This is a great hard drive

Phillip G Rone, Amazon
21 August 2014
  • Summary: This is a great hard drive! It is loud as most of the other reviews state, but I have not had any issues or complaints other than that. Other things to consider is that it does not have the highest I/O rating. Also it does produce a lot of heat so you need to make sure that you have proper ventilation.

  • Summary: This drive has surpassed my expectations, I've had it for about 4 years now and still works, had some bad blocks in it so I bought a kingston SSD a year ago. The SSD died... the WD is still running...

Failed in 3 days. Good warranty and RMA.

Mutagenic, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This failed 3 days after heavy use of building a RAID and then creating a backup. The 2002 model version (of which I have 4) have had no issues. I did an RMA of this failed drive (2003 model version) and will be receiving the replacement shortly. I would still purchase again given the warranty and RMA support.
