5 out of 5 eggsExcellent buy!!!

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD30EZRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Excellent price @ $90 each. Impressed with the new Newgg HDD shock resistant packaging (individual box + individual Pregis air cushioning package).
Purchased 3x 3TB WD Green harddrives to expand my Readynas Pro 6 from 3 to 6 configuration. Passed the Readynas hardware test by the system without problem and has been now re-striping to the maximum 6x 3TB. It takes a day per each drive to re-stripe and so far so good.

Cons: None so far.

1 out of 5 eggsCame DOA

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD30EZRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Appears to be a reasonable brand, price, and size.

Cons: Drive came with bad sectors even though it was packaged very well.

Other Thoughts: WD needs to beef up their quality and check the drives better prior to sending them out. I had bad experiences with them in the past and wanted to revisit.. big mistake.

1 out of 5 eggsWD Green WD30EZRX 3TB HDD

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD30EZRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Price is good with lots of storage space.

Cons: Odered 4 of this drive and after 4 months of use, one of the drive already failed and can not recover it. Very disappointed.

Other Thoughts: Been using WD HDD over 7 years now, the very first WD drive I purchased is still up and running, seems like the new WD Green drive aren't as good compare to the old one they made.

5 out of 5 eggsDied with no warning

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD30EZRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It ran like a drive, and sat there and stored my files.

Cons: Died with 0 warning whatsoever. Completely dead. Possible causes I've read could include the controller and not the drive itself.

This is after approximately 2 years where it sat and ultimately did nothing of importance. To the point that I am not even sure what all I had on it.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 2 months

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD30EZRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: low power, lots of space

Cons: Developed bad sectors after 2 months of light use

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive to store photos, movies, etc. It's installed on a machine that gets little use. After a little over 2 months of use, a bunch of directories got corrupted and I lost a bunch of files. Not good.

3 out of 5 eggsPlanned Obsolescence?

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD30EZRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Spacious
Cheap (relatively)
Quiet

Cons: Unreliable
Not so cool (temperature) operation

Other Thoughts: Meh. I purchased 4 new WD30EZRX drives (2 through NewEgg) a few years ago. The drives were used for Time Machine backups, rotating regularly. Now, a scant few months beyond warranty, one drive has failed altogether and the other is starting to act flaky. Unimpressed.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD30EZRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Cost effective storage. I had other WD drives that were quite reliable. These could have been if they worked initially.

Cons: The drives I received did not work on the system that had many other operational drives or in a USB doc.

Other Thoughts: Both drive arrived DOA. One was not recognized in the system and the other was intermittent. Swapped the SATA and power cable with other drives that worked in the system but no luck. Tried it on the USB doc on another system same issue. I had to return them both.

4 out of 5 eggsDOA, but replacement seems fine

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD30EZRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Low energy use
Large size
Inexpensive.

Cons: First unit arrived DOA

Other Thoughts: Although the first unit arrived DOA, I'm still happy with my purchase. It seems to be the perfect choice for my new home media server.

Slower read/write speeds aren't a problem give the servers primary objective, and the power savings will be appreciated since this computer is on 24/7.

In addition to power savings, the price point for the drive was the best I could find (3.3 cents per GB as of this writing).
