Decent and good value.
3 weeks ago
Summary: For this price, a 2TB HDD is a good buy. I've owned it for more than a year now, and no issue worth mentioning. However, my first purchase died after a few weeks of light usage. They gave me a replacement, but not before I lost many precious GBs of data.
Pros: - Large storage space. - Good value. - Still working after a year of intensive use.
Summary: - WD now change all Green Drive to Blue Drive and may or may not have get rid of IntelliPower feature in their new Drive, but if you look closely on the WD website, all Green that converted into Blue Drive have 5400 RPM instead of IntelliPower.
Pros: - I mainly use this for Video/Image (Media) storage - Brought 2 of them, both still work perfectly on extreme light use - Very cheap at the time before discounting the Green Drive - Energy efficient compare to Black Drive
Cons: - Not recommended for Gaming or heavy use - Not really a con, but feature of the Green Drive which go to sleep a lot when not in use, so spinning the drive every time cost a slow down - An Expensive drive selling by third party seller since WD dont carry or make Green Drive anymore
Pros: Good, cheap, power-saving drive. Works well in my RAID setup with 2 other drives of the same model.
Cons: One drive soon started having trouble, failed the SMART check soon after and destroyed my RAID. Unfortunately, Newegg's warranty had expired. Thankfully, WD's RMA policy was a little complicated, but not too bad.
Pros: 2 TB is a ton of space. I've never come close to filling this hard drive and it is definitely durable after moving it through multiple builds and formatting it a countless amount of times with different operating systems.
Summary: I guess the warranty expired a long time ago. This time I went with a WD Black, NIB, 1TB instead of 2TB due to cost. No more refurbs for me.
Pros: I bought this drive in March 2013 as a refurb. The price was good at the time, but it was mostly wishful thinking. I went against my better judgement knowing a refurb HDD was a high risk.
Cons: Over the past month (11/2015) my PC (SageTv HTPC running Win10) started experiencing random crashes/reboots. I used this drive as movie storage only. It turns out that half of the drive has bad sectors.
Pros: I bought this refurbished from Newegg back in March 2013.. Still running strong in December 2015. Always recommend WD in mechanical drives. They took over HGST and solved the problems that they were having too.
Cons: Could have been cheaper but 2TB in March of '13 cost about as much as a 4TB now and I got this for $109.99
Summary: I have used W/D drives for over 20 years. I just retired two IDE 40Gb drives that are over 17 yrs. old that still work. I bought to replace the first and only drive that quit working properly on me. It sorta works but when installed on my new system it made everything real slow.
Pros: Quiet & Cool It's Western Digital... Need I say more? (No!)
