    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!

    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

    Unsatisfactory

    The Western Digital Hard Drive is an old and physically damaged one, with scratches, dents and corroded gold contacts. Also, it is not a WD Caviar Blue but a WD Green HDD. I have asked for a refund of my money.

    Very poor

    Today i received Hard disk. According to specification this product is of 02 years warranty.
    But the product i received is out of warranty already. When i contacted to flipkart customer care, they are very unresponsive. So don't buy any electronic parts from flipkart.

    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.
