Western Digital Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: * Good warranty!
* Speedy!

Cons: * 2 DOA
* 1 Failure within 3 months

Other Thoughts: I purchased three of these Nov 9, 2012. One went into a machine for my brother, one into a machine for my father, and one went into my RAID 5. Imagine the face I had to save when the two going into my family's machines were Dead On Arrival. Newegg was awesome enough to replace those drives (plus cost of shipping the bad drives to them). One family member accepted the replacement while the other decided to go with a different brand. So now I had a spare (replacement).

The one which went into my RAID 5 failed last week. I put the spare into it. Unfortunately I don't have high hopes.

I do realize the drives aren't "designed" for RAID-level use. However, until Caviar Red warranty gets bumped up or RE4 price comes down, this is what I decided to use at the time.

I will still go with warranty on this bad drive. Of course, through the manufacturer because it has been more than 30 days since purchase.

5 out of 5 eggs Your Windows 7 Upgrade is Inside 10/22/2009

This review is from: Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 64-bit for System Builders w/ Tech Guarantee

Pros: - You get Vista Ultimate AND get (upgraded to) Windows 7 Ultimate for a good price

Cons: - Windows Vista... eugh.
- Upgrading to Windows 7 isn't totally straightforward if you only purchased this to upgrade to Windows 7

Other Thoughts: Everywhere indicates that you need to go to Microsoft's main site to get a Windows 7 retail upgrade. However, upon entering the product key, Microsoft stated that I was ineligible for a free upgrade to Windows 7.

However, upon actually opening the jewel case for this product, there was a label on the inside which indicated that I needed to go to a different website and enter in a different key. Hope this helps for anyone else.
