1 out of 5 eggsThese HDDs are going back to Newegg!

This review is from: WD Black 500GB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5003AZEX

Pros: Worked wonderfully for about 6 hours.

Cons: After 6 hours one of the disks started making swooshing noises like an old windshield wiper. System destroyed, disk not recognized, gone.

Other Thoughts: I'm done with the HDDs, going to get an SSD instead.

This review is from: WD Black 500GB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5003AZEX

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This one went into a new build in a Small Form Factor case.

5 out of 5 eggsWD at it's best!

This review is from: WD Black 500GB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5003AZEX

Pros: decent price, reliable, quiet

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: I use it for Windows and programs only. All my data are on another HDDs including RAID. Thus I do not have any space problem. But if you buy it as the only disk for your PC it is not too much nowadays...
