8 July 2015
  • Pros: we all know the pros!
  • Cons: After a little over a year the drive is bad. Smart errors and is not bootable. My problem is not with the drive! Drives fail I understand that and have had good luck with the velociraptor drives. It is the customer service from Western digital. The drive is under warranty but they do not have the...

limited use, at this point

Scott B., Newegg
7 January 2015
  • Summary: Nothing got hit harder by the advent of SSD than the upper end of the HDD market. The Raptor is a terrific device, but can't be seriously considered on a price/performance basis anymore. You're only buying this as a 1:1 replacement for a failed device.
  • Pros: Still one of the fastest mechanical storage solutions.
  • Cons: Still a mechanical storage solution.

  • Pros: Very fast Great company, so hoping it will be reliable Got mine for a great price
  • Cons: None

WD has not improved!

RICHARD C., Newegg
9 August 2014
  • Summary: They don't last. They die fast. Get Seagate or Samsung.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: I never had any luck with WD products. They never lasted, and always had short life spans. I thought all that changed, and WD improved over the years. Boy was I wrong! I purchased this Velocraptor on 11/09/2012 from Newegg for the speed and the long 5 year warranty. This hard drive took a dump wi...

Extremely Good Drive

John K., Newegg
6 August 2014
  • Summary: 10K speeds make this a great workstation and gaming drive. That's what I've been using it for the past 1 1/2 years and it's been great.
  • Pros: I've had this drive for a year and a half now and I've beat the absolute you know what out of it. Multiple OS installs, corrupt OS installs, Windows 8, constant formatting, and taxing usage has not done anything to this drive. It still runs like a charm and at the same as when I bought it.
  • Cons: None whatsoever.

Died after 3 years of use

Jess W., Newegg
18 July 2014
  • Pros: Great when it works. Perfect for RAIDing on a file server.
  • Cons: Seagate always seems to outlast Western Digital in Hard Drive life. Like other WD drives, this one did not last as long as it could have.
