[OLD] A drive I have for several years that always kept all my games - in my new rig it is still in use for casual data (games wandered to a new, 1tb HDD because of space issues). A very fast drive which only runs a little hotter than new WD blue drives.

Great response time for a HDD and has been working just fine for over 2 years. HD Sentinel still gives this drive over 1000 days of usage when total power on time is over 510 days.
Only negative this thing runs hot. My case pretty much forces passive cooling on the HDD cage as the only fan you can install is near the SSD cage. This thing will easily hit 49 C which is at the edge of my comfort zone for HDDs

The only reason I give this hard drive 5 stars is because I bought it in 2009 and it still does the job. Very reliable HDD. When I am going to buy the new HDD I will choose Western Digital just because of my experience with them.
