"Very Reliable and Durable SATA HDD. Recommended!"

B3tonyc, CNET
15 December 2011
  • Pros: I had this hard drive since 2009. I constantly save huge data files, average of 2GB. This hard drive has performed flawlessly with my custom build PC. I constantly use my computer system to do some heavy duty stuff for hours on end.
  • Cons: After three years constant use, the drive crashed, as of 12/14/2011 Overall it performed very well. RIP HDD and my DATA!! You will be missed!

Wayne, rakuten
18 May 2009
  • Summary: this drive is fast and should be very reliable (WD warranty is 5 years)- I like the fact it has bearing at both end and uloads the heads - nice and not to forget it's one TB - I hope WD comes out with 2TB Black drive - they do have the green 2 TB but it's only 5400RPM

Western Digital Internal Hard Drive 1T

Franco, rakuten
10 May 2009
  • Summary: This was a great buy the installation and formatting was a snap, just do not buy the SATA one side right angle connector what you need is 18" both side straight, this will eliminate take trip to the store and waste of resources.

Easy install

  • Summary: Worked well in my Mac. I installed this, formatted it (couple of hours) and backed up my original drive onto it. Then removed the original, swapped in the Terabyte, and have had no trouble at all. Love the 5 yr warranty.

What more do you want?

JC Denton, rakuten
19 April 2009
  • Summary: I always buy WD and have yet to be disappointed. I used this drive to upgrade my external storage. I had a 250gig drive in a Max4 enclosure. I popped that out and popped this in for a huge increased in storage space. Formatted it and I haven't had a single complain in a month. Like someone else on here wrote, you basically can't get better performance than this unless you go for a Raptor or solid state drive..

Great drive for the money.

rakuten
15 April 2009
  • Summary: This is a great drive for the money. If you need better performance look drives w/fewer platters like the new Seagate. Otherwsie, the only other issue that I have is w/Buy.com. One of the pictures that they have illustrating the product is one of the product in retail packaging. That's very missleading & something of a lie. It is not retail product. That's one of the reasons I bought from Buy.com was to get the retail product. That was my only qualm.

Easy Peasy

  • Summary: Doesn't get any easier than this to boost your storage. WD makes good products. This drive has the best specs of all the drives that are 1TB in size. Also has the 5 year warranty but hopefully won't have to use it.
