Still works after 6 years

Adrian M., Newegg

  • Pros: In my experience WD drives are the best on the market for reliability. Use them internally and they still work since 2009.
  • Cons: Not the fastest drive but good enough for storage.

  • Pros: Good size, was a good price at the time.
  • Cons: After less than 3 years of use, encountered multiple bad sectors, drive died. Lasted years less than other Western Digital drives I've had over the years which I've mostly been able to use for 5+ years.
