9 years old!

Pros: Arrived quickly. Too bad they're old and dead.

Cons: Although they were 'new' (never been used, still in original packaging) these hard drives were manufactured in 2010!! Almost 9 years ago! And at least 1 of the 4 that I bought was completely dead, right out of the package. Tried it in 2 different machines.

Overall Review: The seller listed on the website was 3C Expert, but the slip of paper in the box said they were bought from and shipped by GoHardDrive. This should make the return process INTERESTING.

Hi Anonymous,

We regret hearing about your experience with the WD RE3 Internal Hard Drive and appreciate your time for providing the feedback. Best practice is to run diagnostics with Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows when a drive does not perform as expected or is behaving abnormally. For more information please check the mentioned below link:

Windows or macOS cannot find my drive

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.

Lasted Only 3 months!

Pros: Fast

Cons: Bought in October 2016, died in January 2017. The hard drive was very loud too. Since this is a RE drive, I taught it would be more reliable, but it is not. Also it is a very old model, mine was dated 2010. I would consider a newer WD RE model or a WD GOLD for reliability.

Hi Anonymous,

Thanks for the time providing feedback; it's always appreciated receiving input from our customers. Current drive technology dictates that some noise will occur during normal drive operation. The type and volume of noise is dependent on whether the is drive performing a read/write operation or idle with the heads parked. The environment where the drive is functioning may also influence noise. For example, loose drive mounts, fan noise from case ventilation or the power supply, even where the enclosure is placed or mounted may produce or enhance the noise heard. It is important to recognize which noises indicate trouble or normal drive operation. We have placed some links below for more information:

We would like to follow-up with you to help discover the root of your hard drives' abnormal behavior to provide a positive resolution to your experience"

All About Expectations

Pros: Hard drives are "new old" stock offered at a good price. Shipped in generic single-drive hard disk box, wrapped in sealed anti-static bag. In spite of their age (2010), they fired up right away. SMARTCTL confirmed these are unused drives, with no power-on hours, startup cycles, anything...

Cons: I wouldn't mind paying a little extra for faster shipping, but it wasn't offered at checkout. It took about a week and a half from the order to delivery.

Overall Review: For those that don't know, EOL (the initials this vendor uses) typically means "End Of Life" in an electronics context. That means the equipment being sold as new is probably "new old" stock -- stuff that's been sitting for years unused, for example. There's nothing wrong with this; just ask anyone who's bought a vacuum tube in the last decade. The drives I just bought may well last years yet. Works for me.

Great drive for things you don't want to use an SSD for

Pros: -Great for doing lots of writes/deletes that you don't wanna do on a SSD
-Basic normal rpm speed and cache size

Cons: -Not a true con, but the day after I got this in the mail and got it working, I saw a 3tb with same cache+rpm for less... bad purchasing timing on my end. Didn't want to return it.

Overall Review: Out of the 10 HDD's and 4 externals I've owned over the past 15 years, 9 HDDs have been WD and 3 external HDD's have been WD mypassports(500gb/1tb/3tb). Only one of the HDD's was doa.
The other HDD and external HDD were Seagate products and failed me within 3 months for the HDD(the shortest time), and the external's power plug/parts failed within a year. Although I took the hdd out the external enclosure it worked for only long enough for me to copy the data off and shortly died within a few weeks.

tldr- WD seems to be the most reliable for hard drives in my experiences.
