1 out of 5 eggsWestern Digital goes downhill

Pros: Capacity

Cons: Unreliable

Other Thoughts: Western Digital used to be my 'go to' drive. I built gaming PC's for many years. I have never had so many problems than with WD drives. From portable, the Passport series is horrible, to internal, had a 1TB fail on me twice. They are the big boys, maybe too big now. Disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsSpeed

Pros: Fast. Even being 60% full, it loads up games with speeds comparable to my friend using his SSD.

Decent price for storage space/speed.

Silent, unlike my friend with his 15000 RPM HDD's.

Cons: None...

I guess it does tend to just sit in my computer. Doesn't do house work....

1 out of 5 eggspaper weights

Pros: look professional

Cons: three out of four drives have failed, one failed SMART test, one failed WD's Extended Test with "too many bad sectors", one failed as a Win7 Pro system drive after several months of light use, one passes WD's extended test and will hopefully be useful.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drives but why the inflation?

Pros: I bought 2 of these for a new system early 2013 and as of the end of 2014 I have yet to have a problem with either drive. At the time they had a great price and good speed without going the route of SSD.

Cons: None until I decided to order a bunch for a person home server I am building only to find out the price has doubled since I got them.

Other Thoughts: Guess I won't be buying this product again, not when you can get something similar with more room for the same price I paid for these 2 years ago.

5 out of 5 eggsWhen you need storage.

Pros: Reliable , Quick, Reliable and more Reliable.

There is a reason these were the number 1 pick for years on end. SSD put an end to most Hard Disk's but I still find my self picking up a WD Black every now and then.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good solid reliable Hard Drive. Great for loading games. Consistant performance in reads and writes even after 2 years.
Reads faster than any other 7200RPM HDD i used.

Cons: Bit loud. Nothing to extreme though fairly noticable over a WD Blue 10EZEX.

Other Thoughts: May not have the best wriing performance as the WD Blue is 30-40MB/s faster. When loading applications/games there is a significant reduced wait time.

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate to earlier review on 11/24/2012

Pros: Very fast, quiet, a lot of storage.

Cons: After 6 months of use this drive started to fail. RMA process was very fast and easy. Have had the replacement in for almost 1.5 years now no problems.

Other Thoughts: I have two of these running in my PC right now with no issues. Docked one egg because the initial unit had issues. Would still highly recommend.

3 out of 5 eggsGuess I received a lemon...

Pros: Worked fine while it lasted.
Great customer service from Western Digital.

Cons: Had to RMA in under one year because of too many bad sectors.

Other Thoughts: I guess that my luck was bad, because my drive didn't even last one year. RMA'd the drive and Western Digital sent me a replacement in the same week. Without the great customer service I probably would have given one star but it makes a big difference to know that the company will honor the warranty in a timely fashion.
