Failed Drive - Disappointed

Melissa C., Newegg
8 June 2012
  • Pros: Huge drive, especially when I bought it, and was a fantastic price.
  • Cons: Failed Slowly. Performance of computer suffered horrifically, never suspected the HDD until I suddenly lost all the data on the drive. Tried re-installing Windows and Linux and suffered severely poor performance. Disk seemed fine in tests, but replacing it with a spare HDD eliminated all performance problems. I am very disappointed, I have always exclusively purchased WD so hopefully none of them fail.

  • Summary: The previous hard drives that I last year were hell to install until I stumbled onto ACRONIS at the WD web site.
  • Pros: Bought 2, one was DOA Newegg replaced no problem.
  • Cons: It would be helpful if an installation disk were provided.

  • Pros: Easy installation, sturdy construction. Recall speed is up to snuff and has had no problems with data loss.
  • Cons: My motherboard bios could not find the drive on initial start up. I had to search through device manager and download several different drivers to get the drive to be recognized. My other drives had none of these problems.

"Good product, poor packaging, no support for linux/raid"

bacci2006, CNET
27 October 2009
  • Pros: - Quiet operation and low power usage - Drive can be prepped for Linux and/or RAID use: enable TLER (using wdtler.exe) and modify/disable default heads parking after 8 sec (using wdidle3.exe)
  • Cons: - Comes in blister package without bubble wrap, if ordered online hope it's not DOA because of shipping - Linux and/or RAID NAS users are on their own - no support from WD at all

Western Digital Caviar Green WD15EADS 1.5 TB: Amazingly fast

kingkingbill, Dooyoo
3 November 2009
  • Summary: Ive just put this hard drive in my newest gaming build. It is a very fast hardrive that is able to keep up with all games from "steam" (garrys mod,counter strike ARMA 2 rtc etc) The hardrives massive capacity means that i will never run out of room for all my precsious games and maybe even have them all installed at the same time for once. There are a few reservations as the hardrive can be a bit noisy under very heavy load but that is to be expected from most.
  • Pros: quiet, fast, CMM enabled
  • Cons: a tiny bit pricey ut compared to others its quite cheap

überdurchschnittliche Platte mit hoher Standfestigkeit

Mrwiseguy "wagio", Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: 5 dieser Platten sind aus insgesamt 4 verschiedenen Bestellungen jetzt seit 3-5 Jahren in einem NAS im Dauereinsatz. Alles ohne Auffälligkeiten. Geschwindigkeit ist nicht super für einen Desktop aber für ein NAS mehr als ausreichend. Vorsicht diese Platte ist die letzte Generation vor den 4K Sektoren und mit dieser nicht zu vergleichen. Auch wenn die ebenfalls Green heißen! Absolute Empfehlung.
