Not Quite Nothing But Trouble

Lawrence G., Newegg

  • Pros: Capacity and speed are OK for the price. The 5-year warranty is essential. But be aware that they will only RMA with a previously used drive, which may or may not have been reconditioned.
  • Cons: I bought three of five months ago. One of them failed after three months. I sent it back under the warranty. The replacement would not format. I sent it back and the replacement for the replacement would not format. I sent it back and the replacement for the replacement for the replacement would not format. Right now WD is offering me a WD3000FYYZ as a replacement. The problem is that all their replacement drives are previously used drives. ("Unfortunately we do not c...

Amazing Value

  • Summary: I've gone with WD for all my storage needs since they started making HDD's, and they have never let me down. Yes from time to time you get a bad one, but I trust this brand entirely. For the price, you cant beat this value, latest sata 6G, with an enormous amount of space. You'd be crazy to pass this up.

Premium Price, Poor Quality

  • Summary: Have been an avid fan of WD driver over the years, but I have experience two HHD failures in the past year on WD Black Caviar drives that I have purchased. The first one was a 1TB drive that died 2 months after I installed it as my system drive, lost all the data, but had a back-up so just had to go through the pain of replacing and the down time waiting for a replacement drive... was not all that un-happy given the years of good experience with WD drives.

  • Summary: Hi WD has always given me the reliability and performance over the years people has to learn that 5 stars means best and 1 star means bad common people pull your head out of your butts and know that now.

Excellent drive

  • Summary: Western Digital has come a long way in recent years, and their drives have gotten better. For the previous poster who stated not much difference between 3 Gbs and 6 Gbs with windows experience rating still being 5.9. You will not see a difference there until hard drive spins become faster. The index only measures seek and retrieval times on the hard drive, and since currently 7200 rpm spin is the average, your index will not change with conventional drives.

Ok, not as good as I thought it was going to be.

  • Summary: Fast, but not much faster than 3.0 GBPS HDD. Only a 5.9 Windows Experience index. I do not see much difference between this black drive and the green drive. WD is great quality and I would still recommend this to someone as long as they get a good sale on it.

Affordable, Reliable, Quality Product

  • Summary: I have three of these drives. Two are in my home media server and have been running 24 7 for at least a month without problems. The third is in my desktop (along with a SSD boot disk and a 2Tb RAID-0 consisting of two 1Tb drives). I edit copious amounts of HD video, and despite the demands, the drives just keep working.
