    Cheap platter for excess storage. I’ve got an NAS, too, so this is really just for overflow storage. It's a hard drive. It works.

    Would normally get an SSD, but I had this lying around and I was on a budget. Boot times into windows aren't too bad and the drive stays decently quiet.

    I was kinda surprised when I saw the old PC came with two of these, I have NO idea how old they are and for that, will be getting an SSD and maybe a new 1TB HDD next year. But these work good, havent had any problems.

    Trustable brand, only 450 GB usable though.

    Great reliable hard drive that hasn't broken down on me yet.

    from completed build Pentium, the eternal

    Works as expected, never gave me any problems. Seems to be running fine, without any clicks or signs of failure.

    Good hard drive. May want more storage eventually, but it is good for now.
