I've got 2 of them. Great price/GB. Nothing fancy about them, just great for storage.

Can't go wrong with the WD drive. Plus you get 5 years warranty with it too.

You'd want reliability with a storage drive.

It's good just make sure you use the WDIDLE utility and disable the Intelli-Park timer.

^ Beat me to it. LOL.

Edit: Or just use wdidle3 to extend the idle parking time from the default 8 seconds to 300 (5 minutes) with "wdidle3 /s300". "wdidle3 /d" to disable completely.
