WD Drives may have firmware issues

Chip P., Newegg
27 September 2011
  • Summary: I started having problems, slow booting, etc.. Ran everything I could think of to speed the boot process. It wasn't programs running / starting. It was the drive having issues reading, and not report it. Finally I ran a 'chkdsk c: /r' and found the issues...
  • Pros: Largest capacity internal hard drive commercially available for older laptops with IDE / PATA / ATA / EIDE hard disk interfaces.
  • Cons: I've had SEVERAL of these get corrupted with read errors - NO WARNING, not even SMART ERRORS. I've had 2 320GB PATA Drives die now, and at least one 250GB SATA laptop hard disk (WD2500BEVT) all jut start having read errors, and the internal SMART didn't fix it, or warn me. (Yes I turned it on)...

We will se how the second one holds up.....

Dale M., Newegg
9 July 2010
  • Summary: I did send this Drive back to WD on an RMA and they sent me a new drive about two weeks latter. It did cost me $10 dollars for shipping and another $90 for the 250G replacement drive because I could not have this thing down for over two weeks because of the business I am in.
  • Pros: At the time I had to get a drive the same day and Best Buy was running a sale that was cheaper then new Egg at the time. I always normally go to New Egg for stuff but this had to be fixed ASAP and the price was right. The drive installed perfectly and worked well for 10 months....
  • Cons: I was doing some work on about the tenth month of what would be light use for this drive because i normally use my Desktop computer most of the time and the Lap top is basically a back up computer. On the tenth month I heard a clank in the computer and the computer went black and tried to reboot....

  • Excerpt: Значит дела такие, есть у меня старый ноут Асус, всем устраивает, только хард там на 60 гигов, решил воткнуть хард поболее, фильмы качать и все такое... Первое время все нормально, радовался, аж в пять раз больше дискового пространства у меня )))!
  • Pros: Самый большой по объему IDE-шный винт.
  • Cons: Надежность (сужу по своему экземпляру)
