Drive Crashed 8/18/2010 8:32:47 AM

Pros: It was a large drive.

Cons: It crashed 3 months after warranty expired! Coincidence? I bought this when it had the 3 yr warranty. Now the product page says unavailable. The model # was WD3200JB. They just added RTL to the end and reduced the warranty to 1 year.

Overall Review: Western Digital must be punished with this review. I had to order from my Windows 98 drive running on my 12 year old Maxtor, which still works. Wake up people, you are not buying a drive any more, you are buying a yearly subscription to storage!

Is It BLUE or really SE?! 8/4/2010 11:50:02 PM

Pros: IF it's a real Caviar SE and not a BLUE it would be very rare to find. The FACT is that the new BLUE drives do not have nearly as high ratings as the SE series did. The SE series was one of the highest rated drives WD ever sold. BTW, this applies for the OEM / 3 year warranty drives, not the RTL / 1 year warranty ones. For some reason, the RTL (Retail) versions never got as high reviews... a mystery to us as it should be the same drive just packaged as Retail.

Cons: Not sure if it is really an SE Caviar and NOT a BLUE drive.

Overall Review: Does anyone know if this is actually what they show? Just thought i would point this out to those who are not aware that WD has decided to use the very same Model # for the BLUE DRIVES as they had for their Caviar SE drives which we think is just WRONG. They are completely different drives yet have the same model #?! This is causing a great amount of confusion with many companies.

Now since we didn't order any (yet) we are not sure which drive is being sent. My bet is since they are no longer manufacturing the SE series, it will be a BLUE drive. We shall confirm before ordering.

FANTASTIC DRIVE 8/3/2010 12:15:36 PM

Pros: I used this in a desktop for about 2 years, and for the last 2 years it's been running 24/7 in a server with no issue whatsoever. I've worked this thing to death (regular 100GB+ file transfers for backups and such), and it's still going after almost 4 years.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Overall Review: HDPARM in Linux consistently gives a read speed of ~80 MB/s

Bad Experience turned good 6/24/2010 11:50:02 AM

Pros: My review is more for newegg than the product. The product arrived poorly packed and was loose inside the box, which is very rare for Newegg. I RMA'd it and contacted customer service. They took care of me and left me very satisfied with their resolve. Way to go Newegg

Cons: Had to return the product. Hard drives are too fragile to be shipped that loosely.

Overall Review: I was afraid this would sour an otherwise pleasant relationship with Newegg. They took good care of me and showed me they appreciate my business. I'm not usually a complainer, but with hard drives I am particular. Thanks Newegg.

A titan 6/2/2010 4:22:51 PM

Pros: -Good speed
-3.5" drive
-quiet and cool
-Decent storage space
-Runs extremely well for the three hard years its been in service

Cons: -IDE (i perfer SATA)
-occassional HDD error messages, with quick reboot problems were solved

Overall Review: -I am amazed this Hard drive has lasted over the years, its been reformated and reloaded (and physically damaged) 100 times again and it still runs like a champ. However I am selling it to get a few extra bucks as I now have no use for it.
