Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD3200BPVT 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I have always trusted Western Digital and had good luck with them. When they work, they work well for the price.

Cons: This is the SECOND western digital hard drive that I've purchased in the last month that has been dead on arrival! The first one was a 1TB desktop drive, this one was a 320GB laptop drive. The first one would spin up and allow reading and writing, but once windows was installed, would say missing or corrupt files. Replaced it and had no problems. This one, which I purchased to replace a crashed laptop hard drive, won't even spin up! As soon as it tries, it makes some ugly noises and tries again over and over with no success. Very disappointed! This is the THIRD western digital hard drive I've owned that's been bad in the last year! Second one to be DOA within the last month. Currently, the failure rate is one out of 3 to 4! (so far 3 out of 8 have failed or been bad within the last year for me) That's not good in my opinion. I don't know if this issue lies with newegg's shipping method, or western digital, but it is causing me a lot of wasted time and money waiting for replacements!

ASUS Rampage III Formula LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: So far this motherboard has been working great! I've owned it for over a year and have not had any issues. I love the features it gives for over clocking and diagnosing hard ware issues, although I have not had any.

Cons: None so far.

Western Digital Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I purchased 4 of these drives for my last desktop project over a year ago. Over all I have been happy with them, however one of them already gone bad and had to be replaced. But, I think it was just a fluke. The rest of them and the replacement have not had any problems. I have things set up in RAID configs so no data was lost.

Cons: One of my drives went out after only a year, but the rest of them have been working great.
