1 out of 5 eggsS.M.A.R.T anticipates failure

Pros: Great specs for the cost

Cons: The person I gave this as a gift contacted me after he installed it into his computer to tell me that it failed.

Was told the hard drive ran extremely slow and would sometimes not read and write properly while installing operating system (tried both windows vista and 7). An hour after installing the operating system, the SMART flagged indicating an anticipated failure of the hardware. This could be from multiple things, but going to play it safe and RMA it while I still can.

Other Thoughts: If you are deciding on a HHD to buy, I would recommend to skip this batch of refurbished hard drives. I am sorry for the person I gave this as a gift to for Christmas. But hey you might get lucky with a good one.

Will update review after RMA.

4 out of 5 eggs*Update* New Drive

Pros: I contacted WD about the Faulty Drive and got an answer the next day to ship out the drive to the facility so i did...
about 7-9 days later i check my RMA Status and i will be receiving a replacement within 3-4 days.

Cons: Had to pay shipping but that isn't really a con.

Other Thoughts: They where generous enough to give me a 1TB(WD10EARX) instead of the one listed here...

The customer service is great!!!
