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).

1 out of 5 eggsbought 2, both bad

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: none presently, if you can't use a hard drive as a hard drive.

Cons: ordered 2, one was DOA, currently dealing with returning the second one failing within a week of power on time.

Other Thoughts: don't forget to check SMART parameters after a long format :< could have returned the second with the DOA drive

1 out of 5 eggsBig mistake

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: WD

Cons: Doesn't work. Ordered two of these as WD has long been my favored hard drive source. BIOS sees the drive but when it comes to partitioning nothing shows up. Can't test what I can't install.

Other Thoughts: Motherboard is a GA-MA78GM-US2H

1 out of 5 eggsGood while it worked

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: Worked great, for awhile.

Cons: Count me in with the many people who had a dead drive after a long period of use. Well, its not so much dead as it is starting to die. It takes my system 15 minutes after windows bootup just to recognize the disk. Filet ransfers and reads are at 700kb/sec read, and it takes me 10 minutes just to delete a 200mb file. The SMART data says the drive is still good, but obviously its not. I tested it in a USB enclosure as well to make sure its not the cable. This problem happened after 15 months usage, only a few months after the end of warranty. I'm not the only either in these reviews that had the drive die right after the end of warranty. I also had a 4tb WD green drive die on me a week after use on a different computer.

Other Thoughts: I've been a happy WD customer for many years and it seems like their drives are getting less and less reliable the bigger they get. It seems to be going down hill in models larger than 2tb. If you're thinking about getting a high-capacity WD Green drive to store important data, you might want to think again. Next time, im going Hitachi (HGST) or if I have to go WD, it's going to be a RED or BLACK edition drive.

4 out of 5 eggsBig 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: Great drive. Delivered on time. Great for secondary storage as the drive powers off when not in use. This is my second one. My 1.5 TB is running for 3 years strong.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks 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: Western Digital. I have had lees trouble with all Western Digital Drives than any other. Some pros for greens as far as power efficiency and price.

Cons: Green. I prefer black I have 4 of those and one other green. Greens are not that much slower when it comes to R/W speed, but you can definitely feel it.

Other Thoughts: It's already full! Looking forward to the days when 4TB ssd drives are this price.
I wanted to deduct an egg because it is green but I simply could not fault the drive for that since I knew that going in.

2 out of 5 eggsDOA - Return shipping not free - not a bargain

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: none

Cons: DOA - the cost of return shipping obliterates any savings

Other Thoughts: Bought two of these at the same time; one is fine, other was totally DOA on arrival. BIOS wouldn't even recognize it. Tried on two PC's.

50% success rate doesn't seem so hot to me, QA must not be very good. Being forced to pay return shipping for a defective product seems criminal and is more than 10% of the original price of this drive.

Really not a happy customer.

1 out of 5 eggshard drive won't initialize fully

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: none

Cons: I bought this drive to mirror another 3tb I already had. This one wasn't initialized and so windows promptly partitioned it to a 2tb plus 1tb. I went to WD web site, (not user friendly) and they just blamed Microsoft rather than take ownership of a product that may or may not work. I thought they would have a solution but no luck All I really want is a 3tb drive, all one partition. Now I have to return this "broken" unit. I would not recommend this drive.

5 out of 5 eggsTons of Space

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: These things work pretty nicely. I ordered two of these and both work amazingly. I was kinda scared at first because I could not figure out how to make my system recognize more than 2 tb til I changed em to GPT instead of MBR. After that it found the 2.7tb that this drive is after formatting. I'm using them inside of an HTPC, so I think these are more than sufficient to store all my movies. I've been loading it up with 3D Bluray ISO's and they haven't even made a dent in em.

Cons: I don't have any cons for these. Both of mine work great, no DOA like some people have mentioned.
