The drives they shipped me were not the advertised drive. They are Dell branded with NO WARRANTY from either Dell or Western Digital. I spent considerable time trying to register these drives with both Dell and Western Digital and the drives were rejected as NOT IN WARRANTY by both companies. Of course the seller knew this but chose to falsely advertise them as Western Digital re3 drives with 5 year warranty even using stock advertising for the Western Digital drive.

We all know drives fail. I would never have paid them my money if they had been truthful in the ad. My data is valuable and I need the good warranty.

When I complained, Storite offered me a short "sellers warranty" and $10 off each drive

Oh Sure! They are going to honor it??? Will they even be in business when the drive fails?

I am still waiting for a reply to my latest inquiry to Storite.

I bought 5 units of the 1T RE3 drive for a RAID-5 set. Works great. Less heat than the black drives it replaced. The RE3 is better suited to RAID applications than standard drives which can drop off the raid set unexpectedly.

Size Name: 750 GB Verified Purchase
So, I bought 3 of these recently for a RAID-0 in my Tyan S2915-E MoBo, and I would constantly keep getting errors in Nvidia Mediashied saying that the array was going to fail soon. Long story short, the problem was from both ends, the NVidia driver on XP X64 and one of the disks being bad. one think I'll tell right now is that You absolutely must run the WD test utility to ensure the health of the drives as soon as you recieve them to avoid any confusion. There was a point when I thought my Mobo was bad. Amazon was super cool for sending me a replacement without even waiting for me to send in my faulty drive unit. Performace is definitely great as I am running all three as a 3-way striped RAID-0 Array. To rate these drives as a single drive is useless, for that you have the black edition drives anyway. the RE3 is for RAID and I think rating their RAID performance should be the only performance review.

The drive arrived quickly. In a box that could have used about 40% MORE packing material. The drive was clunking around in the box.... I kinda thought the worst. Good news was that it worked. After downloading the WD Acronis program I was able to clone the existing 1TB Samsung drive (it has issues).
The only question remaining is that of warranty. I realize that for <$60 I don't expect the world but the W/D website states this drive has a five year warranty. That's the reason for the purchase. The production date on the drive is 20 JUNE 2009! It looks like the ad should have said new old stock!! My guess is that a production date that was FOUR YEARS AGO would have to qualify as NOS! I have yet to visit the W/D website to see what needs to be done for warranty registration, if any.
The PC is running and that is what matters. The NOS thing just sticks in my crawl.

I just checked the W/D website with the serial number of the drive. W/D states the drive is in warranty till August of 2014 !!!!!

AMAZON needs to update the ad to reflect the correct warranty period!!!!!!!

This 1 TB hard drive performs like all other Western Digital hard drives that I've purchased in the past: Excellent! The 32MB of embedded buffer, along with it's capacity, speed, and reliability -- clearly made it a valuable upgrade. This hard drive also spins very quietly.

I got this drive quickly, and it took a format OK. I tried to register it with WD and it does not have *any* warranty. The vendor here states that this drive has a 5-year warranty. Not so.

Size Name: 1 TB Verified Purchase
I have two of these in a RAID 1 configuration and when one failed, I had no difficulty whatsoever with getting a replacement from westerndigital.

I have seen some comments about why RE class. From the WD website:

Upgrading from Blue to Black gets you
Dual processor, dual actuator, bigger cache, StableTrac and 5 Year Ltd Warranty

In addition to the above, upgrading from Black to RE gets you
RAFF (for high vibration environments), IntelliSeek, Multi-axis shock sensor, RAID-specific time-limited error recovery (TLER), Third generation dynamic fly height for improved reliability, and a stated MTBF of 1.2 million hours at 100% duty cycle (MTBF is never mentioned for the "desktop" line)

Over the past 20+ years I have had far too many hard drives fail and decided that a little extra money was worth the lowered probability of having to deal with it.

Dell labeled drives with NO WARRANTY! False advertising! They may have had 5 years when they were originally OEM, but they are obviously beyond the 5 years.
--------------
Hello buyer. I apologize for the inconvenience. We are a third party vendor and we receive large shipments from manufacturers and some of the drives we receive are new and some are re-certified. We must have mistakenly sent you a re-certified drive. These drives are zero-hour drives and carry a 6-month manufacturer warranty and a 2-year warranty with Storite.

If you would like to keep the drive, I can issue you a 30% discount on your entire order. Otherwise, you can return it for a full refund.

Let me know how you would like me to proceed.

Thanks,
Kevin @ Storite

Hello buyer. The 6-month manufacturer warranty is automatic with your serial number and all you need to provide me with for the 2-year warranty with us is the order number which starts with 115.

The discount has been applied.

Thanks,
Kevin @ Storite
