WD Blue 500GB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5000AAKX (Personal Computers)

WD Blue 500GB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5000AAKX
1.0 out of 5 stars
I was recommended this HDD by many friends for its speed and reliability. Sadly, the drive started to get slightly slower as the year went on. I never loaded with unnecessary software and used it to most play 2-3 different games, nothing too serious. After 1 year the HDD started to have long boot times, I tried repairing it but to no avail. Now 2 years later a few months ago it bricked, it has bad sectors and the Motor started failing. Lucky I pulled off all my data.

I know how to keep HDDs healthy, I've have a laptop that's over 8 years old and another desktop that is 6 years old. I've never had problems like I had with this drive.

I would not recommend this HDD unless you plan on getting a warranty plan for at least 5 years.
