They've been great for my needs.

  • Summary: Honestly I haven't had any problems with WD hard drives and I hope me typing that doesn't jinx anything! They've been sturdy little work horses but I also don't use them on a constant basis - I use them as swappables for storing photo archives on. I haven't had any arrive DOA nor have they kicked the bucket on me so I'll keep with them!

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: This is a total new build.
  • Pros: Bought two and have had three failures. The first two failures were replaced by newegg. The last failure was replaced by western digital.
  • Cons: I have always been loyal western digital customer but I am having problems with their quality control.

  • Summary: For the price I am more than satisfied. I only wish the drive would be recognized on start-up. With medium computer knowledge I would recommend this SATA drive to anyone either adding a hard drive to an existing system or on initial build-up.
  • 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.

Does what I need it to do

Eric M. Griffin "Griff", Amazon
23 March 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this HD because I was running out of storage capacity for my digital videos. I have some experience putting together computers, so this was a rather simple plug & play experience. Since buying it I have had no problems at all, so I couldn't really comment on service/support as it wasn't needed. Although the item shipped quickly and arrived undamaged, I was a little upset at the lack of packing materials used to protect such a sensitive item.
