Probably the last mechanical hard drive I'll ever own
9 October 2013
Summary: SSD's have dominated the performance segment of the storage market for a while now, and I figure it's only a couple years until 1TB SSD's become very affordable. I plan on retiring this drive to an enclosure soon, but for their time, the WD Black drives were the best option to home enthusiasts...
Summary: Two terabytes is a huge drive and that makes for a fast drive too, add in a huge 64mb cache and twin processors you get an phenomenal drive for a desktop computer. I've used WD Black drives for years and they are great performers but they aren't as reliable as the 5 year warranty leads you to...
Summary: Works as I expected - but takes a while to wake up from sleeping. That could be because it is 2TB, or because it is the Green, low power, version. It works though and has been able to hold my media library. It is a great solution and I have been happy with it.
Summary: I ordered two of the 2 TB drives and am running them in a mirrored configuration. They work great but one or both of the drives is occasionally extremely loud compared to the previous 1 TB Hitachi drives I was using.
Summary: The WD Black Caviar 2TB hard-drive came nicely packaged as expected. It was easy as could be to install for having never installed or replaced a hard-drive before. For anyone who is not so computer savvy, Western Digital even provides on line instructions, tutorials, and videos to guide you through...
Summary: I've had this drive for about a month now. I am using it as part of an external drive array. Happy to report that this drive has lived up to expectations. It is quiet and my concerns about overheating in the drive enclosure have been proven wrong. I just wished the price was lower :(
Summary: I had built a new PC about 8 month's ago and I had this drive as a storage drive along side of a 1TD drive by Western Digital. I have thousands of digital photos and web sites that I need room to get them backed up on.
Summary: After a lot of research, I bought this HD to plug into the internal bottom dock of my Mac G-5 dual 2.0. Seemed like a good choice considering price and features. Installation was easy. Operates as expected. Seems to be fast. You can hear it working sometimes, but just barely.
Summary: When I upgraded to Windows 7, I changed my computer's hard drive to this. It has performed well so far (2 months). My only concern is that while not too loud, I can hear when this drive is running. The old drive didn't make any sound.
