Summary: Honestly I haven't had any problems with WD hard drives and I hope me typing that doesn't jinx anything! They've been sturdy little work horses but I also don't use them on a constant basis - I use them as swappables for storing photo archives on. I haven't had any arrive DOA nor have they kicked the bucket on me so I'll keep with them!
Summary: I discovered one of my hard drives in RAID 1 (mirror) was bad and finding the exact same drive that was installed in a 4 year old computer wasn't so easy. Western Digital discontinued it about 6 months ago. I managed to find the exact same drive on Amazon so I bought 2 in case I have another hard drive go bad. so far so good...it either functions properly or it doesn't, right?
Summary: This review comes very late but it still doesn't change the fact that this hard drive is utterly useless. This item was purchased to serve as a slave in April 2010. It performed well doing the few tasks that I required of it, then one horrible day in July 2010 it went BYE BYE. That was a horrible experience for me and I have not purchased a WD device since. I am in need of a new HD now as the Master seems to failing. I am wondering now if I should try WD now.
Summary: Works great, extremely fast, and very quiet. Great product. Highly recommend. I got this drive to replace an old loud hard drive and its SO much quieter but I wasnt expecting it to be so much faster also.
