        Works in my computer

            Best Uses

              I chose Crucial because they were able to identify this HDD as an appropriate fit for my Dell and the price was close enough to the competition -- no need to bargain shop. The drive arrived in the time frame specified.

              Cloning software was downloaded from Western Digital. For installation, I had to snag the SATA connection from one of the DVD drives as this item is "drive only" -- no cable included. It all worked surprisingly well.

                        I bought this to replace my Seagate ST31000528AS which was only 3 years old when it started to fail. I tried every type of test and stress test on the drive none detected a problem. I took a gamble and replaced the drive. All my PC horrors went away. I guess I will have to wait and see how well the WD drive fairs in comparison.
