Good product, but old stock

Pros: WD Black are good drives.

Cons: I just bought four of these, and the dates of manufacture were all in 2011 and 2012, so they sat on a shelf for several years. This particular model is apparently no longer in production. I checked with WD to see if the warranty was about to expire and found they are OEM drives, with no manufacturer warranty. So the warranty is presumably from the distributor. The info on the Newegg page is ambiguous: in one place it says 5-year warranty; in another it says 3-year warranty.

Overall Review: I'd recommend finding a product in current production with a clear warranty.

Reasonable reliability

Pros: Drive lasted 28480 hours (3.25yrs) before failing on read media error. 301K Load Cycles.

I have two other drives still running, both with 40873 Hours and 463K Cycles each..

Used RAID1 in Fujitsu TX140S1 with LSI2108 Controller, 512MB Cache & BBU.

Cons: Warranty expired 3 months before I got around to removing it from the server a year or so after it failed as it was in CoLo.

Overall Review: Recommend.

WD 5000bpkt

Pros: I only buy WD Black drives now because of the 5 year Warranty. They usually last me 7 years. In heavy use other Manufacture's drives seem to die the day after the warranty is up. I bought this drive in July 2012. I've only used it in a USB Dock for monthly incremental Backups. I finally cloned it from my 259Gb Samsung, and placed it in my laptop. For 2 days it was fantastic, and then it completely died.

Cons: For 2 days it was fantastic, and then it completely died. I called today and they will be sending me a replacement.

Overall Review: I just ordered two 3T WD desktop drives (model 3003FZEX), to use as backup for my documents and video storage.

Wonderful drive

Pros: Bought this to stick in my ASUS laptap to replace the old 5400 to speed things up a bit, its been in this laptop for about a year and a half now and have no complaints. I have been loyal to Western Digital drives for years and have only had one dud sent to me by newegg, which they replaced promptly. Can't go wrong with this drive.

Cons: None
