Fantastic

Susan S., Newegg
25 May 2015
  • Summary: I've had this thing as a data and program drive alongside an ssd C drive, and it's awesome. I'm using about 300GB of the 931 available. I thought it'd be slow, but i'm getting 120MB/s seq read and write, 512KB random read 76 and 132 write, 4KB random is 0.728 read and 1.465 write, and 4KB (QD32)...
  • Pros: -fast -1tb! -quiet (makes little working noises when read/write but otherwise silent) -it hasn't failed
  • Cons: -it's now 180 bucks. i got it at 100 -931 GB formatted isn't technically a terabyte but it's good enough

Great HDDs

Robert N., Newegg
3 April 2015
  • Summary: Don't actually buy this model anymore. You can get other equivalent and better HDDs for cheaper. I think this was probably 1st generation for what what is common nowadays.
  • Pros: Been running two of these as secondary storage since they came out 4-5 years ago. Absolutely no problems, working fine to this day, very reliable.
  • Cons: Too expensive to be competitive on the current market.

Great performance mechanical drives

Randall S., Newegg
20 March 2015
  • Summary: I have used these drives in performance builds for a long time they work great in raid arrays or as a single drive. When i have a build build that requires large storage but still needs the extra speed I use the Black drives, If speed is not needed I use the blue drives, so far for the last 5 years...
  • Pros: Performance Reliability Quiet
  • Cons: none

WD is Tops.

Victor M., Newegg
17 February 2015
  • Summary: Not sure how they do it but Win 7 managed to load up in less than 30 seconds.
  • Pros: Fast Load times. Reads faster than you would think by looking at numbers and benchmarks, which are always best case scenario anyway, and can deliver SSD near speed when loading games. Ok. Write times.
  • Cons: I only put this in the con because it does write slower then the WD Blue 1TB. Almost by 50-60 MB/s with the same file sometimes. Maybe not the best drive for content creation. And yes, they can get loud depending on the application.

Still running strong after 1+ year

Gabriel M., Newegg
27 January 2015
  • Pros: Good price, decent sized HDD, runs flawlessly.
  • Cons: The first arrived dead. Fortunately, Newegg's service was great, and they printed a return label for me. I was really afraid that the nw drive would also not survive as it was travelling on its own, but it was so well-packed that I shouldn't have worried. Great stuff.
