1 out of 5 eggsSlow and buggy

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

Pros: Inexpensive and good reviews at time of purchase

Cons: Slow, parks the read head all the time to save energy, unfortunately the firmware keeps count of the parking cycles and the drive was set to stop at a certain count. Had to change settings using WD utility to prevent that. After about 6 months it developed quite a number of bad sectors, enough to mess up the OS and having to re-install it, but unfortunately not enough to get an RMA and have the drive replaced. Same problem at 2 years and 7 months, this time they would have replaced it but the warranty is expired. Did I mention slow and lot of bad sectors?

Other Thoughts: Buy it if you want a slow and unreliable drive. You think you might save some power with one of these, but you won't because it will take 18 hours instead of 2 to transfer 500GB of data, and you'll have it running for hundreds of extra hours running disk diagnosis and repair utilities

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy it!

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

Pros: you buy what you pay for.

Cons: the drive is dead after 18 months. It is just a disappointment. Do not buy it, if you do, you will waste your time, money, and more importantly you may lose your data.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks okay

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

Pros: It works okay

Cons: It's slow but I knew that when I bought it. Should mention though that I have had 3 of these "green" drives from WD of varying sizes go bad in the last 3 years. I wound up giving them away as storage drives in computer builds, I don't trust them for long term storage.

Other Thoughts: None

2 out of 5 eggsGood While It Lasted

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

Pros: Worked great for a little while. Decent read/write speed. Only a few hiccups every now and then.

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.
