Almost 2 Years, Bad Sectors

Jason H., Newegg
9 July 2012
  • Summary: There are two types of hard drives, ones that have already failed and ones that are going to fail. Plan accordingly!
  • Pros: Purchased 9/7/2010, developed bad sectors July 2012 - it's still under warranty. Warranty was 3 years at the time. WD offers a no cost advance replacement warranty.
  • Cons: Developed bad sectors. WD only offers a 2 year warranty on these drives now.

terrible for my 2010 macbook pro 13"

Yun K., Newegg
25 September 2010
  • Summary: I had initially been on the fence between this drive and a 7200rpm. After reading about issues regarding the SMART sensor and increased vibration noise with the faster drives, i opted to get a larger capacity 5400rpm assuming that speed wouldn't be such a big issue.
  • Pros: -large capacity (perhaps more than i even needed) -quiet -it works(?)
  • Cons: -i get those beachball cursors almost everytime i switch to a new window, click on an app or even just changing system preferences. even when im typing i get these lag spikes. it happens so frequently, i dont know if i just got a bad drive or what, but its been a little over a month since i bough...

  • Summary: I have easily upgraded my internal hard drive in my MacBook Pro Unibody mid 2009 version. It's really easy to install. And yeah you will feel the power of having huge capacity hard drive; no more deleting stuffs!

Confusing Reviews

R. Neal "Rdizzle", Amazon
13 September 2012
  • Summary: First off, this took ages to be dispatched let alone arrive. Secondly I connected it up to my MacBook Pro (13" 2010 ed) and it didn't recognise it. So now I have to pay more money for a SATA to USB cable to format it on a pc and hope the Mac recognises it then, if not I'll be wanting my money back.

makes strange noises

robina2, Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this drive as a replacement for a failed 500gb drive. It looks a good drive for the money and the delivery time was excellent, but when installed the drive seems a bit noiser than the previously installed drive. The drive works ok it just ocassionally makes a strange noise.

  • Excerpt: Был куплен уже 2 жесткий этой фирмы, результат одинаков начинают пищать и подыхают. Использую в ноутбуке, включаю не часто, работаю только на столе, ни каких ударов и полетов. Жаль, разочаровался в этой фирме. Потерял много инфы, брать только как на торрент и чего не жалко в случае утраты.
  • Pros: Малый ток потребления До последнего не слышал шума
  • Cons: Проработал 2 с небольшим года и сдох Маленькая скорость чтения и записи

  • Summary: Достоинства Проработал полгода... Если это, конечно, преимущество. Недостатки Через месяц работы появились потерянные кластеры. Но потом вел себя прилично. Через полгода умер быстро, за несколько часов. Не все данные получилось спасти. Общие впечатления Может не повезло?
