  • Summary: I thought at first glance this would be a fantastic deal but I'm not going to take a chance with any 3TB HD -- because there are problems supporting more than 2.19TB. http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/reviews/pc-peripheral/3258206/western-digital-caviar-green-3tb-review/ I'll just stick to great deals on 2TB drives, easier.
  • Pros: Seems like a great dead...
  • Cons: ...but if you are running Windows be prepared for issues.

  • Summary: I tried connecting this to the Intel ICH10 controller on my mobo. BIOS shows it as a 801.6GB. Why? Don't know. I have a few other WD 2TB Green drives connected to the same controller, and they are all recognized just fine, so I expected that this one will also be seen as at least a 2TB drive. But no, it only shows as 801.6GB Will return it and get a 2TB drive instead.
  • Pros: Looks nice.
  • Cons: Didn't work for me., BIOS sees it as a 801.6GB HDD., Win Vista x64 Disk Management shows only 746GB.

  • Summary: Overall I've been very happy with this as a storage drive. Works flawlessly in a Vantec Nexstar CX USB3 enclosure. Will update  review if things change. edit: 3 month update. Drive has NUMEROUS problems, drops out of windows, MFT errors, incorrect capacity reporting.
  • Pros: Quiet, Massive storage for a decent price (post-flood pricing)
  • Cons: 2 Year Warranty, Head parks every ~8 seconds

  • Summary: Good drive size to store data, but it's better to have MB to support the drive. Didn't have a good experience, after loosing data, because of disk corruption.
  • Pros: Large disk capacity.
  • Cons: - Somehow data corruption occurred under Win7 x64 using GPT, - Older data recovery tools will not work, - Better to have MB bios to support this large drive

  • Summary: Although the print description notes that this drive has a 16mb buffer, the one I received has a 64mb new & improved one. Problem is it comes with several warnings which advise that to get max proformance you need to go to the WD web site to download some type of special allignment tool if you plan to partition drive or use it for cloning. The 64mb drives are set up with non-standard sectors which make them imcompatible with older more traditional drive structure.

Spacious, but check Load Cycle

  • Summary: I built a new PC last October (2011) using one of these as the primary boot drive. All was fine, although I couldn't quite access all 2.5TB on a single partition due to BIOS restrictions on an older motherboard (2.2TB limit on Windows 7-64 bit). After 4-5 months the disk errors started appearing, from random lockups and crashes mid application to later disk checks upon boot, with bad sectors, file fragments, etc and finally it refused to start.

So ne Sache

  • Summary: Ich bin mit dem Produkt eigendlich zufrieden da etwas über 2,3TB realer Speicher zur Verfügung steht und das Bios auch erkennt das etwas da ist. Nur leider zeigt mein Betriebssystem diese nicht an und ich kann nichts speichern^^ liegt warscheinlich an mir. Ich werde diese Bewertung natürlich den Umständen endsprechend anpassen wenn ich diese zum laufen gebracht habe.
