Long time WD user, long enough that I know when something stinks.... partly due to the fact I usually buy directly from WD and know what the product looks like.
I got this (1TB RED) in and the first thing I look at is the date, yes, all drives have a built on date. Received this drive on 3/28/19, but drive has a 13 Oct 2014 date on it.... first warring sign.
Still not 100% against the drive, who knows... could be new- old stock. Quick look at the spindle motor (pictured side by side with a WD black purchased direct from WD) shows my next worry.... refurbished?
Third strike was a quick warranty check on WD's web site (Not sure if amazon allows links here, so ask and I'll link you too it). WD shows this as an OEM product without warranty from them.
Now, given the OEM status, build date and poor "glue" job on the motor connectors, I've got a pretty good picture of what I received.
Now, I've use WD's products for years, what's going on with THIS drive, well.... I'll let you draw your own conclusions from the facts I've given.
Sixteen months later one of the drives started failing by showing multiple I/O errors and bad sectors. Well, I thought, this happens, the WD website shows that my drive is still covered for another couple of years, I will just get a replacement. I contacted WD customer support hoping to get a new drive under warranty. Nope. They requested my Amazon invoice and after looking at it replied by saying that since I got this drive from a third party seller, it should be covered by seller's warranty and they are denying manufacturers coverage. Hardware does fail and there is nothing unusual about it, but denying warranty for such a reason is simply ridiculous.
Credits to Amazon's spectacular customer service - they helped me to resolve this issue quickly and to my complete satisfaction. Needless to say that I will not be buying WD drives ever again.
I've installed a couple dozen of these drives for NAS and other uses. I've come to the conclusion that I won't be buying any more going forward. The first issue is the number of failures. I expected 1 or 2 failures, but I've had 5. It's actually higher than any other product I've owned, even the notorious 1.5TB Seagate from back in the day. The next issue is the price. I don't feel like I'm getting anything special for my money. Finally, I tried to use the web site to do an advanced RMA and it wouldn't let me and I had to call in to support. I created a ticket for the issue from within my account logged in to the support site and the first question back was what is my shipping and billing address. Are you seriously not able to access my account information and I have to send it over e-mail?? You also can't see the communications back and forth in the support portal. It just has my original request.
So WD has burned the bridge here on the Red drives. I'll just do what the big guys do and buy the cheapest drive I can get and build my redundancy into the system. Back to yanking Seagates out of enclosures....
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.
Almost hit 90 days.
needless to say, it's crappy.
Update: Sent WD email since they have warranty. Been 5 days of Radio silence.
Update. WD finally responded. Boilerplate “haha. Now we can give you refurbished one back and too bad about your data. Serves you right for buying from us. Did we mention haha?”
Anyway. My mistake hopefully prevents you from making the same.

Shingled magnetic recording (SMR) is being used by WD on newer disks. It is measurably awful when used with a NAS. The WD40EFRX (the item I posted this review to) is a CMR (conventional magnetic recording) disk and is very good, I have one in my NAS already. WD now have an SMR 4TB drive, the WD40EFAX (cheaper for them?). So: RX = CMR = Good. AX = SMR = Bad.
I ordered the 'RX (this item). The disk came in bubble-wrap which clearly showed 'RX ... but the disk inside was an AX. See photo. Perhaps just a one-off mistake?
I am returning the 'AX and asking for an exact replacement. Let's see what I get this time.
Same problem with the replacement; the item was mislabeled on the bubble-wrap as an 'RX (which is what I want) but the item inside the bubble-wrap was an 'AX (which I don't want). I suspect the same would happen if I tried yet again. I suggest Amazon check the labeling for all remaining stock of this item.
Warum sollte es mir aber auch anders ergehen:
- unzureichende Verpackung in Luftpolsterkuverts in einem nicht mit auf den empfindlichen Inhalt hinweisenden Karton
- erste Platte hatte das bekannte Klacken - tot
- die zweite Platte hatte beim Überprüfen des Garantieablaufdatums doch noch sieben! Monate übrig; Fertigungsdatum war laut Aufkleber der 11.12.2017 - wie geht das zusammen?
Ware geht zurück.
médiocre. Effectivement j'ai reçu le disque dur dans une boite en carton complètement libre de mouvements, je suis en train de le tester secteur par secteur et même si ça me prend 15 heures, je ne peut pas risquer d'y balancer toutes mes données en risquant de les perdre.
AMAZON devrait vérifier la qualité de ses vendeurs externes, afin de proposer une qualité optimum, voila pourquoi 1 étoile !
Lors de ma commande sur le site Amazon, j'ai relevé dans la spécification que cet article était garanti FABRICANT pendant 3 ANS. En tout état de cause, il n'était pas indiqué une quelconque restriction de garantie du fait ci-dessus.
Il faudrait d'ailleurs se poser la question sur le droit de distribution de ces articles directement à des consommateurs !!!
VOUS VOUDREZ BIEN ME CONFIRMER L'ETENDUE DE LA GARANTIE DE CE PRODUIT, QUI POUR MOI NE PEUT ÊTRE INFERIEUR A 3 ANS.
