These are good hard drive

By nephiseer

from Durham, NC

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Large Amount Of Storage

      These hard drives are fine. Just the drive didn't work with the systems in the 2 previous reviews is not a good reason for a low rating.

      Pros

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • External Hd Maby

          I installed this HD on a HP P6230y and come to find out my motherboard can't deal with the 3 TB, looks like I'm going to have to replace it with the 2 TB. I hope Crucial will note give me a hard time.
