what’s the reason for degradation with WD my passport drives ?
i bought a wd my passport last week and it showed only 4800 rpm on crystaldiskinfo and i immediately booked a replacement…
i got a replacement today, and the replacement which i got, again, it’s a defective product which doesnt match up the description shown on amazon (5400 rpm)
Genuine (Bought it on 2020)
Country of origin : Thailand
Thailand manufacturing team is fooling people who doesnt perform HDD tests on newly bought disks which is minority… The Packing and presentation done by Thailand team is excellent however they are compromising the wd company’s reputation by producing cheaper disks like this.
i have currently escalated the issue to amazon where they told me they will investigate the issue and contact me again on 29 August, 2022…
i am not going to use this “My Passport” drive as i am planning to get a refund for this… For a change, i will buy the wd my Elements 5 Tb to see at least if they are 5400 rpm… So disappointed.
whenever i used to buy a wd HDD, i used to have a greater joy on the day while im about to receive it, Now, i lost the joy, i am now only overthinking “will the product be genuine ? or will i have to deal with the hassle of replacement and returns ?”
Even if the prices go up for 5400 rpm drives, im ok with that but please don’t compromise on the performance in an efforts to save manufacturing and product costs.
