No more newegg for me

Jeff O., Newegg
17 February 2015
  • Summary: I contacted customer service via the chat window and they told to to wait 3 to 7 business days for them to get back to me with their decision on what they were going to do? DUH, wrong item, REFUND? Nope,wait. Been a new egg customer since it started,never a problem until now.
  • Pros: great,if it was the correct drive.
  • Cons: the drive was mislabeled from WD . I ordered 3 and 2 were correct but one is 200 GB. It was still factory sealed,and has the 500 GB label on it. So,YOU, may get one of these also!!!

  • Summary: Drive was defective, but not necessarily a deal-breaker. I accessed the aeon Micro website and received an RMA. I put a note inside "For Replacement" Now I get an email confirming a refund!

Thought I was buying an OEM WD hard drive...

Greg D. Watson, Amazon
10 May 2014
  • Summary: Bought the drive and seller made a phone call to follow up on the sale. Sounded great. When I got the drive, it was a HP OEM stamped WD hard drive with a server mounting bracket. Checked with WD and there was no warranty on the hard drive. Tried to save $10 and it wound up costing me $14.00.

The drives were not packed - one arrived DOA, another still had someone's data on it.

Magus, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: The drives arrived in a box together with some other heavy stuff I purchased from Amazon, with no wrapping material whatsoever. They were just wrapped with plastic. One was DOA. Another drive still had someone's data on it.

Ok while it worked

Stuart W., Newegg
11 March 2014
  • Summary: It is hard to believe this is an enterprise drive. It is also hard to believe that WD lists Velociraptors as enterprise drives. I gave up on their reliability after buying four of them. Not worth returning, relacing with Seagate
  • Pros: From its description it seemed like what I wanted: a relatively small, reliable, mid-performace system drive.
  • Cons: Installed mid August 2013, Failed March 8, 2014 under less than moderate use.

67% failure rate

Wei W., Newegg
28 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought 3 drives for a raid system, 2 out 3 failed right out of box, wasted me several hours trying to make it work on my server. This is what Western Digital called "enterprise" class drive, what a joke. Meanwhile, I ordered 8 Seagate drives for my NAS server, none of them failed!
  • Pros: Nothing about the hardware, but the warranty service is fairly quick.
  • Cons: horrible reliability

50% failure rate

Robert K., Newegg
4 February 2014
  • Pros: The one that works seems marginally faster than other 1TB 64MB cache SATA drives I've used.
  • Cons: 1 of the 2 I purchased failed after 1 hour of use. I didn't even get to complete my OS installer before it failed. "Enterprise"...
