5 out of 5 eggsOld Reliable

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

Pros: Reliable & Great Value for the price.

Cons: Absolutely None

Other Thoughts: Been using the black drives since they were released and believe all are actually still working. Using an SSD this go around and it will just be a storage drive. I know I should have got one of their other flavors geared toward that but it was hard not to buy a black edition with that kind of track record.

4 out of 5 eggsShould be good but DOA.

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

Pros: Reliable and fast for an HDD.

Cons: DOA.

Other Thoughts: I've been using one of those drives since 2012 for my previous PC. It's reliable and relatively decent. A new PC got built a few days ago, bought one more of this and after I hooked it into my PC, the PC got super slow(entering Windows 8 UEFI Installer took 15 minutes) and BIOS wouldn't recognize the drive. Tested on my old PC, didn't work either. So I'm assuming it's DOA. I'm doing RMA right now and I believe I just got unlucky, or FedEx somehow broke it :( 4 star just because I know faulty units exist, but it doesn't mean this product is bad.

1 out of 5 eggs1Tb WD7200 64MB 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: none

Cons: this is the second one that has been DOA well almost got it to load once and now nothing. I have had 3 others all good but lately nothing good to say about WD Black. It is to be top of the line not any more. Now it freezes at 12% will not go pass it and system will not see it either. Looking to change hard drive on next build next year. Hope to get RAM and get this machine running.

Other Thoughts: WD what has happen to you quality control?? One okay but 2 in a row not good at all.

5 out of 5 eggsWD Black 1 TB

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

Pros: Fast
Lots of space
Trusted Company
5 Year Warranty

Cons: Some gigs are always taken to make the drive useable, cant avoid that =\

Other Thoughts: I bought this because it is WD and I trust this company considering many many reviews and the 5-Year warranty. I wish that they didn't have to take the few gigs to make the drive usable, but the drive works and thats whats important.

5 out of 5 eggsO.O.B.

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

Pros: If you factor in the price and the amount of warranty and lastly the performance you get, it's hard to not recommend this disk drive. Clearly it's no SSD, but for an HDD it sure moves fast for the price. It worked right out of the box, passed all disk diagnostics.

Cons: No cons on my end

Other Thoughts: It seems even snappier than my older generation SATA 3.00 Gb that I have had for nearly 4 years now and it still performs as fast as when I first got it. Granted it is starting to sound like it's grinding bearings but not as bad as if it were clearly failing. One piece of advice I can give you for free is that ALWAYS run disk diagnostics before installing the drive, and after installing the drive. Run the Quick tests and the Extended test. YES it is time consuming but it will save you the trouble of complaining that it decided to die on you with no warning. I've had almost no problems with WD drives for a while now. I like the Black Edition drives and I will keep sticking to em until SSD's are within my budget range, plus SSD's to me are more of a luxury, than a necessity, as I don't make a living editing video and what not.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems so far

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

Pros: -Quiet
-Works

Cons: Nothing comes to mind

Other Thoughts: After a PSU failure that caused two of my WD Blue drives to fail, I decided I might as well get these since I was buying new drives anyway, and I'm glad I did. They work wonderfully.
