Was OEM HDD and failed before 2 years

Rohan, Newegg
4 May 2014
  • Summary: I would say anyone interested in this WD HDD... save your money and buy a different brand. This HDD is not safe for your data, and could fail anytime.
  • Pros: The drive was quite, I have to give them that.... but this is where the "Pros" Stop
  • Cons: So this HDD came with my HP over 2 years ago... not even a year after I bought the PC I started having issues with this HDD... after dragging it for several months.. The computer stared having all type of loading issues and crashes ( I restored the OS at least 10 times). I am a advance PC user so...

James W., Newegg
6 February 2014
  • Pros: when the drive is working it works fine, but there are some problems with it as it age's
  • Cons: so the drive just stopped working one day and was making some bad sounds. since mine was out of warranty i opened it up to see what went wrong. so when it tried to part the heads there is this plastic guide to allow the heads to move off the platter when it powers off. good idea... but the plasti...

Dies After Almost 3 Years

Richard S., Newegg
6 August 2012
  • Summary: Western Digital is good, but this hard drive is a miss for them.
  • Pros: 320GB space Western Digital in general is a great company
  • Cons: This hard drive was found in my MSI CR600 laptop. After three years of use, I was hearing unusual clicks coming from it. That is the click of death and the worst death when it comes to hard drives. I knew the end was coming so I had to back it up in a hurry.

User Review

Anonymous, Newegg
6 April 2012
  • Summary: Tried with wddidle3 - /d /s300 - nothing worked. Drive becomes irresponsible and w7 wouldn't even start. Replacing the original APM configuration fixed the issue =P WD doesn't care.. and so people should care avoiding to buy this products.
  • Pros: working good so far with a very high smarts LLC count... going to crash first or later
  • Cons: Makes high clicking noise when goes in idle to park the heads since day1. Really annoying as it happens after 8secs of inactivity. Avoid WD drives. Their intellipark 'feature' =P is the worst nightmare ever.

Two Drives Purchased: Both Failed - follow up

Daniel D., Newegg
8 February 2012
  • Summary: Keeping my fingers crossed.
  • Pros: Newegg customer service, and the positive reviews of the drive here, are why I am buying a third drive for my PS3 and hoping that it will be the one that works. Third time is the charm, right?
  • Cons: One drive DOA, one failed within hours. A third one has been ordered.

Two Drives Purchased: Both Failed

Daniel D., Newegg
3 February 2012
  • Summary: I see that a good number of people had sucess with putting the drive in their PS3, and at least one didn't. I am considering giving the drive a third try (it's still on sale until Feb 9), but ONLY because of how well I have been treated by Newegg's customer service.
  • Pros: Newegg stood behind what it sold and I received a refund (be mindfull of the time limits for RMA, only 30 days when I purchased). Price on sale was $80.
  • Cons: Got this WD Scorpio HD to upgrade PS3 from 80 GB to 320 GB. The first WD Scorpio was DOA, wouldn't format. Got a RMA. Received replacement WD Scorpio. It formated but failed same day. Wouldn't reformat. Thank goodness Newegg gave me another RMA and says it will refund my money.

These drives are USED

24 January 2012
  • Summary: These drives are not new but are "recertified". That means someone else has returned them to Western Digital and now they are being resold.

Drive died within 2 months

Vartan I., Newegg
5 January 2012
  • Summary: In June-2011, I installed the 80GB drive, as an upgrade, in a perfectly working D510 laptop, transferred an image and it worked fine for the first month. Starting the second month, the drive started generating errors and soon, the drive suddenly died displaying the blue screen every time I restarted...
  • Pros: WD name. Also, the drive was on sale.
  • Cons: The drive died within 2 months of light use. I did not bother sending it back for repair because of time and cost consideration.

2nd dead wd hdd in less than 3 yrs

Christopher S., Newegg
28 December 2011
  • Summary: This is the second WD drive I've owned recently that survived less than three years. The other was a caviar 3.5" drive. If I were buying drives for mirrored RAID I would probably take the gamble on Western Digital drives but as single drives for laptops I'm swearing off WD completely.
  • Pros: Decent speed and size
  • Cons: Died suddenly in less than two years
