Another Storage Drive

Pros: It's quiet. It's big (320GB w/ a 16MB buffer). It's WD. It's SATA. It was certified good enough to allow the extra 3 year warranty purchase, which I bought. The whole package (drive, XTD warranty and shipping -about $30. I'm a real cheapskate). It's a physical drive, which I like. QUICK access/data transfer time; moved 17 GB of data from a SSD to it in under 15 minutes.

Cons: None, that I can determine.

Other Thoughts: Bare bones is good. Even if a jumper isn't required to use it as a storage drive, it would be nice to have at least one jumper supplied. I'd recommend this drive type AND the seller from whom it came. The seller included lit that suggests "if you have issues/problems, we are available to help." that's always good. I am always optimistic that I won't need to contact a seller who seems this transparent and ready to help.

HDD has held out after 4 years of use

Pros: - At a very cheap price for a mid-low end hard drive, good for any simple workstation build

Cons: - Has gradually slowed down over time, these days it's a pain just to copy a few small files.

Manufacturer Response:
Hi Yakov G.,

Thanks for your interest in WD Blue Internal hard drive and thanks for bringing your concern to our attention

we have attached a few links below to our Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows utility and other troubleshooting links so you can test your drive for errors. We recommend using the drive with another computer.

“Testing a drive for problems using Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows”:
https://support.wdc.com/knowledgebase/answer.aspx?ID=940

Ensure that laptop and portable computers have at least 75% battery life available and are plugged into a power outlet and charging when transferring data.

The total amount of data on a disk and the relative size of each file can result in slow data transfer speeds.
Information:- A large number of files located in a single directory will transfer faster than the same number of files spread across multiple directories. 1 TB of large files will transfer much faster than 1 TB of small files.

Poor or slow performance is usually caused by system configuration issues. It is very rare that the performance issue is directly related to the hard drive. To ensure that the computer system is configured for optimal performance

All our products must pass our stringent quality standards before leaving our factory to be free from defects in materials and craftsmanship. We stand behind our products throughout the device's factory warranty period; and would be happy to help determine the root cause of this abnormal behavior and help replace your in-warranty drive for you. You can contact us and mention the support case below for assistance.

Still running.

2/ 5

Pros: Drive shows no power ons and no hours used. So it is "new"

Cons: 1) Drive is dated 2010. So, its 7 years old. Unused, but still 7 years old.
2) Seller states 2 years warranty THROUGH Western Digital. However, WD refused to register this product for warranty as it is an OEM drive. So what warranty does it have? None? 2 years? 1 Year? Through who?

Other Thoughts: Not sure I would purchase this again (or other drives from this vendor) simply because it's warranty is totally unknown.

small hard drive replacement

Pros: These replaced smaller and older 80 GB drives in a couple of old PC's. Well worth the price.

Cons: none yet.

Other Thoughts: They do seem to run hot but I don't think that will be a problem. Fairly quiet drives.
