"May have been good at one time, not anymore"1.5 starson by Robert Drake
Pros: Quiet drive, none quieter. Appears rather fast despite the awful 19ms access rate.
Cons: Access time on my drive is 19ms, which is slower than any drive I've owned in five years. WD customer support is non-existent.
Summary: Was very impressed with the drive, especially that I couldn't hear it above my computer fans, until I started running tests on it. HD Tune and HD Tach report the access time as 19ms. The common access time on this drive is 13ms. Asked around and found four other people who've recently bought this drive have the same poor access time. Emailed WD over a week ago and received no reply. Emailed again a few days ago, same. May have been a good drive before but I suspect they've cheapened it up to cut costs and sacrificed quality.
