3 out of 5 eggsFinally Died

Pros: High Capacity. Good brand. High performance. 90$~ purchase price when I bought it 4 years ago.

Cons: The HDD finally died. This is after 4 years of use. To be fair, for the last 2 years I experienced BSODs and have spent the time since then replacing parts and troubleshooting the issue. BSODs were pointing to ntoskrnl.exe which usually indicates a hardware malfunction or drivers needing updated. Every piece of hardware has been replaced except the CPU and HDD. I imagine if it was the CPU then I would experience more issues, instead of BSODs every now and then. The hard drive does have a 5 year warranty and I am hoping it will be covered for a replacement. Even if they do not cover it, I will stick with WD because I know things like this happen, and the drive did work very well for the first few years.

5 out of 5 eggsLove these!

Pros: I've had several of these. Back when I purchased them you couldn't beat it. They were about $70/ea. and They have run like champs since day 1 and continue to. Once I fill them up they either sit in my PC and run all day, or in external enclosures and run whenever I need to pull something off them.

Cons: None. Maybe, size. With capacities growing and growing, it's maybe considered small but I don't like to invest in huge 4TB drives. I feel the 1TBs are more reliable.

2 out of 5 eggsLook elsewhere

Pros: When they are working, they seem to be all they're hyped up to be. RMA process is very good, although I wouldn't expect to have to use it on new drives.

Cons: Where do I start.... Ordered 2 of these for a new desktop build and set one drive up as a clone of the other. These were to be used purely as file storage. Right out of the box 1 drive was good and the other had SMART errors. RMA'd the bad drive to Newegg and got the replacement within a week. Fastforward a few weeks and the other original drive started receiving SMART errors. RMA'd that back to WD and got the replacement drive. Guess what... that drive was bad too so back to WD it went.

Other Thoughts: If I had to do it all over again, I would look elsewhere as to WD. The RMA process for both Newegg and WD was pretty simple and straight forward. To go through 3 bad drives to find 2 good ones seems like the quality control isn't there. I had my operating system running off a SSD and at least had 1 good drive operational while this all took place. The first 2 months of the PC build were rough due to these drives but haven't had any issues for the last 4 months.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable HDD

Pros: High performance, Solid quality, Pretty quiet for a mechanical HDD.

Cons: Price

3 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Great drive, worked fine until it crashed

Cons: I deducted 2 eggs because when the drive went bad Western Digital replaced it but the replacement had bad sectors. I had to return it twice before I received a good one.

Other Thoughts: I've had many different hard drives in the past. You get what you pay for. This drive was good, I used it to store my data on, not a primary drive. I lost all my data twice. I can't believe I had to pay shipping to return the drive twice before they sent me one that was good.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Bought 2 of these for my pc build over a year ago, great price for the space at the time. Since then I have upgraded to dual SSD drives but still run these in my rig to store non Windows and games (ie. music, movies, ect)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a hard drive for your windows or video game installs than I would recommend looking at an SSD instead.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked for a while...

Pros: The drive worked as it's intended.

Cons: All HDD's crash at some point

Other Thoughts: Bought this back on 2012. Up and died on my suddenly. This seems about par for WD drives in my experience. They work really well for a couple of years and then they just have a sudden death. Though, that is just my observation. It served the purpose for which it was bought.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo bad units.

Pros: When it works it has decent speed.

Cons: I ordered two of them. One didn't work at all - when installed my computer would freeze after about 20 minutes. The second one worked fine for about 7 months, then developed "cycle redundancy check" errors when copying files.
