This drive sucks. I am so surprised

Jered M. Stoehr "Jered S.", Amazon
5 May 2010
  • Summary: I read these reviews and my jaw dropped; I couldn't believe people were having the same problem with this drive. I was so happy when I picked it up; a top name drive for under $100 500gig SATA, not even a month later it crashed. Not worth the deal, I see the price has gone down since I bought it...

Failed!

David J. Atkinson "David", Amazon
2 May 2010
  • Summary: I have to agree with the first reviewer - this is the worst drive I have had in terms of reliability. It failed after only a few months of operation. Luckily, it was part of a mirrored RAID set and the other drive is still functioning perfectly. Recommend you avoid this drive.

Worst drives I've ever bought

A. Smith, Amazon
28 April 2010
  • Summary: I initially bought one of these for a quiet PC. Because it was quiet and I never had problems with my WD 80GB Caviar I bought another. Big mistake. The first one died after a few months. The second one died a month later. The worst part is I trusted the drive and used it to back up a lot of my personal music files. I lost all those. I'm surprised because my WD 80GB Caviar was reliable. Seems they're not focused on quality anymore.

Won't work with Alesis HD24

DJG, Amazon

  • Summary: For some reason the "Caviar Blue" series of WD drives will not work with the Alesis HD24 HD recorder (you will get a HD reset error when attempting to mount the drive). I believe this is the only flavor of Western Digital drive that doesn't work in the HD24--the other "Caviar" series drives work great, just not "Caviar Blue." FYI.

  • Excerpt: Работал ровно год. Умер БМГ. WD-дрянь! Самый частоотказывающий хард - WD! Из всех хардов, работавших в компании отказывали только ВД.
  • Pros: Очень полезно подсунуть врагу.
  • Cons: нельзя доверить ценную информацию
