5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drives but price has risen a lot in the last few years

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Fast, Quiet

Cons: Current Price

Other Thoughts: I have 3 of these drives and all of them is 1TB in size. I paid no more than 170.00 each. I was shocked to see the current price is hovering around 400 bucks just for one. wow

5 out of 5 eggsTop of the Line - Best data storage Drive I've ever used

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: High Capacity
Extremely Reliable
Quite (for a Raptor drive)
Fast!

Cons: Not a con but just not as fast as a SSD (solid state drive)

Other Thoughts: I would reorder one of these for my next purchase! Etronix World is a great company and solid supplier!

2 out of 5 eggsTwo down, rolling dice on 3rd

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: The pros when this drive is running are many:
It's fast, a very capable boot drive, good enough storage for games, doesn't increase computer's internal temperature much.

Cons: The cons so far have been many:
The first drive was shipped with a couple of bad sectors according to HDTune (always run that on new drives). I contacted Newegg and then Western Digital to see if those two bad sectors were enough to do a return. WD advised me to run their program to see if the drive was ok -- it found it was acceptable to run.

So a couple of months and very little real use go by, and the drive has more sector errors, refuses to boot and both diagnostics (WD and HDTune) show multiple errors and the drive is bad. Fast forward a very good experience with warranty work....

Second drive has 0 bad sectors after HDTune. Then I install all my programs... A little later.... Boom problems with the computer slowing down to a crawl on boot, run HDTune and no bad sectors but multiple SMART warnings. Run the official WD tool and it can't even complete scanning the drive.

Two failed drives. I'm sending second one back and hoping the third one can be better.

Other Thoughts: The WD customer support has been very on top of things. But it sort of makes me think these drives are known to fail. I'm not taxing them at all -- they're not even 200 gb full and it's used as a media computer for my 5 year old to watch shows and play LEGO video games. Very disappointing thus far. Hope third time is the charm.

If WD support hadn't been so on top of things, I'd have switched to buying another brand. If the third one failed, the support service offered to change families -- so a black or enterprise version -- which is incredibly nice.

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Purchased a WD1000DHTZ on 05/25/2015. HDD was shipped quickly by New egg. Installed in system. Drive worked flawless.

Cons: On 07/23/2015 two days before two months in system, PC failed during boot. Checked system and found SMART failure error for my WD1000DHTZ. Downloaded WD dlgdiag software and checked drive. Data lifeguard software displayed "extended TEST failed, with the dreaded red X stating "Too Many Bad Sectors." HDD is bad. Must replace. Will contact WD.

1 out of 5 eggsAwful Peice of Equipment

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Came broken did not work. Physically fine. Did not work upon arrival and created an RMa for a return. One week later I receive word that I will not be receiving my refund because the bezzle was broken and they considered that physical damage. That's just horse **** not a single thing was wrong with this piece. They instructed me I could get a new hard drive from the manufacturer but I bought a new hard drive a week ago from BB because I needed one to get my OS running and my computer too. I have no use for it and now a useless broken $240 piece of equipment. Stay away from this piece and be careful buying anything from newegg they'll take your hard earned money then gut you when **** hits the fan

Other Thoughts: Newegg is not reliable to its customers tread carefully in this dangerous waters.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive from WD

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Have always been a proponent of WD drives for my builds. Have never had one arrive DOA. VelociRaptors are my drive of choice for the OS & Applications. Data & backups go onto slower speed WD HDDs. 1TB might be a little overkill, but, this drive seemed to have the best price point at the time of ordering.

Cons: It's not free

3 out of 5 eggsWhen it isn't DOA it's great

This review is from: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: So I'm giving 3 stars because the first drive was DOA, other one works great.

Cons: Not SSD speed, but much better than 7200RPM
