1 out of 5 eggsWestern Digital what happen?

Pros: They are big

Cons: Ordered 11 of these for my work 5 months ago, 9 of the 11 are dead and another is acting up. Speechless..

Worked as a pc tech for the better part of a decade and never seen entire batches of drives die like this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive, Sorry Packaging

Pros: Great Drive, Very Quiet, reliable and Fast. I have been using this with a Synology DS110j as a Media Server and it works like a charm. It has been in constant use for the last 6-8 months and has yet to fail. I also have WD Live TV media players hooked up to my 4 TVs and all of them can be playing something from the Media Server with this drive in it without a hiccup.

Cons: The only con I have is not with the drive, but with Newegg's packaging. My first one came in bubble wrap and the SATA connector had been damaged. Their policy says that they will not replace drives that were damaged in shipping, yet they do not package the drives very well at all. WD would not accept an RMA on a drive shipped like the on they sent me. Newegg did however end up replacing the drive, after a long talk with customer service, so I don't have anything to complain about

Other Thoughts: Newegg should package their drives better, but you can't get a better drive for a media server or NAS than this one.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for HTPC.

Pros: Bought for my HTPC. Very quiet. No vibration noise. No seek noise. Can't even hear it if I'm right next to my HTPC. Low power is always a must for HTPC's and this is an AV hard drive so all around made for HTPC's.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: HTPC!

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for upgrading your DirecTV DVR drive!!!

Pros: Perfect upgrade for your DirecTV HD-DVR hard drive (HR-2x series, at least) from the OEM 500GB. Since the DTV DVR boxes always access the drive, using a quiet, low power drive like this one is a must! I originally tried a 1TB Black label (WD1001FALS) but the performance drives are too loud and it was too distracting while watching programs.

Cons: If you are using this drive in a PC (Which it is NOT suited for) you have to tell the BIOS to allow the drive at least 15sec to spin-up and initialize, or it may not be properly detected by all HDD controllers

Other Thoughts: This drive is in the same product line (WD-AV series) as the OEM drive in my DVR, providing ultra quiet, reliable 24/7 always on operation.

2 out of 5 eggsA questionable buy

Pros: It worked when it arrived.

Cons: Failed on the 2nd day

Other Thoughts: I purchased this from another supplier last week, when there was a slightly cheaper price. I've been a WD user for the last few years, ever since the Caviar Black line was so reliable (and fast). I purchased this based on my experience with WD, I was saddened to have gotten it, copied my data to it, and used it for a day, when suddenly my system couldn't recognize it and then wouldn't even boot when it was attached. My replacement is already on the way and I'm hoping that this is a rare case of disk drive infant mortality, but my confidence in WD is being re-evaluated.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for Me

Pros: It works.

Cons: Nothing.

Other Thoughts: I've installed dozens of internal drives over our family PC's over a couple decades. Like others say, it's OEM folks. Get your own cables, get your own screws, learn how to use device manager and off you go. Understand what you're buying. If you're complaining, go get a retail box at Walmart.

Agree with the comments about DOA - treat your drive with TLC, let it adjust to ambient air temperature before you plug it around. Never lost a drive before or during.

I've filled about 200GB of the drive already and it responds well as a second drive in a family machine, running XP.

I read all the comments here. 90% of the people either don't know what they are doing, or exaggerate their technical knowledge. Sorry for the dump, but it is what is.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away from WD Green Drives

Pros: They did not burn my house down.

Cons: I bought three different WD Green Drives. They each failed over a period of weeks and months. The third one just failed after nine months.

Other Thoughts: I have bought about seven WD Black drives. One was DOA, probably due to improper packing and shipping (UPS Ground). The others have all served me well. For now, I am sticking with WD Black drives and I suggest you do, too. And I suggest WD stop selling the Green drives until or unless they can make them work properly.
