IMPORTANT - Warranty does not cover your data!! died in 6 months but it's under warranty

Patrick Visniewski "Coffee Fan", Amazon
4 October 2013
  • Summary: Either none of the 1TB or greater WD drives like more or they are have SERIOUS quality issue. This drive died in about 6 months. It wasn't part of a Raid5 system so many of the files are gone forever. But at least it's under warranty... now if they only included data recovery in that warranty I might actually be happy with it.

Ahh Storage

Amazon Customer "Mackdady", Amazon
24 October 2012
  • Summary: Love these green drives they are 'only' 5400 RPM's however with the large cache you dont notice except when the power bill comes, as they dont show up on it like the 7200 drives do. I have had not issues with longevity which also seems to be a perk with the 5400 drives they last longer than the 7200+ drives Imagine that!

MISLEADING!, UNINFORMATIVE, FALSE ADVERTISEMENT!

Bradley J. Thomas "CHEMLIGHT", Amazon
19 October 2012
  • Summary: (RE4) are the normal enterprise drives, created for demanding servers/workstation uses as oppose to the home desktop. Timings have been fine tuned for arrays, making them more reliable in the long run hence the price hike. (RE4-GP) is a Green Power, so it's essentially a 5400 rpm disk. The outer tracks will definitely be slower than the 7200 rpm models. 5400 is 75% slower than 7200 in terms of rpm.

Do Not Like

Meijer Goldstein, Amazon
27 September 2012
  • Summary: Drive repeatedly flashes the activity light and goes CLUNK a few times and repeats this pattern after a min or so. I Sent the drive back and got another similar one. The same thing happened and it was a different serial so it wasn't the identical drive. USB Cable was changed as was the box. Did some research on web and found that others having the same problem. This is a 2012 drive so the firmware should be up to date.

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

Augie, Amazon
14 August 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. Connected by esata cable. Twice I had to cycle power to the dock to view (select a movie ) I could see the list but when selected screen went black & dock light did Not blink.

Walter W. Ware, Amazon
24 May 2012
  • Summary: I have sereral of these drives and they work and work and work - i did get a DOA that sound like it has busted it's bearings but i did not get it from Amazon I think the reseller was buying bad inventory - because these drives are burned in at the facotry and they should be OK unless they fell off the truck - but a word to the wise don't buy OEM - Western Digital does not warranty OEM drives - bare drives OK - check the web site for more info

Manufacturing defects, beware.

Chris W. "Chris", Amazon
8 November 2011
  • 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 controller to present errors. What does this mean? In your desktop, probably not that big of a deal.
