Just say no to WD - both their drives and their support site are defective

Patrick Visniewski "Coffee Fan", Amazon
4 October 2013
  • Summary: UPDATE: building a new system, so decided to spend a minimal amount of time getting an RMA for my remaining 2 2TB WD drives. First a reminder: when your drive dies, you don't just lose the hardware, you usually lose all the weeks/months/years of data as well.

Do a Warranty Check on Delivery !!!

doctorpc, Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: great drive and excellent price, at least until you need to return a drive for warranty replacement. turns out the warranty expired 3 years before it was purchased (2/2013). These drives are supposed to carry a 5yr replacement warranty but not in this case.

  • Summary: We have 16 of these drives in a Promise VessRaid. It was put into service in October. One drive failed within the first month. No other failures to report for the first five months. The drives are very quiet and cool as you would expect. And fast enough for our storage needs.

Works great with 3ware

J. Wilson, Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: I've been using these drives for several months now on a 3ware 9650SE-24M8 24 port RAID controller. All of my drives are still running firmware 04.05G04 and I have had no issues. I started with 3 and have been adding to and migrating the RAID 5 volume by a disk every few months as my needs increase.

Manufacturing defects, beware.

Chris W., Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: I have at least 48 of these drives in active use in a large RAID array. We've been experiencing random lockups with our RAID controller for the past few months, and after hours of troubleshooting with multiple players, we've determined that these drives are actually locking up, causing the RAID...

Works well with NAS

R. Burns, Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: These drives have performed flawlessly in a NetGear ReadyNAS Pro. It is necessary for the NAS's firmware to disable the 'green' function of these drives to prevent repetitive head parking (Load Cycle Count).

Solid Workhorses

DCrane, Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: I have about 100 of these drives alongside around 700 other drives in use for my business. These are solid drives that just go and go. All issues that have cropped up have been the fault of overly narrow focused, assumption laden hardware RAID controllers.

WD 2 TB Hard Drives - Five

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: I purchased five of these 2 TB Western Digital Data Center Rated Hard Drives for a new Synology DS509+ Network Attached Storage Server I bought for my small business. After about two weeks up and running, so far so good. They are extremely quiet, and generate just a small amount of heat.

problems but I don't know what the cause is!

Augie, Amazon
30 November 2012
  • Summary: I like the 3.5" drive over the 2.5" drive, bigger has more room to lose the heat. Like a bigger watt light ie(200w vs 50w) bulb is bigger for the same reason, the element fits the smaller bulb. Problem- harddrive-hd sitting in a dock, connected to a directv. To record movies.
