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.

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

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

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

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)

Barend Frederik, South Africa. 11 May 2016
