Great drives

Pros: Great dependability.
Relatively fast and low power.

Cons: Not an SSD

Other Thoughts: Wanted to write up a review. I purchased 4 of these for a HP server that runs 24/7 3 years ago. They have run non-stop and I have had not have not had any problem with them. They are not especially fast, but I am using them for bulk storage.

I am impressed with their reliability thus far.

Trusty old thing

Pros: 40,000 Power On Hours according to a smart test today, not a single reallocated sector or hiccup.

Cons: Can't justify replacing it with an SSD.

Going strong...

Pros: Had to write this up: purchased in 2009 and still going strong today as a hefty secondary storage with OS loaded on SSD.

Cons: Has worked each and every boot, no issues whatsoever in four years of regular use.

RockSolid performance14months and going

Pros: Bought this model drive November 07. Fired right up formatted with no problem and has been a solid silent performer for 14months and growing. I have 4 other PCs with smaller WD 60g and WD 120g versions that are at least 8 years old and to this day run flawlessly. WD 4 Life. My experiences have been nothing but positive with WD. Currently bought a WD1001FALS 1tb drive that is loud by comparison but how can I resist for $119.00 after such a great experience with this last drive. This drive is worth every penny (especially since it was 149.00 when I bought mine). Those with bad experiences most likely received a drive that was damaged in transit or some other fluke because this drive is a Solid silent dependable performer. You WILL NOT BE SORRY.

Cons: None

66% failure rate

Pros: Pros are purely theoretical since I never saw the drives really do anything.

Cons: 2 of 3 drives died within a week. Reliability seems to be terrible, but hard to say if the problem is limited to these drives since so many get bad reviews these days for this reason

Other Thoughts: Hard drive quality control seems to be nonexistent these days. Apparently to save costs, manufacturers expect end users to do all the final production testing - so make sure you do. Install them, close case, format and run 24/7 for several days before trusting them with your data! I installed a 3 disk raid5 and lost everything on the raid within a week of installation of these drives. First drive failed with seek error (click of death) on first day, a week later second drive became inaccessible (no clicks, just dead). Sent back, hoping I can have more faith in another model drive.

Bought two, one died.

Pros: Quiet, speedy, inexpensive for the size.

Cons: Bought 2 at same time. one worked great, other died after about a month. Second drive was pretty inconsistant on when it wanted to work. Refused to be formatted, wouldn't be recognized by OS (Bios saw it correctly), caused Raid to lock up on raid detection, a whole host of problems. Unfortunately, it was outside of the Newegg replacement period, so it had to be sent back to WD. Thankfully WD has a great warranty. Returned with zero hassle, and relatively quick turnaround time to get a new product shipped out (5 days).

Other Thoughts: Would be giving this product 5 stars if it hadn't been for the dead drive. If WD's warranty service hadn't been as stellar as it was, would have given three stars.
