Update - Head-Parking Issue

JONATHAN H., Newegg
20 February 2014
  • Pros: Still love the device as a product. See what I put in my original review.
  • Cons: Taking 2 points off my rating because WD's head parking policy has cause my device to start crashing. Had to install a program to disable the APM feature in order to get it to start working properly again. ACER probably had this feature disabled on my original harddrive from factory, which would explain why I just now started experiencing it.

DOA

Keith J., Newegg

  • Pros: Fast quiet drive, works when not DOA.
  • Cons: Came DOA from NewEgg. Wasn't WD fault, NewEgg packed it poorly . They accepted it back and shipped a new one, in better packing.

Decent

TigerDirect.com
5 June 2012
  • Summary: It's a good HDD if you don't wanna do much with it, but it has really deficient performance. I can't even stream a video online since I put in this drive without the film stuttering. And it's definitely the hard drive, since when I play the same video from a usb it doesn't stutter and plays properly, and when I had my old hard drive, it didn't stutter either. So it's definitely this hard drive.

Good Drive but Beware the Advanced Formatting

G. K. Griffiths, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this drive as a replacement for a failing drive in my Toshiba laptop. Needless to say the new drive fitted perfectly but then I found that my Backup/Restore software would not recognise it. To cut a long story short I managed to initialise/format the drive on a second laptop but my backup/restore software would still not recognise the new drive.
