2 out of 5 eggs50% Of my hard drives were bad out of the box

This review is from: WD Re 1TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 inch WD1003FBYZ

Pros: Its a good price point for the performance and stability promised

Cons: I purchased 2 of these drives for a RAID. 1 of 2 is defective right out of the box, WD Data Lifeguard says its bad blocks that are not repairable.

Other Thoughts: I am a system builder and have been using Western Digital for over a decade. Rarely do I receive a bad unit out of the box. I question whether or not they test the drives at the factory. It took the Western Digital Data Lifeguard app about 30 seconds to figure out the drive has bad blocks.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Enterprise Quality Out Of The Box

This review is from: WD Re 1TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 inch WD1003FBYZ

Pros: Fast enough. Works well in a RAID array.

Cons: One out of four had too many bad blocks making it a brick.

Other Thoughts: I always test hard drives right out of the box using the manufacturer's diagnostic software. I've been bitten too many times by new drives being defective.

These drives were bought to replace seven year old WDC 500GB drives that were causing problems in a RAID10 array on an Adaptec 6805E.

One out of four had too many bad blocks and had to be returned to NewEgg.

Once the replacement drive arrived and tested OK. I created the array and ten days later it is running perfectly.

1 out of 5 eggsReally Western Digital.....

This review is from: WD Re 1TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 inch WD1003FBYZ

Pros: I use these on the enterprise level for our customers; these are typically reliable and are TLER enabled so that RAIDS aren't an issue.

Cons: Bought this drive for my personal use about 2 months ago for my file server. Got some clicking noises and the drive would not provision on my raid controller; DOA. Not a big deal, drives come DOA and this drive was only going to be added into a RAID 5 pool so no hurry to get this in. My fault for waiting so long to install (waited a month, so new egg wont take it back). RMA the drive to western digital and just got the replacement drive back. They send me a 2TB SE drive back..... really...... I paid for the quality of a RE4 drive, which really showed, and I get a lower class SE drive back; could care less about the capacity just as it's the same. I'm pretty sure there isn't a shortage of this drive nor is this line being discontinued anytime soon. Thinking of migrating the entire array to some constellation drives, albeit a pain in the rear, at least Seagate will RMA me apple to apples worth of drives!

Other Thoughts: From Western Digital's Site: The model number you receive from us may vary from the model number that you shipped in, or that is listed on this screen. Due to product availability, we sometimes will make substitution with similar or better products.

Yea, its similar to the fact its a hard drive you shipped back (got that part right at least), but I expect the same CLASS or better CLASS of drive back with same or better capacity. This is a RAID array this is going back in and class of drive does matter when matching against the other disks in the array.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

This review is from: WD Re 1TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 inch WD1003FBYZ

Pros: Nothing right now.

Cons: Unreliable, not durable, sector errors, SMART errors, useless.

Other Thoughts: I bought a pair to add to my current RAID5 setup with three RE4 1TB drives that have been error free for a year. I was able to add the pair to my setup without needing to delete and reinitialize my RAID5. During the migration of the data, one drive had a SMART failure. I decided to stop the migration and delete my RAID5. It was a good thing I backed up all my data before all this. I sent the first one for RMA. I copied my data to the 2nd new drive and then I got some bad sector errors. I am in the processes of RMAing this one as well. I dont know why all of a sudden Im having bad luck with WD. This next round of drive cause errors, Im switching brands. I also dont like how slow newegg's RMA process is.

1 out of 5 eggsD.O.A.

This review is from: WD Re 1TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 inch WD1003FBYZ

Pros: NONE

Cons: D.O.A. Order 2 just in case I got a bad 1 and both the same, just head clicks for 2 seconds the nothing. Egg RMA right away but it is still irritating WD.

Other Thoughts: Guess I'll start order 3 when it's crucial to get a good 1.
