7 years of great use.

Other Thoughts: Rest in peace, my first gaming drive.

Ran for 7 years

Pros: Worked well as OS system boot drive for about 6 years and then a data drive the last year. Running fine for 7 years is as much as can be expected.

Cons: Recently bad sectors have appeared, imploring me to replace this drive. Drive appears to still work, but I want to avoid silently losing my data.

Meh...Worked beyond the warranty periods

Pros: Puchased 2 drives in 2011 to install in a NAS. One started reporting bad sectors after 3 years of use (24x7) and the other died after 5 years.

Dependable

Cons: I tad bit on the slow side.

Other Thoughts: I've had several WD, Toshiba, Hitachi, and Seagate drives in multiple configurations (eHDD, internal disks, NAS, RAID) and I've now had 4 WD drives go bad over the past 10 years, but never had any issues with the others. I will probably buy WD in the future (if it's the cheapest for what I need) but if price is the same with another brand I will lean away from WD.

Unusually BAD WD Drive - An Anomoly

Pros: High capacity
Reasonable price

Cons: Numerous bad sectors beginning with SECTOR ONE

Other Thoughts: I don't usually have to write bad reviews on the hardware I buy, especially my favorite brands, but in this case it is necessary. In Jan 2011, when I was doing some projects, I bought three WD HDDs for building, expanding, and emergencies. One of them was a BLUE label WD Caviar 1TB drive Model (WD10EALS), serial WCATR1759622. It stayed on the shelf, sealed until May 23, 2013 a few weeks after my wife suffered a stroke and I simultaneously needed a new disk. I opened the pkg and tried to partition and format it, but was unsuccessful. I opened another disk and dealt with the problem and put this disk aside until I had time to look at it. Last week, I wanted to use this 1TB Caviar in a USB bridge to record an image of a Netbook. I found I could not get the Netbook to read the disk and neither could two other computers. I tried running one testing utility unsuccessfully and finally used MiniTool Partition Wizard Free for a surface test. It immediately began to report bad sectors starting with SECTOR ONE. In fact, of the first 10 blocks on the screen, the tool found that SEVEN were bad. When all the testing was done, 48 bad blocks were found all over the disk, mostly in lower numbered sectors and tracks.
The warranty on the disk is long gone, but it is apparent that this disk manufactured in the Thailand factory on June 15, 2010, should have never gotten out the door to be sold. I also realized that I should have opened the package and "certified" the disk immediately when I bought it. That takes it out of its safe dry environment, but at least I could have gotten it replaced just after I bought it. I prefer WD HDD, but I will be more cautious in the future and will switch to WD black or red label disks for future buys. I'm testing another of the blue disks and it's doing fine. The third is still sealed in its anti-static bag. So I'm definitely at the 50% mark of bad disks and may only be at 33% - that pulls my rating down to 1 egg rather than the normal of 5 for WD. I still prefer WD, but this was not a fun exercise - I have a picture of the defects found on the drive if WD is interested and they can have the drive to study, it's just a paperweight..

Had a good run

Pros: Had this HDD for over 7 years and it ran like a champ. Speeds were more than adequate and I picked it up for a cheap price.

Cons: Seems like a steep price now. After 7 years finally crashed, but that it more than its expectancy
