Update: It failed in May 2017 (purchase and install wabs Nov. 2015). Lost about a 1.5 TB of data. Will not format, shows 0 bytes and fails any Partition or Data rescue software attempts (Technical grade software). I filled out an RMA at WD's website and they should replace it, I will update how the new 3TB works out over time. I never ever had any problems with WD drives under 3 TB. My computer is temp. controlled to the max (so it's not a heat issue, for those that are wondering).
I'm not giving up on WD, it is still the best consumer choice at this time and 1.5 yrs beats Seagrates )sic) junk that lasted (twice in a row) under a month.
I hope that this is a 3 + plate problem and that WD is not heading down that road of dollar store outsourcing max Profit consumer be damned allure.....a direction that nearly everything else has headed.
Once installed in my iMac it has performed flawlessly and I now have faster reading and writing response times with the drive. Looking forward to another 3-4 years of use.
Note when replacing a HDD in an iMac make sure the OEM drive is from the same manufacturer as the replacement. I did need to download a small app "Macs Fan Control" in order that the system recognized the temperature sensor inside the drive. I also cleaned out the fans from almost 3-1/2 years of dust while I was inside.
The only reason I did not give a fifth star was that the wake from sleep time seems to be a little longer that the previous drive.
Pros - Economical extra storage for home use. Data speed is good, drive was not DOA and I expect to get 5+ years out of it. Time will tell!
Cons: Shipping packing was very deformed, with HDD smooshed very close to package wall. It was not damaged but a little too close for comfort. Many DOA drives are a result of damage during shipping. Drive is fairly heavy.
Has a fairly loud click sound sometimes, but has a quiet hum when reading and writing large files. I'm used to it now but would prefer this quieter.
Due to phenominal price this gets 5 stars regardless of these small issues.
I like this drive and would recommend to friends & family if asked.
