3+ Years and counting

Timothy M., Newegg
17 December 2015
  • Summary: Quiet I think - meaning I don't ever remember any sound annoyances I've had with it. Personally, if you could use a steadfast 1TB 7,200 RPM HD - after 3 years, 2 months so far and my own eccentricity - I'm still waiting for this hard drive to finally say "I've had enough of this *%@&!
  • Pros: I've had this silly hard drive since Oct. of 2012. To be honest, with everything I've done with it - it actually blows my mind it still works perfectly. Countless reformats, wacko dual boot formats, 3 or more different MB transfers, multiple OSs. So I guess you could say I've tested it pretty wel...
  • Cons: The reason why it's a silly drive to me is because it's a 1 TB non-SSD hard drive. A person can get a TB thumb drive nowadays, - it's a small amount of space in my opinion for this type of hard drive. (can't remember the type right now? Platter? eh...) Regardless - I've been using it for an OS dr...

Slow Boot Up But Good Reponse After Boot

Richard L., Newegg
16 August 2015
  • Pros: Frankly speaking, it feels like any other 7,200 RPM hard drive. I upgraded from a Western Digital Blue and it only feels a tiny tiny bit faster.
  • Cons: Booting up the OS on this drive is pretty slow. It's as if it's always in power saving (lower performance) mode.

Great while it lasted

Anonymous, Newegg
14 August 2015
  • Pros: Ran perfectly fine with good stable write speeds and was fairly cheap as I caught it on sale for $45
  • Cons: bout a month and a half ago I started noticing my downloads taking way longer than normal. When observing the disk activity I noticed it was started to hang up on downloads as the write speed was jumping all over the map. maybe I just got a defective one, but had to knock off 2 eggs for the short...

3.5 years isn't long enough

Brian W., Newegg
13 June 2015
  • Summary: since I didn't want the next one to only last 3.5 yrs I bought a different model.
  • Pros: Worked as supplied in my Tivo DVR
  • Cons: Started fruiting out about 3 months ago, now fails every test in the DVR, lags out. Was maybe 3.5 years old max.

Works great for Direct TV DVR HR 24-200

Steve R., Amazon
13 March 2015
  • Summary: I purchase mine from another website for about the same price. I am using it for more storage on my Directv DVR hr 24-200. Works absolutely flawlessly. I have now doubled my storage capacity. I am using an external enclosure by Roswell with a fan. I installed the hard drive in the enclosure.

Running Great So Far

Anonymous, Newegg
20 February 2015
  • Summary: These are being replaced by the WD's Purple line of hard drives. The 1TB Purple version is pretty much the same thing as this. Just has a purple label on it.
  • Pros: Bought three of these. One for three different security DVRs that needed extra storage. They are working great so far. The run cool and play video back without any issues.
  • Cons: None that I have seen so far.

User Review

Dempsey ., Newegg
26 January 2015
  • Summary: Thinking I just got a bad egg, really, but I can't give this more than two stars considering how quickly it failed, and the amount of data I had on it when it did so.
  • Pros: Pros: Read\Write speed is fantastic. Very quiet.
  • Cons: Failed within the first eight months - Several sectors went bad, disc repair cannot amend the issue, drive is complete junk at this point.

Good price point

Amy L. Burger, Amazon
19 January 2015
  • Summary: Used in an Series 2 TiVo with and adapter. Pros: works inexpensive great capacity Cons: not free? Lets face it most end users aren't going to test transfer speeds etc. It works, is reliable, and designed for the task it does.

Works in my TIVO DVR

Mr. Fix It "Mr. Fix-it", Amazon
19 January 2015
  • Summary: Works in my TIVO Series-3 DVR (after properly formatting) with some minor pauses every once in a while. Must have something to do with the larger memory buffer. Too soon to tell if it will last the usual 5 years, but the last one (older model) lasted 6 years.

Good Hard drive

Erick Linder "Quaoptic", Amazon
5 January 2015
  • Summary: Good Hard drive. Purchased to replaced the original HDD in my Samsung DVR Security System. The original was a Seagate and lasted about two years. Having a lot more faith in Western Digital Products I suspect this unit will outlast its predecessor.
