  • newegg Dual Actuator Technology The WD Caviar Black (2 TB and 1.5 TB models only) features a head positioning system with two actuators to improve positional accuracy over the data track(s). The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses a piezoelectric motor to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy.
  • newegg StableTrac The motor shaft is secured at both ends to reduce system-induced vibration and stabilize platters for accurate tracking, during read and write operations. (2 TB and 1.5 TB models only)
  • newegg NoTouch Ramp Load Technology The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media, as well as better drive protection in transit.
  • newegg High Performance Electronics Architecture The electronics architecture of WD Caviar Black employs dual processor - twice the processing power, and up to 64 MB colossal cache to maximize performance.
  • newegg IntelliSeek Technology WD’s IntelliSeek technology proactively calculates an optimum seek speed to eliminate hasty movement of the actuator, resulting in lower power consumption, noise and vibration.
  • newegg SATA 6 Gb/s Interface SATA 6 Gb/s (SATA Revision 3.0) provides twice the bus bandwidth of SATA 3Gb/s (SATA II) along with enhancements including a new Native Command Queuing (NCQ) and improved power management capabilities. SATA 6 Gb/s uses the same connector as SATA 3 Gb/s and is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000 and Mac OS X.

1 out of 5 eggsBad QA... WD Digital is Coasting on Their Past Reputation

Pros: Their past reputation for Quality

Cons: Bought a bad one. Paid $11 to return it. They send anotherone with bad SMART status. Speedfan test says it is bad. Western Digital's own test utility gives it a passing test.... but their own read of the smart data says 3 of the measures are bad enough to return it under warranty.

I have always bought WD Black series to pay extra for quality. They are just not worth it any more.

This is my last WD drive.

Other Thoughts: You would think they would have at least one line of quality drives which they would test before shipping. They can charge a premium.... but now they charge a premium and deliver -------.

They have no decent SSD products. Seems like someone is just sucking cash out of the company and letter go to pot.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Mule for your SSD =)

Pros: Very good Performance/Capacity-to-Price ratio. Hasn't skipped a beat in my 2.5+ years of ownership with my demanding video editing workload of 100's of GB of raw video footage and heavy gaming usage (numerous 40-60GB games such as those in the Battlefield series, Titanfall, and MMORPG's).

That 64MB cache makes load times and transfers much smoother and consistent than other mechanical drives I've used.

Cons: Experiencing SSD's has ruined my tastes for speed, so if you're like me, you'll still want an SSD to helm your OS and a few flagship games. This drive will pick up the storage slack wonderfully though ("wonderfully" compared to lesser mechanical hard drives).

Other Thoughts: I'll likely be getting another drive in this series for additional storage because I've enjoyed it's reliability so much.

5 out of 5 eggsWestern Digital Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM

Pros: Pretty fast for a 7200 drive. Used as a multimedia drive (downloads, videos, music and photos).

Cons: Does slow down sometimes. Reads only 1.8TB.

Other Thoughts: Purchased in May 2011 and still going strong.

2 out of 5 eggsDied 2yrs 4mo

Pros: Was pretty quick when it worked.

Cons: Has always been really noisy.

Died just after 2 years. Had about 1100mb loaded on there from video, music, games, family photos etc. All gone. Got pretty noisy, then slow then dead all in one day. Tried to recover what I could. No luck. :(

Other Thoughts: I've always been pretty happy with WD but I have a Hitachi 1tb I bought for cheap 7 years ago in the same system and it works fine to this day. Been reading a lot how WD is slipping. Time to move on I guess. Sad.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Fast. Works. Resurrected it somehow. Removed it from the enclosure and plugged it directly into my Mac Pro. Might have been the enclosure it was in. Works fine now. Disregard previous review.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I would suggest Newegg allow posters to edit their posts...

1 out of 5 eggsDied at 1.5 years

Pros: Fast; other one I bought works fine.

Cons: Bought two in November 2013. One just died, May, 2015. Light use (backup).

Other Thoughts: I know all HHDs/manufacturers have a certain number of failures. Had a Seagate die young 10 years ago. So this does not condemn WD. But it does rankle, especially when it is a medium capacity, supposedly higher-level HD like this.

4 out of 5 eggsVery solid drive

Pros: Worked great, no problems installing or using drive. Quite fast with great response times and data speeds. Never had any issues with heat or noise. (But then again my computer was somewhat noisy to begin with so this drive might've gotten lost in the background noise)

Cons: Died after 2 years of faithful service. (computer was almost never off) WD promptly RMA'ed me a replacement.

Other Thoughts: I suspect the drive never spins down which I'm sure increases power consumption and wear and tear on the drive.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable, fast, 5year warranty

Cons: none

1 out of 5 eggsAnd its dying

Pros: Capacity

Cons: Anytime I wanted to access the drive I had to wait for it to "wake up."

The data on the drive has become corrupted without warning after about a year and a half of usage.

Other Thoughts: This drive has been overall pretty disappointing.

1 out of 5 eggsDead

Pros: It worked for a while.

Cons: It died, caused a crcdisk.sys error twice after re-installing windows. I went back to a 5 year old HD that worked perfectly on my system. Ridiculous.
