disgruntled

Merlin, Amazon

  • Summary: I was very disappointed with the quality of the product and the fact that I haven't heard back from the vendor regarding returning it. I believe this was a refurbished product sold as new. The drive failed within a few hours of being installed

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.

Manufacturing defects, beware.

  • Summary: I have at least 48 of these drives in active use in a large RAID array.

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.

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.

66% Failure Rate

DrHenley, Amazon
14 August 2012
  • Summary: First I had problems with one of the drives dropping out of the RAID, then it failed and when I sent it back and got a replacement, the replacement drive was DOA. That makes a 66% failure rate - totally unacceptable.

Problems with enterpise class RAID controllers

Pieter Viljoen, Amazon
26 July 2012
  • Summary: I tested 10 x RE4-GP drives in a RAID5 and RAID6 array with the following enterprise class RAID controllers: Adaptec 51245, Areca ARC1680ix-16, and LSI 8888ELP with a Chenbro CK12803 port expander. The LSI only has 8 ports and to accommodate 10 drives I needed a port expander.

Faulty new drive and then truly terrible support from WD

Mr. R. Burnikell, Amazon
2 August 2012
  • Summary: I was untill now a big fan of WD, but that was because I had never needed their customer support before. I ordered a set of WD2002FYPS drives of the current model 02W3B (not from amazon but elsewhere) for use in RAID.

Wolfgang Forstner, Amazon

  • Summary: WDCWD2003FYPS2 scheint eine totale FEHLKONSTRUKTION zu sein (nach c.a. einer Woche DEFEKT, d.h. lässt sich nicht mehr anschalten... ist "tot". daher vermutlich so günstig. Es gibt keine Satements oder Updates seitens WD.
