    Bought a cheap recertified WD 2tb purple drive, drive gone bad as it's not detected so being lazy to do it meself pay a fee let my local store handle it for me

    A month and it's back, yay!!! go collect it..WD give me another drive still recertified but different serial number. Plug it in and guess what nothing, send in a broken drive return me broken drive

    My luck in RMA..:haha:

    Wow... that's bad. I'm not having the great record using WD hard disk. I have a WD Green 2TB with bad sectors.

    I have got all kinds of hard disks got broken in front of me: Seagate, WD and Maxtor. It seems that the mechanical parts inside are often to blame on this failures.

    Without much more inspection, I directly send it back to the store. Worst part is: I can't dig out SMART data inside! Everything just refused to work! Plus, the Task Manager has the disk activity 100% but 0kb/s on both read and write operation!! :wall

    The horrible part is some of my data is inside. It would never be recovered. Luckily I still have bits of data which is elsewhere in my cloud storage!

    Looks like I will avoid Apacer SSD after your experience...

    I got back my SSD middle last month. They replaced it with a newer one and a slightly improved version. I gave them back that Apacer Armor, now I have the Panther.

    Unfortunately, the anxiety of this SSD dying is still there, they can't replace that for sure!! :wall:

    That was a pretty long RMA. I guess backup is still very important regardless of media type used.
