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. It showed up in Disk Management and even My computer, but as "UNFORMATTED". So this can't be reasonably attributed to the motherboard or power.

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. Disk First Aid scans aren't reporting anything wrong with it while the computer is booted, but I've noticed that the drive has taken a marked performance hit, sometimes taking between 15 and 30 seconds to provide directory listings.
  • 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 years.

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. Perhaps the 2 drives were knocked around in shipping but they're designed to absorb significant shock.
  • 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.

  • 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: HÃ¥ller med de tidigare skribenterna. Western digital gör de bästa hÃ¥rddiskarna i min mening! Aldrig varit med om att dem har varit defekta. Tyst, mycket snabbare än Hitachin som satt i min laptop, och strömsnÃ¥l.
