1 out of 5 eggsNo more newegg for me

This review is from: Western Digital WD RE4 WD5003ABYX 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: great,if it was the correct drive.

Cons: the drive was mislabeled from WD . I ordered 3 and 2 were correct but one is 200 GB. It was still factory sealed,and has the 500 GB label on it.
So,YOU, may get one of these also!!!

Other Thoughts: I contacted customer service via the chat window and they told to to wait 3 to 7 business days for them to get back to me with their decision on what they were going to do? DUH, wrong item, REFUND?
Nope,wait.
Been a new egg customer since it started,never a problem until now.

2 out of 5 eggsNo Warranty On This

This review is from: Western Digital WD RE4 WD5003ABYX 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Worked great while it lasted.

Cons: Not covered under warranty by Western Digital. I just tried to RMA this drive and WD won't allow it. When I bought the drive, Newegg said it was covered for 5 years. It hasn't even been 2 yet.

Other Thoughts: Not all drives are perfect, but buying something with a 5 year warranty should get you a 5 year warranty. We pay a little more for Enterprise Class hardware, it should hold up better than something I've had running a lot longer than that.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic HDD for SATA 2 PC's!

This review is from: Western Digital WD RE4 WD5003ABYX 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 64MB cache, 7200rpm, faster & quieter than SATA2 Caviar Black.

5 year warranty.

Very reliable HDD!

Quality that only WD delivers!

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: This HDD was purchased in the summer of 2012 at Newegg, was packaged very carefully.

Bought it was an upgrade to a WD Caviar Blue, preferring a 500GB over the more popular 1TB HDD's. Though it's not labeled as a desktop drive, it's all that it's been used for. Has been moved from 3 PC's, eventually finding a permanent home in my XPS 8700 running Windows 8.

This drive is very quiet & vibration free, much more so than the 1TB Caviar Black that I have, also purchased here. Has served me well since the first install to this day.

If purchasing, make sure that your ports are SATA 2, there is a newer model for SATA 3 equipped PC's.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Purchase ever!

This review is from: Western Digital WD RE4 WD5003ABYX 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: -500Gb at a reasonable price and you can't beat that.
-Fast and reliable
-Lasts forever if you take care of it

Cons: -none

Other Thoughts: If you can't afford a SSD then i would highly recommend this one. If you need more space the 1TB hard drive works like a charm as well!
