5 out of 5 eggsTop Performance and Reliability

Pros: I bought three of these and have had no trouble with any of them. Massive storage and reliable performance. Western Digital is a brand I trust. I go with "Black" for the performance. I built two PCs and upgraded a third with these drives and they have been rock solid.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: All three of these drives have performed exceptionally for the past three years with no issues whatsoever. I couldn't hope for anything better. I will continue to stick with Western Digital as long as they keep this up.

5 out of 5 eggsGood drives

Pros: High performance drives
Reliable
High capacity

Cons: Not good in NAS boxes or where you will have two of them in close proximity of each other.

Other Thoughts: They are good drives, but due to the high RPM's they tend to create a decent vibration. I don't fault the HD's, it's more a situation issue. i.e. don't put them close together in a NAS box or computer on top of each other.

4 out of 5 eggsBought in '09

Pros: Pretty solid drive, been in a computer since early 09. Bought two fo them for two different systems.

Cons: One has began to throw errors, built new rig

Other Thoughts: Honestly if I get 4 years out of a part the way I use it, and it dies gracefully (with warning) Then I have no major complaints. Got all data I needed off and as far as I know would work if I turned on old computer anyway.

5 out of 5 eggsBEST HARD DRIVE EVER

Pros: SUPERIOR QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP AND WARRANTY

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I bought five of these when they were on sale under a hundred bucks five years ago and it was the best decision I ever made. The evidence is so obvious when you look at this products new egg ratings. I wish Western Digital would continue to manufacture all future products with the same devotion.

1 out of 5 eggsDied 3 months later

Pros: Ran fast enough

Cons: Died after 3 months normal use

Other Thoughts: This was shipped to me as a replacement for an older 750GB Caviar Black that had died after several years of usage. This one died after only 3 months. Thank goodness for RAID 10!

1 out of 5 eggsLook elsewhere

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Died about a year after purchasing it.

Other Thoughts: This hard drive took a downward turn after simply copying/pasting photos from an SD card onto it. It froze up and every time I tried to start my computer, it needed to run Check Disk. Every single time. There's nothing wrong with the files, as I copied/pasted them perfectly fine onto my OS drive (it's solid state though). It's my first and last Western Digital drive. The Seagate I had before was great. I bought this when I built a new computer. It had great reviews, but I'll be looking at other brands to replace it.
