WD5000AVCS - GreenPower

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Alright had an RMA to Western Digital. They were out of stock on the 320gb. So after a month they sent me this drive.

Seems like you can only get it from Dell Online UK. Anyone heard anything about these.

They gave you a 500GB instead of 320GB? Is this drive for storage only? If so, storage size is the only important spec so keep it.

Yea if Western Digital doesn't have the drive in stock and you wait too long, they ship whatever they have. Already traded it to someone.
