was until I installed the new one. Everything was installing and running faster. I'm using this on a generic/gaming computer hybrid and I needed more space for installing games. I have multiple large games installed and ran out of space fast on my old 250 gb. I used to go with the thinking of smaller hard drives will run faster because they don't have as much space to cover. I didn't know how old that thinking was until I got this 1tb drive. I'm impressed and very happy with this hard drive so far. Western Digital has always been a great name for hard drives with me and this hard drive has only reinforced those experiences.

      I bought this hard drive after testing to be sure EaseUS Todo software (free!) could duplicate the OS system on my old XP computer/drive. Using a $5 Sata cable and a few small screws from another old computer, it installed easily. I then opened Disc Management and followed some simple instructions I'd googled on how to get my Win 10 machine to recognize the new drive. I then duplicated my hard drive onto the new WD drive and now, when I boot up, I can start and run my system on the new WD drive. A fail safe for fatal viruses or original hard drive failure which is getting more likely after the 5 years it's been spinning along.

      High Performance For a Everyday Price

      This is about the Western Digital "Blue" line 1TB 7200 RPM internal hard drive. I compared this with other hard drives online before purchasing this one. Cutting to the chase, this drive is comparable in performance with WD's "Black" high performance line, and is very quiet in operation - and for a lower price. I needed it as a secondary "D:" drive on my PC, so performance, low noise, and reliability were paramount. I considered larger capacity drives, but decided that 1TB would be sufficient for my needs - along with the slew of external drives I already use. If a 1TB drive suits your needs, then I highly recommend this one.

      Replacement drive, working as it should

      I purchased this hard drive as a replacement for a stock hard drive in a family member's HP all-in-one computer. Geek Squad worked on the computer two separate times, charging $150 total, insisting that they fixed the problem each time, but did not. They told us the stock hard drive was fine. I purchased this one because I was pretty sure the stock drive was failing, causing the problems. I installed the new hard drive, installed a fresh copy of Windows 10, and the computer hasn't given us any trouble since. We were able to get Geek Squad to refund the full $150 for their failed repairs and ended up only spending $50 to do it myself in the end.

      My first one showed up powering up but basically almost the whole drive was bad sectors. The return to store was painless and second drive was shipped to me in about a week. This drive is perfect and has worked quiet and cool since a full format then installed in the box. Best Buy is easy to work with on issues and drive has a 3 year warranty so your covered pretty well in case of a defective one and I would buy one again even with my issues with the first one. It may have been damaged in shipping or just a bad one slipped through QC. The new one has been fine and was a great deal when on sale.
