After my last hard drive dying on me after only a year, might of been my fault the amount of dust on it was unreal, i decided to get this and its great does exactly what its meant to and iv noticed a performance increase! Defenatly getting a second in the next week or two and putting this in RAID 0 :)

Great drive

I"changed my antique 80GB IDE drive with WD5001AALS and it's AWESOME. Best money spend on PC ever.
I'm currently operating AMD Athlon64 3000+ and it has improved my sys. performance significantly. All of my applications load faster and my system boots around 30% faster.

BUY WD5001AALS and you can't go wrong.

Somebody stop me

After coming to the end of its life, I decided to upgrade my 9 year old HDD as it was beginning to stutter greatly due to the ever-growing number of programs and files.

I had an unlimited budget for the restoration of a n old PC. But after realising that SATA 3.0 would open new doors I thought i would wait and get this for the time being and let the SSD tech develop fully and the price for INTEL x25-e's to drop in price.

This for me has been the single most important upgrade i have EVER done!

Installation of MS Vista Home Basic was 24minutes! (I kid you not) Computer setup was Intel Core2duo E6750, 4Gb 800Mhz DDR2 RAM on an ASUS P5K-E mobo.

I would not even hesitate and have reccommended this to atleast 10 other people who said that it is a small price to pay!

As described

It's fast and so quiet I wondered if it was powering up at all....you can't go wrong here TBH...

 
Stephen 2009-09-24

Very good

Quite simply...

It's fast, quiet, cool and reliable.

What more do you need from a HDD?

I don't need masses of storage.. this suits me fine.

5 out 5.
