Warranty

The best warranty is one you never have to use - but should the need occur - we're proud to provide a superior level of support and service coverage to our customers.

90 Day OWC Replacement Warranty
OWC is proud to offer an extended replacement window of 90 days on new internal hard disk drives. Once a return authorization number has been issued and we receive the problematic drive back, you will get a brand new replacement drive, rather than a factory refurbished drive.

2 Year Western Digital Warranty
After 90 days, the drive is fully backed by the manufacturer to be free from defects in material and workmanship for the remainder of the two year warranty period.

Rating: 5/5 Performs as advertised April 26, 2017 Replaced original 500GB HDD on late 2009 iMac. Installation was relatively easy and the WD drive fit nicely even though it is slightly thicker than the original drive. After formatting and loading OS 10.12.4 everything is operating as well or better than when the computer was new. Upgrading RAM from 4 to 8 or 12GB will be the next step and should improve performance with Sierra.

Rating: 5/5 Works great! April 13, 2017 Replaced my original hard drive (800mb) in my early 2008 iMac plus updated ram with max amount (6GB). All works great and went in like a charm. Great online how to video. Had some difficulty with restoring operating system. I thought using Time Machine backup was enough. Hadn't investigated enough but phone call to support answered my questions, told me what to do and sent me in the right direction. Was the hardest part of the upgrade. None of the info "perfectly" matched my set up. Highly recommend these guys and will definitely use them again. Fast service too. Also bought the basic tool kit which was perfect, especially needed the suction cups.

Rating: 5/5 Excellent April 10, 2016 Had a Seagate drive in an OWC external enclosure, and started getting error messages from my drive monitoring software. Decided to replace it with this WD drive, due to price and reviews. It's very quiet (unlike my old, clicking Seagate), and has performed admirably to this point.

Rating: 5/5 Spin Drive Spin February 16, 2016 Not much to say here. They always last at least two years. Never had a failure with one before that. Ran some of them three years, though its not recommended. WD's are pretty tough boots. One could spend more on a different color, but no need really.

Rating: 5/5 Working Fine February 14, 2015 Needed to replace the HD in my late 2009 iMac and there were a couple choices. Did some research and spoke with a rep at OWC and decided on the WD drive, based somewhat on research as well as rep. Didn't steer me this way, but listened and discussed my options intelligently, all the while making me very comfortable that my best interests were most important. Also made sure I had everything I needed to install, along with making sure I was okay & confident in doing the install myself. Thanks to the rep and to the on-line video, I was confident and got it done. So far, so good. Been 6 weeks and, fingers crossed, will continue for years to come. Thanks OWC.

Rating: 5/5 Very quiet and fast backup drive September 26, 2014 I got this Western Digital drive to replace a Seagate drive that failed in a LaCie enclosure. That prior drive was rather noisy when starting up and I was always annoyed by it. The new WD drive is very, very quiet, and I'm really pleased.

Shopping on OWC is easy and informative. Delivery was quick. However, the first drive I received was DOA -- it would not format. I arranged for a return on the OWC site and even called a Customer Service guy to ask some questions. He was both knowledgable and courteous. I shipped back the bad drive and received the replacement. It works great. My only complaint is that I think OWC should consider paying for return shipments of faulty merchandise.

Rating: 5/5 Perfect for my needs July 12, 2014 I needed to expand the storage space of my old iMac 2007 that came with a now paltry 250 GB. Once I installed the 1 TB Caviar drive I could finally put all my stuff in one single drive and still have space left. I did not want to go higher than 1 TB because I will be getting a new Mac Pro later this year and this one will become my development automation server. The price is great and it is very fast and most of all quiet. I could hear my old drive, especially when booting the computer. With this drive my iMac feels like my daughter's MBA. If you don't need more than one TB this is the drive to choose.
