Much Slower then my previous generation WD6000HLHX, more expensive.

Ronald Y., Newegg
8 March 2016
  • Summary: - Drive calls itself a WDC Raptor, WDC traditionally stands for Western Digital Caviar, the cheapest model line and slowest (They use to beat green out from the no longer made 7200rpm models). I think its a purposefully scaled down version that's poorly labeled.
  • Pros: They never break, at least not for me. Owned every generation of Raptors since they first came out, up to this model, keep them running 24/7. Recently took a drill and cutting tools to my old 36GB Raptor to extract the Super-Magnets, the ultimate dropped screw finder. Both really fast and really ...
  • Cons: Didn't realize this "improved" model came out until after I bought it, every benchmark test on CrystalDiskMark shows the older as faster, some by a slim margin, most like 20-30%. Also Drive Reports 16MB Cache, not 64, and unlike the older one (with 32mb cache) some programs can't retrieve cache r...

Fast and reliable.

  • Summary: I would buy this again perhaps, on the other hand one year from now I may decide to buy one of the high end PCI Experess internal SSDs if people keep being happy about them.
  • Pros: Lasted for 3 years. Doesn't look like much but it was non-stop use in bad conditions (temperature, dust). Gave ample warning for about 1 week before dying. Gave me enough time to order a new HDD, make sure all my data is backed up and make a Windows 10 installation USB flash drive. Once it died I...
  • Cons: Lasted for 3 years only. I was hoping for more but I can't really complain.

Works great

  • Summary: -I got this puppy when it was on sale for $79.99. It's over $200 now. Are you kidding????????? SSD prices have gotten much lower than this! -Just get an SSD. If you're buying at this price, there's something really wrong with you.
  • Pros: -10k RPM, what can you say? -Fast! -Still working after more than 3 years.
  • Cons: -It's not an SSD -It's hecka not as fast as an SSD (probably 1/4th the speed)

Great drive if you don't want to spend money on a SSD

  • Pros: Fast, reliable and a decent amount of space
  • Cons: I ordered this drive less than a week ago for $290.00 and now it's down to $239.00. That is very frustrating newegg

Great, great, great drive!!!

Mark D., Newegg

  • Pros: Oh my gosh, I dunno what to say, other than this drive is seriously one of the best non Solid State drives I have ever owned. Western Digital makes seriously superior drives, and I implore you to buy from them in the future.
  • Cons: None, great drive WD!

User Review

Jeremy M., Newegg
9 September 2015
  • Summary: Honestly I would prefer a Hybrid or a SSD drive over this, after i bought a hybrid, i noticed a HUGE diff. in many applications, specs, speeds, etc as well. You can pretty much have the best of both worlds with one.
  • Pros: It stays cool. Decent Space.
  • Cons: Not as fast as it states, 10k rpm not true, at the fastest it maxes at 7200, very noisy, second one within a years time i had to replace. Kinda expensive for what it is..

Very Cooperative

Edwin J., Newegg
22 May 2015
  • Pros: Very cooperative staff. I made a mistake, ordered the wrong device, and had to decline it to send it back to California for a refund. They were very responsive through email and worked with me. They even waived the restocking fee and shipping cost. Will definitely use them again.
  • Cons: N/A
