Lasted just under 3 years

  • Summary: Just had a repeat customer bring their PC to me for repairs. Turns out the hard drive failed. I checked my order history and the drive wasn't even 3 years old. I expected better from Western Digital. I see there are alot of refurbs of this drive for sale now. I'm thinking this particular model was prone to failure.
  • Pros: Decent bang for the buck.
  • Cons: Didn't even last 3 years.

hit or miss

  • Summary: Purchased in October, so perhaps quality of manufacturing was compromised by Thailand flooding. Will replace.
  • Pros: Extremely quiet, formatted and worked perfectly for 4 months.
  • Cons: 2 bad clusters after only 4 months. Bad sectors corrupted my Windows 7 profile as well.

Not impressed

Jordan B., Newegg
23 June 2011
  • Summary: I am also not pleased that I have to pay return shipping after I already paid to have them overnighted and it is out of my control that the drive arrived defective.
  • Pros: Arrived fast since I overnighted the drives. Of the two that I ordered one worked fine.
  • Cons: I paid to overnight these drives to replace a failed drive in my RAID and one of them started reporting errors within minutes of installing it. Within the first hour that drive wasn't visible to the system at all. Now I have to pay to ship it back.

  • Summary: - bei mir hat die western digital nur 6 jahre gehalten. ich bin jetzt auf seagate umgestiegen. western digital sollen nach tests zu urteilen die besten festplatten herstellen, ich hatte wohl das schwarze schaaf der familie erworben.

leider Enttäuscht

J. Schindler "Filmekucker", Amazon

  • Summary: Habe mir diese Festplatte auf Grund der Rezessionen gekauft. Die Platte wurde ja als leise bezeichnet. Die Zugriffsgeräusche sind leise aber man hört ein leises schleifendes Geräusch und die Platte vibriert so das mein PC Gehäuse brummt obwohl die Festplatteneinschübe entkoppelt sind. Die Platte wurde von Amazon getauscht aber selbst die Ersatzplatte die ein anderes Herstellerdatum hat vibriert genauso.
