Failure rate too high

M, Amazon
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.

Largest upgrade option for any PS3 and laptops that need 2.5"/9.5mm-height SATA HDDs

A. Dent, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • Summary: QUICK EVALUATION The Western Digital 640GB 2.5" SATA is a quiet, reliable, easy to install, drive. The 2.5"/9.5mm SATAs easily and perfectly mount inside a PS3's or laptop's drive bay where they can replace the laptop's or the PS3's original 20-40-60-80-160GB drive or the new PS3 120GB SLIM's without voiding the warranty. Same should hold true for the upcoming PS3's 250GB model. The minor price difference between purchasing a 250GB Slim vs.

died fast, just like my other WD drive did

JonC, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • 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).

2/2 Drive Failures so far

Essential Gadgets, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • Summary: I like WD and usually have great luck with their drives. Unfortunately this drive is a lemon. Bought a new 2010 13.3 MBP (Mac Book Pro). Got this drive to upgrade it so i could run both OSX and Win 7 and have plenty of space for data. 1st drive was problematic out of the box. Many hangs etc. Ran WD's diags off the website - drive failed the quick test. Ordered another one from amazon and they refunded me the money on this one.

Works well when it's not going bad...

SIFTER, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • Summary: Unfortunately for Western Digital, their quality standards seem to have gone down quite a bit. The Scorpio Blue drive is a good performer: fast, generally pretty quiet, and not very hot. It also did not affect my system's power performance at all. It was easy to install, and it's quite light. So what's the problem? Quality. Within six months, it had developed bad sectors and I had lost some of my data without even realizing it.

Poorly Packed - Not Ideal for MacBook Pro

Duane S. Hawkins, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • Summary: Was rattling around in the box, when received. Seems to be okay, but still... On another note: Requires a command-line hack to disable hard drive APM in MacBook Pro 2010; otherwise, it parks the heads every 30 seconds or so, leading to irritating pauses and shortening drive life.
