Do Not use for PS3

Robert Z., Newegg
16 March 2011
  • Summary: Sent WD a RMA request for a hard drive replacement, will probably never purchase an OEM hard drive again
  • Pros: Low Price
  • Cons: - Poor Quality - I had to reformat my PS3 multiple times due to system file corruption; several PS3 games, including Killzone III and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, often stutter, lock up and crash the game/system; seems that the PS3 has a difficult time reading/writing to this hard drive;

2/2 Drive Failures so far

Essential Gadgets, Amazon
23 February 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.

Not so good on my MacBook Pro (2008)

Michael K., Newegg
5 February 2011
  • Summary: If you own a MacBook Pro, ask around before you buy this one. I do not recommend this one for MacBook Pro 2008 users because of the drive sleep issue.
  • Pros: Affordable. Lots of capacity. WD is a brand I have heard lots of good things about over the years. They are always near or at the top of the list for reliable drive recommendations among Mac users.
  • Cons: In my MacBook Pro 15" (early 2008), this drive is spinning down and parking the heads almost constantly. The drive goes into sleep mode regardless of my energy saver prefs. I have turned off "spin down disks," etc. Apparently other MBP users have run into this with WD internal drives, based on so...

noisy, slow, but lots of space

Jeff G., Newegg
10 January 2011
  • Summary: I prefer WD drives, but avoid this one.
  • Pros: Lots of space in a small package
  • Cons: Drive is noisy, clicks and pings often. I RMAed the first one because of the pinging noise and noticeable system slowdowns. The replacement is doing the same thing. I'm not sure if the entire drive line is like that or if I got two bad ones in a row.

DO NOT BUY!!!

Jake M., Newegg
8 January 2011
  • Summary: 3/3 failures and changing warranty terms... I used to like WD drives, but my confidence is shaken. DO NOT BUY!
  • Pros: 640GB at a reasonable price, NOT the Advanced Format Technology.
  • Cons: Failure prone... I've had 3/3 fail! First drive failed after three months. RMA's that drive, replacement failed after two weeks. RMA'd that drive, installed the replacement, ran WD's Data Lifeguard utility ASAP and this third drive is bad. WD's solution is to send me a fourth! Further, the origin...

Not so good

Steve Schultze "Steve", Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: I brought this product so, like everyone, to have more storage, but the drive is not always found, it was not so easy to install, and very confusing. If I could return it I would.
