Better than Segate

j60504,, TigerDirect.com
4 August 2012
  • Summary: I had bought a seagate 2T hd and installed it. They had no support when necessary. WD had a small video and a pdf file to follow. Got installed without to many problems. Was recognized in the BIOS on 1st bootup. Had to talk to WD Bombay to get the HD recognized in Win7 but that only took about 15 min and copied all the data on I needed. Its Kinda noisy.

Do not buy this drive

  • Summary: Okay this drive barley out performs my segate drives i also own. For the difference in price your crazy to buy this even you WD fanboy's. WD was my choice harddrive until there prices went through the roof, buy one of the other ompanies and force WD to bring there prices back to a realistic price. All in all this drive is not worth what they want for it.

WINDOWS EXPERIENCE INDEX is not a true benchmark

MSwhip, TigerDirect.com
28 September 2011
  • Summary: When it comes to HDD like this one, the 5.9 index is artificially capped. It is a known fact that any HDD will not go beyond the discretional pseudo 5.9 cap established by Microsoft for any HDD. Only SDD are able to go over and beyond that. So do not consider the Index unless your mark is lower than 5.9 in which case the Index is still seriously flawed.

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

LLAVOE, TigerDirect.com
10 March 2011
  • 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.

Works just fine.

I. Sato "MysteriousJogo", Amazon
22 November 2013
  • Summary: Installed it into a gaming PC to be a dedicated games drive. Works just fine, runs at the typical HD sound level, slower than SSD but faster than typical HD. Would recommend, as normal with Hard Drives the reported size by Windows is less than that specified by the manufacturer (difference in the way that Windows measures megabytes, etc) - once installed I had approx 1.7-1.8 terabytes of operational space.

WD is the only choice left ..

Amazon Customer "I don't fear death, I just d..., Amazon
31 October 2013
  • Summary: My opinion of course (maybe Samsung) but I've had my fill of Hitachi and Seagate - their failure rates are far too high these days. This is my first black drive - I bought a 1TB and 2TB and unfortunately the 1TB decided not to show itself to the bios for 3-5 mins after turning on my machine so it had to go back. Apart from that they are fast and have a 5 year warranty (regardless of whether you purchase the retail or OEM verson).
