I’m making a do not buy recommendation on Western Digital drives.

It’s my own fault for not checking at the time, but they’d dropped the warranty period on their green desktop drives to only 2 years (btw, check your computer warranties, their drives often have only 1 year).

The drive that just failed on me is only a couple months out of warranty, but a far cry less than the 3 years I’m used to (or the 5 they once were).

Unacceptable! Never buying WD or HGST (now owned by WD) again.
