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

2 out of 5 eggsCRASHED DRIVE

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 hard drive, when it worked, was fast.

Cons: Hard drive crashed within 6 months of purchase. I do not consider this hard drive to be a worthy investment as less expensive hard drives have last me longer. I had always heard good things about Western Digital but I will be going with another brand from now on.

2 out of 5 eggsNot so sure about this drive

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: Big size drive, somewhat fast

Cons: Lots of noise! Have had nothing but problems, check-disc runs every time I boot up sometimes more than once. It crashed completely yesterday.
In the repair shop and I'm waiting for a report of the problem. May have to return the drive?

Other Thoughts: If I have to return the drive I'll upgrade to SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, RE: Sector sizes

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, even at the outer edge of the disk, excellent seek times due to the tiny platters and high RPMs

Cons: availability issues recently

Other Thoughts: To work around the SQL Server sector size issue you could create a .vhd file with 512b sector size, mount it, and put your db files on this mounted 512b 'virtual disk'

Check out the syntax for the 'New-VHD' powershell cmdlet, I think you might need to install Hyper-V to get this tool though, not sure...but I know it works

3 out of 5 eggsSector sizes not compatible

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: Nice drive for day to day use, a good alternative to ssd.
although questionably.

Cons: Sector sizes are not compatible with MS SQLServer

Other Thoughts: I had to stick to my 300gb velociraotpr and use this 1Tb as additional storage that I did not need.
