great HDD for the price

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: I have not had any issues I use 2 of these in an HP Workstation Z200 in a RAID 0 configuration and they read/write very fast with no problems. Only down side is that they are small only 250GB (combined one 500Gb drive in my configuration) they are great for video editing
  • Cons: Only 250GB

Failed on initial use

Mark B., Newegg

  • Summary: I tried to save money. Mistake. This refurbished drive would only partition out to 18gb....not the 250 it is supposed to be. Have attempted to drop & recreate partions and/or reformat to no avail.
  • Pros: Price.
  • Cons: Failure on 1st use.

Like even though one failed in warranty.

  • Summary: I tend to try to choose hard drives for features that seem to increase longevity even if I have to sacrifice some performance. I bought two devices. Unfortunately, one of them failed - though glad to say, it failed during warranty. WD did ok by me. They replaced that drive with a 750GB unit. I'm not sure whether to look at the drive failure as an indication of product-line quality problems or not, but I still like the drive.

Western Digital The Only Trust Worthy Drive

Ron Atkinson, Amazon
25 September 2013
  • Summary: I build computers and have tried many drives. The only drive I have found that lasts and is reliable is the Western Digital Brand. I use the smaller 250GB drive as a boot drive and this does the job perfectly.

great storage drive

Billy H., Newegg

  • Summary: never had to install a partition on a hard drive just to get windows to recognize it. But hey, whatever works i guess, lol.
  • Pros: works well for a storage drive. Hadnt had any problems out of it yet. write pretty quick, doesnt hang up like my other hard drive
  • Cons: had to create a partition on the hard drive before i could save anything on it. I could pick the drive up fine, just couldnt see it in windows. Had to boot up my windows 7 cd and install a partition on it before i could save anything to it...and then i still had to format the drive in windows 7 before it came online. first time i ever had to do that, but at least i got it to working.

  • Summary: This HD was designed for audio/video use. Maybe not good for computer use but it is excellent as a video recorder.
  • Pros: Excellent HD for the money. Very quiet and smooth running. Also runs cool.
  • Cons: None so far.
