THEY CALL THIS A BLACK DRIVE

monica, Amazon
4 May 2014
  • Summary: WD BLACK TO ME IS SPEED. BE AWARE THE SSD WRITE SPEED IS PAINFULLY SLOW IN THE NEW SSD WORLD. THEN THE 1 TB DRIVE IS 5400RPM REALLY?????? TO CALL THIS A BLACK DRIVE THE SSD READ AND WRITE SPEEDS SHOULD BE 400 OR BETTER. THE 1TB DRIVE SHOULD BE 7200RPM OR BETTER.

One Big Headache

S. Simpson, Amazon
6 April 2014
  • Summary: Let me start off by saying that I shop frequently with Amazon and have returned items in the past, but this item has been the first that I have felt the need to write a review. First, let me state that MAYBE I just received a defective device, but the entire process of dealing with said device was a huge waste of my time. I had initially intended on cloning my current operating system onto this new drive.

Not MAC compatible as of 2/8/2014

Zac Adam, Amazon
8 February 2014
  • Summary: In the system requirements of the description, it states "Mac OS X (Coming Winter 2013)". As of 2/8/2014, if you go to Western Digital's website, it states differently. Go to the following URL: [...] Click on FAQ --> OS Questions and you'll see the following: * Will the WD Black2drive work in a Mac? The Mac OS is not supported at this time.

No better than a normal HDD

Garry, Amazon
28 September 2014
  • Summary: Got this for a New build computer - G1 sniper 5 Motherboard, i7 4790 quad core processor, 32gb Vegeance memory, GeForce GTX 770 Graphics, 850w power supply, Blue-ray rewriter. After completing the build & installing OS & a couple of Games I tested the rig out & noticed lagging in game (152 mb broadband) which my old i5 quad core had no problem playing. I upgraded the cooling system thinking 50c was maybe causing the problem on CPU.

Received a second hand drive - packaging seals broken

Andrew, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: Ordered new on Prime fulfilled by Amazon - arrived next day as expected but had been already opened before I got it. The plastic seals were broken and the drive had not been replaced correctly in the packaging. This is not what I expect from Amazon. I am quite shocked and very disappointed.

THIS IS NOT A 1TB SDD drive

Bugeyed, Amazon

  • Summary: This is actually a 1TB hard drive with a 120gb SDD drive built in. It is the Western Digital Dual drive and is retailing at £220. Google the drive identifier to find out more but certainly do not be conned by this false advertising [...
