Advanced format drive going straight back - probably works fine


#1

Just got one of these advanced format 1TB drives.  It says to use a jumper on pins 7 & 8, but WD decided not to include one.  No problem, I figured, just call support.  Nope - support was useless.  They don’t give you a jumper.  Do they just assume we have them laying around?

I’m sending this back to Amazon, and since it cost me money and time, it’ll be the LAST Western Digital drive I buy for a LONG time.  I’d recommend everyone avoid this “Advanced Format Drives” until WD learns to include everything you need.

I’m off to Amazon to leave yet another 1-star review on this product.  I guess I should have read them, but maybe someone else will.  Cheap idiots…
