They've been great for my needs.

Gretchen H. "Enjoying life one strange moment..., Amazon
3 November 2013
  • 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!

I did not care for the Packaging....

M. Miller "M.D. Miller", Amazon
4 March 2010
  • Summary: I think this drive is functioning well and has to this point given great service. Problem is that its the second drive. I had to return the first one as it was not functioning correctly after being shipped in Amazons 'hassle free' packaging. That packaging consisted of simply 2 of the LARGE single chamber air filled bubble wrap packs and a OPENED standard static free plastic baggie.

Who decides the shipping container?

dsnjr, Amazon
16 January 2010
  • Summary: My only current issue with this product is the manner in which it was shipped by Amazon. I was shocked by the lack of protection provided to this order. It's a hard drive, and it's just put in a box with the anti-static bag. No bubble wrap? Peanuts? The shipping is discounted, I know, but certain items deserve a little bit more than corrugated cardboard. Hopefully it received minimal shock during shipment, which the box attests to (unlike my other delivery from Amazon).

Works fine - packaging needs more work

Jolly Rogers, Amazon
5 December 2009
  • Summary: The WD 1.5TB Green drive seems to be working fine. I just hope down the line, it doesn't fail because of the packaging during shipping. It was packaged like a pin ball in a box; to make matters worse, our mailman dropped it over a 5ft fence while we were not home. Since it is "Bulk/OEM" packaging, there is nothing but a thin layer of antistatic film covering it. Amazon's standard plastic air bags won't protect this product.

Amazing Storage Capacity-Reliability Can Be Improved

J. Wm Seabrooke CPA "Tax Man", Amazon
7 November 2009
  • Summary: I purchased four of these units for installation in my new Digital Robotics "Drobo" data storage unit. This model HDD was recommended by DR technical support. In the past five weeks three of the drives have functioned perfectly. However, one unit failed two weeks after first being installed. I was lucky.

Alles i.O. // Zyxel 210 sehr langsam

taucher@home, Amazon
1 May 2010
  • Summary: Leider kann ich Amazon-Prime diesmal keine Topnoten geben, da der Versand diesmal nicht "next day" war, sondern 2 Tage gedauert hat, was aber nicht weiter schlimm war. Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Festplatte die mehr als 1TB (echte Terrabyte, also 1024 GB) hatte, möglichst Zuverlässig und möglichst günstig sein sollte. Diese sollte in einem NAS von Zyxel betrieben werden (NSA210), wo sie nun auch verbaut ist und leise und zuverlässig ihren Dienst verrichtet.

als Extern

Feldi "F", Amazon
12 February 2010
  • Summary: Hallo, ich benutze die Platte als Externe. Der reale Speicher ist bei mir 1,36 TB, was einen Verlust von 140!!!!GB ausmacht. Wenn ich bedenke, dass mein alter Rechner nur eine 70GB intern hatte, sind 140 schon ne ganze Menge. Aber ansonsten funktioniert sie reibungslos. Sie ist mir sogar schon während des Betriebes auf den Boden gefallen und es ist nix passiert. Also kann ich sie im Endeffekt doch empfehlen.

große Festplatte

blitzi1277, Ciao
26 January 2010
  • Summary: Heute möchte ich über die Western Digital Elements Desktop WDBAAU0015HBK 1.5 TB berichten. Ich besitze sie nun schon einige Zeit. Es ist nun schon meine 3. externe Festplatte und auch die aktuell größte von denen. 1,5 TB ist schon extrem viel, wenn man bedenkt, was früher als ausreichend empfunden wurde. Die Western Digital habe ich bei MediaMarkt für knapp 100 Euro gekauft. Wenn man sich das Verhältnis Preis pro MB anschaut ist dies dann doch schon extrem günstig.
  • Pros: billig, großer Speicher, leise
  • Cons: kein Firewire

Platten für ein NAS

  • Summary: Platte für ein NAS !! Ich habe 2 St. dieser Platten in mein NAS eingebaut. Bis jetzt laufen diese Platte ohne Probleme. Der Test wird sich erst so in 2 - 3 Jahren herausstellen, wie lange die Platten ohne Fehler laufen.
