Backup drives

Roger S., Newegg
28 May 2015
  • Pros: I have a Raid-1 system in the PC that I built a few years ago. I had originally purchased 3 Hitachi drives (2 in Raid, third for backup). 2 of the 3 lasted 5 years. Decided to pick up a couple of extra drives for future replacements. These drives were installed in December of 2014 and have been r...

Died on me

Marcus R., Newegg
14 May 2015
  • Pros: Inexpensive
  • Cons: I placed the hard drive in my computer case until I got the other parts I needed to build the PC. I finally get the parts and try to install windows and all of a sudden the drive is full of bad sectors and unusable.

HDD

David M., Newegg
12 January 2015
  • Summary: Smallish HDD by current standards but fits my needs for now, planning on adding a SSD later. Came in an anti-static bag which was in a box, don't be scared off by 'bare drive', it was clothed appropriately :-) If you don't need cables or screws, this is the way to go.
  • Pros: Good, stable SATA hard drive, works well.
  • Cons: It was OEM, so no cables, manual or mounting screws. Doesn't brew coffee or fetch the paper.

Works so far

William H., Newegg
29 December 2014
  • Summary: If I recall, I will update this review after the drive has actually been with me and in use for a while. I reformatted it twice due to faulty data already and no problems. The big test will come when it is the main OS drive.
  • Pros: I am writing this based on my past experience with WD hard drives. I have never had a WD hard drive fail; I don't expect this to be the first.
  • Cons: None yet

Great budget HDD

Ethan V., Newegg
5 November 2014
  • Summary: Great drive for the price. Impressed with WD, as usual.
  • Pros: -WD quality. They never disappoint. -Affordable. -Great packaging. I know it seems weird to comment on that, but I've seen so many PC's and PC components get destroyed in the process of shipping, it's worth noting.
  • Cons: -Not as fast as my 5 year old WD Black or my Seagate 'Cuda, but I knew that going in. If you want something a little faster, go with one of those (or even an SSD) and spend a few extra bucks. This was for a budget build for grandpappy, and he wouldn't notice the difference anyway.

Garbage

TWC L., Newegg
9 October 2014
  • Pros: Doesn't work
  • Cons: Doesn't work, waited for this drive to build a new computer, didn't work! Clicking / whirring noise, very loud and annoying, system would not detect drive and install Windows!
