Thankfully the Drive was New inside an anti-static bag and worked without any hassle. I can't say the same about the SSD this replaced, SSD's are a hassle to set up and have issues with Motherboards that are just a few years old. SSD's are still too unreliable unfortunately.

I suspect Amazon has a problem with disgruntled buyers skewing review results. I don't doubt some drives do fail, but it's easy to imagine that these get reported with a much higher frequency than those that don't.
In any event, I resisted spending more money for a "more reliable", "higher performance", "higher capacity" drive. The WD Blue 250 GB has been a delight. It's vastly quieter than my old Ultra320 Scsi 1500 rpm drive, and just as fast. As for size, 250 GB is plenty big for me since I backup to another drive and burn important stuff to disk as well.
