Awesome drive great price. Running 2 of these in my pc they make virtually no noise and give off little heat.

3Tb's have launched from WD if interested, still unsure if you actually need the host adapter provided if you change the MBT to GUID :|

I am looking for a new drive to do a clean install of Windows 7 (retail full version) onto.
Are these drives a good idea as a boot drive or not?
Obviously a SSD would be best of all but the cost/size of them is pretty poor right now so a conventional drive is still my preferred option.
I have 2 WD green 1tb drives (1 of which is my XP boot drive) and have no prolems or complaints with them.

Cheers for the advice.

I'd probably not have windows installed on a 5900/5400RPM hard drive, applications and windows boot times will be slow. RAID0 wouldnt make sense, you'd lose 4TB of data if one drives gives way.

Get a 1.5TB i believe they're 7200RPM and around £45.

I use one of these as a boot drive for windows 7 its fine. It depends how **** you are I guess.

I have two of these and a 2tb samsung in my machine honestly I much prefer these to samsung drives they give off much less heat and noise plus I have to mirror everything on the Samsung drive due to trust issues...

umm.. well I have a mixture of drives in my server. WD and Samsung so good so far but I've taken all the barracuda ones out. They were awful in both server and main pc, lost 1TB of really important data/photos....I'll never forgive them for that known problem.

All personal experience I suppose.

This is a good price. Only £4 more than the Samsung F4 from novatech...but you can collect that which is useful...ummm...think I'll go for this one, can always go collect at RM depot if I miss the delivery (which I normally do)

Been this price or less for a while with code SPOOKY at ebuyer - still a good price though... It's currently £69.99 at ebuyer and unfortunately the SPOOKY code is no longer working.

The Samsung F4 is reportedly faster and is cheaper, still £65.99 at nova tech http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/samsung-f4-2tb-65-99-delivered-nova/797146

SSD's are alot smaller but usually people install their OS and programs on the SSD then put files on a larger mecanical drive for file storage. Best option IMO...

Back down to £69.99 again.

These drives are brilliant, give off little heat and they are very quiet. Also remember you get to use acronis drive software with wd drives for free (get from wd website)

MUch better than you get with Samsung etc. Excellent tools for wiping and cloning drives, system backup can also create sell bootings usb recovery discs.

As long as you have at least one wd drive in your machine you can use it for other drive makes as well. I just cloned one of these drives onto a samsung 2tb got backup last night didnt take long at all.
