Pros
7200rpm
cheap
sata 2
Cons
unreliable
Summary
bought 3 of them for three new builds.
one of the sata port on it broke after first use. wat happened was that i plugged it in with the sata cable, and realized i routed the cables wrong on the other end. unplugged it, and the sata port broke. NCIX won't accept it, saying that i caused the problem. it still works tho...
the other two feels fine tho.
i would give 3.5 stars, but ncix dun allow that, so 4 stars it is...

Cons

Summary
Good solid drive. Reasonably quiet. I've been using it in a system that is running 24/7 and it hasn't shown any signs of wearing out yet.

Pros
-Good price for the value
-Good balance between the green and black editions
-Relatively quiet, cannot be noticed while fans are running in my haf 932 case
Cons
-Very slow compared to current SSD's
-Noticeable lag time when reading
Summary
For the price I got what I expected, I purchased two of these and they are semi quiet with medium performance for under 60 dollars. While holding 640 gigs and using little power. There is noticeable lag when opening large folders or preforming scans/searches etc..., which is expected of most 7200RPM HDDs. I haven't experienced any problems and both drives are still running after 6 months of 12 hour per day use.

Pros
Smooth running drive.
Cons
none known
Summary
I had this drive with my PC prior to doing a recent NCIX Build. When i finished my build, and received my computer i put this drive in my new build.

This drive has run great as both a storage drive and operating drive. Im am extremely happy with it.

Experience: 1 Years
Pros
-Good performance for the Blue series
-Good choice to install your OS on it
-Fairly good for Mr./Mrs. Everybody who want to watch videos, going on the net, chatting, even Office, games and other things.
Cons
-16mb of cache might be outdated nowadays
Summary
I own 2 of these WD6400AAKS, one being used in my NMT (networked Media Tank) and one being used for storage and games on my secondary computer. So far both are great, far from overheating, always around 30-40 degrees Celcius even without a fan nearby (far from being as hot as my older WD2000JS 200gb SATA drive which goes at around 50 degrees easily!)

At the time (about a year ago) i bought those two, the price was good, but now i would wait if they do a sale on them soon, as there seem to be cheaper alternatives out there while having the same build quality and speed right now, but with more cache.

If you still want to stay in the Blue series, there is the larger WD10EALS now, 1Tb, 32mb of cache (the only drive with a cache that big), and still only 2 platters of 500gb each.

If you do purchase this drive, don't forget to turn the AAM to Silent mode if it's not already set. (use a Windows freeware called "HDDScan" to do so)

Pros
High performance, very quiet.
Cons
No history, hard to say what reliabilty will be.
Summary
WD's 2 platter design using their new 320GB/platters. HD Tach measured average transfer rate reflects the high-density platters with a rate of close to 91MB/s. Exceptional...better than a Raptor. (But of course the access times don't match a Raptor's.)

Pros
- Quiet
- Good price
Cons
- Does not come with SATA cable, but it is OEM. So, understandable
Summary
Bought this for an everything drive. Has my OS and games on it. Good speed and quiet enough that I can't hear it over anything else. Very good bang for your buck. Would purchase again.
