Incredibly Poor Packaging

Jay B. Halase, Amazon
18 May 2014
  • Summary: This review is not for the WD HD I have tried all the brands out there and WD black is the best. I received this hard drive in a padded envelope. I could not believe it. All other WD drives I got from the manufacturer came in a box with 4" of foam around it.

Good enough for light server use

Stephanie Sullivan, Amazon
25 April 2014
  • Summary: I've used WD hard drives for a long time. I've used the RE3, RE4, and the new plain RE lines in my servers. Those drives have firmware that is designed for systems using hardware RAID. But that isn't necessary for lighter duty servers.

Failed in little over two years

Indio "Bookie", Amazon
31 August 2013
  • Summary: Problems started when my system would freeze randomly and at times not boot properly (this disk did not house the boot partition). Had to hard reboot my system countless times and just before failure OS stopped recognizing this as a drive.

Drive died after only a year and a half! Western Digital no longer creates quality products as it used to.

Larry, Amazon
29 January 2013
  • Summary: I have owned and used Western Digital drives for many years. I had one WD 200GB Caviar Black drive (not this one I'm writing about) that lasted nearly 10 years without one issue. It died yesterday. But, this 'brand new' 500GB SATA drive didn't even last 2 years! It died suddenly.

Great product

Brandon, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: I only buy wd hard drives so this was a easy choice for me. I love the reliability of WD drives. The use of this is a storage drive in my gaming rig. My main drive is a crucial ssd. But for all my storage I use the WD. I use 2 of these and the 3tb external drive for back up purposes.
