2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: WD disks are great.

Cons: I looked up WD 1 TB sata 2.5 inch disks on the New Egg web site and did not realize the great price I found was for 250 GB and not 1 TB disks. I tried to cancel the order but the New Egg web site would not allow it (within 5 minutes of order being placed). I was going to do an unopened RMA but I need the storage thus I have to deal whth much smaller disks. I am unhappy that when you look up a specific item you get a lot more an sometimes you can get fooled like I did. I will never purchase storage from New Egg again although I will continue to buy some things from them.

Other Thoughts: New Egg should modify the search engine to allow for exact match and these types of things could be prevented. This does not exiat today as far as I can see.

2 out of 5 eggsDid not last long

Pros: Good while it lasted. Performance was acceptable

Cons: Under very light usage, always in a case, never dropped, it died in 11 months.

Other Thoughts: I want a bigger drive anyway. Next time, I'll get one with a longer warranty, hopefully that will indicate higher quality.

5 out of 5 eggsWD Scorpio Blue 250GB

Pros: As with any WD drive you're basically shopping on auto pilot. There's never a thing to worry about in regards to longevity, duribility or overall performance.

Cons: Absolutely none :)

Other Thoughts: Long time buyer of WD drives from PATA to SATA and beyond, love the company for their craftmenship.

3 out of 5 eggsOn the up side, half of them still work.

Pros: Quiet, quick, reasonably priced.

Cons: Not very durable.

Other Thoughts: I go through about 10 of these a week. I maintain about 700 student computers and we use these hard drives. When the original hard drives from the machines break, they get replaced with these guys, and about half of the computers that have these hard drives now come back again for another replacement, but on the same note, the other half are still going strong. They're not bad drives, they just don't seem to hold up well in computers that are on the move all day.

1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointed

Pros: Pros? Lets see, Western Digital doesnt make cars. Thats the most I can say

Cons: Used to replace a customers failed hard drive. Less than a year it failed. Sent it to WD for replacement and the replacement lasted about 6 months or less. I am very disappointed in WD for making such poor quality drives. Im sure they are not alone but from experience I get alot of computers in for repair and they typically have WD drives in them. I do run into some seagates but not even half as many as WDs.

Other Thoughts: I think anyone considering this for a replacement drive would be better off with an SSD instead. You might spend some more but it will be worth it in the long run. If you are price oriented then I would suggest a seagate drive instead. Also, Pay attention to the warranty period too. A 1 year warranty basically says "We trust this thing to last a year and thats it!".

1 out of 5 eggsDrive DOA

Pros: It arrived in one piece...

Cons: Drive came DOA with "the click of death". I applied for the RMA process and they want almost 20% of the purchase price to send it back for the privilege or recieving another one.
