Possible alternative for those in need for extra storage...

Denis Vukosav, Amazon
27 September 2013
  • Summary: 4TB hard drives are a welcome option for people in need for storage for all media files or similar. While in the market for some time as external HDD, the 7200 RPM options finally are becoming more available. Western Digital skipped the 3TB capacity entirely in their high-performance 3.5" 7200 RPM HDD family, jumping from 2TB straight to 4TB in their Black line.

For the gamers.

Nick Comer, Amazon
21 September 2014
  • Summary: I wanted this hard drive for my gaming rig as Western Digital advertises it as their hard drive for gamers. I was concerned by all the reviews stating that it arrives in minimal packaging, i did not have this problem and it works fine. I now use a SSD for my operating system and have all my Steam games downloaded to this hard drive. Great product.

Reasonable storage solution

  • Summary: Two partitions, two huge drives for saving files. Install, partition, leave in. Simple. Access speeds seem respectable as transfer speeds are always over the 100mb/s.

Fast and Reliable

Rambling Syd, Amazon
12 August 2014
  • Summary: This is my third 4tb WD Black and they've all been perfectly packed by Amazon - factory sealed with dessicant gel in a metalised bag, supported by plastic clam shells inside a sealed box placed inside a large packing box containing brown paper. All have worked perfectly showing no faults on any diagnostic software and all continue to work well.

Damaged, poor packaging

Apoth Black, Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: 1 star, arrived damaged in the most appalling packaging (placed at the bottom of a cardboard box three times the size.. With paper on top???) Sent it back As for performance i have no idea, as it DID NOT WORK Shame really as it would have been great with my new build. WD drives are also some of the best in the market.

Expensive, but worth it

Horice, Amazon

  • Summary: The drive, is very quick, a lot quicker than the Green equivalent. It costs more, but if you use your computer a lot, it'll save you many hours (possibly even days, who knows) over the course of it's life. The only problem I have, is the packaging it came in (what packaging, would possibly be a better description, it just came wrapped in some bubblewrap), but as I'm reviewing the drive, not the box, I'll still give it 5 stars.

Occasionally too loud, but otherwise fine

Vedran Sego, Amazon
28 April 2014
  • Summary: Obviously, it will take me a few years to see if the disk lives up to its guarantee promise. However, after using it for about 3 months, I am happy with the performance, with the only complaint being a bit of a noise from time to time (I'm using Linux, btw). I would recommend it to anyone who is not sensitive about the noise, and to those who are, I'd advise to try to deal with the noise.
