WD 1TB Desktop SATA hard drive - OEM- Green review
on 31 March 2017
Despite only being used to back up 100GB worth of photos, this drive failed after less than 4 years of very light use.
I first noticed a problem when trying to store some photos on the drive, in that the access speed was extremely slow. I carried out a test on the drive using the diagnostics on my PC, which came back as being O.K. but the drive was hundreds of times slower than an identical drive, which is also used to back up the same data. I removed the drive and had it tested at a local PC repair shop, who informed me that it was unusable.
I have since replaced it.
What is the point of having these drives to back up your data if they cannot be relied upon to do so?.
