Failure rate too high
21 August 2014
Summary: I had other WD drives before and either the built quality is bad or I was just unlucky. The drive failed within 2 years. I replaced it with a Seagate that was much larger and seems more reliable.
Summary: This is the second internal hard drive I have purchased from Western Digital and is the second one that has failed both worked for about a year or so and then the "clicking" came and apparently that means it is no longer any good due to an internal failure. unfortunate.
Summary: This drive died within about 2 years of ordinary use (bad sectors, and files getting corrupted during any large file transfer). I had bought this to use as a backup drive in an enclosure, and it failed just as fast or faster than the one that came with my Lenovo ThinkPad (for which SMART reported failure; CHKDSK would freeze).

Summary: This was the only thing on myy son's wish lilst this year (usually it is all books, movies, & TV shows) and he did get things besides this. But this he really wanted and with which he was very pleased!! Though he wasn't very suprised on Christmas morning, I could read the joy on his face.
Summary: Works great and was easy to install-- with help from the internet, some small screwdrivers, and guidance from a knowledgable friend. Now my very old laptop is still usable for years to come. (It's a 17" Macbook, which they don't make anymore; drat!
Summary: So my other drive in my dell laptop said imminent hard drive failure (quite bummed about this as it was not even 2 years old)..I went to staples..They wanted over 150.00 to replace the drive..A friend said it was petty straightforward and sent me a video..I purchased this drive (exact same one my laptop had) and it arrived very quickly. Was packaged nicely and box was not damaged (i know this is of concern since it is a fragile piece of equipment)..
Summary: I bought this harddisk a couple of years ago to replace the 160GB harddisk that came as default in my Macbook pro 4,1. I found it to be a bit sluggish, but I was able to live with it for the sake of expanded storage space. Recently however, the harddisk has started emitting loud whirring sounds as if it is on the verge of breaking down. I am surprised especially since my laptop nearly never leaves the table on which it is placed much less subject to rough usage.
