Well, I'm posting from it now. It's fast as ever. But I am going to make a clone of my partition and just use the 500GB Samsung HDD I just ordered today and RMA this one. I'm contacting WD right now to see what the say.

I think a good fresh format would be good. I'll just install all my games to the faster hard drive when I get it back.

I can't believe I managed to bring it back to life...

I also have a dead 10k rpm raptor in my pc. I still feel WD is a good brand just not looking to get any high rpm HDD's. Raid two 7200's for speed is better, imo.

I don't know, this is my 3rd dying or dead WD. I built a PC for my parents and used a Samsung HDD and it's speedy and the PC runs very well..

Now I need to figure out how to mirror this harddrive over to the new one and I'm good to go =)

I've been looking in the archives for this. It was just discussed for some reason, lexluthar and philbar come to mind. and if I'm not mistaken they mentioned the one I use , acronics, but don't like it.
