WDC product Quality

Douglas G., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Pros: What ive come to expect in the years of product usage from WDC, carries over into their refurbished product line as well, never a bad product and never had a failure to date. Based on what type of product I purchased, it worked exactly as I expected a 5400rpm platter drive to work.
  • Cons: Its not fast, but who expects that when buying this type of device, unless your coming off a 4200rpm ide laptop drive.....

Skeptical Refurbished

Kevin H., Newegg
3 February 2014
  • Pros: It's a Western Digital Hard Drive. There is not much to it, the name itself has it's own reputation of good.
  • Cons: No cons, works like if it was new.

Value and Performance

David M., Newegg
11 December 2013
  • Pros: I've been using the WD Scorpio Blue drives for the last couple of years in a price ticketing system for my company. The application is fairly disk intensive, as we ticket about 2000 items per day on each machine. I've been pleased with the performance and reliability with these drives, and the price makes them a good value. I was also pleased with the customer service I received from Action Packaged, Inc., the marketplace seller.

Almost.

Kristopher O., Newegg
10 December 2013
  • Summary: On the fourth day, open programs in Windows began behaving erratically and locking up on basic tasks. Following this, a BSOD followed by a hard reboot. Upon reboot, no operating system found. Another reboot and drive was not recognized as installed. Dead as a doornail.
  • Pros: Purchased to replace an 80GB Toshiba drive that had failed in a seven year old laptop used daily only for surfing and office work. 160GB 5.2k rpm was perfect, as I need little space and speed isn't an issue. I've generally had good luck with refurbished drives in the past.
  • Cons: After formatting the drive on my desktop, checking for errors, test copying some large files back and forth, and power cycling several times, I reformatted and installed it into the laptop. Windows copied my backup image of W7x32 flawlessly and I used the laptop for three days without problems.

Good drive, while it worked

Pascal F., Newegg
30 October 2013
  • Summary: Only 5400 RPM, so a little slower than 7200 RPM drives.
  • Pros: Good $/GB
  • Cons: Died after 6 months of use, just slowly started corrupting itself. Installed WIndows again and did chkdsk and other software scans, but it still corrupted again. Now it's just a paperweight.

Doing well.

Yui D., Newegg
17 April 2013
  • Pros: Quiet. Has been operating continuously since I received it - using it as a replacement drive in an older netbook, which is functioning as a home server (storage, backup, and other minor services). It's been a champ.
  • Cons: None.
