5 out of 5 eggsCan't beat it for the price

This review is from: Western Digital Caviar Green WD15EZRX 1.50 TB 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: 1.5 terabytes for 65 is about as cheap as they come

Cons: This is a bare drive, which means it will need to be formatted before it can be used. Quick formatting didn't work for me, too many errors. Had to do a full format, which took hours.

Other Thoughts: This is used primarily as storage for steam games. It's been almost a year and no complaints so far.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet, Fast, Stable HDD with Tons of Space

This review is from: Western Digital Caviar Green WD15EZRX 1.50 TB 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: • Price-per-GB. For the 1.5TB of space you get with this drive, it is a great value.
• Quiet. The WD Green series is WD's low-power, quiet HDD. It's not silent, as it's an HDD so it has a mechanical noise that all hard-disk drives have. But compared to most, this HDD is as quiet as some laptop hard drives.
• Stable. I've only owned this drive for 6~ months, but so far it has been performing flawlessly.
• Fast. It's Western Digital's slowest drive, but it's definitely not slow. While it's not a WD Black or Blue series, this drive has decent speed that works perfect as a data/secondary hard drive, but could easily be used as a boot drive too.

Cons: • Random pausing. The only con I have about this drive is its tendency to occasionally pause. What I mean by this is a few times a day (every couple of hours) this drive makes a mechanical noise almost like it does when it reads/writes data. Sometimes at random, other times when I access something such as the disk drive (C:, E:, etc) in Windows Explorer. When it does this, it pauses everything on my computer that was currently loading, until the noise stops, then it resumes. I don't remember 100% if my old system did this, it might have. This might be a completely normal function of hard drives for all I know.

Other Thoughts: This has been a great storage drive for me. 1.5TB is a good amount of space, and was just what I needed as I now already used 1.2TB of it in 6 months. For most people, 1.5TB is plenty of space for years worth of storage, however. While I use it as a storage drive rather than a boot drive, this could definitely be used as a main boot drive as I have no complaints at the speed. I have all of my games loaded to it and the loading times are pretty fast.

5 eggs for this drive (as long as it doesn't fail on me!) :D

1 out of 5 eggsDied in less than a year

This review is from: Western Digital Caviar Green WD15EZRX 1.50 TB 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Worked while I had it, which was 10 months.

Cons: Died after 10 months. It forced my computer to shut down abruptly without warning. When I checked lines and rebooted, it no longer showed up in BIOS, device manager, or in windows. Not very happy, was my first time going with western digital for a hard drive.

Other Thoughts: Never had problems with any other hard drives, some I have owned for 12+ years. There is a first time for everything, of course, but I think I will stay with my normal brands now.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer, we are very sorry to hear that your drive failed in such a short time. We stand by our warranty policy and will replace your in-warranty drive for you and investigate the cause of your particular failure.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Western Digital Caviar Green WD15EZRX 1.50 TB 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: good cost per GB when purchased on sale
turn off when not in use so they don't use power

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: they are designed to be lower powered drives, i use them as backup for documents, pictures and other files i don't need to have access of continually and they work great for it. If you try to use these as primary drives, or in HTPC applications you are not going to be happy, but it's your fault because that's not what they are designed for. i like it

5 out of 5 eggsGood Hard Drive

This review is from: Western Digital Caviar Green WD15EZRX 1.50 TB 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Pros- The drive works brilliantly. Its easy to install, and my machine recognized it with no problem.

Cons: Cons- None

Other Thoughts: Others- Some may complain that its "Too slow for gaming" this is not true. The loading times may be a tad bit slow, but overall this drive is just fine for gaming. I've experienced absolutely zero lag spikes and or lag in general.
