5 out of 5 eggsGreat drives but why the inflation?

Pros: I bought 2 of these for a new system early 2013 and as of the end of 2014 I have yet to have a problem with either drive. At the time they had a great price and good speed without going the route of SSD.

Cons: None until I decided to order a bunch for a person home server I am building only to find out the price has doubled since I got them.

Other Thoughts: Guess I won't be buying this product again, not when you can get something similar with more room for the same price I paid for these 2 years ago.

5 out of 5 eggsWhen you need storage.

Pros: Reliable , Quick, Reliable and more Reliable.

There is a reason these were the number 1 pick for years on end. SSD put an end to most Hard Disk's but I still find my self picking up a WD Black every now and then.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good solid reliable Hard Drive. Great for loading games. Consistant performance in reads and writes even after 2 years.
Reads faster than any other 7200RPM HDD i used.

Cons: Bit loud. Nothing to extreme though fairly noticable over a WD Blue 10EZEX.

Other Thoughts: May not have the best wriing performance as the WD Blue is 30-40MB/s faster. When loading applications/games there is a significant reduced wait time.

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate to earlier review on 11/24/2012

Pros: Very fast, quiet, a lot of storage.

Cons: After 6 months of use this drive started to fail. RMA process was very fast and easy. Have had the replacement in for almost 1.5 years now no problems.

Other Thoughts: I have two of these running in my PC right now with no issues. Docked one egg because the initial unit had issues. Would still highly recommend.

3 out of 5 eggsGuess I received a lemon...

Pros: Worked fine while it lasted.
Great customer service from Western Digital.

Cons: Had to RMA in under one year because of too many bad sectors.

Other Thoughts: I guess that my luck was bad, because my drive didn't even last one year. RMA'd the drive and Western Digital sent me a replacement in the same week. Without the great customer service I probably would have given one star but it makes a big difference to know that the company will honor the warranty in a timely fashion.

2 out of 5 eggsMaking crunching sounds after 9 months...

Pros: It's a fast hard drive.

Cons: It started making crunching sounds in only 9 months.

Other Thoughts: I bought this hard drive in December 2013 and now it's making crunching sounds less than a year later. It's being used as a data drive, so it should have held up better than my Seagate drive I'm using as a system drive. I'd expect a $50 drive to die after a year and a half of the same usage, but a $230 drive should last at LEAST 3 years before showing signs that it's about to die.

4 out of 5 eggsFinally Gave out!

Pros: Great hard drive and pretty fast for your standard 7200 RPM HD. Pretty quiet and kept cool.

Cons: Finally gave out today and was hoping it would have last longer than 3 years but it is still a good run for a $60 hard drive.

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.
