Took 3 tries to get correct drive

Skylark, Amazon
29 January 2010
  • Summary: Amazon needs to improve their shipping department's accuracy. I ordered a WD 1TB Green HDD and the first one I received was a WD 500GB Black HDD. Contacted amazon's customer service and rep arranged for a second HDD to be shipped to me and also emailed a return shipping label. Received the 2nd HDD and again it was a WD 500GB HDD. Contacted amazon cust serv again and was told to wait a week and to reorder the 1TB green HDD again. Was emailed a 2nd return shipping label.

Hard Drive Pinata

Eric W. Vollrath, Amazon
16 November 2009
  • Summary: I've read reviews on this site about how hard drive are improperly packaged by amazon, but I guess I really didn't believe it. I received a power supply and this hard drive together in a single box with minimal bubble padding, which was only on the top. Underneath that, a power supply, underneath that, a hard drive packed only in an esd bag. Did I mention the box was enormous. It was like on Ace Ventura when he was pretending to be the mailman.

Very Fast, Runs Cool, A Little Noisy for HTPCs, Bad Packaging

Jeff Chambers, Amazon
17 July 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this drive to replace a Western Digital Caviar Blue 500 GB Bulk/OEM Hard Drive 3.5 Inch, 16 MB Cache, 7200 RPM SATA II WD5000AAKS, which by the way, was amazingly fast and quiet . This drive is just as fast, but too noisy for my taste. I prefer little to no noise from desktop and HTPC builds. This drive is better than many other drives out there, but still gives off noticeable noise.

Extremely poor packaging

Steve "Steve Ball", Amazon
29 March 2010
  • Summary: I ordered this item 5 days ago and to be fair it arrived on its due date. However the drive, in its anti-static bag, was wrapped in 2 sheets of thick paper and had then been placed in a single skin cardboard box prior to its dispatch from Germany. This is the poorest packaging I have ever seen for transporting a £60.00 hard drive. The drive has now been fitted and it works.

WD10EADS for popcorn hour NMT

Derp, Amazon
1 September 2009
  • Summary: Purchased this drive to replace the 500gb in my popcorn hour. very quiet and cool so far. Potential buyers can rest assured that amazon have listened to the packaging complaints. Mine came in a small foam packed box placed inside a larger box, surrounded with padding.

Ausreichend

L. Hartmeier, Amazon
17 November 2012
  • Summary: Habe die Platte für ein NAS-System gekauft. Läuft auch seitdem ganz gut. Gelegntlich macht sie aber laute Zugriffsgeräusche. Die SMART-Werte in den NAS-Systeminformationen sind zwar im grünen Bereich aber ich werde die Platte bei Gelegenheit gegen eine WD der roten Serie austauschen. Die ist genauso energiesparend und vor allem für NAS-Betrieb ausgelegt!

Acceptabel

Rollese, Prisjakt

  • Summary: Bra disk för pengarna, tyst och snabb. Har köpt två stycken online och fick två olika modell levererade: WD10EADS-00P8B0 och WD10EADS-00L5B1. Det dåliga betyget beror på att modell WD10EADS-00P8B0 och några andra med olika kapacitet har en bugg under Linux. Systemet IntelliPark som ska parkera läshuvuden när disken inte är aktiv för att spara energi gör det hela tiden om och om igen, några gånger per minut.

Naja....Es gibt besseres!

Timm Schäfer, Amazon
6 November 2009
  • Summary: Habe mir zwei solche Platten für mein ReadyNAS Duo geholt. Erste Platte eingebaut, geht. Schön leise. Zweite Platte ging nicht. Im PC einwandfrei. Problem nach langem suchen ist die Revision der Platten. Diese haben so massive Unterschiede, daß diese normal unter einem anderen Typ geführt werden sollten. Wenn eine Platte läuft, sollte auch die andere laufen. Außerdem lassen sich die beiden Platten nicht runterfahren. Egal was eingestellt ist.

Prankie, Prisjakt
9 April 2009
  • Summary: Herregud! Har jag fått en måndagsex eller? Den låter mer än alla mina samsung diskar tillsammas. Jag som ville bygga en tyst system så jag valde bara tysta komponenter. Läste review att den är tystare än många andra. Ligger definitivt över 40db när den läser. Ska spela in ljudet snart. EDIT: Här är länk till en youtube film där jag filmade hur det låter när den läser. http://www.youtube.com/watch?

Ganska bra

lastochka, Prisjakt
31 March 2009
  • Summary: Den är sval och rätt snabb. Men tyst är den definitivt inte. Låter inte för mycket, men klart hörbart även med ljudabsorberande montering. Upplever Seagate 7200.11 som betydligt tystare.
