I got the chance to grab one of these Western Digital Blue drives off Amazon for 54 dollars! I decided to use it to make long overdue upgrades to my moms computer… She never wanted to upgrade it because she was convinced that it wouldn’t be worth it, but this is one of the few times I’m glad to say she was wrong.
The computer is a solid 300% faster. The boot time was cut from 7 minutes to less than one.
The only “cons” I can see so far about this harddrive are it’s comparatively small capacity [1tb max] and the 1 minute+ spin up time of the drive.
Posted it to the wrong blog :/
Well here it is! Worked damn hard to get this done, have the cuts and video footage to prove it.
