    5 out of 5 eggs Works Well

    Pros: Fast

    Cons: Not free?

    Bottom Line: Reliable, I have had mine for 2.5 years and not a flaw. Worth it for that extra space for pictures and videos. Loads games fairly quickly too (i'm usually 3rd one on in 64 man servers)

    1 out of 5 eggs Junk

    Pros: None

    Cons: Worked for 2 days. I normally keep my hard drives longer than that.

    Bottom Line: HGST would have done an exchange, but they didn't offer a refund. I didn't want another piece of junk, so I declined. From here on, I will stick with WD or Seagate.

    1 out of 5 eggs This is getting expensive.

    Pros: Great specs.

    Cons: The new one that I bought died within 2 weeks of installation. I went through the RMA process, to be honest was quite painless. I paid the return postage, 14.00. In a few weeks I received a RE-MANUFACTURED drive. I bought a new one that was defective. I should have received a new one in it's place. I installed the drive and within two weeks it died. Now I have another return shipping to get another re-manufactured drive. If this one is defective I will cut my losses. I am now approaching 100.00 for this drive.

    Bottom Line: I hesitated buying this drive because I usually build with Seagate and Western Digital. I decided to purchase when I saw that this was a WD company I took a chance on it. I learned an expensive lesson.

    4 out of 5 eggs Nice little upgrade

    Pros: Installed easily; initialized without any fuss; accessing additional drive isn't slower than default (C:) drive.

    Cons: None, yet

    Bottom Line: I have run on just 80 GB for a while, I felt it was time for an upgrade. To make sure I had something compatible, I did a bit of research, and also chose to find a harddrive from the same brand and family as my current harddrive. This way I knew, for sure, my BIOS wouldn't reject it - and it didn't. I installed it easily, although I had to run out and get an additional SATA cord. I have had no problems with it yet. We'll see what a year or two brings.

    3 out of 5 eggs

    Pros: Recieved the product in one piece

    Cons: poor packageing. bubble wrapped and placed loosely in shipping box. If I sent it to the manufacturer this way they would reject it for improper packageing. Dont know how much life was removed from it due to Neweggs poor packing problem. wish they would improve this.

    5 out of 5 eggs

    Pros: Works flawlessly in a production workstation. Passed my SpinRite prequalifier test with flying colors--no bad sectors, no visible error correcting going on like a lot of Seagate drives, no issues whatsoever. Great price.

    Cons: Not the fastest drive, nor the biggest cache, but it does the job. Just don't expect anything more than average performance and you'll be happy.

    4 out of 5 eggs Fast! With Issues...

    Pros: Incredibly fast! It's been more than a year since I bought this drive and it's still fast with 400GBs stored on it. Dirt cheap too.

    Cons: Nothing major, just needs to be checked for consistency every few months.

    Bottom Line: Like I said, I'm running out of storage, so I'll be buying another soon!
