Too good to be true.

Heaven, Amazon
9 December 2014
  • Summary: The drive I got was WD2003FYYS, okay good. However there is 2.4 years of 24/7 use on the drive (21149 hours). The Warranty goes out in a year. There is no mention that this will be a used drive and no meantion the warranty is anything less than the 5-years that is expected from western digital. Currently trying to get in contact with the seller to get this situation cleared up.

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. Also - attempted registration with WD, and the S/N came back as out of region(?). Price is right, but pitching used drives as new = bad juju.

A. Schorr, Amazon

2010 'new' hard drive

Aristotle, Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: Another old/new drive. These drives were made in 2010!!!. I'm hoping that despite that, it will work for near it's warranty period, which when new, was 5 years. I have no warranty, other then Servertechs' alleged 3 year warranty. That is only over the phone, and is not stated on the invoice. Only a 30 day warranty is stated on the invoice, and a claim that retail products are covered by the manufacturers warranty.

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. We tested the mainboard, replaced the RAM, removed all other non-critical components and the machine would still not boot.

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. Just following up to add that WD informs me that the drives I purchased were manufactured in 2010. They only accomodate 1 year of the 4 years of shelf.

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. I returned drive and asked amazon to send a replacement.

Has only Amazon's 1 year warranty

Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this drive recenly due to its increased warranty. However, when I registered it on WD's customer service page, it's warranty status was "OUT OF REGION", meaning that I only had Amazon's 1 year warranty for it. I had to return the drive.

Leider Erwartungen nicht erfüllt

Ludwig der III., Amazon
25 November 2010
  • Summary: Meine Rezension bezieht sich auf den Artikel: "Western Digital WD2003FYYS 2TB interne Festplatte (8,9 cm (3,5 Zoll), 7200rpm, 8,9ms, 64MB Cache)" Leider habe ich habe ich nach 3 Wochen per Diagnose-Tool "CrystalDiskInfo" feststellen müssen, das die Platte "Wiederzugewiesene Sektoren" und "Aktuell schwebende Sektoren" aufwies. Bei aller Liebe aber das ist völlig indiskutabel, zumal für diesen Preis!
