I'll still buy WD

Douglas H., Newegg
21 January 2014
  • Summary: I'm about to do a warranty RMA. WD warranties are good. I was using it primarily as a backup drive but I did have a bit of data that I hadn't backed up in a while due to building/transferring files from a new build. I had roughly 300GB that I wanted to recover.
  • Pros: Worked well, until.....
  • Cons: Failed after ~1.5 years. I used to buy a mix of WD and Seagate, but I've come to the conclusion that Seagate has more reliability issues than WD. This drive died a slow death.

Drive is showing some oddities over time

Vincent J., Newegg
11 May 2013
  • Summary: Continuing to monitor and review this product to determine why there seems to be a performance hits even with latest SATA/SAS controller software and Drivers while configured as a straight non RAID standalone drive.
  • Pros: The size of the drive is a nice offering for archives and backups. The drive runs cool and very quiet. The drive responds well to hot-swapping on SATA as well as SAS interfaces
  • Cons: Over time I have noticed this dive growing slower and slower to the point that it seems that backups stand still. I am not running this drive as part of a RAID set but as a standalone drive on a raid connection. While other WD Blue and Blacks show their full speeds this drive for some reason is r...

  • Pros: Cheaply priced, decent size
  • Cons: Alot.
