Had a problem at first getting it online,but I called Western Digital and got step, by step, instruction's from their Tech and got it Online and it, run's great it run's a lot faster than my PATA/IDE 160 Gig Drive. I partitioned it to run Vista and Linux Ubuntu Operating System's, on the same Hardrive and Win 7 Ultimate, so far it run's without a hitch,Great Tech Service and,excellent product.....
Why I got this product: When I booted my computer, I kept getting an error that said "no bootable device found" and decided it was best to replace the hard drive and re-install the operating system. (New motherboard did not solve this problem for me) Note: this hard drive does not come with any screws or cables. Only the hard drive itself! Use the screws and cables already in your computer. 1) Opened up the side panel of my desktop PC (make sure PC is powered off and power cables unplugged - you don't want to get shocked!) 2) Unplugged all of the cables going into my old hard drive 3) Unscrewed the mounting unit (case) that contained the hard drive 4) Unscrewed the old hard drive from the mounting unit and replaced it with the NEW hard drive 5) Screwed all of the cables into the NEW hard drive 6) Closed the side panel of the PC and re-plugged the power cables into the computer 7) Booted the computer and inserted a disc of my operating system 8) Installed the operating system on the new hard drive. Done! Everything works great! Very happy with the product and the price. Hope you like it too
I'm using this for my Security system DVR. It's awesome!
This is a good option for the price, only one comment i received the HD without any of these (supplier box, instruction manual, screws and Sata cable)..Fortunately i had all those components in my home.
I was surprised by a previous comment about the lack of mounting screws. Maybe it's just my tower, but I have several plastic "clips" that mount the drives in the bays...no screws needed. Easy install and format. This is enough storage to last two lifetimes for my needs. My computer is really fast now, too, with the larger cache.
The hard drive arrived on time. I was very excited when I got it because my current hard drive is failing. When I opened the box, I found the hard drive was not in a box from the Western Digital factory. It was in a static bag with plastic supports. There was not any cables, no manual or CD in the box. I have bought hard drives in the past from Seagate that had cables, manuals, and CDs in the box sealed at the Seagate factory. I should have stuck with Seagate, but the Western Digital hard drive had more storage for the price than the Seagate ones sold on walmart.com. I tried to install the Western Digital hard drive for two days. It would not work on my Compaq Presario. The hard drive had read errors. It took 6 hours to format the hard drive to go with my operating system and it still did not work. I downloaded software from the Western Digital website, but that did not help. I will not purchase another hard drive from walmart.com. When I purchase something for my computer, I want it to be new, sealed in a box from the manufacture.
the only disappointment was that Walmart did NOT include the four screws needed to install the drive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had the 500 gb green drive as my primary drive lasted five years.When it went out I ordered this one no problems yet.
Loaded easily and fixed my hard drive problem
Many desktops now need more space because of the amount of applications running at the same time.
This 1TB should take care of all your space hungry software.
Drive came ready to go. Easy to upgrade. However, make sure you have available Sata cables in your machine or you will be making a trip to radio shack for required connector cables. Walmart doesn't carry them in most stores.
computer would not recognize the hard drive and it would not show up in my computer. After trying different jumper settings, and some angry words I remembered that the hard drive may not be formatted. after I formatted it and left off the jumpers it was easy as pie. Works well and am happy with it
Worked perfectly from second installed and very easy to program. Has more than enough memory for my security DVR unit. Walmart's fast shipping and inspection of items for correctness and no damages is appreciated.
I needed a quality HDD for a recently purchased home video security system. The Western Digital "Green" was recommended by the DVR manufacturer. Was simple to install in the DVR and works great. Great price @ $53.00 and free shipping. Too bad it took Walmart so long to ship.
I installed this drive & installed Windows 7 Ulimatye 32-Bit IS & drive failed within 1 week!!!!!!
Would not purchase another Western Digital 1TB Caviar Green SATA 6Gbps Desktop Hard Drive!!!!!
I've had this hard drive for a month and have not had drive failure, that about all i can say .
Computer does not show anywhere
WD 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive is a great value! Excellent performance. When you register it on their website it's a 2 year warranty!
Site to store rocks too! Thanks Walmart & Western Digital....
I'm a "Happy Camper" :)
