Top customer reviews
UPDATE: After a long back-and-forth I was finally sent a brand new drive which functions fine now. Upgraded from 1 to 3 stars.
Hate the update this review with an unhappy ending.... but since I was issue my RMA citing reason for fire and physical damage, Western Digital has rejected my RMA due to physical damage! When I created the RMA with their rep for FIRE you would think physical damage would be expected. Now I have multiple failed drives with only their "advanced replacements" they were happy to change me for. Thank you but no thanks! If I wanted to purchase new drives I could of done so from day 1! Customer service that was delivered was below average. Hate to see a company such as this not support their products!
Thanks for bringing this matter to our attention, as we would appreciate the opportunity to collect these drives under warranty in order to examine the root cause of this unexpected behavior. If you would please contact us directly by phone or Email below and mention this Amazon review as a point of reference, we will help exchange these drives along with provide a positive experience.

First thing to look for is to observe the packaging the drive arrives in. It is industry practice to ship one or more drives in boxes that are made to perfectly fit the drive. Inside the box, the drive should be suspended with two plastic holders. These holders suspend the drive and dampen any drops the package may experience during transit. (Bulk orders (15+) may be shipped in a single larger box with foam cut-out arrays).
Secondly, when installing the drives, make sure that your hands are clean. Give them a wash, or better yet, wear gloves. Avoid transferring finger/hand oil to the drives so that hot-spots aren't created.
Thirdly, once the drives are installed, give them a full, long format. You can run 1, 3, 5, (or even more) passes on the disks. This ensures that every single sector of the drives gets written to. Once the format is complete, look up the SMART data, and check the values for anything alarming. If a drive suffered damage in shipping, now is when it may be noticeable. Compare the values to your other drives. Start-up times, head parks and so fourth may vary slightly so there's nothing to be worried about a little deviation there, but pay attention to failed reads, reallocated sectors, and RUEs.
Granted, all of this advice should be taken with a grain of salt since SMART values are not the silver bullet to predict drive failure, but this testing should be a good indicator on whether or not a drive is ready for production use.
Above all else, remember that backups are your friend.
First, the website for RMA was terribly broken. I eventually gave up trying to RMA online and moved on to phone support.
Over the phone, Western Digital refused to RMA the drive despite it being purchased directly from Amazon. They have the drive misidentified as being sold as part of a piece of hardware (like a NAS bundle, I guess). This doesn't make a lot of sense anyway since WD still manufactured the drive, but regardless it was incorrect. I eventually got escalated and was able to RMA, but this was after quite a fight.
I am now waiting on a return drive, but clearly Western Digital's warranty is all about advertising upfront, and rejecting when the time comes. I will not be purchasing any more hard drives from Western Digital.
I just purchased a second drive and did some testing on it while blank and uploaded the results under customer images to the right.
