J'ai commandé ce disque dur il y a plus d'un moi et demi et je viens de recevoir hiers un couriel qui me dit de payé l'article en question, chose que j'ai fait il y a un mois et demi. Le service à la clientelle est une vrai blague, il appelle a la maison pour me dire qu'ils sont trop occupé et me racroche au nez. Le service par couriel ne répond tout simplement pas. Cette compagnie est l'une des moins bien organisé que j'ai jamais eu a faire affaire.
For those of you who are wondering I used Ashampoo HDD control application to determine the health of my drives.

I bought it as a kit expecting a disk, manual, and any needed parts. What I received was a pamphlet with six lines explaining the obvious for installation and four screws. For software you are directed to go to their web site. So don't pay the extra $30 for the kit; buy the barebones package.
Also I could not get my win7 to recognize the WD drive used as second non-OS drive. The BIOS did recognize and enabled it. I had done a direct replacement with the Seagate and assumed nothing in the BIOS needed to be changed. I called WD support and the level 1 tech could not determine what was wrong so he passed me to level 2 and after a long period of trouble shooting he said to call HP for support. However after doing a bit more investigating( on lots of forums) I discovered that the RAID Management on the BIOS must be set to AHCI instead of RAID(Choices are AHCI, RAID, and IDE). (Note this is only if you are using any two hard drives on the same controller which is the way HP has this computer set up.) Not sure why the original Seagate drive worked with the 'RAID' setting.
I have always been a Western Digital fan. Their drives have always held up well and typically the only time I replace them is when the size of the current drive is no longer sufficient for my needs. Well, that finally happened with one of my older 1TB drives. It was on my desktop/server and was acting as my "movie" drive for all my ripped dvds and blurays. These would then be streamed to my htpc downstairs. Well, the 1TB wasn't cutting it as bluray rips are substantially bigger than dvd rips, and the drive was about full. At the time I bought this, the 4TB had just come out and the prices were still much higher than I wanted to spend (I've since bought 2x4TB drives to replace other drives).
Learning the GPT partitioning tools in linux was a bit interesting, but still easy. I partitioned the drive, formatted it as ext4 and then copied all the old movies onto the new drive. Since then, the drive has been working great. There isn't much more that can be said for it.
I highly recommend this for storage drives, but if you're looking for performance, check out the Black series.
Very quiet drive! Liked it so much I purchased another for use as an external drive. Both drives working flawless and no issues transferring massive amounts of data to both drives.
My data is currently utilizing over 50% of the drive space on both drives and have no issues to speak of.
One drive is housed in a Vantec NexStar external enclosure and works flawless on all my systems via USB. No data errors, speed issues or complaints at this time.
Got a 2TB Seagate 2 weeks ago because of the first two died wd drives, had to find storage to recover the files. Got this drive because it's the only one I can afford at the moment. Hope it will last me another few years, they just don't make things like they used to.
Funny thing is that I used to write to Seagate years ago about different serials on drive and on box. so it doesn't surprise me that WD plays the same game today. No point to get warranty for hdd, since all the data is gone, unless they give you free service for the data recovery; hdd gonna kept on dying, and nothing you can do about it.
I loved WD, because when all my Maxtor hdd crashed one by one last time, only the wd continued to work, I guess now it's WD's turn.
