Failed after a month and a half.

Pros: Lots of storage at a reasonable price.

Cons: Failed after a month and a half taking my xbox downloads with it, oof lol.

Overall Review: Western Digital has never failed me until now. Extremely disappointing. This kind of unreliability in their hardware is as bad as C-Gate.

Manufacturer Response:
Hi Anonymous,

We are sorry to hear that the WD Blue PC Hard Drive is not working on your computer and thank you for bringing this concern to our attention. If the drive is not detected on your computer after connecting it on the SATA port then it could be caused due to various causes, it includes bad SATA port or SATA cable may have gone bad. We suggest you connect the drive on a different SATA port or using a different SATA cable to isolate the issue.

If the drive still does not detect on the computer then please refer to the link provided below for solutions to troubleshoot the issue.

"Windows or macOS Cannot Find My Drive":
https://support-en.wd.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/12455

The best practice is to run Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows when a drive is behaving abnormally. You can refer to the below mentioned link and follow the instructions to test the device using Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows.

"Testing a drive for problems using Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows":
https://support-en.wd.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/6226

If the test is inconclusive then you can replace the drive by creating a replacement with Western Digital. To know the steps to create an RMA, you can refer to the link mentioned below.

"How to Get an RMA to Replace a Defective Product, Obtain a Power Supply, or USB Cable for a WD Product":

Good drive but 256mb cache probably not worth higher price

Pros: Large Drive
Quiet
Good speed for a 5400 RPM drive

Cons: 256mb cache vs 64mb not that useful in a large file storage usage scenario

Overall Review: Bought this because the 64mb version was out of stock and there was a $15 off coupon for this model, bringing the price rather close to. I was hesitant because I could not find reviews of this specific model anywhere but still did it based on positive past experiences with various WD drives.

The drive runs great, it's quiet, doesn't get hot, has space and performs well enough. However, in benchmarking it and comparing it to my 2017 4TB WD Blue it really doesn't deliver any great performance increase except in Random Write tests where it looks like the increased amount of cache helps it. When is this useful? Probably only if you use this as a system disk (don't! Get an SSD, it's not 2005!) or somehow have a use case with lots of small and/or simultaneous operations.

In my case I use it primarily to store files that I don't need everyday (movies/photos etc) and only write to it once. There's not really going to be a significant speed boost there compared to a 64mb cache model (the WD60EZRZ).

So: great drive, but if you need it for the same reasons I do: just buy the 64mb model and save yourself some money. I would only buy this model if you can get a good deal, the 64mb drive is not available or you just like having more expensive stuff with bigger numbers :)
