WD black not quite what it used to be

Pros: fast, quiet, 5-year warranty

Cons: didn't last 5 years - began to fail at year 4

Other Thoughts: WD warranty process takes a few days to go through the back and forth email process, plus do the testing and grab the screen shots WD wants, so be sure to have your data backed up elsewhere just in case. Drive failed gracefully, didn't lose any data. Got a replacement drive (recertified) perhaps a week after beginning the Advance RMA process on their web site.
Replacement (recertified) drive failed after 8 months, had to point out to WD warranty people that the 5-year warranty on the original drive still wasn't up, still had 2 months to go. At least the recert drive failed gracefully, too, didn't lose any data this time either. The sent me another recertified drive, cost me another $10 to USPS the old one back, let's hope this one lasts longer than 8 months.

Observation: Got a box of dead drives in a corner of my workshop. If I didn't have the 5-year WD black drive warranty, these drives would have been the first WD drives added to it. WD black apparently ain't what it used to be.

5/ 5

Pros: Purchased it back in 2010, primarily used for gaming. It still sees heavy use daily without a hint of aging or failure.

Cons: The only thing I can think of is being just a bit loud, although that's kind of a whiny complaint.

Still works

Pros: Got this drive in '09, to this day it's still working just as when I got it.

Cons: Out of warranty already, but given that it's lasted 6 years, what's another 6?

Other Thoughts: Meanwhile I have a Seagate 3TB I got in '12 that I constantly worry about having fail on me.
