Western Digital WD Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive - OEM

ICON Loading...
  • newegg Dual Actuator Technology The WD Caviar Black (2 TB and 1.5 TB models only) features a head positioning system with two actuators to improve positional accuracy over the data track(s). The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses a piezoelectric motor to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy.
  • newegg StableTrac The motor shaft is secured at both ends to reduce system-induced vibration and stabilize platters for accurate tracking, during read and write operations. (2 TB and 1.5 TB models only)
  • newegg NoTouch Ramp Load Technology The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media, as well as better drive protection in transit.
  • newegg High Performance Electronics Architecture The electronics architecture of WD Caviar Black employs dual processor - twice the processing power, and up to 64 MB colossal cache to maximize performance.
  • newegg IntelliSeek Technology WD’s IntelliSeek technology proactively calculates an optimum seek speed to eliminate hasty movement of the actuator, resulting in lower power consumption, noise and vibration.
  • newegg SATA 6 Gb/s Interface SATA 6 Gb/s (SATA Revision 3.0) provides twice the bus bandwidth of SATA 3Gb/s (SATA II) along with enhancements including a new Native Command Queuing (NCQ) and improved power management capabilities. SATA 6 Gb/s uses the same connector as SATA 3 Gb/s and is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000 and Mac OS X.

Pros: This was a decent sized hard drive for the price at the time that I bought it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great so far

Pros: Very easy to install (assuming you have the correct case and cables). This took the place of a much slower (and older) WD 500G external drive. Formatted MBR, no issues. Tempted to spend less money on other brands, but have always had good experiences with WD. Glad I spent the extra $50.

Cons: No cables included and no install instructions. Must have upgrade knowledge prior to install or be willing to research the internet for directions.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective.

Pros: None to speak of as I haven't even used it yet.

Cons: Was using my system with just an ssd, got around to installing the hdd, and it powers on but only makes obnoxious whirring and buzzing sounds and is not recognized by the bios or windows at all.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Nick,
There are many variables that could amount to a drive emitting unusual sounds when powered on. To test our drives health, we have our Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows (WinDLG) utility, and Mac users can of course use Disk Utility and First Aid. For information on how to use the WinDLG utility, please view the information provided by the following link.

1 out of 5 eggsWD 2TB Black

Pros: Hard to give this any input. Drive is DOA.

Cons: I know there is a certain amount of failed drives right out of the box but this is my first. I have always had good luck with WD and will continue to use them.
Just let down on this purchase.
