Summary: Pros: Decently fast, easy to set up, and affordable. Cons: Nothing If you can pick this up for a decent price, I recommend it. I have both a 500gb and a 2tb WD black and both have worked well for nearly 2 years now.
Summary: This has to be one of the best non-ssd drives on the market today. I use mine to back up another WD drive and it has worked flawlessly taking a it of bit of abuse along the way. The warranty id amazing in these days of one year warranties as it has a 5 year warranty. It is rock solid.
Summary: Had one of these for about a year and half now, it's western digital - fast and reliable. It's been in and out of more than one computer too. It came with a 5 year warrenty, I got my at eBay though so unsure whether that will be the same if you purchase from amazon, I think so though.
Summary: I use Western Digital Black drives almost exclusively. I've been using them for over fifteen years. The biggest selling point is that they come with a 5 year manufacturer's warranty. Also they spin at 7200 rpm and have large caches.
Summary: This is an excellent & fast hard drive. I had no trouble setting up this hard drive for use, but no utilities came with it. I used software utilities from a recently bought external USB Western Digital 2TB hard drive, that were resident on the hard drive itself.
Summary: I was pleased that my trust in WD Black drives was confirmed when all went well with this 500GB. All is fine. I tried RAID-1 but my other 500GB was no-go. Time to RMA that one, also an older WD Black. 5 Years Warranty. Can't beat it. Still great drives.
