5 out of 5 eggsRuns Great!

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: I got this to store videos and backups. Speed is good enough for being an HDD. I didnt buy this for my OS and main programs, I got it for the space.

No problems performance/stability wise.

Cons: A bit bulky - It's super tight on my HAF-X HDD case-holder - Just something to pay attention to

5 out of 5 eggsWestern Digitals simply the best

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: Great drive, as always. Couldn't ask for a better 4TB HDD. came shipped in a great protective case, slipped right into multiple HDD enclosure and starting writing data immediately.

Cons: NEED BIGGER DRIVES! Price could be cheaper, but I am a cheapskate, so actually very competitive to other sites

Other Thoughts: If you are going to buy a HDD you cannot go wrong with WD drives. Superior to Seagates.

3 out of 5 eggsCaution Ordering in Bulk

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: Available in large quantity, almost unbeatable price per gig. Have had success with WD Green series in the past (have used a large quantity of the 3TB version and they work great).

Cons: Packaging, believe it or not. Because this is a bulk product and you get the bare drive, there is no guarantee that the shipping material will be adequate protection for the drive.

Bulk/OEM drives are typically shipped in boxes with foam cutouts that hold 20 hard drives (at least from Western Digital). Many times these cutouts will be used with large orders (like mine - 15 drives) and put in the same box they were shipped in.

My 15 drives were placed in the foam case (good so far), wrapped in a good amount of bubble wrap and taped securely (also good), and then placed in a flimsy box that had a good 3-4 inches of space on every side of the drive package, including above it. Although some inflated plastic-bag packaging material was used, it wasn't nearly enough. The 15-hard-drive-brick was free to bounce around the confines of the larger box. The weight of the drives caused the bottom of the box to sag.

Mechanical hard drives are prone to failure when exposed to shock. I had to RMA this shipment of drives; I can't risk having drives fail due to something that happened before they were in my hands.

Other Thoughts: I called Newegg to discuss the physical condition of my shipment, and customer service was a pleasure to deal with (considering the circumstances). I sent pictures of the packaging, and we agreed on getting this order shipped back and a replacement order shipped out once the RMA is received by Newegg. This puts me a week or so behind my project schedule, which I'm my boss will remind me about constantly until the drives come in.

I ordered 15 drives to distribute into 5 different workstations. I'm expecting to order 90 additional drives over the next year or so (in phases). I'm hoping the experience with this order is a single occurrence.

I was going to wait to review this product until I've used it some (I have used the 3TB version in large quantity and they work great), but Newegg sent me an email at 1:45 a.m. asking to review this product, so here I am. I will update this review once the replacement order has arrived (hopefully with nothing but positive things to say).

4 out of 5 eggsGood drive

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: Low power reqs
High Cap

Cons: none really

Other Thoughts: Win7 64bit only recognizes 2.19TB by default. Have to bypass that by changing to GPT disk. (Was not aware of this beforehand)

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: The fact I can take it back to the store without a hassle... oh wait, never mind, I have to pay a hefty sum to ship back their mistake.

Cons: Dead on arrival. Thanks guys.

Other Thoughts: Drive was not working and just a few seconds of testing revealed sectors/read errors and S.M.A.R.T. data indicating complete failure at any moment. Drive vibrations were moderately heavy as well which also isn't a good sign. So pretty much they just "forgot" to test this before leaving the factory as it would only have taken a few seconds to realize it was bad. At over $10/pop, I'm not willing to risk getting a new one.

Also, I chose this drive because there seemed to be way fewer low rated reviews about DOA/defective merchandise. If this review gets culled, then I'll know Newegg reviews can't be trusted to get an idea of the reliability of the product.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked fine for me

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: Drive arrived in good condition and functioned fine once it was installed. Something else went horribly wrong with my computer after I installed the drive, but that was just old age getting to my setup. My experience with this Western Digital Green 4 TB drive was entirely positive.

Cons: Package included no SATA cable, which I wasn't expecting or ready for. Had to make a run to a Best Buy.

3 out of 5 eggsWould be better if they didn't ship DOA

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: Large drive - price per GB is very low. Green drives run slightly cooler and save energy by spinning down when not in use. Moving files onto the drive from another WD green averaged speeds of 89MB/s for a total of 3TB moved, which is pretty good.

Cons: One of them shipped DOA. The RMA process through Western Digital isn't too pleasant, since you have to create an account on their website, create a RMA, then pay for shipping back to them. I got them to ship a drive out to me before shipping mine back, but it will put a hold of about $300 on your credit card. I've purchased many drives from Western Digital over the years and this is the first DOA, but I'm a little annoyed that they sent me a re-certified drive as a replacement, even though the drive they sent works.

5 out of 5 eggsJust fine

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: Arrived fine, just worked.

Cons: Supposedly slower disk than others, but I didn't test them.

Other Thoughts: I am buying only Seagate and Western Digital Green disks these days, given my history of failures of other brands. I use these disks for backups, so speed is not a primary concern, but reliability is. So far, the most recent Seagate and WD Green disks that I have purchased have had no problems.
