WD WD Green WDBAAY0015HNC-NRSN 1.5TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

1 out of 5 eggs WDAAY0015HNC-NRSN a rebranded model #? 12/28/2010

This review is from: WD WD Green WDBAAY0015HNC-NRSN 1.5TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Retail kit

Pros: Lots of storage space.

Cons: What you see may not be what you get. The model # on the outside of the box may not be the model of the drive inside the box. Both drives I purchased had a white sticker on the bottom of the box identifying the drive as a WDAAY0015HNC-NRSN model with a serial number that matched the number printed on the physical disk sticker. The Model #'s on each of the 2 disks were completely different from each other and did not match the model number found on the box sticker.

Other Thoughts: Bought 2 retail boxes labeled as Model #WDAAY0015HNC-NRSN. The serial #'s on the outside of both retail boxes matches the serial # on the physical hard drives inside (the boxes did not show signs of tampering and appeared to be never opened/ still originally sealed). The Model number on one of the physical hard drives is the WD15EADS-00P8B0 (32MB cache). The Model number on the other physical hard drive is the WD15EARS-22Z5B1 (64MB cache). After searching the alternate model # ending in '00P8B0', I discovered many reports of terrible performance, unhappy reviews, and buyer complaints. A search of the model # ending in '22Z5B1' returned only issues with RAID operation. Outside of this I have not opened the anti-static bags and am considering returning both drives.
