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...

Died at 1.5 years

Kendra T., Newegg
5 May 2015
  • Summary: I know all HHDs/manufacturers have a certain number of failures. Had a Seagate die young 10 years ago. So this does not condemn WD. But it does rankle, especially when it is a medium capacity, supposedly higher-level HD like this.
  • Pros: Fast; other one I bought works fine.
  • Cons: Bought two in November 2013. One just died, May, 2015. Light use (backup).

And its dying

Nicholas B., Newegg
5 March 2015
  • Summary: This drive has been overall pretty disappointing.
  • Pros: Capacity
  • Cons: Anytime I wanted to access the drive I had to wait for it to "wake up." The data on the drive has become corrupted without warning after about a year and a half of usage.

Dead

  • Pros: It worked for a while.
  • Cons: It died, caused a crcdisk.sys error twice after re-installing windows. I went back to a 5 year old HD that worked perfectly on my system. Ridiculous.

Defective.

12 May 2014
  • Pros: None to speak of as I haven't even used it yet.
  • Cons: Was using my system with just an ssd, got around to installing the hdd, and it powers on but only makes obnoxious whirring and buzzing sounds and is not recognized by the bios or windows at all.

WD 2TB Black

Mark F., Newegg
4 May 2014
  • Pros: Hard to give this any input. Drive is DOA.
  • Cons: I know there is a certain amount of failed drives right out of the box but this is my first. I have always had good luck with WD and will continue to use them. Just let down on this purchase.

Drive is Junk

Lawrence G., Newegg
26 March 2014
  • Summary: Don't buy WD drives. IN recent years they are nothing but trouble. I've lost count of the number I've returned becauise they either were DOA or failed in service.
  • Pros: Reasonably fast.
  • Cons: I bought 3, two failed right away and were returned. One worked for less than two years and then failed. The RMA drive won't format.

WD 2TB Enterprise HD

KURT A., Newegg
25 March 2014
  • Summary: I may have been extremely lucky through my 15 years of building computers, but this is the first drive I have ever had fail to initialize when brand new and placed into service.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Until now, I always thought of Western Digital as a name of quality. Pulled this 2TB WD HD out of my new parts inventory in an effort to build a Server. Oops, the drive would not initiate.....no clicking... nothing....
