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!!!

Too good to be true.

Heaven, Amazon
9 December 2014
  • Summary: The drive I got was WD2003FYYS, okay good. However there is 2.4 years of 24/7 use on the drive (21149 hours). The Warranty goes out in a year. There is no mention that this will be a used drive and no meantion the warranty is anything less than the 5-years that is expected from western digital.

USED DRIVES!!!

Rosti Slonimskiy, Amazon
19 September 2014
  • Summary: These are USED Drives!!! The listing is marked as new, they come packaged "OEM" style but the package seems home made and not factory. The contacts seem discolored just like when they have been exposed to the air.

Do NOT BUY!!!

J Li, Amazon
8 August 2014
  • Summary: Well, if you think you are buying cheap WD RE4 HDD, you are wrong, just like me. The model # is MB2000EAZNL. When I googled it, it's HP HDD, not WD. This doesn't bother me at all. What really bothers me is the power on time is 22,784 hours (31 months 19 days 8 hours).

NO Warranty - Amazon claims 5 years

J.Ingle, Amazon
17 July 2014
  • Summary: As mentioned in other reviews, if you buy this hard drive be sure to verify that the advertised 5 year warranty is valid. The one I received was not packed like other new Western Digital drives I have purchased, so I immediately suspected it being not as represented.

2010 'new' hard drive

Aristotle, Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: Another old/new drive. These drives were made in 2010!!!. I'm hoping that despite that, it will work for near it's warranty period, which when new, was 5 years. I have no warranty, other then Servertechs' alleged 3 year warranty. That is only over the phone, and is not stated on the invoice.
