best in it's category...

Solid performance and reliability for everyday computing. go to WD website and download "Acronis True Image WD Edition" software.create a bootable disc through it and then create partition through that & you will get full performance.

Good Quality

This HDD is for a computer which i use as a server. I have used Baracuda and Seagate in the past. WD has gained good ratings and getting recognised. I understand that WD has good after sales support. I have received it in very well condition. After using it for 10-15 days i find it stable enough. Hope it will work as good in the future as well.
