Did they actually do that?

Marvin Jensen, Amazon
1 April 2015
  • Summary: Interesting. While I am waiting for them to answer me if these units actually come with a 5 year Warranty (as shown in their ad), for their price of $72.00, they jack the price to $90.00. I needed a dozen of these. Their loss.

Price would be right - if it was actually a new drive.

RickD4Real, Amazon
20 October 2014
  • Summary: I had a similar experience as another reviewer. Immediate SMART failure and mass powered on hours listed. The firmware was also _older_ than the other drives I have in my array. If it was indeed a new drive, I would have at least expected firmware to be semi-current.

A. Schorr, Amazon

enterprise edition drive, premium price, advertised 5 yr warranty, 1 yr actual warranty w. manufacturer, DIED within 8 months

C D, Amazon
31 May 2014
  • Summary: Bought this new in July 2013; by April 2014 it would not access data. In February 2014, it began by throwing strange errors in windows. Windows 7 would not boot at all or it took longer than 5 minutes to boot - previous boot times were about 30 seconds.

Warranty Issues

R. Fernandes, Amazon
13 May 2014
  • Summary: This review is not for the drives. I have 18 WD drives. They are great. But I recently purchased 5 drives here at AMAZON and upon registering them with WD find that they are not under warranty for various reasons. These drives should come with a 5 year warranty.

User Review

William G., Newegg
10 January 2013
  • Summary: All 5 drives showed no warranty on the Western Digital warranty checker website. Drives were originally sold to SuperMicro and then somehow Newegg got them. Spent over an hour on the phone with WD to get the warranty corrected only to have 4 dead drives.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Ordered five of theses drives with 4 DOA.

33% Dead on arrival

Vernon W., Newegg
5 September 2012

  • Pros: 5 year warranty
  • Cons: two of 6 drives were dead on arrival

Why? I don't get it.

Eric K., Newegg
17 August 2012
  • Summary: I suspect somewhere along the line somebody is playing floor hockey with these drives. I give up.
  • Pros: Price wasn't bad. Drive received super quick. RMA process was quick and painless.
  • Cons: DOA. Clickety-click.

Test your New HDD before using it

R. Lloyd, Amazon
23 February 2012
  • Summary: I installed the HDD, initialized it under Win 7/64bit and ran Western Digital's Data LifeGuard (from their website as a free download). Drive passed SMART test and short test. I then ran the extended test twice. Both times, the test aborted due to an excessive number of bad sectors.
