william hissam, Amazon
10 January 2014
  • Summary: Always bought Western Digital until 2014 that has stopped. The 3 western digital hard drives I purchased in 2013 (1 to 2 tb) never made it to 2014! 3 drives fail in one year under low use is unforgivable. 2 green drives and 1 black of western digital, Grr.

  • Summary: I have two of these drives. One is still chugging along while the other failed last month. I spent a couple of weeks using TestDisk getting as much off it as possible (Windows could only see the boot or reserved section). Then I started the RMA process with WD.
  • Pros: Good price, decent warranty period
  • Cons: Not so good RMA process

  • Summary: one with i/o error and other with heads scraping platters loudly. 3TB greens I bought previously work great. Recognized in bios of 4 machines. No windows or linux 32 or 64 bit system can access either drive. Extremely disappointed and stuck with RMA and wait.
  • Pros: None, new experience with RMA?
  • Cons: Bought 2, neither work. Details below.
