2 out of 5 eggs They don't make them like they use to 07/22/2012

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD15EARS 1.5TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros:

Easy clone & install with WD's verrsion of Acronis. Not overly slow. Large capacity. Great price. Handy WD utilities for finding out that your drive is about to die.... Easy RMA process. 3 years warranty.

Cons:

Exessive bad sectors after 18 months. Need to RMA.

Other Thoughts:

Having been in IT since the 80's I remember when HDD's were like CPU's - it was almost unheard of that they would fail. I still have 13GB & 40GB WD drives from the 1990's which worke fine. WD's management must be goaled only on units shipped - because if they had quality or brand perception in they goals - they would have never let a drive on the market that gets user reviews like this one. While I expect to get a new drive thru RMA - I cannot trust it for my backups - so what's the point? I do notice that the Samsungs get much better reviews....
