Yep, glad to see you here Freeagent! Since you actually had a drive fail so quickly, maybe that will be the key. And send Amy a private message explaining your situation because maybe...just saying maybe...they can switch it to a different drive at the repair center. If they throw in another WD SSHD, then you may have more issues. I did hear they have other models of the SSHD but I don't know for certain. I just know this issue has been going on since way before Christmas.

 

But Amy is a great rep and hopefully she can help you out!

I'm just curious what will they do at my repair center. Can't wait to see the results. They really should offer another drive instead of replacing it with the same faulty model. But I guess they are doing much more than just replacing the drive, as the repair is still in progress. That's why I'm so curious about it. Maybe even my drive is under the tests and experiments that could help them understand what causes the problem. I hope not, as this will probably take MUCH time.

Are the Mods still working on this?

 

I just mailed in my laptop,

I hope I don't get a similar hard drive with the same issues,

otherwise I might not be able to return it again.

I wish I'd seen this thread yesterday morning, I wouldn't have gone out and bought a Y70 Touch Screen last night. Slow, freezing, and an error message that says "Windows detected a hard disk problem" In the details of the message it says the failure is being reported by "Disk Name WDCWD10S21X-24R1BT0-SSHD-8GB, Volume C:\D:\

 

On paper this looked like a pretty decent machine. You would think that if the manufacturer knows that the drive is causing problems they would stop using it and find one that is reliable. This system is being returned today, undecided if I will try another of the same model or just ask for a refund.

Judging by the vast number of people having trouble with this computer I would think your choice is clear.

 Yup, Broken y70,

 

I had that same exact hard drive, it failed after only 2 days. 

My laptop just arrived for repair today..

 

problem is, this is the 2nd laptop I've mailed back to them in a month,

 

Those 1TB SSHD Western Digital drives are lemons,

they must of bought those in bulk for cheap knowing they were of really low quality.

 

The specs on the paper look good, but the guts are proving otherwise.

 

If on my 3rd laptop I get the same hard drive and the same issues, I'm just going to return it for my full money back and go somewhere else.

 

I purchased a laptop 2 months ago, this is ridicolous having to wait.

 

Other manufacturers mailed me out a new laptop as soon as they saw that mine was in shipping transit to their service center. They'd just bill you if you didn't actually send them the computer.

 

Obviously Lenovo doesn't trust the customer so I'm sitting here like an idiot angry as hell that I've been sold 2 lemons within a month.

 

I'm getting tired of these problems, It's been causing me too much time, stress, and frustration. 

 

I hate these stupid hard drives.

The more I dig, the worse it looks for the Lenovo brand.  I skimmed through this thread - https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Removal-Instructions-for-VisualDiscovery-Superfish-application/ta-p/2029206, and it seems that the company really isn't very responsive to the needs of their customers.

I can confirm they are still working on it.

 

I recommand not buying a model with the WD 1000+8 drive, the other models  seem fine
