In relation to the American company Western Digital, which is engaged in the production of hard drives, a trial has begun.

Complaints began to come that WD incorrectly labeled hard drives – the company sold slower ones under the guise of fast drives.

WD deliberately hid that the well-known line of CMR disks WD Red, intended for use in RAID and NAS, these are ordinary SMR disks. Users complain about a decrease in system speed and crashes.  Hard drive models that are incorrectly labeled:

  • 3.5 “WD Red 2 TB, 3 TB, 4 TB, 6 TB (SKU: WD20EFAX, WD30EFAX, WD40EFAX, WD60EFAX)
  • 3.5 “WD Blue 2TB, 6 TB (SKU: WD20EZAZ, WD60EZAZ)
  • 2.5 “WD Blue 1 TB, 2 TB (SKU: WD10SPZX, WD20SPZX)
  • 2.5 “WD Black 1 TB (SKU: WD10SPSX)

At first, Western Digital executives denied the allegations, but in the end they were forced to plead guilty. Now buyers are preparing a massive lawsuit against the company.
