4 out of 5 eggs4 Years and Just Died.. Caused Odd Problems

This review is from: Western Digital Blue WD3200AAKX 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: The drive was fast, and did not have any problems with it until the last day of it's life. It was pretty quick and I used it for my OS at first, and after I switched to ssd I used it for storage. A good drive.

Cons: When it died there was no warning, not like I was expecting any but guess I'm used to seeing sectors die and it give a few signs.

Another huge con that might just be for me, but my computer would not fully boot up. Got past the windows screen and just stopped with a line across the top. Thought it was my mobo or OS at first.. but after too much time fiddling around the computer booted up no problem when I unhooked the drive.

Other Thoughts: Good buy if you just need something fast, but don't use it for anything that you would not want a backup to.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad not great

This review is from: Western Digital Blue WD3200AAKX 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Worked well speed was good, no problems until a few days ago.

Cons: Shorter life than I expect from a hard drive, Normally I would get more than 5 years from a hard drive this one lasted a little over 3 before dieing due to disk corruption and bad sectors. My computer does run 24/7 but even still they usually last longer or at least give some warning of impending failure which this one did not.

1 out of 5 eggsBought 3 drives, 2 have failed in 3 months

This review is from: Western Digital Blue WD3200AAKX 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Relatively cheap if they didn't constantly fail

Cons: Out of the two drives we have used so far, both failed within about a month of use.

Other Thoughts: Our company is running some Dell T3500's. One of the original hard drives failed in it so we bought three of these; one to replace the failed drive and two more for "backups".

We installed the first drive and it failed within about a month. So we grabbed one of the backups and that one also failed within about a month. We are now putting in the third drive of the three that we ordered and HOPING to get at least a few months of use out of it before it fails like all the rest.

I would not recommend getting these drives. So far, two out of three have been garbage.

2 out of 5 eggsCould be alot better

This review is from: Western Digital Blue WD3200AAKX 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Have had a lot of success in the past with WD. For last 10 years I have only bought WD. Probably about 400 of them.

Cons: Managed to install and set up completely. Lasted a whole day. Glad I didn't give this new computer build to the customer yet as I would have looked like an idiot. Whole day wasted. Can't RMA it to WD. They only send you a refurbished back to you. Can't put that into a new computer build for a customer. Glad I can rma it back to New Egg and get a new one. I don't think that 12% failure rate for new hard drives is very good quality control. In fact it sucks. But the other manufacturers are even worse.

Other Thoughts: I would have given 1 star to WD if not for their past performance. Quality is going down though. As always New Egg gets 5 stars. Soon the SSD will be affordable to use on a regular basis. Can't wait.
