Western Digital WD RE4 WD1003FBYX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great drive and have had no drive issues, so far.

Ther eis the 30 day return policy from Newegg but one of the attractions was the 5 year limited warranty with WD.
When I entered the drive serial number at the WD website I was informaed that there is no warranty since the drive was sold to a system integrater. WHAT?? Why?? The drive was a bare drive but was not advertised as returned.

Western Digital Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very good drive, works very well in a non-raid configuration.

Cons: Flaky in a raid configuration. I was using the drive in a SSD acceleration configuration and the drive would drop out of raid configuration about every month or so.

Other Thoughts: Not the drive's fault, i should of read more before purchasing. I bought a RE4 1Tb drive to replace and it looks good so far.

Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s with NCQ 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy install with no issues. Drive was seen immediately and was able to clone my old drove with no issues. Booted first time. Like the fact I can now use ACHI. The 4 GB SSD portion has GREATLY accelerated booting up.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Made sure that the firmware was the latest, SD28, prior to loading anything on the drive. Thinking I avoided a number of problems by doing so.
