When Did Newegg Turn into Dell? 2/23/2018 4:34:34 PM

Pros: None - Negative 100 stars

Cons: Wow! Three weeks for a drive out of China that has three different drive sizes on three different parts of the drive. Didn't even bother to open. Sorry, Xi, you'll hafta keep getting your info off the OPM or Ivanka's phone, whichever. Not an order from Newegg, personally or professionally, that didn't end up as scrapings on the floor. Quoth the Raven, I shop here no more!

Overall Review: I would recommend this product to people who waste their time online posting pointless, silly cr*p which is almost all of you. Quick, get some Bitcoin before it goes up again! And tie your shoes at the top of the stairway...um, because....

WD Scorpio Black 500GB 1/3/2013 1:05:54 PM

Pros: 5 year guarantee, slightly faster than my old Hitachi 5400 rpm drive but not very faster in everyday use, not noisy how I expected it to be and how people say it is, no vibrations at all.

Cons: In idle a low noise is present which is not constant but oscillates from time to time. In use there isn't much difference, noise is there but the oscillating dissapears.

Overall Review: The hitachi hdd I had in my Lenovo T500 was to small so I replaced it. I took this model over the wd blue just because of the guarantee. I was sceptical about the noise (the hitachi is a very quiet hdd) but the difference isnt very big. The T500 uses rubber pads to fix the drive, so it certainly helps to reduce vibrations. Speed advantage: not really in everyday use. More noise: not really, only of you're a prissy.

Dead in Two Years 11/14/2012 4:23:52 PM

Pros: 5 year warranty, high performance (at the time of purchase)

Cons: Died without warning. >(

Overall Review: This is my second WD Scorpio Black drive to fail within the warranty period. WD is pretty good about their RMAs, but it'd be better if it would just last a few years without flaking out. One more year and I would have replaced the entire computer anyway...

Purchased 3 in Jan 2011, all failed 10/12/2012 11:01:05 AM

Pros: high performance, inexpensive, 5 year warranty

Cons: failure prone

Overall Review: I don't know if I received a defective batch or what, but every single drive I purchased eventually failed, most recently yesterday. The others failed after 7 months and 14 months. They were RMA'd and so far none of those have failed.

I'd give these drives one egg, but the warranty is 5 years and the advanced RMA is easy. Just backup your data.
