Charles, STRAND. 13 February 2012

This is the worst HD I have owned so far - lasted only 4 months. Also runs very noisy. Won't recommend this drive to anyone.

Riaan, South Africa. 13 August 2014

Hard drive performs very well and is faster than I expected. Great buy!

Edwin, South Africa. 23 July 2014

For the price I paid compared to what I got, this is excellent! This is about R200 cheaper than the local stores + I got free delivery.

Kagiso, South Africa. 29 July 2014

Good performance drive.

Rephan, South Africa. 1 July 2014

Good hard drive at an excellent price, it does the job perfectly and what it is needed to do as well.
No problems experienced

somila, South Africa. 3 July 2014

worth the buy

Gareth, South Africa. 1 April 2015

A great hard drive, better than my others, very happy with it. Thanks.

Raashid, South Africa. 6 February 2015

So far so good. Previously had drive locks due to bad sectors on my old drive. I did a clone over which went pretty quick. I now have a faster system and no longer have any system lock ups due to bad sectors.
Great price great performance.

Jeremy, South Africa. 16 March 2016

Good price and a decent drive. Using it for storage in a DVR system. So far so good. Same day delivery from Takealot was awesome.

Jason, South Africa. 21 October 2015

Works as advertised. Remember new drives need to be formatted in windows disk management.

My previous Seagate 1TB only lasted a disappointing 18 months (Not from Takealot) so I'm hoping WD prove a bit more reliable! I paid R749 for this drive. It came well packaged.

Lucienne, South Africa. 18 October 2016

Good product at a good price!

Nathan, South Africa. 16 May 2016


Wade, South Africa. 30 December 2016

Bilal Suliman, South Africa. 5 May 2016

Great product. Works excellent for cctv systems

Justin, South Africa. 18 April 2016

Initializing was a little complicated but otherwise works like a charm.

Janine, South Africa. 10 May 2016

No problems with this hard drive whatsoever, easy to install and configure. Just note that it doesn't come with the SATA cable.

Hannes, South Africa. 1 February 2016

My First drive lasted 1 month, due to the (read write head) being damaged due to transit, The second lasted 3 months before developing bad sectors, very poor packaging from developer. Don't end up like me having to be force to exchange it 6 times before i maybe end up with a good one, also telephonic-ally ask for better protection during transit

Ruan, South Africa. 13 February 2016

Fantastic drive, BIOS detected it easily, formatted and installed OS in 30 minutes. Note: The packaging used by the supplier was great. Previously ordered a 1 TB Seagate which came wrapped in carton... needless to say it was DOA and had to be returned.

Very happy with my purchase!

John, South Africa. 18 April 2016

Great product, super fast delivery.

Julian, South Africa. 19 October 2016

Awesome product!

Lourens, South Africa. 7 July 2016

Great product and quick delivery

Johannes, South Africa. 1 June 2016

I've had it for about 7 months now, it's a good drive. My only complaint is you can hear it clearly, especially later at night when the surrounding noise goes away.

Brad, South Africa. 31 May 2016

Its legit. It works and its cheap.

If you have run out of space on your SSD and need to back up your steam games, this is your guy.

Just make sure you have an extra Sata 3 cable.

Kingswati, South Africa. 24 September 2015

Good drive I need an 8tb now from WD.... Good product

Heinrich, South Africa. 26 July 2016

Very good drive. Fast and quiet. Very happy

Johannes, South Africa. 19 September 2016

Very good product and have not experienced any problems at the moment.

Alvin, South Africa. 26 December 2016

In terms of performance, I would consider this a sub-par drive, with average sequential read and write speeds of 157 MB/s and 156 MB/s respectively.(System Specs: Asrock Z97 Pro4; i5 4590; 8GB RAM; Galax GTX 970).
With this in mind and the "Blue" status of the Drive I would suggest using this as a (less frequently accessed) secondary drive in one's system for mass data storage.

Noise is not too bad and only noticeable if your ears are close to your PC.

The price vs performance, however was definitely worth it and I would recommend purchasing this drive only when it is on some special as newer drive models from Seagate and Western Digital would fare far better for the same full retail price.

Otherwise, an average product. (But I was already somewhat aware of that going in to the purchase)

vusi, South Africa. 5 July 2016

the best

Barend Frederik, South Africa. 11 May 2016

No issues with this purchase, works like a charm and does what its been build for... Storage galore!

Jacques, South Africa. 3 October 2016

Very happy. Will recommend.

Shaun, South Africa. 14 April 2016

Hey guys

Thanks for the awesome service!
Keep on keeping on
