5 out of 5 eggsUnsure of why others complain.

This review is from: WD Black 4TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD4003FZEX

Pros: Seems to have good speed, quiet, not too hot while running.

Cons: None So Far

Other Thoughts: I read some of the negative reviews on this drive, and I admit to not doing my homework before buying.

BUT....I plugged it into a USB2 Dock and it showed up as 1.6Tb even when formatted GPT, then I took it from the dock, and attached it direct to the onboard controller as an internal drive... all bad issues disappeared, and it is running nice and quiet, with good transfer rates, using it for iTunes media drive for Apple TV, and the only issue not yet observed/resolved are the reports of its near term failures, I will get back to you if that happens.

But so far, as usual, great drive, WD.

3 out of 5 eggsSolid Performancem but noisy

This review is from: WD Black 4TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD4003FZEX

Pros: Seems fast and it installed with no problems

Cons: noisy

Other Thoughts: I have owned many drives in my lifetime and this is one of the noisiest ones I have ever had. Otherwise, performance is just fine, but you can sure hear this baby when it reads and writes.

1 out of 5 eggs4TB impossible to configure on Windows 10

This review is from: WD Black 4TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD4003FZEX

Pros: Big in Size and shipped fast.

Cons: No support articles on 4TB issues with 99% of Operating Systems or motherboards.

Other Thoughts: Cannot get this to format , mount or anything. I used WD and several other diagnostic programs and drive is fine. I have read this hard drive is not ready to be used with most motherboards to the big size. Wasted money on this, your better having 2x2TB installed in your box to save you all the headaches.

5 out of 5 eggsWD 4TB 7200RPM HDD

This review is from: WD Black 4TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD4003FZEX

Pros: -Quiet
-Cool
-Decent speeds
-Good storage space

Cons: The usable space on this drive is a little low imo. After formatting and setting up the drive my 4TB drive has 3.63TB of useable space. I realize that this happens and expect a bit of space to not be usable so i didn't dock an egg... but nearly half a TB? Just seems a bit much.

Other Thoughts: decent little drive. Overall I am happy with my purchase and would buy this drive again in the future.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat drive with one flaw

This review is from: WD Black 4TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD4003FZEX

Pros: I've always used WD Black drives for their reliability and dependence and this one is no different. They are great drives.

Cons: I've owned MANY WD Black drives and this one is the only one to ever do this but it does cost it a star.

The SATA cable will not snap and lock into the hard drive. I've tried three different cables that snap in place fine on other equipment but on this hard drive they just won't snap and lock in. It's provides a semi-snug fit so as long as there's no jostling around of the drive, which there shouldn't be, then there shouldn't be a problem but it costs it a star nonetheless because I can see it being an issue one day.

Other Thoughts: Great drive but with poor SATA connector.

4 out of 5 eggsGood drive

This review is from: WD Black 4TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD4003FZEX

Pros: First drive was DOA. Filled out an RMA with Western Digital and they sent me a new drive. Fast and (after a month) reliable. Performs as I expected.

Cons: I had to pay shipping on the RMA so -1 egg for WD

Other Thoughts: I trust WD drives and they are all I use for last 12 years when it comes to HDDs (SAMSUNG when it comes to solid states).

5 out of 5 eggsPowerhouse of a RAID Array

This review is from: WD Black 4TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD4003FZEX

Pros: - 4TB. Never need to empty that Recycle Bin.
- Black edition are better at more performance and better designed for 24 hour performance (Don't expect any non-server drive to run continuously until the day it dies. You will destroy the drive doing that.

Cons: - Its price point hurts, but you could get cheaper drives if you want to sacrifice performance and stability for price.

Other Thoughts: I have 2 of these in RAID 0. I used this as a mass install drive for non-essential programs like games or virtual PCs, and for backup. My tests show this RAID is about ~50% faster than their non-RAID speeds. Plus its fun to say "I got a 8TB drive on my PC." I do not recommend RAID 0 for your boot drive, which this isn't in my PC.
