2 out of 5 eggsUnlucky Lemon

Pros: It was on sale, it has good storage capacity, and it's supposed to save power and what have you.

Cons: Broke after less than three months use.

Other Thoughts: I bought it to replace the old 1TB WD Green I'd had for several years. Since it was on sale, it was a no-brainer. Installed Windows 7 on it and after a few weeks the computer was acting janky. I thought it was an OS system, but now I can't re-partition the disk and I can't reinstall Windows or Kubuntu. Chances are it was just an unlucky lemon, but I can't help but think the reason it's failed is because it was refurbished.

2 out of 5 eggsLast time I'm buying refurbed drives

Pros: price

Cons: 1 of 4 DOA, the hassle

Other Thoughts: I bought 4 for a FreeNAS box, but 1 is DOA. The other 3 are working as of now. You get what you pay for.

2 out of 5 eggsBoth failed within weeks of EOW

Pros: Purchased two drives to use standard desktop config. Usable size was as advertised. No difficulties to install.

Cons: Both died with weeks of the end of the rather short warranty period for refurbished drives.

Other Thoughts: Hmmm...maybe refurbished drives aren't the way to go...

4 out of 5 eggsGood - If you Get A Good One

Pros: More drive than most people will ever need. Very quiet.

Cons: I bought one of these new and it lasted around 11 months before it just went bad. Western Digital is a great company though, and sent me a replacement right away. The replacement drive has been working great with just a few hiccups. I hope this one lasts longer than a couple of years. I have several older IDE Maxtor and W.D. drives that are at least 12 years old and going strong. They don't make them like they used to. :(

2 out of 5 eggsFailed Drive - Disappointed

Pros: Huge drive, especially when I bought it, and was a fantastic price.

Cons: Failed Slowly. Performance of computer suffered horrifically, never suspected the HDD until I suddenly lost all the data on the drive. Tried re-installing Windows and Linux and suffered severely poor performance. Disk seemed fine in tests, but replacing it with a spare HDD eliminated all performance problems. I am very disappointed, I have always exclusively purchased WD so hopefully none of them fail.
