Where Can I Buy It?

Western digital has come through for me

Pros:Speed, size, ease of installation

Cons:Price, maybe, if you don't get a rebate

The Bottom Line: Excellent, amazingly fast drive, even for $200, but an absolute NO brainer at $125 w/rebate.


This was a secondary drive install in my DELL XPSB733r. My DELL came with a measly 20Gig drive, so needless to say, I was running out of space. I'm an avid MP3 downloader, and needed some serious expansion to put everything. I got very lucky by finding an Outpost.com $75 rebate on this drive with a price of $200 normally.($200-75$=$125 Net). I've had the drive installed for about a month now. It has performed flawlessly and the speed is much faster than the original drive my computer came installed with. I purchased a Promise IDE controller for connecting this drive. After reinstalling my games to the new drive, I've noticed a considerable increase in load times. (And yes, it is so noticeable a decrease in load time, that it's shockingly obvious, no BS). Well, there's really not too much you can say about a hard drive. It's not one of those glamourous upgrades like a new vid card or upgraded proc, but it felt pretty nice to me to have quintupled my storage space for only $125!!!!! If you can find a similar deal anywhere, (the Outpost.com deal is expired), I highly recommend the drive. Western digital has been extremely reliable for me. Have a good one. United We Stand.
