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...

Counterfeit!!!!

Jerry, Amazon
19 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought 2 of these back in October of 2011 and they never really seemed to have the performance they were supposed to. Well one finally failed and when I contacted Western Digital, I was told they are not real WD drive but a counterfeit. I sure hope Amazon stands behind their products..

Fake WD drive sold by Electronica Direct

Jerry Scoggins, Amazon
27 May 2013
  • Summary: At first all was good with the drive. But when it started having problems I contacted Western Digital for an RMA, only to discover the drive was a fake and not manufactured by WD. I never tested the performance, but the firmware and the case looked correct. What a shock it was a fake!

Dead after 3 months

Anonymous, Newegg
7 May 2013
  • Pros: Fast drive while it worked. It was used in a web server that served basic content files over an intranet.
  • Cons: After 3 months, Event Viewer was flooded with drive errors claiming bad sectors. Thankfully, we added a new drive and moved the data, 2 days later it died. Replacing it with another WD product but hopefully the 1TD red edition will have better reliability. I would not trust this hard drive with a...

Faulty drive

Roman, Newegg
25 January 2013
  • Pros: got the drive..
  • Cons: After my 5yo HDD had crashed I got it as a replacement. Old HP desktop with old BIOS complained about the faulty drive before the BIOS showed up. I was unable to run chkdisk, it failed. Under linux disk check was no errors that confused me a lot.. On another linux desktop it was shown as faulty d...

Received broken

Martin M., Newegg
29 May 2012
  • Pros: I have the 300GB HD and been running great last 4 years. Wish to increase my capacity with a new 600GB.
  • Cons: I received the HD with the data connection pin broken off. I found the plastic that covers the copper connections in the shipping bag. RMA to Newegg and denied stating I broke it off. Strange, the connector only goes on one way. Thanks for not helping Newegg
