Horrible quality control

Hit or miss - this one missed

Igor S., Newegg
3 April 2016
  • Pros: Cheap Good r/wr speeds
  • Cons: Bought as an external SSD; backed up files to it in 2014. Powered it on in 2015 and backed up files to it then. Now it's dead - literally three uses.

WD Caviar Black okay so far

Adrian K., Newegg
6 March 2016
  • Summary: It was nicely packaged by Newegg. So far I'm thrilled with my first build. I was really skeptical about building rather than buying, but a friend of mine showed me the way!
  • Pros: Price for the product. I used this in my first PC build, so I was buying products that had many positive reviews. This filled that requirement and so far it has been great. I'll give it 4 eggs for now since I've only had it for a month or so. As of 03-06-2016 this drive is still functioning fine ...
  • Cons: None yet.

Made me a true believe in Westerd Digital for all my mechanical hard drive needs.

Ryan S., Newegg
13 January 2016
  • Summary: This drive has lasted the life of my computer, and will likely continue to work just fine in my son's computer. It has shown me that I can fully trust WD with mechanical drive purchases.
  • Pros: Nice high capacity. (For 2013 when I bought it.) Speedy for a mechanical drive with a big cache.
  • Cons: For what it is, none? Are there better drives out there? Sure. SSDs have gotten pretty big and inexpensive lately.
