I returned it for a refund

Summary: I returned it because it was sold as new but when I tried to register it with Western Digital to validate the warranty they said it had no warranty. It was to old. I contacted the seller and arranged a full money back refund. I returned the item to the seller. When you sell items as new they should have a valid manufacture warranty and if they don't they shouldn't be able to sell them as new because they aren't. They might qualify for antique status but not new.
Summary: I've always used Western Digital and only once had a problem, that was quickly taken care of with the Warenty. This was an Exceptional buy because of the Price. Would highly recommend this to anyone not needing mass Storage!
Western Digital will not honor warranty as it is VERY VERY OLD STOCK - Beware

Summary: I have used Amazon and Western Digital products for a very long time because of their customer satisfaction and warranty; but will have to revise my logic after this purchase. These Western Digital drives are "Enterprise Quality" and are supposed to carry a 5 year warranty which is one of the key reasons for using them in business environments.
Summary: After 7 days at most, I started getting S.M.A.R.T errors. Every time I reboot my computer, it goes to a black screen that says "1720-SMART hard drive detects imminent failure". I downloaded the Western Digital lifeguard diagnostics and it said the drive has bad sectors and needs replaced.
Summary: These drives are used in Cisco MCS Servers. There is a firmware bug in the drives for version lower than B06. Corruption. Major failure. Lots of crying. See attached: "Hard drives with model number WD2502ABYS and any firmware lower than 3B06 are affected - they should be upgraded as soon as possible." [...
