Western Digital is the best.... AMTECH fine print is not.

Jon M., Amazon
25 December 2013
  • Summary: Be sure to read the fine print on the AMTECH site. Their words: "Please also note that "new" does not always mean factory sealed boxes or zero hours drives. However "Factory Sealed Box" in the description means factory sealed boxes and zero hours drives." Speccy doesn't lie.

Thoroughly Used Drives (bought from BuyAccessories)

C. Day, Amazon
4 March 2012
  • Summary: Like others have said these are very used drives. You might as well dig into the used section of this page to get them as cheap as possible. The ones I've gotten should do the job, but the drive I checked had almost 70,000 hours of power on hours on it. Doesn't get much more used than that.

User Review

Thomas H., Newegg
8 February 2011
  • Pros: WD has always been good to me until I got this particular one.
  • Cons: Something was a miss with it, not sure. It would boot up at times and then next start up the bios wouldn't see it. Just a bad apple

High defect rate

doug s., Newegg
14 October 2010
  • Summary: I have my own IT business and I replace a lot of hard drives. Over the past year I have had three of these drives (out of about 30) fail after about 1 to 1.5 years. This is abnormally high for a hard drive.
  • Pros: Cheap.
  • Cons: Seems to be a higher than normal failure rate for this drive.

Batting average=.500

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: If I had just bought the one for my computer, I'da given it 4 or 5 eggs. It works just fine, and it's quiet to boot. But that second one--I didn't even want to chance an exchange for fear there's something goofy about them that diagrees with my wife's hardware.
  • Pros: The one that works right, works right. That went into my old Dell running Windows XP to replace the original 40 GB Seagate. I cloned the disk with the Western Digital Acronis software, and voila--up and running!
  • Cons: On the other hand--the other one was intended for my wife's computer, also running Windows XP, to replace a 30 GB Maxtor. Nothing I did could get the disk to boot XP--I tried cloning it with the Acronis software--nothing. I tried doing a fresh install--nothing. I tried partitioning it into big pa...
