TigerJox,, TigerDirect.com
18 February 2015
  • Summary: When I opened up this drive in the Disk Management Console in Windows 7 Pro, it showed two partitions 2.0TB something and a 700+GB partition.

Failed after 2.5 years

Chaz, Amazon

  • Summary: Worked flawlessly in a HTPC since 5/2012 working as strictly the DVR hard drive with a cable card. Failed with bad sectors in 12/2014. Ended up purchasing a red drive now. Not impressed with this product. I thought it would've lasted longer.

This is a WD GREEN drive disguised-

Ronald Friend "Ronald Friend", Amazon
2 April 2014
  • Summary: This drive did not mention that it was a green drive. I would not have purchased had I known it was a green drive. I am using this in a 16-channel DVR so reliability is worth the extra money. I don't have time to mess around with sending this back to get a non-green WD.

Good but nvidia chipset owners -it does not show 3tb unless you have this...

Salvatore J. Angelone, Amazon
22 October 2013
  • Summary: I am rewriting this review because I found a solution. So, if you are an owner of a slightly older PC (like me) from say 2006 or 7 and, you have a motherboard with the NVidia chipset you need at least version 15.58 of the driver - which as of this writing was not the one in the "latest drivers"...

Premature failure after two days

Frank, Amazon
29 September 2012
  • Summary: Unfortunately I had to return the product after two days, which meant I just managed to format and move my files, when write problems start to occur and the Western Digital disk check flagged too many errors to finish.

Formatieren will gelernt sein...

hör mal:, Amazon
24 August 2011
  • Summary: Sicher eine gute und günstige Festplatte. Da ich sie erst ein paar Tage habe, will ich zur Leistungsfähigkeit nichts sagen. Das Formatieren gestaltet sich aber ziemlich mühsam. Mein Rechner mit I7 Prozessor und Sata II ist jetzt 1 1/2 Jahre alt.
