1 out of 5 eggsTwo failed drives in a row

This review is from: Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: When they work they do what they are supposed to and are inexpensive....

Cons: First drive failed within warranty, after about 2 years, was rma'd smoothly with advance exchange. Second drive failed after 3 months, 261 hours. This was a recertified drive....

Unfortunately I have had 4 drive failures, or 100% of WD drives, I purchased in the last 4 year fails! Two were WD Blacks, and this documents the other two....This is terrible reliability! The only good thing is the two WD Black replacements still function.....

Other Thoughts: SMART showed it was fine, but windows could not access, and WD diagnostics immediately failed drive. HDtune scan showed most sectors are bad..This replacement the web interface will not allow advance exchange and was a "Recertified" unit.
So now, send it back, wait till they send out another recertified in a couple weeks...

I have had better reliability with S*gate, great luck with Hit*hi (of old), perfect record with Sam*g....but WD is going on my bad list...data is too important.
