5 out of 5 eggsEvery penny

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

Pros: everything as advertised. excellent performance even under heavy load. great read and write speeds

Cons: It wasn't free.

Other Thoughts: I took my chances on a green series drive and that didnt pay off well, second time i invested in this black series drive. never looked back. black series has a great reputation for being excellent in every advertised aspect. 10/10 would buy again if needed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HD

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

Pros: Used Acronis supplied by WD was very easy process to get it installed and running. Has not had a hiccup since I installed it.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I did here a little, very little "hard drive" noise the first and second day, now don't hear a peep from the hard drive.

5 out of 5 eggsYes get it. I think it is great

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

Pros: Great warranty on the black series drives
I get great read and write speeds compared to my older drives.

Cons: A little louder than I am used to, but I was running this build with only an SSD so it could just be me.
Did not come with mounting hardware or...anything
Did not mount very easily in my CM elite 110 case. But this has more to do with the case than the drive. Sorry Cooler Master.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this drive but I don't know if that means much since I have not had to test the warranty which is why I bought it. If you trust hard drives more than warranties then get a much bigger drive for the same price.

5 out of 5 eggslovin it

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

Pros: Pretty fast. I have mine running in my SATA Express port to see if it would do it justice. Maps in advanced warfare are loading in literally 5 seconds paired with an i5 and a gtx 960. bootup from windows logo to fully loaded desktop is around 32 seconds *thats including windows services that are set to startup in auto delayed mode*

Cons: none really. makes some noise of course but not as loud as my old hitachi 1tb sata 3 7200rpm. spinners make noise under load lol if yours doesnt make noise i would be concerned.

Other Thoughts: its really a good value for what i paid which was around $70usd. having it hooked up to a sata express 10gbps port just makes it snappy as heck.

5 out of 5 eggsDuh

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 bought probably 30 of these in the past 2 years. They are awesome, positively the best drive you can get.

Yes, you will get some that are DOA. Sorry, tough, that is just how hard drives are. They are not IF they die, it is WHEN they die. You get a few duds, get over it.

Over all, awesome performance. I never get any other kind of HDD other than these.

Cons: 2/20 were DOA
10% - not bad

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 4 months of regular use

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

Pros: Thought it was going to live up to its reputation.

Cons: Turned on the PC today and the drive is no longer recognized by the BIOS, same result when testing with two other PCs as well whether connected by SATA directly or with a SATA to USB connector. Drive sounds like it still receives power and spins normally.

Other Thoughts: I would NOT recommend this drive and will be discouraged from purchasing this model or anything from this family of drives again (WD Black Series) based on this experience. The hard drive passed an extended DST using gSmartControl before Windows 7 was installed, and there was no warning or indication of failure. This PC has only been in use for less than 4 months!

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

Pros: Worked well and didn't seem to have any hiccups

Cons: In a little over a week of using it it seems to have died. I sadly had moved all my data over to this HDD because I wouldn't be able to use my other PC for a few weeks and was planning on backing up once got home, a mistake. I will edit this review if it miraculously comes back to life or anything else happens. Not as good day for me.

5 out of 5 eggsWD Harddrive

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

Pros: My dads pc was getting 56mbs on an old 80g HD and I swapped this to help performance. He now gets 186mbs with a 3.2 duel processor running XP. He's not a heavy user but streaming video was better due to r/w access.

Cons: Not as fast as a SSD but still fast and wish I would have tested on my gaming pc to see what it would have peaked at.
