If your're in the market for a hard drive. then this is one of the best one out there you can get. I have had this hard drive over a year. It is is the most reliable hard drive I have ever owned. I have never had problems with it. Nor has it has ever died on me. It is a sata drive. It has all the storage that I need. It is the black drive, so it has a long warranty time if it ever breaks. Just remember that you have to register your drive when you buy it. This drive is very affordable. It is within a good budget if you are tight for building your new hard drive. This is a sweet drive. It's not the fastest out there. But it gets the job done. If you are in for this, I would high suggest that you also go out and get a sata cable if your motherboard did not include one. It would be a good idea to also back up your information as well with a backup drive and do this. You may never know thought, that someday it might die.
