1 out of 5 eggsUnfortunately 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: Will report when replacement working drive is received.

Cons: First drive DOA

Other Thoughts: Using Windows 8.1. Configured as GPT filesystem (and verified this in disk manager). On format as NTFS (the only option), the format fails after about one minute with a hardware I/O error. The format was tried on two different computers, with three different SATA channels, including installing internally to the PC on the motherboard SATA connector. The BIOS was checked. It is seen in Windows but is unformatted. BTW, I have a 3TB drive that successfully works, so I know how to configure a larger than 2.2TB drive.

1 out of 5 eggsJust can't keep it running

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

Pros: None as of this writing

Cons: Just can't keep this thing running. Even partitioned to stay below the 2.2T old limits and running Win 7 x64 Ultimate, ich10r chipset with updated drivers, the drive drops data, loses it's file system and becomes unreadable. I am just flat disappointed and am having to install some smaller and much older drives to keep me working. Trouble is, it passes the DataLifeguard quick test, but I haven't had the time to run the long test.

Other Thoughts: I had been under the impression that there was something wrong with my motherboard up until now. But other drives run perfectly with the same slot, sata connection and wires. HMMM ? I will have to assume it's the drive now since I have exhausted nearly every possibility. I hate to return it though since I have waited past the 30 days for a new replacement and will be stuck with a refurb. Bummer..

4 out of 5 eggsHas Limitations

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 Capacity, WD Brand, Price Per TB

Cons: When i placed drive into my external Enclosure all it showed was 1.8TB so i started to research... I found the Following 4TB size has limitations with the Thermaltake BlacX External enclosure as well at the Limitations of using MBR (Master Boot Record) partitioning Scheme. Had to use the drive internally and GPT (Guid Partition Table) as partitioning Scheme. This Needs to be mentioned in Marketing info, and is probably why so many people seem to be having issues.

Other Thoughts: Please Disclose that there are Issues with MBR and many USB External enclosures on the product page. Using it as a Internal Drive with GPT worked.

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: - Good size storage
- No problems so far (fairly reliable name/model)
- Best price per TB for comparably large drives (at the time)
- I got it on sale

Cons: - It is a bare drive, so you need a nominal level of installation competence and a tweaker

Other Thoughts: Happy, no problems

1 out of 5 eggsDead on arrival.

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

Pros: BIOS and Partition Magic don't even see this HDD
It works only as a noisemaker. I don't know why, and where manufacturer hide a speaker, but it's really boring sound.

Cons: Can a return my money? I can't trust WD products after so high number of unsatisfied reviews.

1 out of 5 eggsBoy I wish I read the reviews before I bought

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 have no idea. This drive was dead on arrival.

Cons: First I must say I have enjoyed Western Digital's Green Drives since I first bought their 2TB model some years ago, and I assumed their 4TB model would be of the same excellent quality. Unfortunately, it was not. I don't know what kind of quality control is going on at WD but something is very wrong for there to be so many people receiving dead and useless drives that don't even work from day 1. This is a huge hassle for me to receive a defective product and pay out of my pocket to get it replaced with a working drive.

Other Thoughts: I am upset to have to go through the hassle of shipping this back and paying out of my pocket for return shipping for a product that should have easily been proven defective had WD done more thorough testing on their drives. I am now weary of purchasing WD products in the future because of this widespread issue.
