1 out of 5 eggsDefected

This review is from: WD Blue 500GB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5000AAKX

Pros: Was good when it worked.

Cons: The hard drive defected after only less than 2 months. I can't even get to the login screen with my system forcefully trying to repair it or blue screening. Thanks for wasting my money.

Other Thoughts: It worked very well when I could actually use it, but it randomly acted funky one day with slow load times, random crashes, and freezes. Then it just stopped working the next day.

This review is from: WD Blue 500GB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5000AAKX

Pros: :C

Cons: Dead on arrival.
Didn't woooork.

Other Thoughts: Didn't get around to actually installing it until a month after I got it, been running on my SSD since then. Tried to fix but by the time me and my buddy realized it was defective the return policy was done. Great, now I'm stuck with a $46 paper weight.

This review is from: WD Blue 500GB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5000AAKX

5 out of 5 eggsWestern Digital Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB

This review is from: WD Blue 500GB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5000AAKX

Pros: Several Years ago I standardized on WD for all of my Hard Drive Requirements. I have always been very pleased with WD hard Drives

Cons: One of the 3 Drives went bad 3 days after I received them. It had bad sectors. However, Newegg came to the rescue and the HD was very promptly replaced. My hat is off to Newegg. I am still very pleased with WD. Over several years, I have had only this ONE HD go bad. I will continue to purchase WD Hard Drives.

Other Thoughts: Several years ago I standardized on the BLUE series of WD Hard Drives for my builds and my personal use. I use 320GB up through 1TB drives for my 4 network computers and one server.

4 out of 5 eggsGOOD for at least 4 YRS

This review is from: WD Blue 500GB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5000AAKX

Pros: Reliable for the most part.

Cons: It lasted 4 years; and for the price that's impressive. Like many Hard drives with moving parts ; there comes a time in the life of an HDD that tomorrow will not be seen; It started by creating boot errors followed by an outage; It was truly good while it lasted

4 out of 5 eggsGreat drives for money

This review is from: WD Blue 500GB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5000AAKX

Pros: Great drives for the money, reliable...

Cons: If using in a high frequency write installation, these drives seem to fail somewhat early compared to black drives, but still a great value.
