  • Summary: The title description says 32mb cache and Sata 3..... But the product description says 16mb cache and Sata 2. Hence, which is it. Sounds like a good price if and I mean if you know what you're buying because I'm not too sure that they even know what they are selling

Solid WD - as always

John H., Newegg
20 March 2015
  • Summary: Did I say I love WD? Newegg, as usual, rocks. The Seller, Tech Experts, packed the unit well and delivery was fast. Kudos to all!
  • Pros: Number one pro: It's Western Digital (just buy it) Good seek times for 3.0GB technology. I like that it offers a five year warranty, hopefully will not be needed. I bought this for a customer machine where SMART was indicating imminent failure. It's a somewhat older machine and the customer didn'...
  • Cons: Has the standard WD "squirrel cage" noises on drive access but I knew that going in. For whatever reason, all WD Black I've used in the past seem to have this issue.

Not really that great...

  • Summary: This drive came OEM in a computer, that had windows vista. I installed Win 7, and kept using it. This thing takes about 2 minutes to start up, and another 5 to actually be able to start any programs. It gets about 10MB write speed.
  • Pros: It has had minimal failures
  • Cons: Sooooooooooooooo slow.

Cheap

Christy S., Newegg
30 January 2015
  • Pros: I bought it on a good sale. Its refurbished and works great no problems
  • Cons: I'm kind of disappointed that WD couldn't put at least a 1 year warrantee on this product. It makes me feel hesitant to buy knowing they can't stand by a refurbished product longer than 90 days so it's up to you i have had it for at least 6 months now still works.
