5 out of 5 eggsGreat Upgrade for PS4 Hard Drive

Pros: Quiet, cool, plenty of storage. When I first got my PS3 systems I upgraded to the largest drives available at the time (Western Digital 740GB drives) but always wanted more space. After hooking up my PS4, installing and downloading some games, and capturing and uploading some video clips I noticed I'd used quite a bit of space...which was rather troubling since I'd only had it for a week or so. I knew I'd want to upgrade the hard drive but hadn't really looked into what was available...and then I received an invitation to review this hard drive. Excellent timing!

The drive is the perfect height (9.5mm). It takes a little wiggling to get the side mount screws attached but once installed the drive is very quiet and cool. System seems to boot up faster and load games faster. It was a very simple installation (slide the top panel of the PS4 to the left, take out a top screw and then 4 side screws)

Cons: As with any hard drive you won't actually get 1TB of useable space. The manufacturer calculates a mb as 1,000kb and Operating Systems calculate a mb as 1,024kb. All hard drive sizes can be calculated with a fair amount of accuracy by simply multiplying the advertised size by 0.931. which should give you the approximate useable size.

Other Thoughts: Still, 931GB of space in your brand new PS4 (or even your somewhat older but still awesome PS3) is impressive and means your PS4 has plenty of storage for all of those games that are going to be released in coming years. I can't really judge the hard drive that comes standard in the PS4...but it seems pretty junky and is DEFINITELY loud. My wife commented on how noisy the PS4 was when we started Knack together. After replacing the hard drive she was quite pleased and again commented, this time on how quiet the system was.

I'm sure this hard drive would work fine in other applications but it seems like other reviewers have those covered. I was quite excited to crack open a practically brand new piece of gaming hardware and go poking around inside of it with a screwdriver. Don't be afraid! Buy this drive and upgrade that Playstation 4!

5 out of 5 eggsGood for 13" MacBook Pro

Pros: Value

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Wife's 13" MacBook Pro had a HDD failure. Bought this as a replacement for the 500GB original. Replacement was easy and Time Machine took care of the rest. Advice to others: Setup and use Time Machine...makes HDD failures a non-issue.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 2.5" AV Drive

Pros: Large Capacity, 2.5" Form Factor, Quiet, Low Power, Low Heat

Cons: Pricey compared to a 3.5" drive with the same or better performance

Other Thoughts: I have never been particularly loyal to a certain brand of disk drives. For a while I was buying nothing but IBM Deskstars until they started suffering from the famous “click of death” (Google it). I moved on to Seagate, Hitachi, Seagate, and eventually Western Digital. At this moment (subject to change) I have five 1TB WD-10xxx drives running in various PCs around the house. None of them have given me any trouble. One of them is in the PC that I use exclusively as an HTPC running Windows 8.1 with Windows Media Center.

My HTPC consists of an Intel DH67GD, i5-2400 processor, 16 GB of memory, and Nvidia GT640 video card. OTA tuning is handled by two SiliconDust HDHR3-US tuners over a gigabit network. Storage is handled by an Intel 120GB 330 Series SSD functioning as the system drive and a Western Digital WD10EURX for storing the video and audio files. Given that the Western Digital WD10EURX is also designed for video storage, I thought it would be interesting to see how the WD10JUCT compares in performance to its bigger brother, the WD10EURX.

First thing I did was run some quick benchmarks on the WD10EURX using Parkdale. With nothing running in the background it scored a sequential write speed of 113 Mbytes/sec and a sequential read speed of 115 Mbytes/sec. I then started an HD video in Windows Media Center while playing a HD video in MPC at the same time. The scores dropped to sequential write speed of 104 Mbytes/sec and a sequential read speed of 111 Mbytes/sec.

After copying around 500 GB of video files from the WD10EURX to the WD10JUCT, I removed the WD-10EURX and replaced it with the WD10JUCT. With nothing running in the background it scored a sequential write speed of 90 Mbytes/sec and a sequential read speed of 92 Mbytes/sec. I then started the same HD video in Windows Media Center while playing the same HD video in MPC at the same time. The scores dropped to sequential write speed of 83 Mbytes/sec and a sequential read speed of 89 Mbytes/sec.

I won’t bore you with specs, but while it is no big surprise that the WD10EURX outperforms the WD10JUCT, more importantly, the quality of the video playback was identical between the two drives. I used the WD10JUCT for several days and did not perceive any difference in performance or quality. I also noticed that the WD10JUCT is very quiet, and doesn’t throw off a lot of heat. I can’t speak to the reliability of the drive, but as I mentioned before Western Digital drives have been very reliable for me, and I expect this drive to be no different.

To summarize, the WD10JUCT seems to be an excellent choice if you are building an HTPC and need a 2.5” internal hard drive. Otherwise, if you have space for a 3.5” drive, save some money and buy something like a WD10EURX, or use spend the same amount of money and buy a larger capacity 3.5” drive like the 2TB WD20EURX.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive

Pros: had this drive hooked up for little over 2 weeks running all the time. It isn't running any operating system as of yet, using this as a Slave drive to run movies, doing back ups, file transfers and so far its been doing great, The drive runs Very quite and runs nice and cool, so far hasn't gotten very hot.

Cons: So far i haven't run into any, Will post again if i do

Other Thoughts: here are some specks that i got so far testing this drive.
Sequential Read : 35. MB/s
Sequential Write : 32. MB/s
running a benchmark test. there are other tests it runs, but most like to just see how fast the drive is. so i listed that, other tests i done:
Full Format: little over 5hrs
Transerfing 539 gb to drive took about 4hrs .
Transfering 530gb back to other drive took around 3hrs

On file transfers to drive i was getting around 22 to 23mbs average, while i was transfering files to other drives i was getting around 33 to 34mbs average speeds.

Watching movies from drive it performed very good without any problems.

If you are going to be using this drive as an HTPC drive, a back up drive to store movies files etc. or using this in a DVR
I would recommend this drive, Its not the fastest, but it stays cool, runs very quite, and does a good job so far,
Not sure on long term as i only tested this for only a few weeks.
But it has been running all the time with out any problems, I will post again in another couple weeks after running more tests, but as of now. it has been a good reliable drive... and using a drive in those areas i just mentioned, you need something that runs cool and quite and that is reliable,

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for use in NAS or HTPC

Pros: Quiet, small 2.5" form factor, low power, and more than adequate speed for an always on HTPC or NAS. 24/7 reliability.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: As soon as I got this drive, I installed it in an always on HTPC I have in my home. The HTPC previously had a 3.5" SATA drive, but I replaced it with this and mounted it to the 2.5" mounting bracket that the case came with and the drive worked as expected. As an Operating System drive, I noticed no decrease in performance from the 3.5" 7200 RPM drive it replaced. Im not saying that under intensive data transfer tests, this drive would equal a 7200 RPM drive, but being part of WD's A/V line of drives, thats not what this drive is intended for.

I wanted to wait at least a month before posting my review of this drive, because I wanted to be able to see how it held up to 24/7 usage and for that, its been great.

Theres really not much more to say about this drive, other than it works, its quiet, low power, and its as fast as any other drive would be when used in its intended role, which is that of an A/V drive. Highly recommended!

5 out of 5 eggsQuick and quiet?!

Pros: Pros: This drive runs EXTREMELY cool and quiet. It's also quite fast. In HDTach on my AMD SB950 based chipset (SATA 6gbps) system, the drive managed to pull off a quite impressive 95mb/sec average read and a 15.6ms random access time. That's almost as fast as my 7200.12 rpm drive! You can't hear the drive spinning, but you can hear the occasional noise in a silent room with data being written to it.

I temporarily had the drive hooked up via. eSATA, in a hard drive dock. Definitely not the best for heat dissapation or silencing the drive...so i'm extremely impressed.

The drive is able to handle recording multiple video streams at once from a few network cameras (too bad my cameras aren't able to push my 802.11AC network), But with how speedy this drive is, I'm sure it could handle a bunch more.

After benchmarking the drive against a Hybrid SSDHDD, the mechanical portion of this drive is a little faster at sequential reads and writes, and has a much quicker random access time. Again, I'm very impressed with this drive.

Cons: These drives are NOT to be used as storage or a boot drive! AV work only. It handles errors VERY differently than any other drive on the market. Instead of pausing and retrying like most drives, it accepts the error and continues. Would you rather have a corrupt frame of a video or a minute of missing time in your video? Although, it is kind of a pro...depending on what you use the drive for. If you get this drive, it should only be used for recording video of some sort! Surveillance video or maybe even some TV shows/movies. This drive is NOT a regular hard drive!

Other Thoughts: Some of the 3.5" GP-AV drives were just as fast as the Caviar Green drives, but ran a bit warmer to the touch. This is most definitely NOT the case with this drive.This seems to be exactly what anybody would want in a notebook sized drive, recording many streams of video. Whether it's surveillance or media related, it'll do the job.

The only question is: how long will it last? With temperatures like this, I imagine a bit longer than most. Heat kills drives, and I haven't been able to make this drive warm to the touch. 30c MAXIMUM in an 85 degree Fahrenheit room?! I approve.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for media center HTPC DVR drive

Pros: - Quiet for HTPC
- Small enough for mini-ITX
- Large capacity for many hours of HD recording
- Runs cool
- Suited for DVR applications, which is what I am using it for.

Cons: - None so far

Other Thoughts: I am using this a my bedroom HTPC which is a mini-ITX HTPC that uses Windows Media Center and a networked SiliconDust HDHomeRun Prime to DVR TV. For the longest time I was using a 128GB SSD for both the OS and recordings but research made me paranoid enough to realize I was better off off-loading the recordings and live TV buffer to a regular drive and saving the write-cycles on my SSD. My mini-ITX case, a Realan E-K3 can fit 2 x 2.5" HDDs so I moved my OS to a 64GB SSD and my recordings/buffer to this 1TB drive.

My biggest worry with adding a regular drive to a mini-ITX HTPC were heat and noise. This drive has neither. You cannot hear it at all and temperatures in this small case have remained the same. Despite being 1TB, this HDD is the standard height for 2.5" devices so it fit perfect. This then should have no problem fitting in a notebook. This in combination with an mSATA SSD in a notebook would be an excellent combination -- have the OS on the SSD and media on the 1TB drive.

As for performance, I am not doing much to tax the drive but I don't notice (and don't expect to notice) a difference with the live TV buffer on the hard drive now. I do have what seems like some crazy number of hours of recording space now which is great in case I am not able to sweep the programs to my home server before space runs out. I can also keep copy-once recordings on this drive instead of moving them to the server which means they now won't show up on my other HTPCs that cannot see them.

Overall, this is a great drive. I make a HTPCs for other people and if they want space for media or live TV buffer/recordings, this is definitely the drive I will use.
