Great Drives but price has risen a lot in the last few years

Donald T., Newegg
3 March 2016
  • Summary: I have 3 of these drives and all of them is 1TB in size. I paid no more than 170.00 each. I was shocked to see the current price is hovering around 400 bucks just for one. wow
  • Pros: Fast, Quiet

Top of the Line - Best data storage Drive I've ever used

Brennan S., Newegg

  • Pros: High Capacity Extremely Reliable Quite (for a Raptor drive) Fast!
  • Cons: Not a con but just not as fast as a SSD (solid state drive)

Two down, rolling dice on 3rd

James L., Newegg
2 October 2015
  • Summary: The WD customer support has been very on top of things. But it sort of makes me think these drives are known to fail. I'm not taxing them at all -- they're not even 200 gb full and it's used as a media computer for my 5 year old to watch shows and play LEGO video games. Very disappointing thus far.
  • Pros: The pros when this drive is running are many: It's fast, a very capable boot drive, good enough storage for games, doesn't increase computer's internal temperature much.
  • Cons: The cons so far have been many: The first drive was shipped with a couple of bad sectors according to HDTune (always run that on new drives). I contacted Newegg and then Western Digital to see if those two bad sectors were enough to do a return. WD advised me to run their program to see if the dr...

Awful Peice of Equipment

JOSH M., Newegg

  • Summary: Newegg is not reliable to its customers tread carefully in this dangerous waters.
  • Pros: Nothing

One week later I receive word that I will not be receiving my refund because the bezzle was broken and they considered that physical damage. That's just horse **** not a single thing was wrong wi...

Great Drive from WD

George K., Newegg
1 February 2015
  • Pros: Have always been a proponent of WD drives for my builds. Have never had one arrive DOA. VelociRaptors are my drive of choice for the OS & Applications. Data & backups go onto slower speed WD HDDs. 1TB might be a little overkill, but, this drive seemed to have the best price point at the time of o...

CRASHED DRIVE

Shelia B., Newegg
7 November 2014
  • Pros: The hard drive, when it worked, was fast.
  • Cons: Hard drive crashed within 6 months of purchase. I do not consider this hard drive to be a worthy investment as less expensive hard drives have last me longer. I had always heard good things about Western Digital but I will be going with another brand from now on.
