This review is from: WD Black² Dual Drive 2.5" 120 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD Kit WD1001X06XDTL
Pros: great idea the reviews made it look very promising. HOWEVER I think it is finicky and does not play well with some hardware.
Cons: this drive Does not work. first drive I got would not load the operating system. tried 3 different windows CDs. tried external DVD thinking my internal drive was the problem. Had to go to WD to send it back. the "Service Tech" was a real smart ..Alick and basically implied I did not know what I was doing, I have built hundreds of machines over the years. I had to go TDY for a few months came back and tied to put it in this weekend. first try was like previous. second loaded and I thought I was off and done. then came blue screens, then lock ups then just the windows 7 "i am thinking" circle forever till I hard reset the machine. then it was 5-6 tries just to get it back to the desktop. looked at the reviews here and started the trouble shooting. The firmware update looked like it fixed it, for one reboot, then the circle. Unfortunately I can not return this one since it is now been 5 months since i got the replacement. I am going to put it on the shelf above my desk to remind me every time I am ordering parts for the computers not to order anything Western Digital. I have a WD 1.5gig USB 3.0 HD that constantly connects and disconnects so this is strike 2.
Other Thoughts: I would probably call WD again, but after being talked down to like I was putting my first hard drive in a laptop ever I do not think so. I have a WD 1.5gig USB 3.0 HD that constantly connects and disconnects so this is strike 2. I have a saying " it is better to walk than strike out" so I will be walking away from western Digital.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great look keyboard and new HD screen sounded great.
Cons: THIS IS THE SLOWEST TABLET!! I had a T300 I gave my daughter to get this "new" one. It is HORRIBLY SLOW. if it is updating apps you can not do ANYTHING. set my 300 next to it and did a head to head, should have stayed with the 300. while I hav been typing this is is still locked upi downloading 14 updates, an is still locked up. touch screen is not working during htins time too.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice size and was perfect for application
Cons: DOA came out of box dead. I have been reading reviews and the pattern seems to be the 3rd one will work. I do not understand its rating 4 eggs with so much negative press.
Other Thoughts: never had to return an item in several years doing business with New Egg. I have had to replace a DOA item on every order in the last year. It kind of makes me wonder what has happened. I am going back to an online search first and not just order from New Egg without looking elsewhere. Its not just the hassle of a return but the lost time of dealing with it. I have better things to do than to do things twice as the result of bad parts.READ FULL REVIEW
