2 out of 5 eggsWD Drives not reliable

Pros: Worked well for 14 months as it should have for much longer.

Cons: Failed after 14 months. Now I read reviews and wonder if I was lucky it worked for that long. There are only two companies making drives now.

Other Thoughts: I paid $59 in May 2011 we are being ripped off by the new Duopoly. We should be getting a 3 GB drive for this price now. SSD's a bigger rip off. Flash is cheap but no cheap SSD's.

1 out of 5 eggsWDAAY0015HNC-NRSN a rebranded model #?

Pros: Lots of storage space.

Cons: What you see may not be what you get. The model # on the outside of the box may not be the model of the drive inside the box. Both drives I purchased had a white sticker on the bottom of the box identifying the drive as a WDAAY0015HNC-NRSN model with a serial number that matched the number printed on the physical disk sticker. The Model #'s on each of the 2 disks were completely different from each other and did not match the model number found on the box sticker.

Other Thoughts: Bought 2 retail boxes labeled as Model #WDAAY0015HNC-NRSN. The serial #'s on the outside of both retail boxes matches the serial # on the physical hard drives inside (the boxes did not show signs of tampering and appeared to be never opened/ still originally sealed). The Model number on one of the physical hard drives is the WD15EADS-00P8B0 (32MB cache). The Model number on the other physical hard drive is the WD15EARS-22Z5B1 (64MB cache). After searching the alternate model # ending in '00P8B0', I discovered many reports of terrible performance, unhappy reviews, and buyer complaints. A search of the model # ending in '22Z5B1' returned only issues with RAID operation. Outside of this I have not opened the anti-static bags and am considering returning both drives.
