Still Strong

Kyle G., Newegg
8 December 2014
  • Pros: At the time this was a high capacity hard-drive, I was iffy about the Green WD state, but I ensist to try it. It was first my primary hard-drive, it ran pretty well, but some reason my 32mb cache 500 WD reg hdd seem to run a little bit smoother, so I kept this as my storage drive *music/movies* on there. No errors, no complaints
  • Cons: None

Reliable

Jon H., Newegg
6 November 2012
  • Summary: use it to store data never as an os drive for a few months in the beginning i used to use it for a few hours then unplug it. i never stream/view/watch/play from it, ONLY STORAGE.
  • Pros: everything you need from a big drive working for 2 years and 8 months perfectly.
  • Cons: erased my data once when i removed the jumper (while the power was off) that allowed it to be formatted under xp. i rescued the data with a program and wasn't all that upset.

A+ WesternDigital

Marina Y., Newegg
9 April 2012
  • Summary: I bought this drive 2.5 years ago and it's served me well. About two weeks ago I built a new computer and threw the good ole WD in it. Not long after, there was a catastrophic motherboard failure that burned out the HD. I looked up my warranty on WD's site and it was still under coverage. I opened an RMA, quick "pick one" on what was wrong with the drive, and mailed it in. Another one is already on it's way back just over a week later!
  • Pros: -Huge amount of space -Long-lived -Great manufacturer's warranty
  • Cons: -Had a bit of a hard time formatting this as a slave drive when I first got it. May have been because I was slaving it to an incompatible drive though... Eventually it worked out and never gave me another issue.

Hard Drive Review

DamonLehr, Amazon
26 March 2012
  • Summary: I have been buying hard drives for over 25 years. Through the years I have owned every brand. I can't say for certain that Western Digital is the BEST drive out there, but I can say that the fail rate for me has been much much lower than the other brands I have tried. Also with that said I would like you to know that the Western Digital company has a great warranty and web site that makes returns easy incase a product were to ever fail.

User Review

Matthew A., Newegg
4 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought two of them over a year ago, back when you could get two for the price of what one is today. I still check back on the drive price every few weeks, using it as sort of an indicator of when drive prices will be back to normal.
  • Pros: 2 out of 2 still working great after a year of constant use. The drives run cool too, cooler than an older non "Green" drive that has a fan in front of it.
  • Cons: It's a slow drive, but I use mine for data storage, not gaming or OS installs.
