Don't Play Russian Roulette With These Drives 06/13/2013
3 of my drives came and are working... so far. I wrote a previous review stating that they were excellent. Now I'm not sure how long they will last.
4th drive came DOA. NewEgg/WD still have not solved whatever the problem is with these drives. So many owners getting bad drives. Now both NewEgg and WD want me to pay to get the working drive I paid for in the first place.
Stay away from these drives, just don't even chance it. I want to get rid of my other ones now because I can't trust them.
Goodbye Western Digital, you have lost my trust.
Just don't. Look at other drives with better owner reviews.
