Pros: Great drives that keep working when you get a good one.
5 yr warranty
Cons: For this one - and the other 6 Blacks I own - none
Other Thoughts: Follow up review to DOA on 10/20/13.
RMA arrived and tested good with WD Diagnostics. Like the other 6 drives I own - ages 2 - 6 yrs - my experience with the WD Blacks after the test it will keep working.
I certainly don't have the tech experience to offer suggestions or instructions to 99% of my fellow builders, but after reading lots of reviews on these drives, I am left wondering if everyone runs the full extended diagnostic test on a new drive before adding data. Just a thought, but I have always run the extended test first to ensure it works. If it does, they seem to last for a very long time without any problems. Just a thought.
Pros: Great when they work
New Egg's RMA process
5 years warranty - although never had to use it, once they work they seem to work a very long time.
RMA exchange shipping much slower then original purchase shipping.
Inconvenience and postal cost of returning drive for RMA.
Other Thoughts: Rating these great drives one egg is difficult, but I feel the DOA rate and inconvenience should be noted. But, when you get a good one, my experience has been they preform brilliantly for a very long time. Shame the DOA rate is what it is, but that seems to be normal for all drive manufacturers.READ FULL REVIEW
