Working fine up til now

Anonymous, Newegg
9 January 2015
  • Summary: It should have issued a warning of some kind, slow start, delayed start basically spin up issues but there was not a single one.
  • Pros: Was a solid drive
  • Cons: No warning at all immediate failure. Normally with smart or other drive diags a warning will issue or so sectors start to go etc. Here the drive motor just fails and now all those GB of data is gone.

Not impressed - Stay Away

Lee B., Newegg
3 May 2011
  • Summary: I was initially impressed at how cool this green hdd ran. Because my system is RAID, I had little need to use external storage, but after only the third use in a year's time, it died. When did it die? The one time I was actually relying on it while I did a system rebuild for a dual boot config.
  • Pros: Specifications sounded impressive - problem is that this Caviar Green didn't live up to them. I remain confident in the Caviar Black line of WDC drives, and most especially the RE3's & RE4's. You get what you pay for & this Greenie was low end by comparison.
  • Cons: Died after 1yr - Only used 3 times as External BackUp - BUT during those few times - the thing seemed to be accessing constantly- and actually sounded busier when in idle.

  • Pros: Quiet
  • Cons: Bought 2, one died after 11 months. Now waiting for the other to go. Switch to a 2TB Seagate but not sure I like this one as well. The Seagate is noticeably louder.

bought 2 of these

Robert W., Newegg
4 November 2010
  • Summary: I am now submitting an RMA to WD and upgrading them to a different model.
  • Pros: they worked for a little bit.
  • Cons: I've had to replace both with a total of 8 hours runtime on them. The replacements failed after 3 weeks of use. Each drive, replacements included, produce and obnoxious squealing under moderate to heavy use.

Failed after 6 months

Ladybug "msladybug", Amazon
1 October 2010
  • Summary: I have 4 drives on my Mac Pro and made the mistake of adding this one in my last drive for my photography work. Sure enough 6 months later the drive started failing and I had to buy special software to retrieve my photos on this drive from the corrupt areas. Not a good investment.
