Great performance mechanical drives

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...
Summary: I have several of these and they are simply the best drive hard drive you can buy when it comes to reliability. When I buy a new computer I typically replace the primary system drive with one of these. They have a 5 year warranty that Western Digital honors and they are fast.
WD Black are my choice for reliable, fast data storage!

Summary: WD drives have consistently been the fastest and most reliable I've used (my first computer was in 1978). Of dozens of drives, only one has ever failed and WD warranted the drive even though it was past the warranty period.
Bought Based on Prior Excellent Experience with Western Digital, Still Not Disappointed!

Summary: I had two older versions of this hard drive in my old gaming machine. They served me well, so when it was time to get a hard drive for my Dell Precision T3500 I trusted that the new model would work just as well. It's working just fine.
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.
Summary: It's not an SSD but I can't really dock a star for that, haha... This drive is quick and quiet. The only thing I hear when I turn my PC on is the fans. It's quite nice. WD Blacks seem to always outlast other brands. I've got an old IDE version that is still going strong.
It's been reliable in the years I've owned it. ...

Summary: It's been reliable in the years I've owned it. Bought it to replace my third failed Seagate drive. I'll probably be buying Western Digital from now on as I haven't had any failures with them so far.

Summary: so far so good. i've had this drive installed for 4 months. this replaced the OEM drive (seagate) that came with my computer two years ago. specifically bought this WD because my other drive is a WD black and it has been very reliable as well, running 24/7 in my PC for 4 years.
