Built like a tank, but failed quick.

Pros: The drive I ordered lasted for almost 10 years with consistent use for games.

Cons: When the drive decided to quit, it did so quickly and I was unable to recover most of the data on it. Thankfully it wasn't anything of real importance.

Pros: it lasts :) 5 years and counting

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: this is the oldest component of my pc and it has outlived multiple other hard drives my wd 2tb green edition didn't even last half as long as this one and this is still going in fact i just re-installed windows 7 to it because the ssd i was using died too after only 7 months when this good old wd blue 250 is on 5 years now and still running strong

WD has done me right

Pros: used in a 24x7 box and worked great for 34 continuous months of moderate use.

Cons: drive motor failed.

In warranty (see other thoughts).

Other Thoughts: So RMA'd this with less than 2 months for the warranty remaining. Spent $10 to ship the failed unit to California from New York..... AND Western Digital sent me a BRAND NEW (manufactured FEB 2013) replacement.

so I would normally take two eggs away for the failure, but WD to their credit, did not replace an older failed drive with a refurb unit. So only minus one egg.

Going strong

Pros: Had HD since 2010 as primary drive. I have it partitioned several times, but the Windows (7 N) is on this drive. I say that just to note that it is in fact used as a primary drive quite well.

Cons: No Cons to report

Other Thoughts: Good deal at the time of purchase. Hard or impossible to beat NEgg's price!!!!
