5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive

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: A good drive. I am using two of these 3tb WD drives for primary storage alongside a SSD for the C: drive. The drive. I have noticed that these drives are cost effective compared to black drives, so I chose these.

Cons: The drive RPM at 5400 is less than that of black drives, but the cost savings are significant. Only if doing very hard drive intensive work should the black drives be considered, in my opinion.

1 out of 5 eggsWrong lable

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: Great Price for data storage drive. I've used the 2TB drive without issue and a 3TB Black WD drive, no problems. Very well packed with the large "hot dog" packaging around the unit in a tight fitting box.

Cons: In this case it appears to be a WD snafu. After working with the WD tech, thanks Cindy, it comes down to what I think is a mis-labled drive. It only shows as 746.39 GBs instead of 2,749.39 GBs like the Black drive does. Drive is being sent back to WD for replacement. Whatever the reason they are the people to discover the problem.

Hard to rate without knowing the real issue. Physical problem or labeling issue? Seems to act like a 750 GB HD. Don't have one of those so not sure what that formats out to. 732.4 GB maybe.

Other Thoughts: The Wd tech was very through and it was decided the best thing to do was return the drive via a RMA. I bought this drive due to is low cost and the 2 TB Green dive I have has done very well. I don't think this is a defective drive but that's for WD to determine. I have a few dozen of WD drives in 5 computers and then those used in Sata drive docks for simple storage and they have all worked well for me over the years.

WD will send a replacement and all will be well.

1 out of 5 eggsDead After Partitioning

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: Nice shade of green.... If you like green....

Cons: It died after I partitioned it. No spinning, no noise, no OS can recognize it, not even fdisk.

1 out of 5 eggsWas defective

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/GB of the drive is great if it works.

Cons: This drive was dead on arrival. I contacted newegg for a replacement and the replacement was also dead. Both the drives that were sent made a clicking noise. Windows could not create a GPT partition or an MBR parition and just showed an error when I tried to create one. I tried different SATA connections and different computers but both drives didn't work.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure this is a problem with the drives so much as a problem with how newegg ships hard drives. Both drives came in a small box and were packed in a bubble case with 1inch of padding around the drive. I don't think this is enough padding or boxing for a bare hard drive that is shipped. The packaging is enough for picking up a bare drive up from a brick and mortar store. But it seems like the drives are getting destroyed in shipping because of inadequate padding. I wouldn't buy anymore bare drives from newegg unless they change their shipping methods for bare drives. Luckily, I have shoprunner so the return labels were paid for, but it would have been infuriating if I had to pay return shipping twice for a drive that didn't work from day one.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsRunning Strong

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: Running as advertised.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Installed in a 2008 era PC. Gigabyte P35 mobo BIOS. ACHI found it, formatted with GPT in Win 7 64bit and have 2.8ish TB of storage space. Copied over roughly 1.5TB from the older WD Green drive with no issues.

4 out of 5 eggs

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: Relatively cheap, low energy use storage drive.

Cons: I ordered 4 but one was DOA. I won't blame WD for this one though, the box took a beating during shipment and the drive that failed was in the impacted corner.

Other Thoughts: Kind of slow.
