5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drives

Pros: Upgraded from my 6 seagate 7k drives in raid 0 to 4 of these 10k drives. These things are much quicker across the board, read, write, random r/w, latency, all quicker.
Software and games load in the blink of an eye. Boot time was shortened by about half.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Been rocking these for over 2 years with no issues.

5 out of 5 eggsFast But still...

Pros: Great drive for the times/cost but I don't think strictly mechanicals will be around for to much longer. Maybe 3 or 4 years.

Cons: Hybrids are way faster and coming down in price. Slow compared to hybrid drives.

Other Thoughts: Thinking of replacing mine with a hybrid and using this to archive.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great.

Pros: Fast drive, not too noisy, good price for performance.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I used this as my main drive for over a year in my gaming computer and it worked great. It isn't too noisy and boot / program load times were fast. I've since moved onto a SSD and I'm not using it as storage, but for price vs performance it's a great value for the budget minded rig builder.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Perfomance

Pros: Bought this as a less expensive alternative to SSD a little over a year ago as my primary boot drive. Has performed just as expected, not up to SSD speeds but much faster than 7200rpm. No regrets.

Cons: No problems. Still going strong after a year.

Other Thoughts: Handles a load well. I typically boot my OS + a single VM from this drive without perceptible lag from either system.

5 out of 5 eggsThis thing can take the heat

Pros: -fantastic performance
-takes abuse, see story below
-fantastic discount, thank you newegg

Cons: -not an SSD, but sure as heck not as costly as one this size

Other Thoughts: -accidentally installed windows on it as an A: drive, had to make a partition and install windows as a C: drive o that, then hoped on a linux thub drive the extend the new partition over the A: drive... used like 10 recovery things, and it worked like a charm

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Price was great, Western Digital support rep was nice and helped me create a RMA

Cons: Dead in the box. To create the RMA, they will put a temporary $165 charge on my credit card until they get their drive back. I'm sure that is standard practice for everyone, but still...I also have to wait 3-5 days

Other Thoughts: I know every company is going to create a bad device at some point, but it is still disappointing to open a new box and have a dead unit inside. I'm sure I'll continue to buy WD hard drives

3 out of 5 eggsLoud Clicking. I expect it to fail soon.

Pros: It is a very fast HDD

Cons: I waited a few months before I actually started using it and it clicks loudly when in use. I've had it too long for a newegg RMA so I've contacted the manufacturer to see if they can help me.

Other Thoughts: Make sure the hard drive doesn't click when you get it. Clicking is a sign that the hard drive will soon fail.

4 out of 5 eggsPoor Packing by Newegg

Pros: Nothing but good things to say about WD Raptor hard drives. I've have 6 of them over the years, and they definitely beat standard 7200rpm drives. They are getting a little irrelevant with the SSD coming on, but still fill a small niche. They serve well, if they arrive intact.

Cons: If a mechanical drive bounces around in the box it's shipped in, it's no different than bouncing around without a box. The truth is it would be safer to not box it at all and trust the handlers to take better care of it than the illusion of protection.

Other Thoughts: I understand that it gets busy for Newegg during the holidays, but if they are not going to make a small effort to safe guard the products we purchase to arrive safely, then it only costs us loyal customers in the end. Putting an OEM drive [no packaging] in a box with out any protection form stopping it from moving inside the box, is not acceptable.
