2 out of 5 eggsBroke in less than 2 years, started up slower and slower than grinded to a complete halt

This review is from: WD Black 2TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD2003FZEX

Pros: It's supposedly fast and has good features for performance and such.

Cons: Noisy, the friend I bought it for complained it was loud as soon as he got it
Failed in less than 2 years
The friend I bought it for said it was starting up slower and slower and getting noisier.

Other Thoughts: Considering I've bought two of these types of drives, one for myself and another for my friend, I wouldn't recommend it. They bought failed within a few years of use and I was buying it for the Western Digital name and the performance of the black series, but they failed to impress.

5 out of 5 eggsTrying as a replacement

This review is from: WD Black 2TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD2003FZEX

Pros: Not DOA
Faster than WD1001FALS

Cons: Sounds as bad as the drive it replaces.

Other Thoughts: Bought to replace 7-year-old WD1001FALS, which still works but don't want to push luck. WD2003FZEX drive is about %30 faster than 1001FALS. When new the 1001FALS was whisper quiet. Noise that usually signals immanent death seems to be common for WD2003FZEX.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks, but not impressed.

This review is from: WD Black 2TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD2003FZEX

Pros: Like the title says it came and worked properly, transferred my files over quickly.

Cons: When i put this in my rig and fired it up it started out by making a nasty winding up noise and i thought its probably because its brand new.
So i shut down my PC and the shutting off noise is even worse. Its very obnoxious in my opinion.
Its not only the first time you power this up.
It happens every time i turn my computer on and off. Even while I'm playing a game.
Not only that I have Newegg Premier so i requested TWO day service on a Tuesday. Didn't get the darn thing didn't come til Friday.

Other Thoughts: Wasn't expecting to experience this from Western Digital, even Newegg. Didn't meet my expectations from the reviews i read. I'm just happy I didn't spend more money on a WD HDD. 3 stars.

5 out of 5 eggsGotta have 'em

This review is from: WD Black 2TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD2003FZEX

Pros: -Price
-Size
-Speed
-Hoping relaibility...

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: -Hoping to get many hours of reliable data storage from the 2 I set up in a RAID 1. As I had to use an add on RAID card to get that capability with the M2 card I wanted for my OS drive, I cannot really benchmark the performance. I have added some latency to any result I would get with the additional hardware involved and the path to the drives.
