      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    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.

    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

    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.
