Test the drive before you transfer your files!!!

DSB, Amazon
29 February 2012
  • Summary: The one I ordered was the 2TB one. I ran HD Tune on the drive immediately after I received this hard drive. Surprisingly, the drive has 9 percents damaged blocks. The worse thing was, whenever I tried to run the benchmark test, the "read error" window popped up. HD Tune was not able to run benchmark tests on this hard drive. This is the first time I have a bad experience with WD hard drive. I hope this is not common on other green drives.

Cheap packaging and defective product

  • Summary: Bad Drive, Bad Packaging, Bad Performance The cheap price of this drive may tempt many people to buy this drive but I recommend against it. The hard disk comes in a flimsy 1 layer of bubble wrap with just a cheap cardboard box for protection and does not contain a SATA Cable or any packaging of any sort. I have received books from Flipkart which were packaged way better than this. The first disk I ordered was dead on arrival.

Good Perfomane but not very Reliable.

Fahad, flipkart.com

  • Summary: Bought it on 9-4-2013. Was working fine until a few days ago. The Hard Disk started showing some issues a few days back. The computer freezes for a few seconds and sometimes i had to restart the system. Sometimes when booting , the BIOS shows error for the Hard Disk. Its hardly been a year since I bought it and already the HDD is at the end of its life.

Not great as a main drive

Tee, Amazon

  • Summary: These drives are low performers, and by all account here they don't compensate with reliability (as of writing 12.5% of Amazon reviewers reporting failed drives). This is different to actual failure rate, and according to behardware the overall return rate of this exact model is 2.31% and that's not bad (great is 1.80% for the Samsung SpinPoint F4 EcoGreen 2TB, disaster is 7.53% for the Seagate Barracuda XT 2TB SATA ).

  • Summary: beware if yours drive is damaged. I am a regular customer of flipkart and they never disappointed me but this time i am not impressed, my HDD was only made protected via single layer of bubble wrap along with a regular delivery box. that's it!.. NO original box..nothing. According to me electronic components should be made secure for regular jerks specially for a HDD its really important for customer satisfaction. luckily my HDD was not damaged as i was worried a lot...

Not Worth The Price!! Under Performer.

  • Summary: I bought this from Flipkart almost a year ago and i thought i'd drop in to review this product after using it as my primary drive. If you are a gamer like me and expect this to perform faster than the other variants or other Seagate HDD's then you will be really disappointed, The 'Green' tag is an absolute nuisance, I had more than a few instances where the computer restarted on its own when i left it idle for more than a 15 mins.

Vibrationen gehen gar nicht

ms2, Amazon
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Das mir gelieferte Exemplar war zwar vorbildlich verpackt, jedoch sofort bei Inbetriebnahme war klar, solche Gehäusevibrationen können nicht kompensiert werden. Ein Probeeinbau in das vorgesehene NAS-Gehäuse machte es klar, am Aufstellort brummte die ganze Tischplatte mit. Ich betone, es handelt sich sicher nur um ein exemplarisches Problem, denn diese Modell wird sehr häufig gerade auch als NAS-HDD verwendet, insofern hatte ich nur Pech.

Keine Begeisterung

hud, Amazon
2 February 2013
  • Summary: Habe meine Platte erst mal erfolgreich dem stundenlangen Testprogramm von der WD-Homepage ausgesetzt. Die Platte kam nach Aufspielen von Daten fortan nie zur Ruhe, obwohl sie unter Windows 7 nicht als Betriebssystemplatte, sondern nur als Datenplatte verwendet wurde. Alle paar Sekunden Zugriffe, die definitv nicht vom Betriebssystem ausgingen (Überprüfung im Ressourcenmonitor).

Ganska dålig

  • Summary: Köpte för mindre än tvÃ¥ Ã¥r sedan 5 diskar av föregÃ¥ngaren (WD20EARS) till den här modellen för att använda 4 st i ett RAID5 set + att ha en som spare. Nu har 2 av diskarna kraschat med ca 2 veckors mellanrum och en tredje har börjat fÃ¥ fel. Jag skulle inte vÃ¥ga använda dessa diskar utan redundans.
