4 out of 5 eggsThat thing is fast!

Pros: -Furiously fast
-Quiet
-5 years warranty

Cons: -Died after 3 1/2 years (mechanical failure)

Other Thoughts: Even though it died after a few years (bad luck, I suppose), the 5 years warranty covers it no problem.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very fast
Great company, so hoping it will be reliable
Got mine for a great price

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Chose to buy this instead of a SSD.
The long term reliability and much larger capacity of this HD outweighed the speed advantage of a SSD for me.

1 out of 5 eggsWD has not improved!

Pros: None

Cons: I never had any luck with WD products. They never lasted, and always had short life spans. I thought all that changed, and WD improved over the years. Boy was I wrong! I purchased this Velocraptor on 11/09/2012 from Newegg for the speed and the long 5 year warranty. This hard drive took a dump within the first year after install. Windows 8 Pro did all the installing, and it work fine for about 6 months. Then it found bad sectors. I managed to repair the bad sectors, but the drive never performed flawlessly since. Just last week the drive took its final stand and died. I have built many systems, and only WD products die, prematurely. This is the last straw. I will never ever ever buy another WD hard drive again. They simple don't last. The warranty on this particular model is 5 years. It didn't even see 2 years. I will RMA the hard drive, but going forward it's Seagate, Samsung, or Toshiba for me. To bad MAXTOR isn't still around. They made some of the most durable HD out there in my opinion. Real workhorses, never died. Outlasted my computer.

Other Thoughts: They don't last. They die fast. Get Seagate or Samsung.

5 out of 5 eggsExtremely Good Drive

Pros: I've had this drive for a year and a half now and I've beat the absolute you know what out of it. Multiple OS installs, corrupt OS installs, Windows 8, constant formatting, and taxing usage has not done anything to this drive. It still runs like a charm and at the same as when I bought it.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: 10K speeds make this a great workstation and gaming drive. That's what I've been using it for the past 1 1/2 years and it's been great.

3 out of 5 eggsDied after 3 years of use

Pros: Great when it works. Perfect for RAIDing on a file server.

Cons: Seagate always seems to outlast Western Digital in Hard Drive life. Like other WD drives, this one did not last as long as it could have.

5 out of 5 eggsSmoken Hot

Pros: This drive is one of the best mechanical drives on the planet. I've had for over a 2 yrs now and never had a seconds trouble out of it. Speed of a SSD

Cons: Very Fast Very reliable Not too hard on your pocket.At the time I am writing this it looks like WD has stopped making this drive and gone to a 500GB which would mean anyone with one of these drives that wants to upgrade to RAID would have to buy two drives.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, and stable

Pros: - Fast
- High Capacity
- Low Noise

Cons: - Got warm, but welcome to fast moving parts

Other Thoughts: I bought an SSD shortly before purchasing this drive. I was amazed at how similar the speeds were. The prices were about the same and this drive had over 4 times the capacity of the SSD. It's a fantastic piece of hardware if you don't want to take the plunge into the world of SSDs.
