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

RickD4Real, Amazon
5 days ago
  • 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.

USED DRIVES!!!

Rosti Slonimskiy, Amazon
19 September 2014
  • Summary: These are USED Drives!!! The listing is marked as new, they come packaged "OEM" style but the package seems home made and not factory. The contacts seem discolored just like when they have been exposed to the air. I bought 2 drives and after doubting their "NEW" condition I ran a SMART check on them 1 drive has about 6800 hours that like 285 days of non stop up time and the other is 1000 hours!!

Do NOT BUY!!!

J Li, Amazon
8 August 2014
  • Summary: Well, if you think you are buying cheap WD RE4 HDD, you are wrong, just like me. The model # is MB2000EAZNL. When I googled it, it's HP HDD, not WD. This doesn't bother me at all. What really bothers me is the power on time is 22,784 hours (31 months 19 days 8 hours). I thought I was buying a new HDD, but I guess the seller is playing us.

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

Roman W, 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!
