3 dead drives out of 5 is not good

Richard "shopper", Amazon
12 October 2013
  • Summary: I have purchased 5 Western Digital Caviar Green 1 TB 5400rpm drives since 2009 and 3 of the drives are now completely dead. It looked like a great buy but does not stand up in the long run. Several of the failed drives were lightly used.

Died After Two Years

Corey, Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: About a week after the warranty expired the hard drive died. In the future I'll probably look to buy a hard drive from a company that offers a longer warranty.

After 2 years, two drives, both eventually crashed.

Delta Echo, Amazon
11 April 2012
  • Summary: We own two of these drives as redundant back-up drives in Win XP SP3 P4 design machines, purchased in 2010. I was impressed at first by the speed, cost and "reliability" of WD products. The XP installation was simple (jumper not included, but still easy none the less).

  • Summary: Bought 3 WD10EARS (WD Caviar Green 1 TB), 2 for Intel RST RAID1 data drive, the other as a spare / clone for the SSD system drive. 2 seem O.K., the other is 30% slower. I did swap sata ports, no change.

These drives are NOT RAID COMPATIBLE

Ryan Amidon, Amazon
27 August 2011
  • Summary: I purchased two of these drives to set them up in a RAID 1 configuration in my DNS-323 NAS. However, every time I try to run the RAID 1 option in the DNS-323 configuration utility, the drive formatting fails. I consider myself computer savvy, but I am definitely not an expert.

Dead after 3 months, and hardly used.

Mike, Amazon
17 August 2011
  • Summary: I have never had a hard drive fail on me, nor know any friends or family members who've had a hard drive failure. So I was very surprised when windows came up with an error about this drive failing.
