4 out of 5 eggsDrive Arrives Unformatted, So Format It

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD10EZRX 1TB IntelliPower SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Very quiet. Good value. Is ideal for media servers where the user values a quiet, economical drive with all the speed you really need.

Cons: The first drive arrived DOA, but Newegg exchanged it with zero hassle. That drive failed to spin up and was not detected in BIOS.
These OEM drives now arrive without any formatting, confusing most users who have panned the drive in their reviews. Fortunately, formatting an non-formatted drive is easy if you take two minutes to learn how to do it.

Other Thoughts: For some reason, WD has decided to ship their OEM drives without basic formatting, which probably indicates they no longer test the drives before selling them. To determine if the drive is functional, don't bother looking at the usual explorer window (looks like a bundle of file folders) found on the task bar on Win 7/8. After plugging the SATA and power cables into the new drive, simply restart your computer and go to BIOS. The drive should show up on the list of storage devices. Exit BIOS and continue booting up your computer.
In Win 8, you right-click on the icon in the task bar that lets you toggle between the desktop and start menu. Select "Disk Management" on the list and a small window pops up with a list of drives connected to the computer. Find the new drive on that list, right click it and select "format" from the pop-up menu. Wait for the formatting to be completed and you're done.

5 out of 5 eggsFaster than you would think

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD10EZRX 1TB IntelliPower SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Fast sata drive.
Highly efficient drive.
Quiet.
Low temperature.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I accidentally ordered this drive rather than the same WD blue drive, as my main PC drive.

Initially I was very worried as Western Digital states that in theory you should only use green drives as storage. In practice this just isn't true. I've seen the benchmarks and done my own with data transfer and game loading and this drive is just as fast as our WD blue drive in my other new computer.

As it turns out the design changes with the IntelliPower technology actually make this drive more efficient, not only in its use of electricity but in its access of data. It makes up for any slower speeds with higher efficiency. In all of my tests it preformed as well as the same WD Blue and sometimes faster.

Personally I believe Western Digital is avoiding giving us raw numbers from the green drive since most benchmarks will essentially show there is no reason for their blue drive to be sold any more.

3 out of 5 eggsA Good Slave Driver

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD10EZRX 1TB IntelliPower SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It is what it is. 5,200rpm not a fast drive.

Cons: It is a Internal slave drive. Not for games or high use of memory.

Other Thoughts: Wish they added that description on the top of the page. I had to return it after buying it. It isn't for replacing a main drive which is what I needed.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Solution for HTPC

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD10EZRX 1TB IntelliPower SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I have 4 of these in my HTPC in a RAID 5 and it is blisteringly fast and extremely quiet. They run very cool and work nicely in a hot swap environment. The price is right for what you get.

Cons: probably not good as a stand alone solution but in a RAID situation its great!
