2 out of 5 eggsDon't buy with Linux

Pros: Price is ok

Cons: This thing would constantly shut out on me during backup runs. There's something in the firmware of this thing that is incompatible with Linux. I started to look for a replacement today and I thought of writing this review.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear user, Western Digital technical support only provides jumper configuration (for EIDE hard drive) and physical installation support for hard drives used in systems running the Linux/Unix operating systems. For setup or other questions beyond physical installation of your Western Digital hard drive, please contact your Linux/Unix vendor. As a troubleshooting step, we recommend connecting the drive to a windows computer and running either our WINDLG diagnostics software to check your drives health.

5 out of 5 eggsGood at what they do

Pros: Good price, large size, low heat output.

Cons: At 5400RPM, it's not the fastest HDD on the market, but you knew that (or should have known that) when you bought it.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this looking for a system drive, obviously. But if you need a big, cheap disk for archival storage (an audio and a video drive, in my case), these things are perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsLarge capacity for the price

Pros: This hard drive has a very large capacity for the price (around $.05 a GB) which makes it perfect for the budget HTPC/DVR. This drive has very sturdy construction and is virtually silent.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Quiet

Pros: I can copy from my Intel 520 SSD on a 6GB/s Intel controller to these drives connected to a 3Gb/s Marvell controller (paired as a Win7 RAID1 - dynamic disks). Large video files transfer at a sustained 1Gb/s.
A small file transfers much faster than 1Gb/s.
*as a note...I did not modify the idle time (no wdidle used).

Cons: Not really a con but.....
It appears that these physical drives can do sustained 1Gb/s even though the SATA interface might be able to handle 3Gb/s burst until the drive cache is full. I am using an i7-3770 Ivy CPU so I don't suspect noticeable delay in using Win7 to do my RAID1.
These drives indicate a two-year warranty; my older 1TB WD Green drive had a three-year warranty but I had to use it after 18 months so maybe I will get these replaced before the two-year deadline anyway.

3 out of 5 eggsFirst one died in a few weeks

Pros: Worked fine for a couple weeks and then died. Cyclic Redundancy Check error in Disk Manager, unable to initialize, and also wouldn't show up in BIOS when attached directly.

Cons: Broke after two weeks of use.

Other Thoughts: Awaiting a replacement. Didn't rate as one egg because all hard drives die. Will revise if replacement is DOA.
