Bad Drives! 10/30/2013
This review is from: WD Green WD30EZRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
I tried to initialize and format two refurbished drives, and neither drive works. One was very slow, and the other won't work at all.
Dear gdavisloop, it is unfortunate that you have experienced two drive failures, as our drives are all rigorously tested to ensure they are in good working condition before leaving our warehouse. There are many variables that could affect the drives integrity between leaving our warehouses prior to being installed in a computer. We recommend installing and running our Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows (WinDLG) utility for Windows users, or running Disk Utility for Mac users. Information regarding our WinDLG utility and Disk utility can be found at the following link.

Regardless of the reason for your drives defect, we stand by our product, and would like to replace your drive for you directly, no questions asked, and investigate to determine the root cause of the failure.
