WD is great

first off it was a 320GB SATA II. western digital products are reliable. they perform as advertised so you dont have to worry about warranty issues like the other well known companies products. im happy with them and its the only brand of hdd i'll buy. even though they may cost a few more dollars i know im paying for better quality. i expect this drive to outlast the computer its in

Reliability

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

this hard drive might be an older SATA II 3GB model but it is a solid good working reliable Drive. I have been using the AAKS line for many years in my own computers. Western Digital is the Top reliability drive company in my opinion. and that is what you want in a Hard drive.

250 MB WD5000AAKS-OEM Hard Drive

I bought this hard drive used to replace a defective one and it seems to be working just fine. It's only 250 GB, but it meets my needs b/c i really don't deal with videos at all.
