5 out of 5 eggsThe Little Engine That Could

Pros: Stable, consistent performance for the given specifications. Low noise & heat.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The low RPMs are a two-edged sword. This disk is doing the best it can. It simply cannot keep up with the usage my wife is putting it through. Her netbook performance is degrading. The WD10JUCT is simply not the right fit for her needs (higher performance grade hardware needed). I did not realize how much she beats up that netbook...

3 out of 5 eggsSlowed down my MacBook Pro

Pros: Lots of space at a good price

Cons: In less than a year, my computer is very slow. Even very small tasks like opening a folder take an unusually long amount of time.

Other Thoughts: I installed the unit in January 2014, and it was very nice and fast at first. Now, however, my computer is fairly slow, especially in the last few weeks. I mostly use it for school-related applications and not a lot of video or computational tasks. I will admit that I have not run all the diagnostic tests to see if something else might be slowing down my computer, but the hard drive is often a safe bet. I am going to look into getting a solid state drive so it will not slow down over time.

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,
