Summary: Works great for media storage. I have a 512 GB SSD but do a lot of video editing. This thing is fast and performed a full format without issue. I recommend anyone who buys any spinning drive to do a full format otherwise you won't know about any lurking issues.

Summary: It's "LOUD", I recently upgraded my WD 1 TB that was originally on my iMac 2009 with this WD 3 TB Black and the most noticeable is the loud noise it makes when you are accessing the hard drive. I wish it was quiet like the one I had in computer to begin with.
Summary: Bought this drive for use as backup to my 3TB drive in my gaming rig. Both are faster, quiet and run relatively cooler than the Seagate 1TB drives I had when I built my system. Works fine. Satisfied with purchase.
Summary: Simply put it works, performs well and does what I need it to. The read/write speeds in combination with my SSD are slightly faster than with my old hard drives, regardless though it's definitely worth picking up for a mass data storage solution.
