Reliable Hard Drive

Ron Zellmer, Amazon

  • Summary: Great hard drive for the money. I would recommend it to everyone. I use it for an external drive with a 3.0 USB hub.

Probably the last mechanical hard drive I'll ever own

RampagingRook, Amazon

  • 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 looking for speed and capacity.

Big, fast, but unreliable for a 5yr warranty.

Dave Larkin, Amazon
9 May 2013
  • 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 believe. Just the two 2TB drives I've run one is starting to fail critically after two years.

Lots of space - no frills

Rodney L. Schulz Jr., Amazon
20 December 2012
  • 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. I do wish that the warranty was longer though. 1 year just isn't quite enough that I have warm fuzzies with this drive.

Caviar of Caviots

Michael B. Studer, Amazon
16 September 2010
  • 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 the process, should you need assistance. I literally removed the old hard-drive and plugged in the new one...and Waaa Laaa.
