I said this is the first drive to fail and that WD are still the best. It's hardly slating them. I just want to know what other peoples experiences with Hard drives are and not to slate any company. (Ok maybe Segate because they do suck really bad) How about I just forget I even bothered to ask people their experiences which has been ignored and just have an argument about the way I posted. Never mind how some of the replies are written.

OK, no worries, I was just saying that you can't blame people for thinking that you are slating them because of how the OP is worded.

Anyway, we shouldn't quabble and get back OT. Well in my experience with Hard-drives I've always gone with WD and have not had one issue so far (touch wood). I've had pre-built systems in the past that have all used WD drives and none failed. That is the reason why I will always choose WD . I've got a 2TB black in my system now and that hasn't missed a beat since I purchased it (about 11 months ago). I've never used one of the "Green" drives so I can't really comment on them.

Thank you, and my apologies. It seems to be the same for me with WD drives. Maybe I just got one of the Greens before they finished re-calling and replacing them. Although I bought mine before the floods so it was only £60 a year ago. I will get a replacement from WD (Hopefully) but plan to buy only Blues and Blacks in the future due to spin speed.

No worries and no need to apologize. Yeh, you might have just had one from the bad batch, but we can only guess. I've never had to RMA a drive but I've heard they are very good with RMA's

There was, I shouldn't have spoken to you like that for pointing something out.
And I'm hoping so!

yeah its all in the wording and sometimes ppl mistake your meanings but its all good. I myself love WD but I have had great luck with both WD and Seagates. In all the rigs I have built of late or have in my possession its only WD or Seagate.

Well thank you then

I was going to purchase a WD Green drive initially but the £100 for a 2 TB Black was too tempting .

Ha ha tom, I was waiting for you to praise WD in your videos. I do think WD are the best and I'm hoping my experience with their RMAs will be good.
It has to be said they are stupidly quiet, I have literally never heard it make a noise, even now it's failing.

Running an SSD for programs/OS means my WD Green never really gets accessed, but when it does, it does seem to make rather an annoying noise. Could just be mine though.
I have no real experience with hard drives, but I sway towards WD just through reading other people's accounts.
