The WD reputation, for what it's worth. Usually good quality at reasonable prices.
Drive read errors in new drive only 1 week old
I bought this WD Blue SSD against the advice of a very learned computer expert, who recommended the Intel equivalent. Based on price, and largely based on the good reputation of, and personal experience with, WD Blue HDD. I have so far been disappointed. When it's working, it's amazing. I replaced the boot partition of my WD Black HDD with this one. It is crazy fast, and so quiet.
Problem is this drive is exactly one week old today, and three times now I have gotten hard drive read errors when I boot. _ctrl__alt__del_, like it tells me to do, brings it up OK. Fine, but not really. There is a problem. It should not do this.
I'm heading into the store today to see about getting a warranty replacement. I hope I get the great level of service I get when I am spending hundreds of dollars there.
