1 out of 5 eggsvery bad

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Good storage space I guess, packaging was very nice.

Cons: Didn't work

Other Thoughts: I went to boot my new computer, Intel 5960 corsair 32 GB Dominator platinum ram, corsair AX1500 power supply, asus x99 motherboard, everything booted fine but my HDD caught fire and melted half of my drive bay, and almost hit my motherboard. Purchasing a seagate drive, would try to get anyone to not buy from WD. But newegg itself has amazing service

2 out of 5 eggsFirst One DOA

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Fast for a HDD.

Large capacity. I can remember when 4MB was huge.

Quiet. Despite their reputation for being noisy, all my Blacks have been quiet. I can barely hear them running in an internal dock with my ear right by them. I can't hear them at all in my machine.

Cooler than the Blacks' reputation would suggest. The 4TB is running one degree Centigrade cooler than the coolest 2TB in my machine.

Cons: Cost (but, then again, I'm cheap). Fortunately, I caught it on sale.

Heavy. I may have to register this one as a lethal weapon!

In the case of the first HDD, it was Dead On Arrival. That cost two stars. I also had to pay for return shipping on the DOA HDD. That cost another star.

Other Thoughts: The first HDD I received was dead on arrival. It wouldn't even spin up. In all fairness, the drive was well packaged but the carrier could have handled it too roughly for even the padded packaging—heavy duty pillow wrap— to be able to handle without damage to the HDD.

NewEgg promptly replaced it and the second one is working just fine now and passes all the tests I threw at it.. If it should fail at a later date, I will report back. The thing that galls me most is I had to pay for the return shipping of the DOA HDD.

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: I have 3 of these drives (owned 1 week to a year). So far, all three peacefully do their job -- none has failed. When on sale, price was reasonable, at $200 a pop.

Cons: A bit slow, compared to similar (but lower capacity) 7200RPM drives.

Other Thoughts: For data storage, these drives seem to be the best compromise between reliability, performance and price.

1 out of 5 eggsDrive Failure

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Great storage capacity, excellent speed.

Cons: Purchase drive in 02/2014. Now in 10/2014 drive has 100% failed. It will not pass the WD diagnostic tests. WD has authorized RMA to replace the drive with refurbished drive....not a new one.....a refurbished drive. Makes you wonder where they come up with the refurbished drives........are they failed drives from other users? Not too encouraging. However, disappointed with the inconvenience of having to go through all this hassle. In the past, the WD drives have always been excellent quality. Obviously, something has changed. Looking at the reviews, it appears that there has been a surge of failing 4TB drives.

1 out of 5 eggsAll data....LOST!!!!!

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Price
Storage

Cons: Life Span
Lost all DATA
Slow Read Speeds
Slow Data Transfer Rates

Other Thoughts: Hard Drive died in least than one month from purchased date. I tried new SATA cords, USB connection and all failed. All 5 SATA ports on motherboard are working and detects my SSD, DVD Drives, & my old 1TB WD HDD no matter what port I move them to. Lost of my HD movies, over 1.27TB of data....GONE. Drive is not detected in BOIS nor Windows in Device Manager. No data recovery programs can locate this drive either, should've gone with an HGTS Drive instead. Drive died on me once but was able to recover it with Recuva & Truesize software, but that's only because it could be detected, now all I hear is an annoying tickering sound coming from the drive, such a waste.

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of Money

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Storage Size

Cons: Never had an issue with WD until now, I bought this drive because I needed more storage for my blue ray movies. Now in less that a month, this drive has died on me and I've lost of my movies in the process. Tried to restore it but nothing seems to work, I tried new SATA cord, power cord, SATA port, but drive no longer shows up in Windows or BIOS.

Other Thoughts: I hate this return process of defective items, why cant Newegg or WD send a replacement 1st, then we ship back the defective drive? I rather just purchase another drive at a local retail store then go back to return this drive and get my money back right then and there...Never will I buy another drive from WD or online for that matter.

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: 4TB! sounds like good specs.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: I Love the Capacity and got this at a great price for only $218!
Was able to copy my entire Media Library in less than an hour "800gb and +". I feel like my data is well protected. My old harddrive was starting to ware out. Just got work for a wedding video and so far my render times have improved!

Cons: When I partitioned it it shows a actual size of 3.68 TB but I wont complain it took me 3 years to fill up my old 2tb

Other Thoughts: Definitely recommend and will purchase another in the future!
