4 out of 5 eggsGood so far

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 day I received it I used western digital data lifeguard diagnostics and conducted a thorough read test of every sector of the 4GB HD which took around 10-11 hours to complete and finished with no errors. Immediately moved over 800 GB (only took around an hour) and so far so good. However, I've only owned a few days.

Cons: None so far but only owned it a few days.

Other Thoughts: In my opinion, I choose WD green because I have had really good success with them in terms of failure rate. Make sure you designate the hard drive to be a GUID Partition Table (GPT) instead of MBR so you can put all 4GB into one partition. MBR limits your partitions to 2GB.

1 out of 5 eggs50% Failure Rate

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

Pros: Pretty Good Price for 4TB. Good Specs

Cons: Only shows up as 3.6TB and it's not an SSD. First one I ordered, bad. Got replacement been running good for awhile. Just ordered 3 more. 1 of the 3 was bad. 2 out of 4 or 50% DOA rate. I can't say I ever remember having trouble from WD drives. This is flat out unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: Why isn't closer to 4TB, these aren't bags of chips that are 50% air.

4 out of 5 eggsLots of space

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 use this drive for nightly network backups so I can't really speak for its interactive performance. It provides a lot of space for very little cash, though. It's a solid performer.

Cons: After having used SSDs and laptop drives in my tower case for the past few years, I've gotten used to drives that are silent or super quiet. This drive is of course a little noisier, and when it's seated juuust right in the drive cage, it creates a nasty buzzing sound. That's probably the fault of the drive cage, though.

Other Thoughts: When they say "bulk bare drive", they mean it! It's literally a bare drive in a padded anti-static bag. Make sure you have mounting hardware and cables of your own.

4 out of 5 eggs90-days 24/7 so-far-so-good

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

Pros: Runs cool
Installs easily

Cons: Price- which hasn't fallen nearly as fast as warranty lengths.
Warranty- depressingly diminished, unlike pricing.

Other Thoughts: I caught it for a good price, and it seems to be working well in my UnRAID server, although by now, these drives' pricing should have fallen much farther.

1 out of 5 eggsBad sectors and data loss after two months

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, I guess

Cons: Unreliable
Costs money in shipping costs to replace a defective drive

Other Thoughts: WD's quality assurance practices have clearly gone down the toilet. Do not buy. Everytime I run chkdsk I lose 30-40GB of data. The WD LifeGuard software fails its quick test in seconds.

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

Pros: Eco friendly HDD, fast when it needs to be, power miser when in standby.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The working file storage for my 4K video editing. Move finished product to the 8TB NAS.

1 out of 5 eggsBulk Drives Damaged

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 ordered 6 of these build drives, the bubble wrap packaging popped during transit and the drives were physically damaged and dead on arrival, and newegg is blaming me for the damage and extremely difficult to get the RMA pushed thru....Very frustrating

Cons: Bubble wrap drive cases pop and drives get damaged

5 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Works great as a back-up drive. Quiet and reliable.

Cons: There is sometimes a slight delay to access files if the drive has been idle for a bit. Not unexpected for a this model of HD though.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks 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: Used two of these drives. Both worked flawlessly without any problems.

After using WDIDLE3.exe /D used to disable timer, tested drives in Win7-64 with GPT.

Then used in Ubuntu server 14.xx. Again GPT label's necessary to use (g)parted for >2T size. See "How to Create Partition on Linux for >2TB Size using Parted GPT" It was very helpful in setting up the drives.

Thank you Newegg.

Cons: None
