I think its great WD has finally entered the SSD market BUT I am concerned that every WD Blue and Green SSD ONLY includes a 3-year limited warranty.
WD has been my only choice in mechanical Hard Drives for as long as they have been making them I always exclusively purchase WD Black drives because of the 5 year warranty they have (In the last 12 years I have only had 1 WD Black drive go bad on me out of at least 25 purchased through out the years…all of them are still working even my old 250gb, 80gb ones too, and WD promptly replaced the one bad one under warranty).
If WD expects to succeed in the SSD market then you have to beat Samsung…right now they have the bear share of the market and the consumer confidence because they offer a 5 year on their EVO SSDs and 10 year warranty on their PRO SSD drives.
WD is still new to the SSD market so we really don’t know how reliable the product will really be and only a 3 year warranty does not give me the warm and fuzzy feeling that WD is confident in their product.
Right now if WD wants my SSD business then WD needs to match the same Warranty as Samsung …I would say WD Blue and Green SSDs need to be at least 5 years, and WD Black SSDs (When they finally announce them) should be 10 years.
