The absolute best hard drives out there!
7 December 2013
Summary: I really trust the Western Digital "Black" series of hard drives. I have never had a problem with any of them and I own many. They go way beyond the warranty period and are reliable & fast. I wouldn't own any other brand of hard drives!
Summary: Western Digital never fails to impress and neither did this drive. Install with little effort, first time going with a 2T hd. My Windows 8 have no problems what so ever. I highly recommend any of the Western Digital Caviar Black Series, it's built with quality and built to last.
Summary: I bought 2 of these from amazon themselves, I have them on 2 machines and are working great. But, here is what i don't understand. i bought them from amazon for $85 a piece, and now each costs over $250. This is just a year ago and its four times the price. Looks to me people are being taken for a ride. This is bad business model. Hardware price and cost of manufacturing keeps going down due to technological improvements and delivery system.
Summary: This is a magnificent drive, fit for almost all your needs. Use it as your Primary Data drive, and I doubt you will need to buy another for years. Speedy and practical, this is the drive to buy until Solid State becomes more developed technology.
Summary: I buy eight Hard disk for one of my HP servers. They work fine, I have installed and the servers is ni production. I recomend this hard disk and the seller. The package was very protective for the HDD.
Summary: When I need a large 2TB drive, this is one of my top choices. Performance is good, and I've never had a failure. The data you put on a drive is FAR more valuable than the cost of a drive, so why buy cheap drives? I always buy higher end drives not only for their improved performance, but really, for their improved reliability. Recently Seagate began to offer a competitive 2TB unit, I've purchased both models and so far can't say one is better than the other.
Summary: Great quality, I used to trust only in seagate for HDD's, but since the late seagate mistakes for the 7200.11, and even thought I own a 7200.11 disk and still is working perfect... I decided to go with WD for a upgrade and seems like I did the right choice. My 2TB WD CB 7200rpm seems perfect. 1000% recommended.
Summary: I was a little unsure as to buying this raw HD from Amazon because of earlier posts I read on sloppy packaging for shipping and drives bouncing around the inside of shipping boxes. I am happy to report that my drive was boxed with molded spacers to fit the HD snugly in it's package. If it's a regional thing, I'm here in NYC on the east coast. So any shipping fears I had went unrealized. I installed the drive in my Mac Pro. Installation was a breeze.
