WD scores big

by Gus on 5/26/2008

I've always liked Western Digital for putting out great products. I have installed this in my Mac G5 and have absolutely no problems - about 2 months. Size is right , Price is right , performance is right , it's a beautiful world.

Excellent value but runs a bit hot.

on 8/18/2008

I installed two of these drives in a Linksys NAS-200 network storage system. They create a lot of heat in that small enclosure. So far they have run flawlessly and a small external fan seems to solve the heat problem. I would recommend these drives for most applications.
