1 out of 5 eggsBad drive, bad,bad, bad

This review is from: WD AV-GP WD20EURX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail

Pros: I'm thinking :-)

Cons: After installing the drive I began to have boot up problems with the machine. I see I am not the only one who has experienced this.
After taking the drive out of the machine, all was good again.

Other Thoughts: Drive RMA'd this morning, will be shipped back tomorrow. Newegg rates A-1 with me in customer service.

Over the years I have had many WD drives, I believe this is my 1st one with problems.

I will buy a WD drive again when I need a spinner.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Bill,
Western Digital takes great care in ensuring that all of our drives are in good working condition before they are shipped to our retailers, which is why it is unfortunate you received a non-functional drive. Please consider contacting our support, should you require any warranty replacement assistance. We can be reached at (800) 275-4932, or via our support website at: http://support.wdc.com/rs

2 out of 5 eggsGood value, works fine

This review is from: WD AV-GP WD20EURX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail

Pros: Very good value, WD has a low fail rate and no problems so far.

Cons: Drive is fairly slow even when connected via SATA3. Benchmarks should be higher than 1TB alternatives and instead are below.

Other Thoughts: Good for storage, but if I had to do it over again, I would not install a main OS on this device because of speed issues.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Mrdurden,
We want to extend our apologies for the issue you have experienced. Please note that our WD Green Power line of internal hard drives (Including the WD AV-GP) are designed for use as secondary storage drives in PCs, for external enclosures and other applications for which low noise, low heat and low power consumption are the priority. WD offers industry-leading product variety for different market needs, and when speed/performance is a priority then we recommend the WD Black family of disk drives.

If we can be of any further technical assistance, please contact us at 1 (800) 275-4932, or via our support website at: http://support.wdc.com/rs

5 out of 5 eggsInitial impression...

This review is from: WD AV-GP WD20EURX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail

Pros: Quick delivery from Newegg. Packaging was perfect. Very quiet HDD! I'm using it to run backups - have run one backup so far, all OK.

Cons: Nothing so far.

Other Thoughts: HDD is marked 'Made In Thailand'.

My system info:
- Mac OS 10.6.8
- Partitioned and formatted with Apple Disk Utility
- HDD is in a MacAlly Firewire external exclosure connected to my MacPro tower
- Got the 2TB version of this model
- Using Carbon Copy Clone to run backups.

5 out of 5 eggsNew Replacment Drive

This review is from: WD AV-GP WD20EURX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail

Pros: This is a very quite drive with a low power consumption rate. It has a huge space capacity for storage and back up files. I use a SSD as my primary OS drive, so this is perfect for what I need. The last thing is.....GREAT PRICE!!!!

Cons: This HD has a slower RPM speed. Not the best for a primary OS drive. The speed is not really an issue if you are using it mainly for the storage.

Other Thoughts: I sure hope that this HD will live up to the WD name. I still have some WD IDE drives that are still going strong, so I hope this one will do the same!!!!

1 out of 5 eggsmaybe the second one...

This review is from: WD AV-GP WD20EURX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail

Pros: Packaging was super!

Cons: DOA!

Other Thoughts: The drive started to format but never made it through the process. It was then not recognized on any machine. The RMA process is going well. I will update when I get the drive to mount and some data on it.
