5 out of 5 eggsGreat HD for price

Pros: Purchased a bit over a month ago and so far I am very pleased with the product. I've already used almost half of the storage, but transferring from my main drive to this one isn't a hassle. I transferred approx. 300 gb of data when I first got it and it ran at about 45 MB/sec average and took about 30 mins to complete. So 100 gb every 10 minutes isn't bad. Never had a problem with recognition or slow processing/loading of files. I'd highly recommend this as a storage drive to others.

Cons: As other people have said, it is a bit loud booting up but not a big deal.

1 out of 5 eggsBad harddrive, Obviously not new

Pros: good paper weight until i return this

Cons: Dead drive on arrival.
Did not show up in bios or device manager.

IT IS NOT BRAND NEW,
Mine came without any original packaging.

It looks clean and new but it didnt work and didnt come in a legitimate box, so im assuming newegg sent me a used item because i bought this drive in a bundle. (Was merely wrapped in bubble wrap.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY if you are looking for a new hard drive.
There is no way the hard drive came without a box out of manufacturer

4 out of 5 eggsFine for storage

Pros: I ordered two of these to complement my waning media and backup storage solutions. Both worked perfectly and immediately, without issue. The size and price are great, and for storage I'm not really needing it to break any speed records. I've had a solid experience with WD drives in general.

Cons: None, really. It's a basic disk drive. My socks weren't blown off, but I'm not sure that I would've needed that.

Other Thoughts: These were easy to order, no regrets - thanks Newegg!

2 out of 5 eggsInteresting drive, but flaky

Pros: It was inexpensive.. it has large capacity

Cons: I use the drive primarily to store videos, so speed isn't a great requirement. Yet, it takes seeming forever to transfer 200-300mb data files. These files should take about 20-30 seconds at the most, yet can take 10 minutes or more on this drive. These are the kind of "slowdowns" reported by others as well. The 1tb version does not seem to have these issues.

Other Thoughts: I believe that it might just be the 2tb versions of this drive that have reliability issues. WD software stills says the drive is in good order.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for simple storage

Pros: Space vs price not bad....power saving as well.

Cons: A bit loud while spooled up almost sounds like the bearings are worn out, will see if the drive craps out.

Other Thoughts: I really prefer Samsung spin-point drives, but once segate bought it out you can not get a good mechanical drive anymore. I have 15 spinpoint drives I ordered 9+ years ago still running in raid 0 same as the day I installed them with minimal sector loss and tons of data transfers to them and off again....Started with 18. The 3 I lost where at the 5 year mark....not a bad run for mechanical drives. Western digital drives would be much better if they would get away from bushings....dynamic fluid floats with dual cartage bearings means smoother longer operations...as far as the disk materials idk never made a data disk...but I know how to take them apart and fix things.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Storage

Pros: -Price per GB (especially if you get it on sale)
-User Friendly (easy to set-up)
-Quiet
-Efficient (low power consumption)
-Reliable

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: Be aware of what you need your hard drive for; the Western Digital Green series is for storage (i.e. music,video, documents and picture collections). It is not intended to be used for your primary OS drive or to run games. If you buy this hard drive for storage you will be very pleased (long life, low power consumption and quiet). If you buy it for performance - "you're going to have a bad time."

5 out of 5 eggsI Love the Packaging

Pros: * Most of the pros listed by other reviewers.

* This is a bare drive. It does not come with any packaging, it does not come with any accessories at all. This is a good thing to me. SATA power cable comes with your PSU, and SATA data cable comes with your mobo. Nothing else is required. My drive arrived encased in an envelope made out of a SealedAir type product. Just take drive out of envelope, install, puncture the air pockets, and deposit small amount of plastic resin in the recycle bin. Absolutely nothing went to waste.

Cons: None that I am aware of. Other reviewers might be unhappy with the speed in various situations, but that is a trade off you expect to make to save power, IMO.

I noticed some reviewers got drives that were DOA. I wonder if the packaging has been the same for some time; it was so protected that I doubt the UPS guy could have damaged it if he had wanted to. Maybe there was a bad batch of drives. Maybe they were handled roughly prior to the bare drive packaging I described in 'Pros' I don't know really. But I would be happy to RMA the device if it were DOA. I have almost always gotten good service from NewEgg.

Other Thoughts: If you are using this as a backup drive or for non-time critical data, this drive is ideal. If you are running an app that needs a fast drive, don't keep your data on this drive; pick a drive that is more suitable for your application.

1 out of 5 eggsDissapointing data storage

Pros: Drive worked well for 2 years. Was decently fast and seemed perfectly stable.

Cons: I bought this drive about 2 years and 3 months ago, and about 2 months ago it started having odd slow downs. The drive never dismounted nor gave any obvious signs it was dying, but would just occasionally be slow. Well, now it is a never ending barrage of slowness. I used western digitals life guard diagnotisic and it came back saying the drive was basically hammered, no life but a sliver left. So if your buying this drive, be well aware there is an extremely high chance of death after its 2 year warranty. Im not the only customer to find the drive die so shorty after its warranties experation date.

Other Thoughts: Its nice that the drive is still accessible, and for the most part the data can be scavanged off of it, but it is a huge let down that i have to re download 1.5 tbs of steam games on to my new disk.
