1 out of 5 eggsI have your returned drive

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: It's a big drive.

Cons: I'm only writing this because I received someone else's drive. I bought a new one and got this used drive full of what looks like someones entire photo collection going back at least a decade.

Other Thoughts: I'm only writing this because I received someone else's drive. I bought a new one and got this used drive full of what looks like someones entire photo collection going back at least a decade. Hopefully you have backups.

1 out of 5 eggsWD 4TB - AVOID

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: Large capacity

Cons: Drives fail more than I've ever encountered. I got 4 of these originally, upon receipt 2 of the 4 were bad / wouldn't read at all / DOA. So I sent those 2 in for replacement. Then 1 of those was fine, but the 2nd was also DOA. Now I have another one of the ones that was fine failing and losing files. So that makes 4 drives out of 6 that have failed. I'm not exactly trusting the other 2 at the moment... AVOID THESE AT ALL COST!!!!!

Other Thoughts: I love WD, in fact I AVOID Seagate...but these drives are not worth it at all.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid data storage

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: Lots of storage space. Reliable. Nothing fancy about these drives... they just work.

Cons: Other than the time to perform a low-level format, none.

Other Thoughts: Not the fastest of drives, but both drives are only being used to store photos, video and my music collection.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns Great!

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: I got this to store videos and backups. Speed is good enough for being an HDD. I didnt buy this for my OS and main programs, I got it for the space.

No problems performance/stability wise.

Cons: A bit bulky - It's super tight on my HAF-X HDD case-holder - Just something to pay attention to

5 out of 5 eggsWestern Digitals simply the best

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: Great drive, as always. Couldn't ask for a better 4TB HDD. came shipped in a great protective case, slipped right into multiple HDD enclosure and starting writing data immediately.

Cons: NEED BIGGER DRIVES! Price could be cheaper, but I am a cheapskate, so actually very competitive to other sites

Other Thoughts: If you are going to buy a HDD you cannot go wrong with WD drives. Superior to Seagates.

3 out of 5 eggsCaution Ordering in Bulk

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: Available in large quantity, almost unbeatable price per gig. Have had success with WD Green series in the past (have used a large quantity of the 3TB version and they work great).

Cons: Packaging, believe it or not. Because this is a bulk product and you get the bare drive, there is no guarantee that the shipping material will be adequate protection for the drive.

Bulk/OEM drives are typically shipped in boxes with foam cutouts that hold 20 hard drives (at least from Western Digital). Many times these cutouts will be used with large orders (like mine - 15 drives) and put in the same box they were shipped in.

My 15 drives were placed in the foam case (good so far), wrapped in a good amount of bubble wrap and taped securely (also good), and then placed in a flimsy box that had a good 3-4 inches of space on every side of the drive package, including above it. Although some inflated plastic-bag packaging material was used, it wasn't nearly enough. The 15-hard-drive-brick was free to bounce around the confines of the larger box. The weight of the drives caused the bottom of the box to sag.

Mechanical hard drives are prone to failure when exposed to shock. I had to RMA this shipment of drives; I can't risk having drives fail due to something that happened before they were in my hands.

Other Thoughts: I called Newegg to discuss the physical condition of my shipment, and customer service was a pleasure to deal with (considering the circumstances). I sent pictures of the packaging, and we agreed on getting this order shipped back and a replacement order shipped out once the RMA is received by Newegg. This puts me a week or so behind my project schedule, which I'm my boss will remind me about constantly until the drives come in.

I ordered 15 drives to distribute into 5 different workstations. I'm expecting to order 90 additional drives over the next year or so (in phases). I'm hoping the experience with this order is a single occurrence.

I was going to wait to review this product until I've used it some (I have used the 3TB version in large quantity and they work great), but Newegg sent me an email at 1:45 a.m. asking to review this product, so here I am. I will update this review once the replacement order has arrived (hopefully with nothing but positive things to say).

4 out of 5 eggsGood drive

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: Low power reqs
High Cap

Cons: none really

Other Thoughts: Win7 64bit only recognizes 2.19TB by default. Have to bypass that by changing to GPT disk. (Was not aware of this beforehand)

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Bulk Bare Drive

Pros: The fact I can take it back to the store without a hassle... oh wait, never mind, I have to pay a hefty sum to ship back their mistake.

Cons: Dead on arrival. Thanks guys.

Other Thoughts: Drive was not working and just a few seconds of testing revealed sectors/read errors and S.M.A.R.T. data indicating complete failure at any moment. Drive vibrations were moderately heavy as well which also isn't a good sign. So pretty much they just "forgot" to test this before leaving the factory as it would only have taken a few seconds to realize it was bad. At over $10/pop, I'm not willing to risk getting a new one.

Also, I chose this drive because there seemed to be way fewer low rated reviews about DOA/defective merchandise. If this review gets culled, then I'll know Newegg reviews can't be trusted to get an idea of the reliability of the product.
