An update to my review

Randal H., Newegg
5 April 2016
  • Summary: I originally thought WD was not going to honor their warranty. I was pretty upset, because I have been a WD customer exclusively for the last 20+ years. I got directed to a RMA manager, and he did restore my faith in WD. I am glad, because I would not own a Seagate, or other brands if they paid me.
  • Pros: Large capacity, at the time anyway. A hardy drive. Good speed.
  • Cons: They operate a little warm, but no real complaints about this drive.

Reliable non-Advanced Format drive

PAUL G., Newegg
26 October 2015
  • Pros: In certain cases or with certain cloning software versions, when cloning a non-Advanced Format HD for an older system, you may need the replacement HD to also be non-Advanced Format (i.e. physical sector size = 512 B/sector, not 1096 B/sector), even with SP1 Win7 which has been patched to recogni...
  • Cons: OEM non-Advanced Format drives can be expensive.

Bad QA... WD Digital is Coasting on Their Past Reputation

Anonymous, Newegg
22 August 2015
  • Summary: You would think they would have at least one line of quality drives which they would test before shipping. They can charge a premium.... but now they charge a premium and deliver -------. They have no decent SSD products.
  • Pros: Their past reputation for Quality
  • Cons: Bought a bad one. Paid $11 to return it. They send anotherone with bad SMART status. Speedfan test says it is bad. Western Digital's own test utility gives it a passing test.... but their own read of the smart data says 3 of the measures are bad enough to return it under warranty. I have always b...

Excellent Mule for your SSD =)

William B., Newegg
3 August 2015
  • Summary: I'll likely be getting another drive in this series for additional storage because I've enjoyed it's reliability so much.
  • Pros: Very good Performance/Capacity-to-Price ratio. Hasn't skipped a beat in my 2.5+ years of ownership with my demanding video editing workload of 100's of GB of raw video footage and heavy gaming usage (numerous 40-60GB games such as those in the Battlefield series, Titanfall, and MMORPG's). That 64...
  • Cons: Experiencing SSD's has ruined my tastes for speed, so if you're like me, you'll still want an SSD to helm your OS and a few flagship games. This drive will pick up the storage slack wonderfully though ("wonderfully" compared to lesser mechanical hard drives).

Died 2yrs 4mo

Ryan P., Newegg
2 July 2015
  • Summary: I've always been pretty happy with WD but I have a Hitachi 1tb I bought for cheap 7 years ago in the same system and it works fine to this day. Been reading a lot how WD is slipping. Time to move on I guess. Sad.
  • Pros: Was pretty quick when it worked.
  • Cons: Has always been really noisy. Died just after 2 years. Had about 1100mb loaded on there from video, music, games, family photos etc. All gone. Got pretty noisy, then slow then dead all in one day. Tried to recover what I could. No luck. :(

Update

Kendra T., Newegg
6 May 2015
  • Summary: I would suggest Newegg allow posters to edit their posts...
  • Pros: Fast. Works. Resurrected it somehow. Removed it from the enclosure and plugged it directly into my Mac Pro. Might have been the enclosure it was in. Works fine now. Disregard previous review.
  • Cons: None so far.
