2 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Good packaging.

Cons: Would not be recognized in disk management or the BIOS so I'm assuming it was dead on arrival. It also had this very high pitched but quiet whistle noise that made me want to gouge my eyes out. Maybe the 2 issues are related.

Other Thoughts: The SATA port/cable I was trying on this drive are good. I plugged them into my existing HDD and it was recognized immediately, so I know it's the HDD that's the problem. I wish they didn't make you give an egg rating for DOA items.

1 out of 5 eggsWD 1.0TB HDD

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: WD claims to have a 30-day free support program built in to the system. One can discard that as bogus. I spoke with one support agent with NO experience and got hung up on. I spoke to another agent with a little experience but got hung up on. The agents are not courteous enough to call back after a disconnect. If the client calls back after a disconnect there is no way to continue with the same agent. Don't expect any real help from WD's support staff. I think they have a cookie speech sheet and the one agent asked stupid questions when the issue had to do with Windows 7. He kept interupting me saying "I know what I'm doing" when he actually didn't. He wanted the model numbers of my motherboard and CPU which had no relation at all to the issue because I had the new HDD temporarily mounted in my bench=test computer which is not where the new HDD would finally be mounted. the 2nd agent half-way knew what the issue was but hung up on me half way through the procedure. I had enough experience to fix the problem but spent about 80 hours working it out where with expert help I might have got it done in a few minutes. Don't bother to expect any support from WD. I even filed a formal complaint via email with NO response.

Cons: I won't buy any more WD drives after the cruddy support I got.

5 out of 5 eggsTerabyte Hard Drive

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: It's never a bad thing to have too much memory for your system so I ended up choosing this cool little gadget for my new system that I'm putting together. It fit very nicely into my NZXT desktop case so grateful for that. It's going to take me a very long time to fill this hard drive up and I'm very happy to have bought this item.

Cons: No negative reviews

Pros: Good value, always had good luck with WD internal drives! Newegg packed it really well for transport.

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: > 5 year warranty
> Works as intended

Cons: Not as fast as a SDD lolol

Other Thoughts: Im a newbie to PC building so it took me awhile to get windows to recognize the drive. Eventually had to use cmd to assign it a drive letter so I could format it with NTFS.
