    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...

    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

    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.

    Third grade hard disk

    I 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.

    first looks

    I 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.
    But, thankfully, I did not see any damages from outside.
    I havent tested the product for any bad sectors or internal damages. I'll connect to the system and give my feedback laer

    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.

    Great performance for its price if compared to its peers..

    Overall Good Performer

    WD 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.
    Besides that Its cheaper then WD black hence has a good price tag when compared on a Price Vs. Performance Graph.
