BAD DRIVE after TWO MONTHS. WARRANTY EXPIRED WAY BEFORE I PURCHASED THIS DRIVE. Beware buying from this seller.
Grabber Blue Mustang, Amazon
22 December 2014
Summary: Bought this drive, and it failed within a couple months. I go to get help at Western Digital and the Warranty Expried in 2/2014. Bad drive and out of warranty. Hopefully, this seller makes it right.
Summary: This drive is an OEM/bulk drive with a manufacturer date from 2011. I installed it and cloned my old C: drive to it with no issues. 4 days later my computer crashed and the drive indicated bad sectors. I attempted recovery, but the sectors were not repairable.
Summary: Windows wouldn't install on it. Files corrupted or something during installation multiple times. Installed windows an another HDD. This HDD wasn't recognized by windows when it was installed on another HDD.
Summary: It's not Caviar Blue, it's Caviar SE,it's different what you see in advertised image, received 2 different styles one was made 2005 and other was made in 2008 I haven't check hard drives yet but hope they are new never used
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.
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.
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!
