I have this drive which is like 6 mnths old and now it has developed bad sectors and I am pretty unhappy about it. generally Retail drives with 5 year warranty are supposed to be better and should have lower failure rate. Now I will RMA this drive , but i will get an re-certfied drive from WD , that makes me even more unhappier.
A drive thats been used for plenty of hours and stuff i can live with the fact that i will get an re-cert in RMA, but giving an recertified drive for few months old drive ? UNFAIR
Do i have any options here ? Can i ask WD to give me a new one instead of a re-certified ?
