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.

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.

Terribly slow and crashed twice...

Andrewz t., Newegg
28 December 2014
  • Summary: Don't buy it.
  • Pros: none.
  • Cons: Maybe this is just bad one, but its really slow. My old computer which is 5 years old HD runs faster than this piece of junk. 200gb used and its already being a slug.... Crashed on me twice already.... i've had WD drives before and they were much better than this one.. not sure if its this model ...

1TB of lost data

Ronald B., Newegg
9 December 2014
  • Summary: I have a WD hard drive that has been spinning up daily for over 4 years without so much as a blip. What's up with the new WDs that they conk out so quickly?
  • Pros: Fast and quiet while it worked.
  • Cons: Died after 8 months of not everyday use. Used primarily as a B/U drive, so there was no stress involved

G. Lyons, Amazon
1 December 2014
  • Summary: Use this in a Myth-based Linux DVR. Been running for several months and it seems fast enough to record 2 programs at once while watching something else. No problems so far with any kind of data loss, crashing, or loud operation.
