1 out of 5 eggsDead after less than two years

This review is from: Western Digital Elements 1TB Desktop External Hard Drive

Pros: Spacious, no excess software to deal with.

Cons: DEAD, after less than two years!

Other Thoughts: Warranty is out (of course), and the drive is useful only as a paperweight. Went to check a backup (which was the purpose for this drive), and came back with errors. Tried to diagnose, but the drive was only intermittently visible to the desktop. Tried to repair permissions, ran WD's own Acronis software hoping that it was just a glitch, but no dice. As a last resort I turned to WD's Quick Formatter, but the drive can't be formatted. I am very disappointed with WD. I tried one of their drives on the recommendation of a friend. My Seagate died after less than 5 years of use, so all in all I can't say I'm happy with the quality of the products these companies. Seagate is not what it once was, and I'm starting to wonder how trustworthy any of them are anymore.

This review is from: Western Digital Elements 1TB Desktop External Hard Drive

Pros: Great while it lasted

Cons: Failed after 4 months and I am still having trouble getting replacement from WD. Not to mention thousands of pictures and music files lost that had cost me substantial money to obtain.
Still fussing with WD for them to recover data files

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME!

This review is from: Western Digital Elements 1TB Desktop External Hard Drive

Pros: This puppy holds all my movies and it is GREAT! Fast transfers and low heat. No noise at all and pretty rugged. Wires can wear out if heavily played with but that is with anything. Take care of it and it will work forever!

Cons: none!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

This review is from: Western Digital Elements 1TB Desktop External Hard Drive

Pros: This has been running well for over a year, no bad sectors, good transfer rates and solid casing.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Newegg customer service has been horrible for the past 2 years. It took me 4 months of constantly calling back supervisors who never return calls or take care of issues to get my problems resolved, and they still aren't after all this time and a settlement. I have not received what was promised, and my issue was resolved after almost a half a year. It has become a hassle getting through, every call takes a half hour to get through, then no ONE WANTS TO HELP OUT IT'S RIDICULOUS.
