Failed after 13 months but I still recommend

Anonymous, Newegg
30 November 2014
  • Summary: Why give it four stars and still recommend it? All hard drive die eventually so that isn't a reason not to get this drive. Smart tripped and let me know the failure was coming. I was able to back all my data so this was an optimal failure if there is such a thing. Also, the WD RMA as fast and easy.
  • Pros: WD honored their warranty
  • Cons: Failed after 13 months

Nice drive

Ed T., Newegg
4 February 2014
  • Pros: Worked flawlessly for a couple years where I would transfer 500GB to/from it on a daily basis to/from my laptop. I now use it as an additional hard drive in my case and haven't had any problems with it, not even once.
  • Cons: No complaints.

Going to check out other brands

Mark G., Newegg
12 January 2014
  • Pros: Quiet when it isn't clicking
  • Cons: Failed after about 6 uses. We went through something like this a couple of years ago with WD drives crashing almost immediately. I guess WD has brought back this problem for grins. I'll be checking out other brands again, for the last time!

Good drive Make sure to partition!!

Mark G., Newegg
11 October 2013
  • Pros: Quiet and fast enough but be sure to partition this drive. When I first installed it in the enclosure neither Linux or Win 7 could see it. I logged into Linux and went into "fdisk" and noticed that it didn't have any kind of partition defined. I installed a NTFS partition on it and formatted it. ...
  • Cons: None except for the drive not having any partitions defined. That may throw off users who don't know to look. newegg may gets returns on good drives.

Windows Vista won't run Windows Update after cloning

Thomas S., Newegg
15 June 2013
  • Summary: Response to Manufacturer: I have been in contact with tech support and are impressed by their helpfulness. They have offered to exchange my 500GB drive for a non-advanced format drive when they have on in stock which I will take advantage of.
  • Pros: Good Tech Support
  • Cons: Windows Vista won't run Windows Update after cloning to an Advanced format drive like this one. Windows 7 can have the same problem but there is suppose to be a fix for it. Don't know about Windows 8 but I would stay away from Advanced Format Drives it I were you. Manufacturer Response: We apprec...
