Summary: I bought this for my PC several years ago and it's still running strong. WD drives are have great reliability and the black ones come with a great warranty. You won't be disappointing if you purchase one of these.
Summary: 1. Name, address, and phone number of the retailer 2. Date you purchased the product 3. Description of product (model number and serial number) 4. Purchase price 5. Method of payment If you purchased your product online, we require your packing slip to validate the above five requirements.
Pros: One of the two drives I purchased has lasted 4 years!
Cons: One did not, Rma process : Packing slip? Original receipt? One drive failed after a month
Summary: Bought this in 2011 during the flooding in thailand (~80% of THE WORLD'S supply of HDs come from there) for almost $200. WD Black are the best IMO, backed by manufacturers warranty. This is the only piece of technology left in my computer besides my case that is still relevant.
Pros: Quick Long life Low Failure rates Long warranty
Summary: I bought this HDD over 5 years ago to use in my HTPC. I used it 24/7 mostly as a DVR and to watch online streaming content. So every day it would save several gigabytes of data. The harddrive ran great for 4 years and 11 month.
Pros: Fast, long warranty.
Cons: Failed. Warranty department replaced it with a wrong model.
