3 out of 5 eggsWD Purple- works on pc, but obviously not for one

This review is from: WD Purple WD30PURX 3TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive

Pros: works fine on a pc

Cons: 5.9 on windows experience index, which isn't fantastic

Other Thoughts: I am relatively new to pc tech and this was my first PC build's hard drive, because my "techy" friends helped, and i guess are not that good at computer building either and thought it would run faster... I have not come into any problems with it yet , it just isn't as fast as most hard drives like WD blue or Black because it doesn't have a consistent write speed.

1 out of 5 eggsWD Purple WD30PURX 3TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive

This review is from: WD Purple WD30PURX 3TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive

Pros: Was running cool and quiet during WD data lifeguard extended test. Low power consumption. Newegg processed RMA and provided UPS return label with no issues after chatting with tech support rep.

Cons: Failed during WD data lifeguard diagnostics test with error 08 - too many bad sectors. Estimated time for the extended test was 6 hours, HDD failed after 3 hours of testing.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive because it was on sale, and because WD claimed it to be reliable and capable of 24/7 work in surveillance system. I was planning to use is as a second hard drive in my home PC, but the drive failed extended test in Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostics test after 3 hours. Estimated test time was about 6 hours. RMAed it for refund.

5 out of 5 eggsWD 3TB purple hdd

This review is from: WD Purple WD30PURX 3TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive

Pros: Awesome for surveillance DVR's, Western Digital built these purple line hard drives for running 24/7/365. Installed the drive in an Esata enclosure and hooked it to my Samsung 16 channel SDS-5122 HD security system and now have over a year of continuous recording. It's Awesome!!

Cons: None that I can think of so far
