WD FTW 03/08/2014
+Quick - Read / write speeds are quick, as I expect them to be with an SATA hard drive.
+Quiet - I can barely even hear the thing spin when booting up or copying files... nice!
-First one was DOA -- spent 2 days struggling before managing to run WD's disc diagnostics - all of which failed.
-It's incompatible with my flux capacitor... now how will I time travel?!?!
While it was rather disappointing and frustrating that the first one was DOA, Newegg has always been great and the RMA process was quick and painless. Within a few days I had a replacement WD drive in my hands.
I work in tech support myself, so I understand that DOAs happen sometimes, especially in the technology sector of business. I was disappointed, but it's not nearly enough for me to knock off any eggs.
I have another 500 GB WD Blue drive that's been kicking for well over 4 years now, and is still going strong. When I purchase a WD hard drive, I know I'm getting a quality drive that will last. I expect nothing different from this drive.
It's great to add as a storage/backup drive, or as a bootable drive, as I've had no trouble with it at all. I recommend WD drives to everyone.
