30 reviews between Apr 10, 2023 and May 18, 2023.

This collection of 30 reviews covers Western Digital's hard drives, including their 8TB WD Blue PC Internal Hard Drive HDD. Some reviewers liked the cost-to-byte ratio and praised the data transfer rate, while others pointed out issues such as bad customer service and a lack of durability. Complaints about the noise level, fragility, and shingled magnetic recording also emerged. However, several reviewers had positive experiences with WD drives in general and found this hard drive to be effective in serving as a secondary drive or for storage purposes.

  • Buy a seagate or a hitachi, or really anything else

    Ive got seagates and hitachis from the early 2010s that are still kicking and working just fine
    WDs have all failed within 5 years or less.
    They are without doubt the WORST of the big name hard drive manufacturers.

  • Was exceptionally packaged.

    Worked as it should. Package was triple wrapped, including bubble wrap. Was impressed with care taken to ensure it arrived in one piece. Even bought another for a backup drive.

  • Bewarn: item is non-returnable

    Attempted to return and meet with this statement: This item is non-returnable, but you may contact Customer Service to request a refund or replacement.

    Be advised this drive is uses Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) that is being disguised as Advanced Format Drives (AFDs); this format makes it inferior compared to Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR). Very deceptive WD without warning the customers.

  • Noisy drive

    Loud hard drive, sounds like a constant airplane propeller in motion. Prior drive is same model and size. Prior to it failing was very quiet barley audible. New one is loud, loud, loud. Maybe just bad luck on this one.

  • Excellent HDD

    Excellent product that I use as a secondary drive. Love the capacity and how quietly it operates. Does exactly what I needed for. Have always had dependable results with WD HDD and I anticipate the same with this one.
