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

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.

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'.
