IOW, firmware behavior is absurd
In reply to Jim Cockfield, May 1, 2013

IOW, Western Digital's  Firmware behavior is absurd from those WD drive models, leaving problem sectors in a "pending" state versus remapping them to spares when problems are first detected.

Hint: don't trust the SMART data from them.

Better yet, just don't buy the cheaper WD Drive models like that, as you probably won't know they have issues until you lose important data.
