  • Summary: I bought 4 of these to replace 4 500 GB drives. However, one of them was dead on arrival. I went through Western Digital's site for Advance Replacement, but got a call from a rep saying they are experiencing a shortage of these drives and they would not be able to replace it for a couple weeks.

  • Summary: Over the last 5 or so years I've went through 6 drives. 3 were replaced under warranty. WD sent out fast warranty replacments. In this respect they were excellent. However they send out "refurbed drives" under warranty claims.

  • Summary: This is an expensive drive. Its fast but noisy under load and I dont think most people would notice any difference between this drive and cheaper models.It has a good warranty and is ideal for those who want performance and dont mind the grinding noises.

Amazing drives, Amazon - ingly poor packing.

  • Summary: Purchased two of these drives to go along 2 others that I have. Have to say the drives are nothing short of outstanding. Hand on heart I can honestly say the 2 that I currently have run on a P8P67 Pro on 6GBs sata ports in Raid 0 and they give my 2 x M4 SSD`s a run for their money, these drives...

  • Summary: I spent many many hours trying to get this drive to work with Intel RST - but couldnt. (Possibly not the drives fault) I also found that the drive I had was giving terrible performance figures. so I returned it.. And discovered that amazon had quietly pulled it from their shelves..

Laughably poor packaging

  • Summary: I have no idea how good this product is, as it was so poorly packaged I sent it straight back to amazon for a refund. It arrived in a squashed looking cardboard envelope, inside which the hd was wrapped in just a layer or two of bubble wrap( and under that I assume an anti static bag).

very noisy!

  • Summary: I usually buy Samsung hard drives as they are very quiet & never go wrong. This time around, I wanted the SATA-III 6BG/s feature, so decided to buy two WD Caviar Black drives to run as a RAID 1 unit. I have no problem at all with the performance of the WD drives, but they are so noisy!

  • Conclusion: Вобщем винт как винт. Вот что говорит HD Tune об этом винте: Скорость: мин. 42 мб/с макс. 142 мб/с средняя 100 мб/с. Среднее время ожидания : 9.9 мс (в характеристиках 4.2 мс). Для сравнения 3ТБ Seagate: Скорость: мин. 150 мб/с макс. 205 мб/с средняя 178 мб/с. Среднее время ожидания : 11 мс
