Pros
space
inexpensive
Cons
takes long time to detect during cold boot
Summary
have a few of these installed, been using them for some years and they are still working like new. bios detection under AHCI takes a long time though might be something with the boot volume

Pros
Very fast. It loaded Windows 7 in under 10 minutes. I was up and running before I could make a pot of coffee.
Cons
None
Summary
My Seagate died prematurely and needed a fast and large replacement. Western Digital is back and definitely has good products and warranty. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another and I do all my shopping from NCIX because they are fast, reliable, courteous, and very easy to deal with.

Great quality, very silent, fast.
Cons
Way too expensive
Summary
It is a really good hard drive, i think all HDD company are pushing the price right now i dont think they still suffer from the flood. It is very very solid and well build.

Pros
WD Blues are a good solid line with mid level performance
Cons
Post flooding prices still aren't amazing
Summary
Needed to upgrade my drobo, and finally decided that flooding prices had dropped enough. Got a pair of these for 90$ a pop, which isn't amazing, but was a decent price given the circumstances. Both checked out fine when I got them and are now running in my drobo. If I needed more, WD blues is where I'd look first.
4/5 only because post flood pricing still isn't as good as it used to be.

Pros
No issues for the past year and 1/2
Easy to set up
Cons
None, except the price has more than doubled since I originally bought it
Summary
Harddrive prices have really gone up since I originally bought mine, but once HD prices drop  down to less than 100 dollars, then I'd recommend you pick up this WD harddrive

Pros
Cheap (got it for $89.99)
Great performance for a non-SSD
Great brand
Cons
None so far
Summary
Have bought several WD drives and have yet to have one fail. Have actually bought 3 of these for customers and again, no issues so far.

Got this cheaper than the green drives were at the time. If you're just looking for a storage drive and the green version is cheaper, than that should be fine. If you want a little better performance, this is a great option.

Pros
Quiet, fast, lots of space and inexpensive.
Cons
Failed prior to its first birthday.
Summary
This was a lightly used drive in a backup file server that died just under one year of use. WD Smart Info claimed drive was fine, but the Diagnostics program would not run. And it did the have the "click of death" too. Have RMA pending to WD. This is the 6th WD drive I've bought, and first failure. I'll buy again, but disappointed at the short life.

Decent Price
Cons
None
Summary
Bought this as part of a budget build. Reasonable harddrive for the price. Okay performance wise, with a good capacity and hopefully good reliability.
