Summary: I have filed an RMA with WD. The 2 eggs reflect the good warranty policy (5 years), otherwise it would have been the minimum 1 egg.
Pros: Nice price point. Good warranty.
Cons: I used it in an external enclosure as backup. I make monthly backups. That is, I used this drive 20+ times. I do not think that this drive has been up more than 100 hours. Yesterday it died on me.
Summary: This is the only Western Digital product I have EVER had an issue with. Luckily I had just acquired a MacBook Pro for school, so it wasn't the end of the world. Sadly, my Seagate 3TB external became corrupted(and has since done it again) about 2 weeks later. So everything was lost because I was too passive in transferring files.
Summary: I bought this hard drive 2 months ago. At first it was great, though the 7200RPM didn't seem to make a lot of difference from the 5400 RPM drive I had earlier. Recently, (after 2 months) the hard drive started freezing up, at which point a forced restart is required. It squeals and beeps and crashes at which point you have to send it back for repairs with packaging that costs a lot of money.
Summary: I was unable to get this to work. Better instructions would be helpful for less computer literate people such as myself. Physical fitting is easy, but I was unable to get my computer to set it up.
Excerpt: Купил для макбука [macbook] (стандартно стоит винт на 5400) — дак вот новый винт сильно шумнее старого. Я и прокладки под него делал, не помогает ни фига. Учитывая что сам макбук абсолютно тихий, то винт бесит очень сильно. Возможно это проблема всех семитысячников, других не прробовал. Так что поменяю на пятитысячник.
