2 out of 5 eggsNoise was a deal breaker

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

Pros: Worked

Cons: The noise is unbearable, so loud all you can think about is whether or not the drive is going bad.

Packaging left a lot to be desired.

Other Thoughts: I have a Black 1 TB in my Wife's PC that works fantastic. When I built my new rig, I thought, why not try the 2 TB model. Well, turned out it was a mistake. The noise the drive produces is incredibly loud. Did not seem to matter how I mounted it, the noise was always present.

I tried to live with it, but every time I booted the pc up it was all I could think about and was slowly driving me crazy. I have decided to return it and give something else a try.

4 out of 5 eggsExtremely long format time

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

Pros: Good price point, quick delivery. Have consistently used WD drives in my PC builds and have been very happy. Bought this a part of backup and storage for my HTPC.

Cons: Used in lowend HTPC with Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit. Also 1st experience with formatting hdd larger than 1TB. Formatting seemed to take forever after partition was created (like a low level format). A few issues with loading all media files onto the hdd necessitating do overs.

Other Thoughts: Will outline issue with WD tech support and if there are issues, I will update this review.

3 out of 5 eggsnice disk but packaging still iffy

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

Pros: passed disk check, hdbench shows it performs as advertised

Cons: shipped in fitted bubble wrap envelope, but the disk wasn't fully
inserted in the envelope so that one end was unbuffered against
cardboard box.

Other Thoughts: I buy for the disk's reliability, so shipment packaging is vital.

3 out of 5 eggsMay be bugged?

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

Pros: The hard drive hasn't come DOA as many hard drives you may hear about come, it so far performs smoothly although i have yet to get it nearly as filled up with data, for the price and deal that i got with this i cant complain.

Cons: Now this may come across as super tin foil hat-ish but there have been reports that a few companies have been working with the NSA and planting a smart virus into the firmware of hard drives. It's been said that they did this because when it's built into the firmware the virus software cannot find it. So in short all these hard drives have a built in back door for the NSA.
Some of the named companies involved in this scandal are:
1) Western Digital, 2) Seagate, 3) Toshiba, 4) IBM, 5) Micro Technology, & 6) Samsung

I'm not saying do not buy this product but just want you all to be informed as a consumer.

1 out of 5 eggsGrinding out of the box

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

Pros: none since it never worked

Cons: Vibrating and Grinding on power up.

Other Thoughts: I built a completely new rig, powered on and heard something not right. At first I thought it was a bad fan but then I heard the head seeking on the HD. Once I touched it I could feel the vibration.

You can watch on YouTube by searching on :
"Western Digital WD2003FZEX bad out of box"
You'll see my hand holding the drive.
