Reliable non-Advanced Format drive

PAUL G., Newegg
26 October 2015
  • Pros: In certain cases or with certain cloning software versions, when cloning a non-Advanced Format HD for an older system, you may need the replacement HD to also be non-Advanced Format (i.e. physical sector size = 512 B/sector, not 1096 B/sector), even with SP1 Win7 which has been patched to recogni...
  • Cons: OEM non-Advanced Format drives can be expensive.

Excellent Mule for your SSD =)

William B., Newegg
3 August 2015
  • Summary: I'll likely be getting another drive in this series for additional storage because I've enjoyed it's reliability so much.
  • Pros: Very good Performance/Capacity-to-Price ratio. Hasn't skipped a beat in my 2.5+ years of ownership with my demanding video editing workload of 100's of GB of raw video footage and heavy gaming usage (numerous 40-60GB games such as those in the Battlefield series, Titanfall, and MMORPG's). That 64...
  • Cons: Experiencing SSD's has ruined my tastes for speed, so if you're like me, you'll still want an SSD to helm your OS and a few flagship games. This drive will pick up the storage slack wonderfully though ("wonderfully" compared to lesser mechanical hard drives).

Update

  • Summary: I would suggest Newegg allow posters to edit their posts...
  • Pros: Fast. Works. Resurrected it somehow. Removed it from the enclosure and plugged it directly into my Mac Pro. Might have been the enclosure it was in. Works fine now. Disregard previous review.
  • Cons: None so far.

Reliable, fast, 5year warranty

  • Pros: I have had several disk arrays with those, 60+ drives, since 2010. Had 2 drives fail in the first 1year ( controller would not recognize them, WD replaced them promptly).
  • Cons: none

Can't beat a WD Black

Anonymous, Newegg
29 October 2014
  • Pros: Fast, reliable, no-nonsense, hard disk drive for those who need fast performance that they can count on. You can't go wrong with a Western Digital Black drive.
  • Cons: None that I can think of. Except for drives used in NAS configurations, or perhaps special requests from some folks for whom I'll build a system, this is pretty much the only drive I use in addition to the obligatory SSD.

Great reliable drive.

Daniel C., Newegg
2 October 2014
  • Summary: I did have a few bad sectors (had some CRC errors) on the occasional file for about 6 months after I finally stuffed it into my tower. For the number of times that I dropped it while it was running that seems par for the course really. They were all recoverable though, so no data loss.
  • Pros: I've had this drive for over 3 years now. Fast for a spindle drive, have been able to clock this thing at 120-130 MB/s throughput on reads and a tad slower on writes. Never tried the random read/writes though. Don't usually see it drop lower than 90ish MB/s with transfers of lots of pictures (5-1...
  • Cons: I haven't had any bad experiences with this drive in any way.

Nice Size, Great Drive

Cedrick F., Newegg
19 September 2014
  • Pros: It's 2TB and reliable. It's the data drive for my system -- I use an SSD to run the OS. While it's obviously slower than an SSD, it's not noticeably slow when it's purpose is archiving and retrieving data. It functions with no problems and for a while I even used it as a "flash drive" by plugging...
  • Cons: None.
