5 out of 5 eggsGreat performance mechanical drives

Pros: Performance
Reliability
Quiet

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I have used these drives in performance builds for a long time they work great in raid arrays or as a single drive. When i have a build build that requires large storage but still needs the extra speed I use the Black drives, If speed is not needed I use the blue drives, so far for the last 5 years i have not had one fail yet in any build! I have found these to be better performers than other brands and the most reliable.

4 out of 5 eggsGood HDD

Pros: It is quiet. Quiet enough I ordered its brother today, the WD1003FZEX. It's fast considering its an HDD. It still carries a five year warranty.

Cons: It lasted 3 years, six months and two days before total failure. Obviously that's not a deal breaker for me, but I'd have preferred twice the life if not more.

Other Thoughts: Too bad this model was discontinued, driving the retail price so high.

5 out of 5 eggsWD is Tops.

Pros: Fast Load times. Reads faster than you would think by looking at numbers and benchmarks, which are always best case scenario anyway, and can deliver SSD near speed when loading games.
Ok. Write times.

Cons: I only put this in the con because it does write slower then the WD Blue 1TB. Almost by 50-60 MB/s with the same file sometimes. Maybe not the best drive for content creation.
And yes, they can get loud depending on the application.

Other Thoughts: Not sure how they do it but Win 7 managed to load up in less than 30 seconds.

3 out of 5 eggsFailed too early IMO

Pros: First, the drive didn't fail catastrophically, but rather started kicking off chkdsk errors in Windows then failed a DLGDIAG Quicktest. So I quickly decommissioned the drive before any data could be corrupted and will move the data once the RMA unit arrives. Secondly, I will give WD credit that the RMA process was easy for a drive I bought more than three years ago, never bothered to register, don't have a receipt, etc., and for that I raised my review from 2 to 3 eggs. Lastly, it does come with a 5 year warranty.

Cons: I am torn on the fact that a Caviar Black failed so soon. I have a sneaky feeling I would have gotten similar life out of the cheaper Blue drives, which I have never bought. But then again, the Blues only come with a two-year warranty. Plus I have a sneaky feeling the RMA unit will not come with a fresh new 5 year warranty. But bottomline, I buy the Black series to avoid this situation period. And it was not like I deployed it in a server or some other harsh environment, just my desktop PC.

Other Thoughts: I am also nervous about receiving an RMA replacement via the mail. I have stopped buying HDDs online. My experience with shipping is that HDDs just aren't built for it.

5 out of 5 eggsStill running strong after 1+ year

Pros: Good price, decent sized HDD, runs flawlessly.

Cons: The first arrived dead. Fortunately, Newegg's service was great, and they printed a return label for me. I was really afraid that the nw drive would also not survive as it was travelling on its own, but it was so well-packed that I shouldn't have worried. Great stuff.
