LOUD 3/5 Eggs

Paul B., Newegg
23 December 2014
  • Pros: Good drive from WD, worked fine but was just too loud for my liking.
  • Cons: Very loud, maybe i just got a bad one? If you can afford an ssd, go that route. If noise isn't an issue for you, pick this up.

Second RMA

Clint J., Newegg
19 October 2013
  • Summary: Will will wait for the 3rd hard drive and hopefully it will be fine. Something to note I ordered two hard drives and one of them is perfectly fine (the mailer had all its air).
  • Pros: I know this is a good hard drive that has a wonderful 5 year warranty with Western Digital. However see cons below.
  • Cons: Newegg has switched to a new air mailer for hard drives. This is my second RMA with the same drive and both times I have received it one side of the mailer was flat so the hard drive would have took any bumps on that side. There was no other packing material in the box. Please Newegg fix this shi...

  • Summary: Брать только для потоковых данных, игр, фильмов,архивов. В качестве системного Win7 будет некомфортно. Для XP нормально, под Linux только если нервов не жалко.
  • Pros: Довольно тихий, никакой вибрации, средняя скорость на чтение блоками по 1mb 179 мегабайт.
  • Cons: Главнй недостаток низкая скорость доступа 20,5мс. Шелест головок при этом слышен отчётливо. В этой категории диски дешевле дают 14-15 мс.

  • Summary: WD уже не тот
  • Pros: Быстрый, тихий
  • Cons: Проработал 4 часа и затрещал. Успел только ОС поставить, пока настраивал для работы винт умер, пол рабочего дня в пустую. Биос перестал видеть, поеду сдавать.
