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

1 out of 5 eggsRMA policy on DOA 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: Unsure, drive was DOA

Cons: Newegg's RMA policy on defective merchandise

Other Thoughts: My HDD arrived DOA and have tried it both internally and in an external enclosure. The drive beeps on startup (didn't know HDDs could even do that) and it fails to mount or appear in fdisk.

Went through the RMA process and found out that, even though I was shipped defective merchandise, I have to pay $12.xx return shipping.

Needless to say, I opted for a refund instead of a replacement so that I could order from another online retailer that is synonymous with a river in South America since I could have ended up with another DOA drive from Newegg and have to pay the return shipping once again!

5 out of 5 eggsYou must learn about OEM 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: I just received this today, and it is now being formatted. It is very quiet and cool, and will probably last a long time, but that remains to be seen.

Cons: No real problems for the drive itself, but it does not come formatted or even partitioned, so you must do that yourself.

Other Thoughts: After mounting this drive, it was not recognized by the OS. That is not particularly unusual with new OEM drives, and usually a couple of reboots are necessary before it is recognized by the motherboard BIOS and the operating system. However, my PC would not boot at all, and looking into my BIOS, even my boot drive (a Samsung SSD) had disappeared from the boot order; not good. If I were not familiar with hard drives, I would have returned the WD drive to Newegg as so many people do.

But not to worry. I figured that the WD drive needed a partition before it would be recognized by the OS (Win7 64-bit) so I got out my trusty copy of Parted Magic; if you don't know what that is, learn about it now. Then I booted into that and created a GPT partition, which is necessary for drives greater than 2 GB. Now all is well; my motherboard BIOS recognized my OS drive again, though it was out of order in the boot sequence so I corrected it, and it booted up fine.

MORAL: If you are not familiar with partitions, motherboard BIOS's and OEM drives greater than 2 GB, be prepared learn. Or buy a retail drive; they will avoid some of these problems,

1 out of 5 eggsBad 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: Cheap for 4TB of space.

Cons: Does not work can not put files on the drive without it dismounting itself in windows. Very poor product glad I didn't lose any files because of this drive, but that is only because I couldn't copy anything to it. Junk drive really unstable

Other Thoughts: I probably should have gone with a WD black over their green drive or gone with the two 2TB drives I was looking at instead of this. Drive is new though and not a refurb as I checked how many hours of power on time it has (13) so even when it dismounts itself it is still 'on'.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Unstable 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: Cheap for a 4TB drive.

Cons: I'm not sure what the deal with this drive is but every time I start to copy files to it the drive dismounts itself from the computer and requires rebooting to bring it back up I'm pretty let down by this drive so far.

Other Thoughts: I probably should have gone with a WD black and not a green all in all it would be faster to back up my files.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Overall

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

Pros: Drives are the cheapest 4tb drives around and work well.

Cons: They have the "green" feature that causes the heads to park after 8 seconds. Not an issue for desktops but it causes all sorts of problems on NAS setups. Not a huge issue however it is something buyers need to know

4 out of 5 eggsOk

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 storage for the price.

Cons: Nothing directly with WD.

Other Thoughts: Windows has a hard time recognizing the full 4TB and lists it as 2 separate drives. I'm not sure if that's Windows or WD to W7 interface.

4 out of 5 eggs2 out of 3 ain't bad.

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're 4TB of HD space at a fairly reasonable price. I got 2 of them on sale and then decided to get a 3rd to build a RAID 5 instead of a RAID 1 that I originally planned for. for the most part I'm happy with the purchase.

Cons: 1 of the 3 was DOA, but the worst part is Newegg charing me almost $13.00 for a replacement, which I determined I'd need the day I opened it. Why is it my responsibility to pay for the manufacturer's or Newegg's garbage? I've been a customer with Newegg for years and very loyal, but this is bullcrap. I'm highly considering doing a lot less shopping here if everytime I get faulty hardware I have to pay for it, and if the replacement is bad, I'll have to pay for that too. That's unacceptable. If it's not the customer's fault and it's well within the return period, then these charges shouldn't be on the customer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat storage hard 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: Price per TB is reasonable.

This 5400rpm is as fast as my 7200rpm seagate drive.

Runs a couple degrees lower then my 7200rpm hard drive.

Cons: Occasionally VLC stutters might just be VLC going to test this more.

Other Thoughts: Great hard drive but wouldn't use it for my boot drive or games I play often.

I see people taking off eggs for DOA when they haven't even tested it

4 out of 5 eggsGood Drive once replaced

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

Pros: Quiet, good value, good performance.

Cons: First one received was DOA.

Other Thoughts: The first unit received arrived within 2 days of purchase and was DOA (horrible clicking noise on boot up). RMA process requires you pay for shipment and they e-mail you a link to UPS label about 15 minutes after you pay for it. They got the unit back about 4 days later and processed both the credit (shipping + previous purchase) and placed the order for the replacement the same day. I got the replacement within 2 days and worked great. Whisper quiet and quick enough for a large storage device.
