Failed after 3 weeks of use. Blah.

R. Hiers, Amazon
8 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this unit and didn't get around to installing it for a couple of weeks. About 3 weeks after installing, the drive started clicking. I ran the WD diagnostic tools and they determined the drive had indeed failed. I contacted the seller, but was told that because the hard drive had been purchased over 30 days prior, it was no longer eligible for replacement. So, I went to WD and returned it through them.

Slow writing/reading speed

Hiroyuki Ikezi, Amazon
27 June 2013
  • Summary: I installed this drive on Mac Pro for multiple channel sound recordings. ProTools ( a sound recording software ) issues a message 'writing/reading speed is not fast enough' at 24 bit, 96 kHz around 10 channels ( approximately 3 MB/sec ) or more recordings/playbacks. This drive works OK for just storing data. I replaced the drive by WD black version, which has been working at 16 channels recordings/playbacks.

Trash

Zarach, Amazon
15 June 2013
  • Summary: The hard drive worked 11 days, file a physical failure, so that is irreparable. I feel cheated, I have other discs of the same brand that have several years running smoothly. I recommend this article to anyone because the research I found that this model has this manufacturing defect that makes its life is very short.

Good replacement for an Airport Extreme/Time Capsule drive; runs cooler than the original

chas, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: I have 2 computers backed up by a 2nd generation 1TB Time Capsule, and there was hardly enough room for all the backups. After doing much forum reading regarding changing out drives, I settled on this 2TB WD model (after first ordering and returning a Seagate, which some have found has firmware incompatibility problems affecting the fan).

Item sold by Amazon as new was not actually new!!!

Nathan, Amazon
1 February 2013
  • Summary: The hard drive purchased was supposed to be new according the listing as new. However, the electrostatic bag the hard drive ships in had been opened and the descant removed. Clearly not new. The item works, but now question the manufactures warranty and the reliability of the used drive. Amazon, you should be ashamed!
