I’ve never had a problem with WD BEFORE i got a WD10EARS. then the pain and misery began, each time suffering from the same fault.
first one i got, hooked it up, did a 4k Format worked for a good 3 months, then the I/O errors began to rear their ugly head.
exactly the same with the second drive and now the third.

Ran this 3 times to check wether or not it was lying to me but no, exactly the same thing.
The thing is my WD10EACS hasn’t had a problem, and its getting on abit.
I’ve tried it in different sata ports / different OS’s / Different PC and still the same.
Is there someone who can get me a NEW drive, as it seems the refurbished ones were fit for the scrap heap
