Two weeks ago I bought WD Caviar Blue 1TB from a local store.
At first, I got a defect product. When I got home, my computer can’t recognize the drive. But BIOS detected the drive as PL1.0KS3 (this is my issue).
So I returned the drive for a new replacement, claiming my warranty.
A week later the new drive arrived. (Took them a week to replace because they said the distributor was out of stock.)
Checked the hard drive, looks good, Installed Windows 8.1 Pro. Everything works fine then.
Until I realize something this morning.
My computer detect the drive as PL1.0KS3.
I thought this is really weird, it was supposed to be detected as WDC WD10EZEX right?
So I decided to look for some information about this.
There’s no detailed information about PL1.0KS3. I’ve searched everywhere, googled it. None. No result.
I even checked on some benchmark test/site even this forum… no result. nothing recognize this PL1.0KS3.
Then I unmount the drive frome my computer, to get a closer look.
This is what I found.
The serial number on the label says: [Deleted]
So I run HD Tune Pro and Speccy to see if it matched.
Here’s the result:
So what do you guys think?
Is my “WD Caviar Blue” legit or a fake one?
I need to be sure.
Thanks in advance for any informations and help.
