Testing these for reliability

Mark H., Newegg
7 January 2016
  • Summary: Smaller HDDs are doomed with the onset of affordable SDDs. But larger HDDs will be around a bit longer. My luck with HDDs over the years is not good. SO....I'm trying the 'expensive' ones as an experiment. Bought 2 of these for RAID 1. I'll update when / if shi- happens.
  • Pros: No problems so far
  • Cons: None

Great Drive, Easy Install, Quiet

Robert G., Newegg
24 July 2015
  • Summary: I don't understand why some customers complain that the drive goes clackety-clack loudly, unless they've installed it in a machine with a badly out-dated main-board. I installed mine without a hitch in Win 7 64-bit, with a sata III cable I ordered along with it, and am having no issues so far.
  • Pros: 2 TB of storage for a great price 5 year OEM warranty Runs quiet
  • Cons: It's not a 3, 4, or 5 TB drive!

Fast and reliable

BRAD M., Newegg
24 April 2015
  • Summary: I still have an old Matsushita built Connor Fireball in use. No one builds quality like this anymore. A crying shame. These enterprise drives are the best that are available today and are worth the additional cost.
  • Pros: When buying anything, one must consider ownership experience for the expected duration. One must also consider the value of their time.Ten years ago, everything was made better, with a longer expected life. Today, we all want cheap, so the manufacturers are producing just that, cheap. And the lif...
  • Cons: I had a problem once trying to install this on an eight year old machine. There was some limitation in the BIOS and it could not format and partition it. I put it in a newer machine to format and all was well. These new drives have vertical data storage on the platter which understandably require...

My New Favorite

Michael S., Newegg
9 April 2015
  • Summary: I have two of these and two of the WD blacks (all 2TB). I have run them side by side in three different systems and this drive always wins in every way. Transferring the same files to and from each drive (to and from an SSD), this drive is consistently faster in both directions.
  • Pros: Faster than the WD Black Quieter than the WD Black 128 MB Cache Better sustained transfer rates than the WD Black
  • Cons: A bit on the pricey side. I can no longer say WD makes the best HDD's
