1 out of 5 eggsBoy I wish I read the reviews before I bought

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 have no idea. This drive was dead on arrival.

Cons: First I must say I have enjoyed Western Digital's Green Drives since I first bought their 2TB model some years ago, and I assumed their 4TB model would be of the same excellent quality. Unfortunately, it was not. I don't know what kind of quality control is going on at WD but something is very wrong for there to be so many people receiving dead and useless drives that don't even work from day 1. This is a huge hassle for me to receive a defective product and pay out of my pocket to get it replaced with a working drive.

Other Thoughts: I am upset to have to go through the hassle of shipping this back and paying out of my pocket for return shipping for a product that should have easily been proven defective had WD done more thorough testing on their drives. I am now weary of purchasing WD products in the future because of this widespread issue.

1 out of 5 eggsRMA'd both of these drives

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

Pros: They arrived at the house (very slow shipping by Newegg).

Cons: One drive was not detectable by the Synology diskless network drive and the other had bad sectors. Neither would install correctly, nor was I able to successfully build a volume with these on the Synology DS214+. This drive model is listed by Synology as compatible with the Synology drive, so it should not be a compatibility issue.

Other Thoughts: Bought two of these drives. Neither would build the volume in the Synology drive. Sent both back for replacement If the replacements do not work, I will be sending them back for a refund and will order through another vendor. This is unfortunate, as it is the first problem I have had with any Western Digital drives. Very unusual that both would be bad.

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.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Michael, we are sorry to hear about these unfortunate and abnormal circumstances. If we are able to, we would like to work with you and look into this further to determine what may have caused such an occurrence.

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.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Brent, we apologize for the continued inconvenience you have experienced with your drives, as this is not the expected outcome when working with these devices. Please be mindful that WD hard drives are precision instruments that can be affected by rough handling, vibration, or electrostatic discharge (ESD), and all drives are tested prior to shipping from our factory to ensure they meet our quality control standards. We would like the opportunity to replace your drives under warranty for you and receive these back for further testing and analysis to determine the cause of concern.

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.

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.
