I am a system admin in charge of 70+ computers. I had previously thought that the WD1600AAJB hard drives I purchased would be good for replacing the drives in my older IBM computers, but I have found that that is not the case (see post here).
I would like to ask for suggestions for a good reliable model WD IDE hard drive I can use to replace the drives in my older IBM workstations. These workstations will be running Windows 7, 32 bit. The drives do not have to be huge performance monsters. I am not interested in the “green” line as I see there still are some problems with those. What I need is proven reliability at the above stated configuration at an affordable price (<$75 if possible). With your suggestions, please provide model numbers.
I have come to find that you can research to death a particular model hard drive, but not really know whether it is good or not. That is why I am coming to this forum where the experts in WD hard drives hang out.
Thank you very much for taking the time to give me some direction.
