The secondary actuator uses a piezoelectric motor to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great so far

Pros: Very easy to install (assuming you have the correct case and cables). This took the place of a much slower (and older) WD 500G external drive. Formatted MBR, no issues. Tempted to spend less money on other brands, but have always had good experiences with WD. Glad I spent the extra $50.

Cons: No cables included and no install instructions. Must have upgrade knowledge prior to install or be willing to research the internet for directions.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective.

Pros: None to speak of as I haven't even used it yet.

Cons: Was using my system with just an ssd, got around to installing the hdd, and it powers on but only makes obnoxious whirring and buzzing sounds and is not recognized by the bios or windows at all.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Nick,
There are many variables that could amount to a drive emitting unusual sounds when powered on. To test our drives health, we have our Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows (WinDLG) utility, and Mac users can of course use Disk Utility and First Aid. For information on how to use the WinDLG utility, please view the information provided by the following link.

1 out of 5 eggsDrive is Junk

Pros: Reasonably fast.

Cons: I bought 3, two failed right away and were returned. One worked for less than two years and then failed. The RMA drive won't format.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy WD drives. IN recent years they are nothing but trouble. I've lost count of the number I've returned becauise they either were DOA or failed in service.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello LarryG, we thank you for taking the time to bring your concerns to us. We do stand behind our warranty and replacement policy and would appreciate the opportunity to replace your drive for you. Please use the following link for our replacement procedure.

1 out of 5 eggsWD 2TB Enterprise HD

Pros: None

Cons: Until now, I always thought of Western Digital as a name of quality. Pulled this 2TB WD HD out of my new parts inventory in an effort to build a Server. Oops, the drive would not initiate.....no clicking... nothing....

Other Thoughts: I may have been extremely lucky through my 15 years of building computers, but this is the first drive I have ever had fail to initialize when brand new and placed into service.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Prism, we regret hearing that you received a drive that is not working for you. Our goal is to provide world class customer service, and part of that goal in this situation would be to replace your drive, and investigate the cause relating to the products defect.
