5 out of 5 eggsBeen running strong for years

Pros: Works great
Easy to install
No frills

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: Bought this way back in 2009 originally for a pre-made box I bought as my first PC to expand its storage. Eventually the original machine had to be retired and this drive was relegated to external enclosure duty, but it still works, it doesn't give me any issues, and when I need it, its right there to hold whatever I want.

3 out of 5 eggsLike a box of never know what your gonna get.

Pros: Drive worked

Cons: Drive was a totally different model number than the one in the title. I ordered that model because it was exactly what was in my iMac...the one sent to me was a different model and does not have the built in thermister so the fan now runs all the time.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat HDD

Pros: Just a great product overall. Had since 2010, still using it today in my current system. No issues, no mechanical failures, perfect temp always. Just a quality made product and not surprising at all why its lasted all these years.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsReally great HDD

Pros: It works great and is everything that I expected from it
-7200 rpm
-1tb is a decent amount of storage

Cons: It took a few extra days to ship then the rest of my build. Took 12 days to arrive after I placed my order.

Other Thoughts: I would defiantly recommend this product to somebody. Just maybe not the seller since it took so long to ship. But if time isn't a problem then defiantly go for it :D

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic - bought one 12/2008 and one 4/2009 and both are still running as of 3/2016.

Pros: I installed Acronis Drive Monitor today so I could check the SMART statistics on all my drives.

I noticed that my internal WD1001FALS-00J7B0 has the following stats:
Power-On Hours: 57600.
Divide that by 24, and you get 2400 days, or over 6.5 years.

So that's it's been almost continuously powered since the purchase date of 4/29/2009. I've had at least 3 motherboards and two cases since then, so it's the oldest component, even older than the DVD burner.
I'm about to swap it out since it's full, but good job WD! That's why people still want these.

Other SMART stats:
Start/Stop Count 4661
Uncorrectable sectors 0
UltraDMA CRC Error Count 0
Reallocation Event Count 0

Cons: Drive is not yet self-aware. Maybe that's a pro.

Other Thoughts: Buying WD drives with long warranties has worked out for me.
Also, I read a great tip a long time ago on a Newegg review - always ship your mechanical drives FedEx even if it costs extra. Because, United Punch and Smash is much rougher on the product. I wish every Newegg 1 star DOA review included the shipping method, so we could really see if that was a contributor.

1 out of 5 eggsThey did not ship me a WD1001FALS, they shipped me a WD1003FZEX.

Pros: It's a hard drive, I guess

Cons: It's not the hard drive I needed and thought I was buying.

5 out of 5 eggsLasted five years!

Pros: Lasted five years before I started getting sector errors and had to put it to sleep...

Cons: Died after five years, but that's not really a con. I read and wrote the p155 out of it and it took it like a champ until the very end.

Other Thoughts: Rock solid for five years before it went kaput. Definitely worth the cash overall though!

2 out of 5 eggsQuick Delivery!

Pros: Was able to attach it to my computer with ease

Cons: Unfortunately the hard drive worked for two startups and then I started getting technical errors on the hard drive.

5 out of 5 eggsAlmost 5 years now

Pros: Bought this for my first build ever back in March 2011, and it has been amazing. Still works, although I have read some hard drives fail conveniently after the warranty expires. However, 5 years of not having it fail is a pretty amazing feat. Used it for games, pictures and movies. Quality stuff.

Cons: Perhaps it was just me, but my main Win7 profile really lags after roughly half of the storage is used up. I bought a separate 2TB hard drive for my games, and I'm going to format this one for bulk storage. It has proven it's longevity.

Other Thoughts: This is perfect for budget build gamers. SSDs, while improved, are just not practical for the average consumer. Save some money and buy a good HDD instead (or buy 2, one for storage, the other for OS and games), and you can use the money you saved on something else.

5 out of 5 eggs5 years later...

Pros: I bought this drive just over 5 years ago today. Absolutely bulletproof. I've since bought an SSD for my OS, but I'm still storing most of my games/large programs on this thing. Again, bulletproof.

Cons: Strange that I bought it for just under $80 5 years ago and it costs far more than that now, but that doesn't really affect me, I guess. I suppose it's still worth it if you want a drive that will last forever.

Other Thoughts: When it comes to HDDs, Western Digital is the way to go. I've had many over the years and have pretty much exclusively used them when building PCs for other people and I've never had a problem with one, ever.
