Great buy for 1TB internal SATA drive.12/5/2012
This is an excellent buy on an internal SATA 1TB drive. (at the time). I've used many vendors of hard drives Maxtor, Seagate, IBM, Fujitsu, Wester Digital and a few others I don't recall from a while back - that is to say Western Digital has had its faults but this drive seems to work fine. It's fast and responsive, moderately quiet and so far durable with no data loss.
