What a piece of junk!

Brian, Amazon
24 March 2013
  • Summary: I will NEVER purchase the Scorpio Blue hard drive again. It doesn't last long at all. I've went through 2 Scorpio Blues in three months. I didn't download junk or anything that would cause them to stop working. If anyone would like a great hard drive then get a WD Scorpio Black. They're much more dependable.

No Warranty

Dee, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: The item arrived fine, and may or may not have worked, but the hard drive is supposed to come with a 2 year limited warranty. I checked the Western Digital website and entered the serial number to check out the warranty information for myself, but it said that the item had "no limited warranty." I tried to contact the seller, but didn't receive a response.

Seller (TopGear) sold me a drive with no warranty

Brian Vaccaro, Amazon
7 January 2013
  • Summary: I own and operate a computer repair store and purchased this drive from seller TopGear through Amazon for a customer. I purchased it in November 2012. The customer came into my store today and we determined that the hard drive was dead. I said "No Problem, it's covered under warranty." Much to my surprise I check on the warranty status of his less-than-3-month-old hard drive to see that is has absolutely no warranty.

Replacement HD Died to Quick

Col D "Col D", Amazon
2 February 2012
  • Summary: Replaced 80GB HD on my white MacBook 2008 using Lion OS X 10.7.2 with this drive. Quick and easy install; used SuperDuber(Free)to make a bootable copy of the old drive. The image process took about 1 1/2 hours, and only few easy minutes to install. The drive booted up much faster than old one and is working perfectly. Update Mar 2012 just over 30 days and the drive crashed and died. Amazon was great and let me return it.

Disk errors began within 3 days of software installation

W. Gervasi, Amazon
27 March 2009
  • Summary: This was to be the replacement hard disk for my business notebook computer when the original 100GB drive ran out of space. I formatted the drive, installed software, and transferred all data to the new drive. Within 3 days, disk errors began to appear with the error message "Bad block detected; recovering file xyz". On day #6, the computer would no longer boot saying there were errors in the operating system itself.

CRC - Fehler von Anfang an...

Tom_Cookie "cookietom", Amazon
27 April 2014
  • Summary: Habe die Festplatte gekauft weil (obwohl) mir zuvor kurz nach Ablauf der Garantie dieselbe kaputt gegangen war Direkt der erste Formattierungs-(Initialisierungs-)versuch schlug fehl, weil CRC-Fehler angezeigt wurden. Ich bat einen Fachmann um Hilfe, der mir mein Problem leider bestätigte. Leider habe ich mir zu viel Zeit mit dem Einbau gelassen und kann sie nun nicht mehr umtauschen Habe jetzt für 10 € mehr eine von Seagate gekauft und alles läuft wieder prima.
