Limited 1year warranty

  • Summary: I was told by Western digital that Blue drives should not be left on for long periods of time because they are not meant for heavy usage. It is their cheapest drive and is not recommended for a heavy used PC. The warranty is short. I have had a few fail after 1 year. I was told this is normal.

  • Summary: I bought this hard drive to build a laptop in order to sell it. But naturally, no one bought the laptop so I'm using it as a media server. The drive just works, not sure what else I can say about it.

Fixed my problem

Brian D. Schrand "929rider", Amazon
2 August 2013
  • Summary: This is one of those things where it either works and its great or it doesn't and its terrible. This harddrive was compatible with my Dell and got us back up and running. Too early to say if it was a good value because only time will tell.

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.
