No. Black is faster then blue. DEMAND proper product.

Yeah that is what I was thinking.. Not sure why they would send out something different.

If it were a 1tb black i would not complain but a 750 blue? Call them, contact them, let them know they sent the wrong replacement and your not happy about the mix up.

Finally got a message back this is what I was told.

Quote:
If the drive is not in stock, Western Digital will upgrade the drive's capacity. That way the customer does not have to wait until we get available stock.

If you have any further questions, please reply to this email and we will be happy to assist you further.
lol ya they upgraded the capacity but lowered the quality. Oh well, it's a back up drive anyways so not a huge deal I suppose.

They still should have replaced it with the same or higher quality of drive. But the Blues are excellent drives. Unless it's an OS drive you probably won't notice the difference.
