2 out of 5 eggsLook elsewhere

Pros: When they are working, they seem to be all they're hyped up to be. RMA process is very good, although I wouldn't expect to have to use it on new drives.

Cons: Where do I start.... Ordered 2 of these for a new desktop build and set one drive up as a clone of the other. These were to be used purely as file storage. Right out of the box 1 drive was good and the other had SMART errors. RMA'd the bad drive to Newegg and got the replacement within a week. Fastforward a few weeks and the other original drive started receiving SMART errors. RMA'd that back to WD and got the replacement drive. Guess what... that drive was bad too so back to WD it went.

Other Thoughts: If I had to do it all over again, I would look elsewhere as to WD. The RMA process for both Newegg and WD was pretty simple and straight forward. To go through 3 bad drives to find 2 good ones seems like the quality control isn't there. I had my operating system running off a SSD and at least had 1 good drive operational while this all took place. The first 2 months of the PC build were rough due to these drives but haven't had any issues for the last 4 months.

3 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Great drive, worked fine until it crashed

Cons: I deducted 2 eggs because when the drive went bad Western Digital replaced it but the replacement had bad sectors. I had to return it twice before I received a good one.

Other Thoughts: I've had many different hard drives in the past. You get what you pay for. This drive was good, I used it to store my data on, not a primary drive. I lost all my data twice. I can't believe I had to pay shipping to return the drive twice before they sent me one that was good.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Bought 2 of these for my pc build over a year ago, great price for the space at the time. Since then I have upgraded to dual SSD drives but still run these in my rig to store non Windows and games (ie. music, movies, ect)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a hard drive for your windows or video game installs than I would recommend looking at an SSD instead.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked for a while...

Pros: The drive worked as it's intended.

Cons: All HDD's crash at some point

Other Thoughts: Bought this back on 2012. Up and died on my suddenly. This seems about par for WD drives in my experience. They work really well for a couple of years and then they just have a sudden death. Though, that is just my observation. It served the purpose for which it was bought.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo bad units.

Pros: When it works it has decent speed.

Cons: I ordered two of them. One didn't work at all - when installed my computer would freeze after about 20 minutes. The second one worked fine for about 7 months, then developed "cycle redundancy check" errors when copying files.

5 out of 5 eggsFast 1Tb Drive

Pros: • Fast spinup time (I run my OS on an SSD)
• Reliable (I have filled and emptied this drive 10+ times with videos without getting any errors)

Cons: • Not big enough for my purposes

Other Thoughts: • If you are going to be storing videos, 1Tb is only enough for about 5 hours of beginning AVI format 1080p (once the videos are formatted into wmv, they are 2.5Gb/hour)
