Installed in 2008, Still running perfectly.

Robert E., Newegg
14 January 2016
  • Summary: It seems a lot of drives that have a lot of 4 & 5 star reviews also have a lot of 1 stars with the complaint that the drive failed quickly. With my experience of having this drive run for 7+ years it seems that the construction of a reliable drive is hit-or-miss even from the best manufacturers.
  • Pros: This drive has been perfect. I haven't even had to think about it since I installed it (other than knowing that all HDD need a backup!)
  • Cons: None. Now I want the same product with more disk space and cache.

  • Summary: Been a WD fan for long time, and this drive just reinforced that loyalty. Sad to see it go, but it doesn't owe me a thing.
  • Pros: Drive lasted just over 9 years, in several different machines.
  • Cons: None that I can remember.
