First, wow this drive is reliable. It is over 5 years old now and has been in 3 computers and swapped out many times, and wiped many more. This drive is not fast, but gets the job done and has not had one hiccup. Good job WD, does what it is supposed to.

Found it in a cabinet. Not that fast but you can't beat free.

This actually isn't the drive that I got, but the closest I could get on Part Picker here. I got the newest one of the same model, pretty much. Anyways, a hard drive is a hard drive right? Nice slim, little drive that I wanted. It was exactly what I needed and was looking for. My only complaint was the complete lack of screws and anything useful. Probably because it was OEM. No where was it specified that it was OEM on purchase, but oh well. Not sure what the deal is, but the boot time is INSANE! I haven't actually timed it, but it can't be more than 20 seconds.

I don't dislike this hard drive, I bought it a year before I built my PC and it works fine, it's just a little slow and has half the storage you can find for the price I paid a year ago ($50).

Not as exciting as an SSD.....but hey it does the job loading Win 10 and that's just fine with me.

This was one of 4 hard drives given to me by my girlfriend's dad. It was pulled out of a laptop, but it was 500GB, which is more than plenty to hold my programs and apps. It's 5,400 ROM, which isn't ideal, but it was a free hard drive, so it's nothing too horrible.
