Not Quite Nothing But Trouble
10 March 2013
Pros: Capacity and speed are OK for the price. The 5-year warranty is essential. But be aware that they will only RMA with a previously used drive, which may or may not have been reconditioned.
Cons: I bought three of five months ago. One of them failed after three months. I sent it back under the warranty. The replacement would not format. I sent it back and the replacement for the replacement would not format. I sent it back and the replacement for the replacement for the replacement would not format. Right now WD is offering me a WD3000FYYZ as a replacement. The problem is that all their replacement drives are previously used drives. ("Unfortunately we do not c...
Summary: THIS THING IS LOUD!!! I have it at home where it is quiet. It installed quickly but I had to buy a power cable at radio shack for $9.99, make sure you get one here for approx $3.00. Moved everything over quickly and then made it the master drive by just switching cables. It works good but like i said it is LOUD no doubt about it. My other one was silent. If i had known i would of bought a different one that was quiet. I was warned by other reviews but i didn't listen.
Summary: I have approximately 40 of these drives. We use them as archive storage for our HD footage that migrates off of our SAN. I buy them five at a time once a month or so. I haven't had one dead drive. They are quite, cool running and fast enough to edit from directly. They are also tough enough to serve as our transport drives moving footage between campuses weekly until we stood up a dedicated line.
Summary: Well my drive just died like the others have posted. Mine had a black screen with my system configuration and then "3rd master hard disk error". Didn't even last a full year. Someone else was right that the price fluctuates. I got this for 95 dollars last may. Ironically this was on my pc, and here I am typing this on my iPad 2. Good grief.
Summary: Har haft denna i snart 3 månader nu och är helt nöjd. Hade problem med min Green Caviar hårddisk (WD20EADS) då jag ladda ner större saker (100mbit, t.ex. 720p-filmer), blev problem med buffringen då hårddisken inte verkat hänga med. Med denna har det dock fungerat helt felfritt. EDIT: Köptes 2011-04-09, RIP 2013-11-06. Antar att jag får en ny i och med 5årsgarantin men blev av med HD-filmer till ett värde av 1700gb. ___lite___ surt.
Summary: Den här disken vibrera mycket kraftigt och kan inte rekommenderas om man inte sätter in den i cd/dvd rom plats med stora special gummi skruvar eller liknande upphägning. Tog tillbaka den till butik men de ansåg att den låg inom ramen för vad man kan förvänta sig en black vibrerar jämfört med en blue som de hade som referens. Skall säga att den gick inte att ha i vanlig släde på en fractal xl med orginal gummi dämningen. Chassit vibrerade så en jobbig ton uppstår.
