I bought this because I was running out of space on an older 160GB WD Caviar Blue 7200RPM--I had around 12GB free space on it after using the drive for more than 4 years. I had won this drive (used) in a bid for a mere $28, shipping included; there were no bad or reallocated sectors, the drive was gently used by the previous owner. In terms of performance, this 500GB drive performs twice as well as older WD Caviars, and is super quiet, you can barely hear it (I was worried the drive was broken when I plugged it in and powered up the pc, but it works fantastically). 500GB is plenty of space for my geekish needs; I don't game much, but I do have a lot of Linux distributions multi-booted, and a storage partition of 160GB for VMs. Current;y, the old 160GB is fully dedicated to Windows 7 and the few games that I have on it.
I've had one of these drives for probably around 5 or 6 years. I decided to buy a second to use in a RAID configuration. For what new drives are selling for, these older drives don't give you the same bang for your buck, but I knew it was a reliable drive. Since I didn't need more than 500GB in this application, buying one of these was cheaper than two new drives.
