Re: WD Failures

  • Summary: This is a reply to the previous review replying to my earlier review. I apologize for the bad formatting. I pasted it from notepad but forgot to remove the line breaks beforehand. If this is not clear in my original review, I want to reemphasize it: The drive didn't "disappear" as you have read it.

Worked well for several years

Anonymous, Newegg
3 January 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this drive for installation into my 2009 Mac Mini; it worked flawlessly up until about Thanksgiving of this year, when it began an awful clacking noise at seemingly random intervals.
  • Pros: Reasonably fast speed, appears to be failing gracefully, and pretty good price to performance, long warranty
  • Cons: Concerns about long-term reliability

Failed after 3 years

Ryan Y., Newegg
18 November 2012
  • Pros: Fast, quiet. Used to replace OEM Seagate drive in HP laptop that failed after 2 years. 5 YEAR WARRANTY
  • Cons: Failed after 3 years -- getting replaced through warranty. Hopefully this one will last longer. Laptop doesn't get much more use than just checking email, Facebook, etc. Can't believe the drive failed in only 3 years. I have other drives that I do much more with that have been going strong for 10...

Two bad drives

Patrick E., Newegg
13 August 2012
  • Summary: As I resell the drives I contacted WD was told they'd send two new drives but sent two recertified drives. I called them again and they paid to return the drives and shipped me two 750GB black new drives.
  • Pros: 7200RPM & 5 yr warranty
  • Cons: Ordered two drives on same invoice. Both drives failed WD diagnostic test, one due to SMART failure & the other had bad sectors. RMA'd to WD and rec'd two recertified drives.

"RECERTIFIED" Western Digital Scorpio Black WD3200BEKT

RAYMOND P., Newegg
13 December 2011
  • Summary: There's no good excuse for this drive having such a bad warantee.
  • Pros: Low price. A very nice drive, at least, when it's brand new - but, it's NOT brand new.
  • Cons: 90 DAY WARRANTEE ! If it's factory "recertified", why doesn't it carry a full 3 year warantee like the new drives ?

  • Excerpt: Поменял на него стоковый 5400 rpm в macbook pro, попользовался несколько месяцев и сменил на 500 Гб 5400 rpm — замучил шум + прилично уменьшилось время автономной работы. Сейчас стоит в USB боксе, делаю на него бэкап ноута жены.
  • Pros: Скорость
  • Cons: Шум, энергопотребление

Ganska bra

  • Summary: Håller med de tidigare skribenterna. Western digital gör de bästa hårddiskarna i min mening! Aldrig varit med om att dem har varit defekta. Tyst, mycket snabbare än Hitachin som satt i min laptop, och strömsnål.
