    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

    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.

    Good. But not the best.

    I bought this product with the hope that it live up to the hype, but no. It doesn't. I trust the brand mainly because of its stability since I already owned a WD internal hard drive. So its a good investment when you consider stability and longevity.

    When it comes to data transfer rate, it scores a meagre 5.9 out of 7.9 on the windows experience index. There is no SATA cable with the hard drive, so you'll have to purchase one before you can use this. Other than these cons there are no other ...

    500GB , 16MB Cache, 7200 RPM, SATA 6.0 Gbps Interface,---> All this contributes to high speed of data transfer!

    At a price of ? 3190/- it's a steal.

    Performance is very good . Moreover provides 2 yrs warranty. Not like Seagate drives which provides only 1 yr warranty. Though Seagate drives are also good in performance but as WD is providing a 2 yrs warranty it's way better and worth the value of money spent.

    Used it to assemble a new PC at home (All the parts ordered from Flipkart itself :D ).

    Running fine with Windows 8.1!!.

    Thank you Flipkart for delivering it before the promised date.

    Best drive I have ever seen !

    It have speed of 6 gbps which is really very fast and this makes your computer work more quickly. WD is one of the most trusted company in terms of hard-drives so you can purchase it without thinking of company's services.
