WD Blue best budget choice5/10/2013
quiet, good performance, budget choice for a data storage drive.
Bought 2, price was great. WD makes great drives, so not expecting any problems.
It is a hard drive. install it and it works fine.
Dropped in this drive as a replacement for a smaller, deader predecessor -- and it just worked. No funny noises, expected performance. AOK
