Pros: Quiet, Solid, Reliable, Fairly Cheap and Fast

Cons: Only 500GB,

Introduction:

I like this hard drive very much. It has served me well over the past year, never missing a beat, even when I completely filled it.

Review:

I got this before the Flooding crysis, so it only cost me like 50 bucks, or maybe even less. It was just a temporary thing until I got my 1TB. It served it's job very well.

I tested how long it takes to boot up windows, from the press of the button, to get to the desktop took a mild 50 seconds, not bad for a mechanical hard drive.

Conclusion:

I think this is a perfect hard drive for those on a tight budget, not looking for much space, or someone who just want's a office computer for the daily tasks. I'd easily recommend it to friends.
