2 out of 5 eggsFailed

Pros: Fast, quiet, pretty cool. Worked while it lasted.

Cons: Corrupt files began appearing until Windows could no longer boot. Luckily I will manage to save most files, but the drive needs to be replaced. I thought the 5 year warranty was a testament to reliability, but apparently not. I've never had a drive fail as soon as 1 year. I hope the replacement they send is better.

5 out of 5 eggsLove WD Everything

Pros: Fast Drive
Outstanding customer Service and Warranty support
*Typically* Very Long life span

Cons: Mine died after about a year and a half

Other Thoughts: WD Customer support and warranty replacement is the easiest I've ever had to work with. This was a 750G SATA 2 model that was no longer made when I RMA'd my drive. WD sent me a refurb 1TB SATA 3 Blue drive which is still working two years later.
