It Died

JEFF DAVIS, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: It quit working 3 days after getting the drive and installing it in a laptop, it would not even recognize as a drive. I used WD utilities (in an external encasement) and it got to recognize the drive 1 time and gave a bad checksum on the boot sector and I was never able to get back to the drive...

Sucked-DOA

Kevin H., Newegg
11 March 2009
  • Summary: Newegg's service was flawless, as usual. Shipping time was quick and RMA process was smooth.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Arrived DOA. Tried in 2 different computers, neither would recognize. Had to RMA. 1st WD drive I've ever rec'd that was dead. I wish Newegg would have had more in stock because I really wanted this drive, but since this was the only one I was able to get and it was dead, gotta give it 1 egg.

CRASHED TWICE

BJ O., Newegg
3 November 2008
  • Pros: Works fine til it crashes
  • Cons: I purchase this HD around a year ago... it crashed after 3 months. I sent it in to WD they sent back a refurbished one and it recently crashed after around 8 months. May just be the DELL that the HD was in that caused it but it was the HD that crashed. I paid $80 back when I bought mine.

Tony "Tony", Amazon
22 July 2006
  • Summary: Please be advised to stay away from this drive. I have lost very important work as it crashed, replaced with another and it crashed again. Please be aware Fudjitsu Pc's use these drives so if you have one please change it before you start developing problems. Very poor.

Lack of Support for Failed Drives

Anon, Amazon
7 December 2005
  • Summary: Lack of Support for Failed Drives Western Digital will not support your hard drive WHEN it fails. On November 16, 2004, I bought a 250GB hard drive. Three months later in February, 2005, I had to return it for a replacement due to a hard failure.

Staying away from this drive

Chris, Amazon
26 May 2005
  • Summary: After all the bad reports from these reviews and the many customer reviews on the circuit city website [...] Many of which involve quotations like "The drive started to spark" or "It simply caught on fire" I think I'll just stay away from this drive.
