This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: This is a follow-up to my previous review (Won't Format). Received replacement drive today. Installed and formatted. The "EGG" did a great job handling the RMA and I am a happy camper. Thanks for the service Newegg!

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Works as expected with zero issues, got my old system up and running after a bad PSU helped finish my old WD Black drive off.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: This is the second 1TB Black drive I've owned, the first was killed by a faulty power connector and finally done in by the failed PSU. Hopefully this one will last a while with the other problems being cured. Newegg got it to me fast and was well packaged in a bubble wrap case surrounded with air pillows. Best packaging I've seen from you yet, thanks for protecting my order from the Ace Ventura shipping company!

5 out of 5 eggsWD Black Series 1TB HD

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: It downloads like crazy fast on a six year old duo core cpu. Never a problem from day one. I have a new haswell 5820 k and gigabyte SOC champion board coming. So, we'll see how much better that makes things.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Expensive for a HD, but well worth the money if you love to game. My boot times have increased dramatically as well.

1 out of 5 eggsWD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: I have used WD drives in many builds over the years and this is the first one that has apparently failed. At the moment, there are no pro's

Cons: Does not want to format. used the WD tools with no luck will have to RMA and hope for the best!

Other Thoughts: This minor problem in no way will cause me to change to another drive. the 1st time in more than 10yrs. is no enough to "Rattle" my confidence in WD. Great drives, now I'll find out about customer service!

2 out of 5 eggsHard Drive Failure after 5 Months

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Very large and affordable hard drive. No trouble installing or setting it up.

Cons: Hard drive failed in 5 months. Purchased in early Nov and it died in early April.

Other Thoughts: I went into this knowing that cheaper HD tend to fail faster, but I bought Western Digital over other companies because they were rated at a lower failure rate. Judging from the other reviews, perhaps I was unlucky.

1 out of 5 eggsDied in just a few hours

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Price, storage and the supposed reliability of the WD Black line of drives

Cons: Lack of reliability.

Other Thoughts: With in a few hours of installation this 1 GB drive died. For a highly reliable drive, my experience is contra to that. So its making its way back to WD for replacement.
