Seems ok so far...

  • Summary: I've only had this drive a month or so, so obviously I can't speak to long-term reliability or anything. Speed seems fine, but not awesome (really 7200PM is what most desktop drives were up until the "smartpower/intellipower" stuff came along, so this shouldn't surprise me). The 5yr warranty provides some comfort.

Pricing on Caviar Black too good to be true for a reason....

Matthew Marlowe, Amazon

  • Summary: 2TB capacity, large cache, high performance, for under $200...actually almost $150 these days? Hard to believe. I gave it a try and bought 2 of them. They seemed good for 2-3 months, then I started to get SMART monitoring errors...hrm, ok well, they were in a s/w raid1 array and western digital claims the drives should not be placed in any raid configuration. OK - reconfigure the drives to run as single units and follow best practices/etc. Drive 1 dies a few weeks later.

I expect better from a Caviar Black

  • Summary: I ponied up for the more expensive drive in WD's line thinking it would be money well spent, and I'm not convinced it was worth it. My Mac Pro has seemed very slow and buggy ever since installing this drive (one of three drives I have installed). The drive actually crashed a week after installing it. A reformat fixed it, but I had to reinstall everything which set me back a decent amount of time. I have it dedicated as a drive just for photos, no applications or OS.
