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.

died fast, just like my other WD drive did

JonC, Amazon

  • 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).

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.

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.

если тормоза устраняються, то веник нормальный, а если нет, то лучше не брать

андрей, Onliner
4 August 2010
  • Summary: Винт тормозит. Тормоза следующие: снимаешь фильм с паузы - задержка изображения, любое обращение к венику (к информации на венике) происходит с задержкой. Я имею в виду именно эту модель с секторами в 512 б. Стоит хр сп2, нтфс, остальное железо не тормознутое. До этого винта стоял хитачи , все работало без тормозов.
  • Pros: только объем
  • Cons: тормоза, маленький буфер
