Product may be good, but we will never know

bch53007, Amazon
13 February 2013
  • Summary: This was packaged very poorly. The hard drive was just chucked into a larger box and sealed. There was no bubble wrap, air cushion packets, paper, or anything to cushion and protect the hard drive during shipment. We figured it wasn't going to work when we saw this, but installed it to be sure. Surprise, surprise! It was broken and nonfunctional. Returned it and will be ordering from elsewhere rather than exchanging it for another.

Unreliable

Amazon Customer, Amazon
26 October 2011
  • Summary: Expensive, relatively mediocre performance (as compared to other platter drives, greatly outperformed by SSDs) and worst of all, unreliable. The first drive I received was DOA. After returning it, the replacement lasted for about 6 months before dying completely as well. Just get a regular platter drive and save some money, or go for an SSD for performance.

Pointless Review

Mr Jim Wilde, Amazon
25 January 2012
  • Summary: Just to comment on Bronski's review. Absolutely pointless. Why on earth wouldn't you at least try the drive, instead of just sending it back without testing. There was prob nothing at all wrong with it. These sort of reviews are of no help at all for anyone looking to buy a product. Hard drives these days do not need 6 inches of titanium packaging... and are quite capable of taking any knocks that any clumsy UPS guy might afford them!!

WD VelociRaptor 600GB

Bronski, Amazon
21 May 2011
  • Summary: Had waited for ages for the price of this drive to drop to £155 in line with ebuyer, when it did, I snapped one up due to the fact I perfer amazon to ebuyer. Was horrified when the drive arrived in just its anti-static bag and then put in one of amazons wrap around packs. Didnt even bother to try the drive, sent it right back to amazon and got a refund. Wasnt going to risk my data on a drive that may well have suffered knocks and bangs.

Schnell und verdammt laut

Steven, Amazon
15 June 2012
  • Summary: Schnell ist sie. Aber für das Geld und in 2012 so extrem laut zu sein ist wirklich schon fast eine Frechheit. Das zusammen mit Windows, das ständig irgendwas auf der Platte macht, ist eine nahezu unterträgliche Kombination. Ich werde die Platte zwar behalten aber als Windows Systemplatte kann ich sie aufgrund der Geräuschentwicklung beim besten willen nicht empfehlen. Allerdings mag ich nicht nur pöbeln, daher...

User Review

  • Excerpt: Купил по принципу самое крутое и дорогое. Использовал под файлопомойку. Под систему установил SSD. Проработал три дня и сдох. Стал завистать на скандиске и пропадать из системы через минуту после загрузки. Сдал обратно - приняли, вернули деньги. Программа Виктория показывала что он весь в битых секторах. Тем не менее завтра пойду покупать новый - буду надеяться что это мне просто бракованный экземпляр попался.
  • Pros: Высокая скорость
  • Cons: Крайне низкая надежность (видимо не повезло)
