WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I bought WD blue because I wanted a little better performance over the green.

I bought 1 on 9-2 , and when I got that one, it had the 'click of death' right out of the box - couldn't even partition. Because I didn't try this drive until the 30 day timeframe was gone, I was forced to return this to the mfg, at my expense.

2nd one was ordered 10-24. I bought this as a standby for systems I had coming up to build, but figured I better test it right away. This one the system recognized, but as soon as I tried to partition it, the system hung, and never did complete the partition.

Running WD diags failed the drive with too many errors. RMA'd back to Newegg this time.

Cons: Usually WD drives are pretty dependable - but 2 straight orders in a row have me concerned.

Whether it's just the blue drives, or the batch - I don't know - but now I'm going to have to test every WD I order right away.

Other Thoughts: I ordered a 1TB toshiba drive in between these 2 orders, which worked beautifully.
I also ordered a 1TB WD black not long before, which also is working just fine.

30+ yrs in the business, 1st time getting 2 DOAs in a row. Here's hoping the replacement for the 2nd works.
