Summary: ... I put in an RMA request over the weekend, and 4 business days later still no reply. Also, shipping took longer than it would have if purchased directly from newegg. Won't be buying from external sellers through newegg again....
Pros: I imagine it has many...
Cons: Arrived dead, no big deal right? these things happen, but...
The 3 drives that I received were date codes 2010 and 2011. Returned for refund.

Summary: The 3 drives that I received were date codes 2010 and 2011. I returned all 3 because I was not willing to risk installing drives that sat on a shelf somewhere for 4 years a new build. I was disappointed that the age of the drives was not disclosed in the description.
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.

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.
Heavily used drive sold as new. No WD waranty when the listing stated "5 Years". Check your SMART data for total hours used.

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.
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.
