Good HDD

Randall M., Newegg
19 March 2015
  • Summary: Too bad this model was discontinued, driving the retail price so high.
  • Pros: It is quiet. Quiet enough I ordered its brother today, the WD1003FZEX. It's fast considering its an HDD. It still carries a five year warranty.
  • Cons: It lasted 3 years, six months and two days before total failure. Obviously that's not a deal breaker for me, but I'd have preferred twice the life if not more.

Update to earlier review on 11/24/2012

  • Summary: I have two of these running in my PC right now with no issues. Docked one egg because the initial unit had issues. Would still highly recommend.
  • Pros: Very fast, quiet, a lot of storage.
  • Cons: After 6 months of use this drive started to fail. RMA process was very fast and easy. Have had the replacement in for almost 1.5 years now no problems.

Finally Gave out!

Edwin B., Newegg
19 August 2014
  • Pros: Great hard drive and pretty fast for your standard 7200 RPM HD. Pretty quiet and kept cool.
  • Cons: Finally gave out today and was hoping it would have last longer than 3 years but it is still a good run for a $60 hard drive.

Worked for a while...

  • Summary: Bought this back on 2012. Up and died on my suddenly. This seems about par for WD drives in my experience. They work really well for a couple of years and then they just have a sudden death. Though, that is just my observation. It served the purpose for which it was bought.
  • Pros: The drive worked as it's intended.
  • Cons: All HDD's crash at some point

Good Harddrive.

Angel T., Newegg
3 February 2014
  • Summary: Used in my first ever PC build. I have added a graphics card and upgraded memory on my old family PC before, but I have finally been able build my own. Was considering going with a SSD and regular HDD combo, but went with just this to save money. No disappointments yet. This is a great harddrive.
  • Pros: Was only $100 when bought. Storage Space
  • Cons: Uncomforting noises.
