Starting to doubt WD products

Chab, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: The drive performed all right for exactly three years, after which time it started being extremely slow (transfers around 1 Mb/s) regardless of the computer used. The diagnostic tools saw no problem with it. Apparently it is "close to dying" but not quite, which is probably a blessing in disguise, because I can at least access the files before the thing dies. In any case it seems I've been quite unlucky with my 3 WD products so far.

Died within a year, but RMA process was very good

K. Roberts, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: I have purchased a number of Western Digital drives previously, and all have performed well and been long-lived, except this one. This one died within a year, which was bad, but the RMA (return) process was very good. I entered the serial number of the drive into the RMA web page, the drive was recognized as within warranty and the return workflow was initiated.

This drive has not worked well

kentkirk, Amazon
13 September 2011
  • Summary: I used this drive in an external enclosure to clone an iMac computer. It worked during the transfer, but when it came time to update the back up it had errors and would not work and had to be reformated. The second time had the same issue. Finally, I partitioned the drive with 2/3 as a mac format and 1/3 as a standard format and the mac partition had the same issue, but the standard format remained accessible.

Ten buckaroos outta ten$$$$$$$$$$

Movieskinny "WayneG", Amazon

  • Summary: WD makes the best drives. I have quite a lot of them and all are still cranking away. I can only think of one ever that I had to send back because it died, a MyBook Edition. Doing a review of a hard drive is a little difficult. It is kind of a cumulative experience with many WD hard drives over the course of many years. I usually have paid a little extra too and bought the higher quality build drives.

Very Content

Olive, Amazon
28 June 2011
  • Summary: The Western Digital 1 TB has worked perfectly, installed quickly and is already full. (I am editing a lot of HD video) The only critique I would say is that it is a bit loud at moments but not to an annoying or very often degree. Has only stalled on me once out of countless times. I called Western Digital before making this purchase and the customer service was informative and kind. I would recommend to someone who needs something reliable and pretty darn cheap!

1-TB hard drive

LARRY REED, Amazon
13 June 2011
  • Summary: My 5-year old Seagate 500GB "C" drive was starting to make weird noises and getting occasional I/O errors. Cloned it to this 1-TB WD drive with no problems using the Western Digital web-site free cloning software. Was back in full operating mode in about 2 hours. A SATA serial ATA cable (not provided with the hard drive) was a necessity but only cost around $3.00. All-in-all, a very easy project to complete, especially since this was my first experience doing this.
