    5 out of 5 eggs Great Drive

    Pros: Works great. Good speed. Nothing bad to report here.

    Cons: None so far !

    Bottom Line: Would've been nice if it came in a WD box instead of just a silver static bag, but I won't deduct points for that.

    5 out of 5 eggs Its good!

    Pros: This is a small drive however I was going cheap on my first drive and getting a 3-4 TB soon! But I have no complaints at all. It was an OEM so no wires or anything but my mother board had plenty!

    Cons: None

    Bottom Line: Just like a HDD should do, work!

    5 out of 5 eggs Great hard drive!

    Pros: This hard drive has been providing reliable storage for over a year now. I have no complaints. The read and write speeds are as well as can be expected for a magnetic hard drive, especially for the price!

    Cons: None.

    5 out of 5 eggs Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive - OEM

    Pros: The hard drive works fine, like it is supposed to do. No problems at all.

    Cons: None.

    Bottom Line: The first one I ordered would not initialize. DOA.
    True to form, Newegg shipped out a second drive as a replacement and it was fine, no problems. Kudos to Newegg for having the best replacement policy of anybody.

    5 out of 5 eggs Great Hardrive

    Pros: This drive is pretty fast and is quiet. Has had no data loss or any other problems. Has worked great as a secondary HDD with an SDD as the main drive. Has everything you need in an HDD.

    Cons: None

    Bottom Line: For the price, this drive is absolutely worth it. Western Digital made another great product.
