2 out of 5 eggsGood when they work...

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: When the drives work, they have a lot of room.

Cons: We've been using the 2TB drives for many years now, black-series and RE4. No problems.

Recently started moving forward to the 4TB drives and have had a good share of problems. One drive DOA, another was good for a few weeks before all the data on the drive was unreadable and corrupt. The contents all went bad.

Its a good thing we've replicated this data across numerous drives. So far, defect rates are HIGH. Hopefully things will improve.

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Able to use my thermaltake HD dock and format. all four that I bought were perfect. In all, i have actually gotten 10 WD HDs. Only one that was DOA and warranty of WD took care of it. The problem is that I usually don't have time to tes thte hard drive until after the Newegg standard return policy and WD picks up the slack.

All going in to the newest Synology, but 1514+ not out yet . . . I just tested the drives to ensure they were ready. Back in the box.

WD HD not much else to say. performance as expected.

Cons: you are paying a premium for the brand and support.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Drives

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: These for me are the best hard drives I can find. I have bought many wd black drives over the years and all worked without failure. I have tried some of other brand's best drives and have had failures.

Cons: I have none

Other Thoughts: I buy these when building a new computer. I also get these when reinstalling windows on a computer that has been in service for a while, then use the old wd black boot drive as storage drives. I also use them as external storage drives with a drive dock. My belief, you should always use what ever drive you think is absolutely the best for a boot drive. For me, that applies to storage drives too.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, reliable - 5 year warranty

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: The deciding factor for me was the 5-year warranty.

However, I have found these drives to be reliable and they are fast. Very fast.

I have 2 of these in my system.

Cons: None, thus far.

5 out of 5 eggsPackaging nicely finally

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: You must need to buy WD Black in order to get quality packaging. For two drives they used individual boxes, with actual drive shipping containers, the drives themselves surrounded with extra thick padding. I'm used to flimsy drive packaging, but I hope this is a sign that NE wants to get the drives to you safely now and in the future.

Well what else, it's WD Black with 5 year warranty, we know why we buy it. It does run a little hot particularly in a raid array.

Cons: Price, but as usual - coming down. You are paying for that extra two years warranty.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Performance HDD

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: -Fast (For a HDD)
-Lots or storage space

Cons: -Not very quiet. I can hear it going even over my cooling fans

Other Thoughts: Its fast for a traditional Hard Disk. Use it to store all my heavy media files.

3 out of 5 eggsSlow Boot

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Once I boot into Windows, all seems to work OK.

Cons: I just bought a 4TB WD Black Hard Drive for my storage, and ever since, my boot times have slowed dramatically.

I have Googled it, and it seems that the common denominator here are large WD Hard Drives.

By the way, as someone else said, it runs very hot. Nearly burnt my fingers.

Also, a little noisy in comparison to my WD 2TB Black I replaced it with.
