    Very good

    5/5 150 F3 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Western Digital 250 GB Caviar Blue SATA 3 Gb/s 7200 RPM 8 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive - WD2500AAJS (Personal Computers) It was easy to format and install Ubuntu 9.10 on this drive. It's very fast and quiet. Picasa imported 49,000 photos at top speed. It's currently storing 60 GiB with no errors.The drive was healthy with no bad sectors. It passed the extended self test. All SMART data was in the green.Packaging was a simple cardboard box, but it had folded cardboard spacers to center and hold the drive half an inch from the top and bottom, 1 inch from the sides, and 1.5 inches from the front and back. Amazon shipped it in a larger box with an air cushion. The drive had a well sealed anti static bag.I'm very happy with the product. It made a good first impression. I'm using Ubuntu's file encryption and everything still feels fast. It's working well with a first generation SATA motherboard. I didn't need to add any jumper. It appears to fly along at top system speed., November 24, 2009

    Failed 3/5 Diagnostic tests upon arrival.

    1/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Western Digital 250 GB Caviar Blue SATA 3 Gb/s 7200 RPM 8 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive - WD2500AAJS (Personal Computers) Ordered and fulfilled by go Hard Drive, unable to install operating system and couldn't figure out why. Three days later I decide to run a hardware diagnostic to make sure everything is working and since I ran it overnight selected the HDD option.. passed the SMART diagnostic, and the Imminent failure, but failed the butterfly seek, random read, and linear read tests. I was very disappointed and am going to have to scramble to get a replacement in time to finish the build for Christmas. This was the exact reason I bought new instead of refurb to ensure that this did not happen. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 13, 2016

    Quarterhorse of the computer world.

    5/5 Christiana Humanisto (United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WESTERN DIGITAL WD2500AAKX Caviar Blue 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5 internal hard drive (Electronics) WD Caviar blue is one of the most generic yet reliable internal hard disks available. It is so common, pretty much any computer that is compatible to its' specs already has all of its' bios firmware and driver software pre-installed. For me, as usual, it was simply plug and play. The smaller versions, below 1TB, are pretty much going away even though they're great as workstation and internal backup drives.

    Good, practical desktop drive

    I gave this drive to someone as a gift, and they've been using it for backups for 10 months without issue.My review is based on another unit of this drive which I bought for myself some months later. I've been using it as my primary desktop OS/programs drive since 5/29/2014, so it's about 5 months now. There have been no problems thus far. It's really quite a bargain for desktop use if 1TB is all you need.The actual capacity of this drive is 931.5GB. That's an old marketing trick which can be blamed for the pointless redefinition of all our real, long established data measurements with those silly "i" characters. I won't dwell on it any further, but 931GB is the true capacity when measured in base 2, as all data is correctly measured.This 1TB Blue drive uses a single 1TB platter spinning at 7200rpm. There are 2 heads (each side is 500GB).A single platter design is usually better for reliability than having multiple smaller platters, because... 5/5 m6502 (California, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Sorry I waited so long to get a large storage drive like this.

    Worth every cent. I had been putting off buying a much larger stroage drive. Finally got one now I can store much more for much longer, get bulk files off of my work drives etc. This drive is a storage drive, not a performace drive. I use it to store files, movies etc. For gaming, and the such, I either use my SSD or my WD BLACK hard Drive. I am glad I picked this up, I have not had a single issue with it, and it has freed me up to do more with my other drives as I no longer have to have them filled up with large files I rarely use. Below are the color codes for WD drives. I do not know how different their performance are from one to another or if it is all marketing, but here it is.BLUE = Solid performance and reliability for everyday computing.BLACK = Maximum performance for power computing.RED = Increased workloads and reliability.PURPLE = Designed for Surveillance DVR storage.GOLD = WD Gold HDD is designed for Serversand some of you mentioned... 5/5 Red - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    XBOX ONE USE? You Better Believe it.

    I had recently purchased an external hard drive case that is usb 3.0 and I used an old Seagate 1TB Barracuda I had laying around to expand my sons hard drive on his xbox one. Unfortunately the old seagate didnt stand a chance...It worked for a few weeks and then I got the dreaded TICK TICK TICK noise...hard drive platter was ruined...Not sure what happened. Anyway, I already had the 3.0 enclosure with fan so I opted to get another bare hard drive to install in there. I have always had Seagates and to be honest this is the first that has failed me. But it is indeed 8 years old. I installed the new WD in the enclosure in less than 2 minutes and plugged it in. I formatted it for xbox one and installed his games there. We played a few games and everything works like a charm. With the 6GB transfer rate I dont think its going to be an issue. Granted this is day one. I write a ton of reviews so I will be back to let you know if there is any changes in the hard drive.PRICE: For what I... 5/5 Steven Housden (Herrin, Illinois) - See all my reviews, July 3, 2015
