Summary: These drives are garbage. I originally purchased 2 and did NOT use them in a RAID configuration, even though they are suitable for consumer RAID setups. The drives were purchased from separate sources and came from different batches with different manufacture dates.
Summary: If I could give a no stars, I would. I did a search under 2.5 inch hard drives and this came up. I looked for the size on the listing but never saw it. I bought these to upgrade my laptop, I am very unhappy with this. These drives are absolutely worthless to me.
Summary: This drive likes to sleep a lot because of its green rating. When idle to long, it shuts down and when you go to access its files, takes a few seconds to wake and spin up and come back to life. So this makes it a good storage drive since you have all those many gigs for storage.
Summary: First-table This is not about the brand, WD hard drives have behave well in the pass time its mostly about a mistake and the company client consideration, I have ordered a $146 USD 2.5 TB hard drive and instead they send me a 300GB huh?
Summary: Overall this is a very good drive. Reasonably fast, quiet, and a very good price in terms of $ per gigabyte. My only complaint is something other potential purchasers should be aware of on THIS AND ANY OTHER DRIVE LARGER THAN 2.2TB in size.
Summary: save yourself lots of trouble do a quick search of "Western Digital Caviar Green failure" on google and click the top 5 links (or any of them for that matter). There are major issues with these drives.
Summary: I try not to review things like this right away, because hard drives can often be defective, then need to be shipped back, and then of course at that point the transaction is not really complete.. Well, this worked out great from the start and I've had no problems.
Summary: This drive is solidly built, with a huge capacity (2.5 TB)! Western Digital has a reputation of quality, so I'm happy to be able to find an affordable high capacity WD drive. I paired mine with a McCalley USB drive enclosure Macally G-S350SU Hi-Speed eSata/USB2.0 External Storage Enclosure for...
Summary: After reading the horror stories of customers getting bad DOA Western Digital drives lately (and Amazon even pulling the 3 TB drive out of inventory while they "investigate"), I was a bit hesitant.
