5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive for Gaming

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD2003FZEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Had it for a week now. I'm using this as a secondary drive so I can game faster from it. Loads a lot faster than my WD Blue. But they're both good drives.

Cons: The drive has a very slow spin-up time after it being parked or powered on, (About 8 seconds spin-up time) causing my BIOS to take longer to load the "Starting Windows" screen.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a Hard Drive with fast performance at the right cost, this is the drive to get.

5 out of 5 eggsThey never fail

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD2003FZEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: This is the third drive of the FZEX 2TB drives I have along with a 1TB FZEX. I've never lost a Western Digital drive in my 15+ years of buying and using my own dedicated hardware.

-Fast
-Relatively quiet
-Insanely reliable
-5 year warranty

Cons: None. Time have proven that Western Digital Blacks are the most reliable drives.

Other Thoughts: The best.

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD2003FZEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Good speeds / large size / Long warranty

Cons: LOUD , its louder than all by fans put together "4 w/ radiator"

Other Thoughts: i thought the hard drive was dieing when i first used it because of the noise, i cant tell any difference between this and other hard drives of the same spec's but the warranty is nice.

3 out of 5 eggsPlenty of space, but slow and LOUD!

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD2003FZEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: -Drive has plenty of space to tide me over for the next year or two.

-Got the drive at a decent price when it was on sale for $119.

-5 year warranty will hopefully mean that it lasts longer than the 2 year old Seagate this drive replaces. The Seagate was starting to fail, leaving me BSODed several times. Thankfully no data lost, but I should hope this drive lasts longer.

Cons: -The whole system is noticeably slower than the 1TB Seagate drive that this one replaced. From browsing the web, to loading levels in games and running virus scans, it all takes a longer time to load things from this drive.

-NOISY OPERATION! Everything this drive does gets done alongside loud clicks, buzzing, and rattle sounds. It sounds like drives I remember in the 1990s that used to make such noises. If one has to sleep in the same room as a system with this drive, best hope it doesn't decide to run a virus scan while idle. It WILL keep one awake with drive noise. It will buzz, click and make noise LOUDLY for as long as the drive is in action. Will spoil Netflix movies as well if the drive has to do any work while one watches.

Other Thoughts: I got this drive to replace an ailing Seagate that started to disconnect itself after only 2 years of operation. While I didn't lose any data, this new WD Drive will hopefully tide me over until I either go Solid State, or until I obtain an even larger system drive. Either way, the slow and noisy operation offset the higher capacity of my old drive.

1 out of 5 eggsLoud Out Of The Box..For 6 Months Plus

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD2003FZEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: It works

Cons: It's Very Loud

Other Thoughts: Been running it for over 6 months now. Every time I access the drive, it starts making a loud "machine gun" noise. Drive works, but noise makes me less than confident it's not gonna "brick" suddenly (based on my 20 years of tech support experience).

Ran WD Diagnostics Tools, Did not indicate what was causing the noise.

I've bought multiple other WD Hard Drives, None are as noisy.
