  • Summary: Bought two; one failed within a week. Need to pay ~$7 to ship it back to WD for replacement. Don't buy the 2TB (WD2001FASS) version.

  • Summary: Its not often that I take the time to write a review on a product, but I had to do it for this drive. I have been in the IT field for over 20 years and though I have seen it all. I purchased 3 of the 2TB Black drives in the last month. One here on Amazon and the rest, somewhere else.

Dead within 60 days

  • Summary: I have read of others that have had hard drives fail and yet in many cases I still see an average or better rating for the drive. I just don't get that. In my case, this drive started giving S.M.A.R.T.

Great price for 1TB but...

  • Summary: I bought this drive for extra storage. I've installed many drives with no problems so it never occurred to me to worry about the quality of Western Digital's tech support. The drive works, but only under the right conditions.
