Excellent drive

Pros: Got this at a steal of a price ($80)!
Runs just as quiet as any other drives I've used and has been incredibly reliable.

Cons: none yet

Overall Review: I bought this on a whim to test out its functionality in a gaming rig and I'm upset I didn't grab a few more for that rig and my workstation.

Solid drive, no issues in 8 months

Pros: -Takes maybe 6 seconds to spin up when it's been idle, great read/write speed (~100mb/s extracting a giant zip archive from a separate SSD)
-Makes the dying cow noise when your PC shuts off which I find amusing

Cons: -Not extremely loud as some people say, however if you're doing hardcore reading/writing you can't ignore it. But aside from specifically operating on large/many files your PC is generally not making the drive work 24/7 so it'll be tiny muffled ticks that almost blend in with your case fans. I personally am not bothered at all by any of the sound this drive makes.

Overall Review: My case is on a wood base which rests on a carpet, I imagine that absorbs/muffles a lot of the vibration and ticking. If your case was resting on a non-carpeted floor or desk, hardcore file operations would probably be louder.

Buy From Amaz-on

Pros: none

Cons: 20 days and no package no tracking. I should have purchased from Amaz-on (cheaper and 2 day shipping)
Neweggs customer support phone is so busy I wonder if everyone else is having the same problem. Message states 24 minute wait time. REALLY!

Overall Review: This is most likely my LAST newegg purchase!

5/ 5
Fast and reliable

Pros: -Fast transfer speeds of <200MB/sec
-Quiet, cant be heard outside case, no seek noises at all
-Has 2000+ hours on it already and no issues or problems so far

Cons: -Pricey, but this is presumably WD's best, so it should have the specs to match and it does

Overall Review: I might get another from the Gold lineup - NOT failing two and a half years later is the real goal with hard drives vs SSDs.

Poor service and no follow through. WD shows these drives without warranty

Pros: price
Received return shipping label

Cons: No WD warranty per WD
No follow through when RMA requested the first time
Lost RMA and it was on their label
said they would refund - never happened
Drives returned on their label

Out the money and the drives now. NEVER BUY FROM THEM

Quite A Fast Drive. Even Better Then A WD Black Hard Drive!

Pros: -Quiet When In Use
-Just As Fast If Not Faster Then A WD Black HDD (167 MB/Sec Disk Transfer For A WD Gold Drive According To Crystal Disk Mark A WD Black Only Gets 158 MB/Sec Transfer Speed On The Same Computer)
-More Reliable Then The Recent Model WD Black HDD And A Lot More Reliable Then A S**Ga** HDD.

Cons: -Is Noisy At Spin Down When Shutting The Computer Down However As This Only Happens When Shutting Down The Computer I Am Not Going To Take An Egg Off For That As The Drive Is Really Quiet At Idle And When In Use.
(Some People Have Got Noisy WD Gold Drives So Caveat Emptor YMMV, However The One I Had Gotten Seems To Be Fine)

Overall Review: -I Would Recommend This To Others However A Word Of Caution, This Is An OEM Drive If You Get Anything Under The 4TB Model. (So No Screws, SATA Cable Or Software Of Any Kind When You Buy The Drive) This Is However Not The Case If You Buy The 4TB Model Or Higher In Capacity Hard Drive.

-And Caveat Emptor As You May Get A Noisy Drive While In Use So YMMV!

Manufacturer Response:
Hi Anonymous,

"We regret that the initial installation of your WD Gold drive did not function as expected.

As a troubleshooting step, please test the drive on Windows using our Data Lifeguard Diagnostics program. If it passes the test we recommend testing another drive bay or SATA port on your system.

""Testing a drive for problems using Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows"":
https://support.wdc.com/knowledgebase/answer.aspx?ID=940

If the test is unfortunately inconclusive and you just purchased the drive then you should be able to return it to the place of purchase. However, if you are past their return policy, you can create an RMA through WD and replace the drive under warranty if necessary.

""How to get an RMA to replace a defective product, or obtain a power supply or USB cable for a WD product"": https://support.wdc.com/knowledgebase/answer.aspx?ID=8

We would like to follow-up with you to help discover the root of your hard drive’s abnormal behavior, or help replace it for you if needed in order to provide a positive resolution to your experience"
