Summary: I bought this as issued new. Turns out it was manufactured on 12/16/2010. The drive showed up quickly which was great. The main problem is it was a bad drive out of the box. So it does not work. I should have read the reviews as several other customers have reported the same.
BAD DRIVE after TWO MONTHS. WARRANTY EXPIRED WAY BEFORE I PURCHASED THIS DRIVE. Beware buying from this seller.

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.
Summary: I have some really old hard drives from seagate and they always work. Im sure every company has there problems but after many drive purchases i will not buy another WD. And they so called upgrade vs replacement hard drive on warranty was the part that pushed me over the edge.
Pros: Well why they work there ok.
Cons: Have bought 5 WD hard drives and so far 4 failed within 2yrs and one 6mnths after the 3yr warranty ran out.
Summary: I waited several months to even open the package and use the drive so now I must do the warranty thing, better test the drives so you can RMA to Newegg.
Cons: It was louder than other drives the first use, but did not think anything of it. I transferred dozens of movies onto it as a storage drive because my other one was getting too full. It did not work again, so I lost all those movies.
