WD Caviar Blue is as exotic as it sounds!

Ordered the WD Caviar Blue 500GB to use it in a RAID-0 setup. These HDDs are known for their reliability and speed. It has 6GB/s SATAIII. Buy it if you have a SATA III port to make the most of it. It also supports Native Command Queuing for faster read speeds.

Converted TO WD

I usually buy SEAGATE but since their performance have gone down and even the manufacturer decreasing their warranty to just 1 year. Things are not looking good in SEAGATE's front. Seagates lose in WD gain.

Once WD gets their support going in India it will be the first choice for many more. Love this harddisk btw. Bought two of these are put in on Raid awesome speed

Nice drive!

I had bought this drive a couple of days ago and it came with bad sectors right out of the anti-static packaging!!
SMART test failed, all of WD data life diagnostics tests failed on it! So I contacted flipkart and they replaced it relatively quickly!

Kudos to them for that!
I chose WD as they have a hassle free warranty and RMA program in India. Replacement of a dead or defective drive within warranty period is a breeze!

I installed this drive to replace my 250GB OS drive which had a small OS partition! I cloned my OS drive to the WD and installed it in place of my old HDD! Works great a...

Works as expected

Needed to expand my storage. Bought this. Perfect Fit. Runs noiselessly.
And now I'm typing random words to reach the 100 character minimum requirement.

WD - The most reliable

I have been using WD Hard drives for last 7 years and I must say that there are very reliable and they don't fail as often as Seagate and other competitors.
