Western Digital brings a highly regarded name brand to computer hard drive choices. The WD Caviar Edition at 80GB is small sized compared to modern standards (160GB - 2TB), however its price and reliability make this item perfect for a secondary back-up drive. Coupled with Western Digital's free software which clones your primary drive and you have a secure, inexpensive, on-hand complete total computer software backup.
Western Digital hard drives are a breeze to setup and use. All Windows/Linux based computers bio's chips automatically recognize Western Digital drives and without any fuss or worry begin to format and partition them without the usual need for special hard drive drivers that is often the case with many of the other 'name brand' hard drives.
Western Digital hard drives typically have well over 1 million hours of use before any expected hard drive failures which make other hard drive brands envious by comparison. The WD800BB series only has a 2MB write buffer but at 7200 RPM speeds this smaller buffer is rarely noticed.
I recommend this item as a Good buy for a secure, inexpensive backup of your computer files, or as a good replacement for older computer hard drives.
