Awful Peice of Equipment
JOSH M., Newegg
5 June 2015
Summary: Newegg is not reliable to its customers tread carefully in this dangerous waters.
Cons: Came broken did not work. Physically fine. Did not work upon arrival and created an RMa for a return. 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...
Summary: First time I have bought from a 3rd party on Newegg, will not do that again, didn't get stared on buiid for 3 weeks, then it was to late to RMA, Newegg no help because its a 3rd party seller. Oh well there's always WD warranty.
Pros: Didn't last long enough to see any, but does make a nice paperweight.
Cons: Unusable after 1.5 years. Causing many apps to run slow and i cannot access my files on my "Backup" drive. i am getting this new notice now from windows saying my drive is about to fail and i should back up all my files.
Summary: Would be nice if Newegg warrentied the drive, instead I have to go to WD to have the Raptor replaced, which is cost out of my pocket!
Pros: Awsome drive...but not for long! Stay away from any WD Raptor drives....they don't last...Just a warning! LOOK, they have been "DISCONTINUED"...If "you" made something "good", would you ever stop making it?
Cons: Awsome drive...but not for long! Stay away from any WD Raptor drives....they don't last...Just a warning! Drive has some failure issues...google it! I don't even give the dirve a 1 STAR, I was forced to!
Summary: I was hoping to have my brand new computer put together this weekend so that I could enjoy Metro Last Light on max settings next week. This is not going to happen thanks to WD.
Pros: Advertised specs.
Cons: Immediate "starts to spin, then clicks" behavior. Is there a quality check process? I handle hardware very gently and carefully and am using regular SATA cables and power provided from a brand new PSU that is powering Seagate drives with no problem. I swapped cables around to make sure it wasn't ...
Summary: The drive appeared to be a raw disk. When I tried to initialize it, Windows Virtual Disk Manager reported "Data error (cyclic redunancy check)"; rebooted OS and tried again, "the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error".
