1 out of 5 eggscompletely DISsatisfied

This review is from: WD AV-GP WD30EURX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Large drive, good price

Cons: Intended use as a secondary - data - drive.
Drive is so slow that it's impractical for that use. Just copying 3/4 TB of data took over 3 hours!!! Contacted NewEgg and WD who both agree that the drive is NOT functioning right but it's going to cost me $25 + postage to return the drive. I am not happy!

1 out of 5 eggsBeware Return Policy & shipping charges

This review is from: WD AV-GP WD30EURX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: none

Cons: Can't rate HD - it arrived DOA and with the below policy I have no option but to pay the $30 Shipping fee to get a replacement. Not impressed. This will be the last time I do business with Newegg.ca there are other firms with much better replacement options if your item arrives broken.

5 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Need Alignment !

This review is from: WD AV-GP WD30EURX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: All new drives are correctly aligned for immediate use with modern Windows and Mac systems.

WD AV-GP drives run smoothly and quietly.

Can record TV shows while streaming already-recorded shows to several computers at once over home network, no problem!

Cons: Not really a con but older operating systems such as XP or Mac pre-OSX can be adjusted / aligned if necessary to achieve max. performance (see below).

Other Thoughts: You can check if your hard drive or SSD is correctly aligned. Click on Start and type Msinfo32.exe and hit Enter key. (In XP click on Start / Run then type Msinfo32.exe ) A window opens. On the left side of window click on Components / Storage / Discs. On the right side of window scroll down and find "Partition Starting Offset" value. Use your calculator to divide that big number by 4096. If the result is a whole number (with no decimal point) your drive is correctly aligned. WD and others such as Paragon offer a downloadable alignment tool if you need it.

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate

This review is from: WD AV-GP WD30EURX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Update: On a hunch, I went back to the WD site and told it I was using WinXP (not necessarily a lie, I have three computers that run XP and I could conceivably use this drive on one of them), and lo and behold, it let me have the "restricted" program. Still not thrilled with all the sturm und drang they run up to prevent customers from just downloading the blasted thing.

I now have the drive installed in this machine, and am waiting for the format to complete. The WD site said to select "Quick Format" so that I could use the drive right away. Yeah, right, *chuckle*. I'm running the whole format, partly because it's what I always do (back when I had a computer store I *always* burned *everything* in before releasing it to a customer), and partly because of the state of the hard drive industry these days.

Hopefully it'll be OK, hopefully the Thai factories are doing the quality work they did before the flood (isn't that a Grateful Dead song?), and after six and a half decades of waiting for the next sunrise, what's a few more hours of waiting for a drive to format?

Stay tuned... (and assume the *best* if I do not post another update!)

Cons: .

3 out of 5 eggsI am not pleased

This review is from: WD AV-GP WD30EURX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Good price, high capacity, fast delivery, nicely packaged, NOT MADE IN CHINA ("Product of Thailand")

Cons: Drive label provided URLs for support/downloading of advanced format tools. When I went there, it told me I needed to create an account and register my drive. This was a nontrivial PITA, my time means something to me.

After jumping through all the hoops, I was told that "Product Not Eligible for Registration" and under "Warranty Status" it says "IN LIMITED WARRANTY" with a big red circle/slash at the left.

When I then tried to download the software -- "WD Align Windows" -- it kept returning me to the same page each time I clicked on the "Download" button.

I did a web search, and what I found was that a LOT of people have this problem, and the only "solution" is to either cross your fingers, tap your heels, hope for the best, and download the program from some site in Ukraine, OR, enter a bogus drive model and then trick the WD server into releasing the software to you.

Neither of these (ahem) "options" really appeals to me.

I'm not real pleased. This is doubleplusungood in my opinion. I guess I'll try to install and set up the drive WITHOUT the tools the drive label gives me links to get, and hope for the best.

Since I have no idea if I even have a working drive, I have no idea of how many stars to give. Since this is the first comment, I didn't want to "curse" the product with a single star. I wish it would have let me simply leave the star field unchecked. Oh, well. Here goes nuffin...
