Have several of various sizes and rank them third in life span.....

  • Summary: WD Black, not the green or blue label models are slightly less durable on the long haul than Hitachi and Toshibas. They seem to run hotter than the other two. They are quieter most of the time. And when you have four in a raid cabinet that is a plus feature! I keep plenty of cooling on them.

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

  • 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 fast

  • Summary: I mostly got this drive for the excellent warranty terms. After several months of usage I have had no problems with functionality. The drive is super fast and that is very noticeable when playing games with loading screens, they go by incredibly quickly. However, the drive is rather noisy. This isn't so much a problem when doing a big read or write, but when programs access its contents infrequently the sound of the read head clicking around can be annoying.

Fast and large

  • Summary: The drive was just what we needed in two cases. It is fast and it has loads of space. Short of going to an SSD drive, I am not sure if there is a better drive out there.
