Works well but pretty Loud

  • Summary: The benchmarks from review site states that this is a pretty fast drive and I occur. Also comes with a 5 year warranty which is pretty cool. As for temperature, I don't check often, but it is about the same as my other drives (hitachi and seagate storage drives) On the other hand though, it is pretty noisy...wow is it noisy during seeking, the loudest component on my desktop which has 4 case fans. Reminds me of the old IBM pc days lol.

Works very well, but some space seems to be missing

NovaMage, Amazon

  • Summary: The drive itself works flawlessly, does not make noise at all, and doesn't consume too much power for a hard drive. However, since day 1 I installed it, it's showing as 1.7TB on my windows 7 desktop. I didn't bother much with it, thinking that maybe windows or something else took space on the drive... but 300GB is quite a chunk. Nonetheless, a good drive for the price.

Noisy but OK 2TB HD

George G. Stillwell, Amazon
4 December 2013
  • Summary: Installed in iMac 27 inch mid 2010 model. This drive is very noisy (clunky). Runs hot in this iMac as the fan kicks up on high after about ten or fifteen minutes and stays there until computer goes to sleep for about 10 minutes. Does seem to function OK though.

You can't go wrong with WD drives

  • Summary: You can't go wrong with WD drives. I stack them in Raid 0 arrays for speed. It's amazing how these keep going while Seagate drives die like maple leaves.

Reliable

The Realdeal, Amazon

  • Summary: Black drives five-year (best in class). The Black drives typically have a larger buffer as well as higher rotational speed (7200RPM vs. ~5200RPM) which equates to better performance vs greens. The Blue drives have very similar performance to the Black drives on average, except they come with a three-year limited warranty. Black has a larger cache vs. The blue (same RPM 7200). I will purchase again and again.

  • Summary: Excellent drive. The only drawback is that it sleeps, but spins up quick enough to not be too annoying. Fast, too.
