Three cheers for five years

Pros: This bad mother lasted me five years, 2 months and 29 days.
It lasted through being within 50 GB of full, for three and a half of those years.
This card got put through the ringer, and it kept on kickin.
This card held all my dirty secrets, and all my happy moments. For what I paid, I got more than 100x in value from my purchase.
This card is 10/10.

Cons: Well, I guess it dies eventually.

Mixed feelings...

Pros: - Good size for the price.
- Relatively quiet

Cons: - Only lasted just past the 2yr warranty.

Other Thoughts: WD is a major brand, is known for reliability, and generally puts out a good product....maybe I drew a short straw on this one? Am replacing it with a 1TB Black series.

Manufacturer Response:
Hi Daniel W.,

We are sorry hearing your experience with the WD Blue Desktop Hard Drive and thanks for your time providing this feedback. The best practice is to run diagnostics with Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for windows by connecting the drive on a different SATA port or as a secondary drive on the computer when a drive is behaving abnormally. You can refer to the link mentioned below and follow the instructions to test the drive using Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows.

Good storage solution

Pros: Good price to storage ratio

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this to supplement my boot SSD and to store my Steam library. It works great with decent read/write speed. However, I underestimated just how much storage games require. If I were to buy again, I would probably get at least 2 TB of storage.

Over 4 years 0 problems

Pros: -has run flawlessly for over 4 years, never had a crash or any worry
-pretty blue design on the top

Cons: -NONE

Other Thoughts: -Paying for the brand name, can get a 2tb hgst/hitachi for same price, more guaranteed cycles

Does its job

Pros: -exactly as advertised
-perfect for a backup storage. (use SSD or m.2 to run operating system)

Cons: 7200rpm catches the eye but my WD blue 2tb 5400rpm actually loads games a few seconds faster.

Other Thoughts: It's worth it to spend more on an SSD or m.2 if being used for Operating System.
This drive is perfect for storage but dont buy it over the 5400rpm because of the rpm only. The 2tb Blue 5400rpm is larger, loads games faster, and can be found for about the same price.
Don't forget to defrag every so often.

Decent hard drive

Pros: It is what it is...Have had it for a few months without any issues.

Cons: None so far...

Other Thoughts: I will change this review if something does occur.
Recommend only to those that require slow speed storage at a cheap cost.
