Summary: I only use WD hard drives after considerable experience with other drives. I find WD to be the most reliable and I'm sticking with them. I have never had a problem with WD hard drives. I have 10 of these each 2TB in my system, 2 Black, 2 Red and the rest are Green and they have been working great after more than a year in service, The Blacks I have had for less than four months and the only difference I have noticed is the Black are 7200 RPM and run hotter than the 5400...
Summary: Stable, fast. Some people said in their review worry me a bit before I buy it. But after I installed everything find it's not as what they said, maybe a little noise, and thats common for each drive.
Summary: After trying several brands, I now only buy WD Black drives. I am currently using 10 drives which are each 1 or 2 TB capacity. Some of the drives are over 5 years old and I have never had a problem with any of them.
Summary: I first tried the HD on a 16-CAM surveillance system with 6 cam active (recording) at the same time and because of its efficiency the system could record them all easily, in my previous attempt with other HD the system could not even handle 3 cams. On my PC I benchmarked the HD with very good performance comparing to PC's factory installed HD. It is a great HD just a little expensive.
Summary: I have 8 of these in my system, and they have been working great after more than a year in service. The advantage of the 6Gbps interface can only be realized when several are striped and connected to a 6Gbps pipe, in my case LSI motherboard SAS 2.0, which gives transfer speeds about twice that of 3Gbps drives connected to the same interface. If you've only got one drive connected, you will not see what these are capable of.
