5 out of 5 eggsGood drive, clicks a lot

5 out of 5 eggsWD Black 2TB

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

Pros: - Inexpensive.
- 5 year warranty.
- Rather fast once accessed.
- WD reliability and stability.

Cons: - Rather loud when it kicks in (see Other Thoughts.)

Other Thoughts: - I use mine strictly to store data, record video to, and play media. I run my OS, programs, and games off SSD drives so the drive isn't being accessed during regular use. When accessing folders and browsing the drive it is quite loud and takes a moment to spin up.

- Recording video and watching media does not seem to cause as excessive of a noise as initially browsing the drive, so maybe use as a daily driver wouldn't be overly noisy. Once accessed the drive is quite fast and have no stutters or other issues when recording video to it.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but loud

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

Pros: Works Great, easy installation

Cons: For some reason, mostly at start-up or shortly after, it is really loud and you can hear the mechanical components moving. It is the loudest part of my computer and is rather annoying.

Other Thoughts: Overall I would recommend this card to anyone. In my case I use it for storing all of my games on it and recorded videos (of gameplay). It is super annoying when it makes the loud noises, but other than that It's great.

2 out of 5 eggsDefective 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: I have used several WD products in my computers. This is the first major issue I've had.

Cons: The hard drive was defective and I have spent a month haggling with Western Digital's awful support service. It took them 24 hours to figure out the drive was defective and I still haven't seen a replacement.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Vibration, runs hot

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

Pros: None, Well, maybe "inexpensive".

Cons: About a day after the installation I noticed that the machine in which it was installed was emitting a low, but loud hum. The whole computer case was vibrating, and was causing the case parts to rattle and emit the hum. Feeling around, I found the source of the vibration and it was this drive. Diagnostics, however, showed nothing wrong, but nonetheless I know this drive is headed for failure.

I also noted that the drive temps were about 6 to 8 C higher than other WD drives in the machine, two earlier-model WD2002FAEX's which have been rock-solid for years.

Other Thoughts: I know you sometimes get a lemon, but I'm seeing a general negative trend with current HDDs. I'm having to return more of them, they are failing sooner, and therefore wasting more of my time dealing with them.

Do I have to spend way over $200 now for the old stalwart, the WD2002FAEX? Not sure where else to turn now - many of the older, more reliable 2TB drives have been discontinued.

4 out of 5 eggsNice drive

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

Pros: Fast and large storage capacity.

Cons: No cons with the drive so far. Only item that wasn't included with the drive was a tip sheet reminder that the drive had to be initialized prior to use. I forgot that step for a while and needed a reminder from a friend. Once that was accomplished all was well so a reminder note packaged with the drive would have saved some time.

3 out of 5 eggsOut of times

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

Pros: 1. High speed than Red and Blue.
2. Working(track searching) sound is small(smaller than Red and Blue)

Cons: 1. Motor sound is large, especially when you turn off your computer.
2. The hard drive resonances with my case and vibration everywhere.

Other Thoughts: If you have an SSD as you system and working disk, the black is useless. You may use Red as a storage, which is better than green and more quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

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

Pros: Works great, fast, quiet. I went from an OCZ PCIe SSD which I won't buy anymore after 3rd one died on me. Lifespan on this mechanical HDD is longer than an SSD, reliability is high. LOTS of SPACE for less money! Zero noticeable speed difference going from the OCZ SSD. I wouldn't buy anything other than this. NOTHING wrong with it.

Cons: I was hoping for a really loud 80's sounding retro hard drive, as so many reviews said it was loud. So I'm kinda disappointed it's not loud. I even have my case opened and I barely can hear it.
