My Drive Caught on fire.

Mir, Amazon
7 February 2013
  • Summary: I got this drive from a friend so already i don't have a warranty. I put the hard drive into a known working external hard drive enclosure. this enclosure holds the drive upside down for reasons i will not delve into. When i turned the enclosure on the circuit board started smoking, after less than a second the foam under layer between the hard drive circuit board and the drive itself caught on fire and i did have some flames.

NOT for a MacBook

Catherine G. McCarthy, Amazon
19 March 2011
  • Summary: I just received this today (3/19/2011) and sadly I am going to have to return it. I bought this because someone posted a review stating that they installed it into their MacBook; however, I should have read the specs regarding the size. This will absolutely NOT fit into a MacBook, so don't buy this for that purpose.

it self-destructed killed my PC

Jack, Amazon
14 April 2010
  • Summary: This hard drive has short-circuited as soon as I turned on the power, with a distinct smell of burning electrical wires. What is worse, it has also killed the motherboard of the computer it was connected to. Upon a second test, it has released white smoke from the area of the power connector. Now I'm stuck with a dead computer. Thanks, Western Digital!
