on my 3rd

Leonard J., Newegg
23 March 2012
  • Summary: This is a good storage drive, not a good OS drive. I am just now sending in my 2nd drive to get my 3rd RMA of this model. Western Digitals RMA process is simple and fast, so that's the only reason I gave it 2 stars!
  • Pros: -RMA process is good -plenty of space for multiple OS installs
  • Cons: -not reliable -5400RPM is slow

Died after 8 months

John A., Newegg
8 December 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to replace the drive in my son's Sony VAIO. I chose this drive because it was the same model that shipped with the Laptop when we bought it. The original drive lasted 16 months and the replacement only lasted 8 months so I am begining to think this drive not very durable.
  • Pros: Was cheap when I bought it. Worked great out of the box.
  • Cons: Only lasted 8 months.

Dead within a week

Nathan E., Newegg
6 May 2011
  • Summary: The RMA process was quick and painless, but unfortunately I had already wasted hours on the installation.
  • Pros: It worked for a couple days.
  • Cons: Purchased this to replace a Seagate drive that had the "click of death". I've always used WD drives in the past and didn't even look at another manufacturers' product when making my selection. I spent a couple hours reinstalling the OS, all the updates, programs, printers, etc and the drive seeme...

Not so hot

  • Summary: It was defective on arrival. I tried several times to format it and it just wouldn't work. I had to send it back. I bought another one at a local dealer and it took the format on the first try. I think this one was just a bad apple.

24 months of trouble free use...

  • Summary: If you're happy with your HDD in your laptop only lasting 2 years then I can recommend this drive wholeheartedly! If you'd rather it last a longer, I suggest trying another drive and manufacturer. I don't see much point in people 5*'ing stuff having only owned it a few weeks.

  • Excerpt: У меня уже собралась целая коллекция (четыре диска) этой модели от друзей и знакомых. Три диска умерли после 1-2 лет не особо активной эксплуатации. Один прожил 3 года, но всё равно накрылся в итоге.
  • Pros: Дешёвый, относительно экономичный
  • Cons: Не особенно быстрый, низкая надёжность, иногда шумит

  • Excerpt: В двух ноутбуках ACER, купленных с интервалом в несколько лет, стояли именно эти накопители. Результат - один вышел из строя через год, другой прожил год и три месяца. К счастью, с помощью R-studio удалось восстановить большую часть информации, но покупать данное устройство не рекомендую...
  • Pros: Сохраняет информацию.
  • Cons: Быстро умирает.
