Be cautious of this dealer.

James P. Landis, Amazon

  • 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.

Never Buy WD Again

Christopher T., Newegg
31 May 2011
  • 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.

Waited too late

Michael F., Newegg
27 March 2011
  • 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.
  • Pros: None
  • 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.
