2 out of 5 eggs It worked great for two years, then it failed 06/03/2016

This review is from: WD Black 3TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD3003FZEX

Pros: While it worked it was fast

Cons: It failed after 604 days of light use in a perfect environment.

Other Thoughts: I have had good luck with other WD Black drives, I have had two of the WD3003FZEX drives fail after a period of use.
I gave the drive two stars since it worked for 2 years. I expect 4 years of service, 5 is a bonus.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very fast for a rotating drive, high throughput and fast seeks.
Error recovery supposedly can be disabled, so it should work in RAID arrays. I'll try soon enough.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I have had very good luck with Hitachi drives, I used to have good luck with Seagate, but I have replaced so many of them in the last couple years that I will not be using them any longer. WD Black and enterprise drives are great, but too expensive. I hope these work as well as the Hitachi drives of the last 10 years.

Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This one worked for 349 days!

Cons: Then it died

Other Thoughts: Luckily we have a reasonably current backup. No more seagate consumer level drives for important customer PCs. I used to be a Seagate fan, but I have been RMAing these things for about a year now, and I am scared to use the replacements.
