  • Summary: I bought 4 of these to replace 4 500 GB drives. However, one of them was dead on arrival. I went through Western Digital's site for Advance Replacement, but got a call from a rep saying they are experiencing a shortage of these drives and they would not be able to replace it for a couple weeks. It looks like these drives increased about $120 from when I bought them just 3 weeks ago.

Owned 6, 3 failed.

  • Summary: Over the last 5 or so years I've went through 6 drives. 3 were replaced under warranty. WD sent out fast warranty replacments. In this respect they were excellent. However they send out "refurbed drives" under warranty claims. I have found some of these refurbed drives to have faults that obviously WD did not find themselves. Upon returning the refurbed drive i was sent a brand new warranty replacement.

Amazing drives, Amazon - ingly poor packing.

  • Summary: Purchased two of these drives to go along 2 others that I have. Have to say the drives are nothing short of outstanding. Hand on heart I can honestly say the 2 that I currently have run on a P8P67 Pro on 6GBs sata ports in Raid 0 and they give my 2 x M4 SSD`s a run for their money, these drives really are that good! However, the poor stars is down to the p**s-poor packing amazon use on these delicate items.

Not worth paying extra for

  • Summary: I spent many many hours trying to get this drive to work with Intel RST - but couldnt. (Possibly not the drives fault) I also found that the drive I had was giving terrible performance figures. so I returned it.. And discovered that amazon had quietly pulled it from their shelves.. So it looks like it was a bad batch - or something.. If they had told me then at least I could have stopped banging my head against a wall. Not happy with WD quality assurance.

Laughably poor packaging

J D Lister, Amazon

  • Summary: I have no idea how good this product is, as it was so poorly packaged I sent it straight back to amazon for a refund. It arrived in a squashed looking cardboard envelope, inside which the hd was wrapped in just a layer or two of bubble wrap( and under that I assume an anti static bag). You could clearly see there was just a couple of millimetres of padding at each corner, where the packaging was stretched.
