Great product

  • Summary: I only buy wd hard drives so this was a easy choice for me. I love the reliability of WD drives. The use of this is a storage drive in my gaming rig. My main drive is a crucial ssd. But for all my storage I use the WD. I use 2 of these and the 3tb external drive for back up purposes. So overall I would say buy it. The WD black is the performance series. If you want to save a few and don't care about speed get the WD green. Either way you will be happy.

High Quality Hard-Drive

MOAR COARS, Amazon
7 December 2012
  • Summary: WD is known for making outstanding hard-drives and this HDD is simply amazing and super fast. I have been using this HDD for well over 5+ months now and I have not had any problems with it(knocks on wood). I bought this HDD because I have a large collection of video games and I needed a HDD that was large enough for all my games. I have over 650GB+ of games installed in this HDD and there is still plenty of room for more.

Easy as pie!

Amazon Customer "SusieQ", Amazon
11 November 2012
  • Summary: I have enough room on 3 partitions to store my photos on one (without having to access it all the time for searches), my work data on a second (so I can find it easily) and my personal data on the C partition. I installed a new copy of Windows 7 on the new hard drive and it was very easy.

Have hope for these HDs yet

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I originally looked for 2 - 1TB WD Black to recreate my RAID 1, after having had two failures with my Seagate Barracuda 1TB disks. What I found instead was 2 - 1.5TB WD Black disks for an extra nine dollars a piece, as compared to the 1TB disks. I bought them and were received in a few days. They seem to work fine as individual units, since I've had no time to recreate my RAID 1 yet.

Great option for primary or secondary disk space

Karl Fehd, Amazon
1 September 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this to install Steam on since my boot drive was running out of space. I was running on (early SATA) Raid 0 config before and so far the caviar black seems to run things faster by itself than the raid setup. Eventually I plan to replace the old RAID setup with SSD but this drive was a great in-between option for me while I save up $$.

Great Drive

Amazon Customer "Az Skippy", Amazon
1 September 2012
  • Summary: Needed to upgrade for more room. I used WD before and this was a good price, considering that there are no more "great" prices since the Thailand floods. Easy installation, no bad sectors, no problems in 3 weeks of use. Quiet, fast and roomy. What more could you want? Well, cheaper, of course.
