Western Digital's WD5000AAKX 500 GB Desktop Internal SATA Hard Drive is Very Good

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 WDI 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.

Third grade hard diskI purchased 2 of these and both were not recognised by BIOS. And a loud screeching sound coming from them. The replacement drives had the same problem. Don't bother to buy these as these drives sucks. However, thanks to Flipkart for the excellent customer service which sent me the replacement drives and afterwards refund for them without any delays.

Very Good product from WD.Easy to connect via the sata ports.

first looksI would begin by saying that the packging was poor. It was packed with only a sheet of cardboard. For a feeble device like this, i feel i was let down by packing.

SATA III is the way forward.With the rise of USB 3.0, Thunderbolt, eSATA, firewire 800 & Gigabit Networks,its high time that all our HDDs move to SATA III & eventually to thunderbolt over copper/fiber.

Overall Good PerformerWD Blue are tuned for higher performance so lower access times, but the WD Black has similar or a little less access times as all the other disk makers. I have chosen this HDD as a storage Drive and I am very satisfied with the access times and overall disk transfer rate that reaches around 100MBps on an average.
