5 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Solid HDD, faster than my old Seagate 500gb. I haven't benchmarked it (because really who cares), but I can tell by applications loading times & file transfer speeds. Using it as a storage disk with an SSD for boot drive (of course), but I put all my games on here as to not fill my SSD. Loading screens are much quicker. All S.M.A.R.T. readings are normal and the drive didn't come with any corrupt sectors. Very pleased as I got it on sale.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Intel i7 4790k @ 4.6 ghz
MSI z97 Gaming 5 Motherboard
MSI Nvidia GTX 770
2x 4gb G.Skill Sniper 2133mhz CL9D

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Depenable

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

Pros: This is for a video editing machine and it does its job well.

These drives are really worked and so far not a whimper!

Cons: None really, except it's not SSD

Other Thoughts: This build has two of these one for video files and one for audio files and a 4TB unit for internal back up.
There is a as SSD as C:\ that hold the OS and the editing program that pulls the files form each of these drives to combine them into a full presentation.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality Consistent

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

Pros: Fast, smooth data delivery, quiet operation. 5 year warranty, good dependable bang for the buck.

Cons: Not too many!

At 7200 RPM, they aren't as silent or as cool running as a WD Green hard drive. The Black Labels have a feint and constant drone to them. That's to be expected. And I am stretching it to call this a "con" because this Black Lable Caviar is very quiet. But if you want a virtually silent drive, the Greens are hard to beat for a basic home (non-gamer) desktop.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased several of these Caviar Black Labeled drives over the years and have never had issues with them. They cost a few dollars more, yes, but they give back in durability, speed and longevity.

For a home desktop system, these are great. Fast and reliable. If you are looking for a super-silent hard drive, then maybe one of the newer WD Green 5400's would be better, with only a minor loss of speed (for non-gaming machinges) Yes, the Greens also do well as a system drive a basic home desktop system and they run cooler as well.

3 out of 5 eggsFirst WD Black Drive

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

Pros: Drive is extremely fast. I would of rated this drive with 5 eggs, but due to the con's it is only a 3 egg rating.

Cons: Had a problem when I installed this drive in a External enclosure w/USB 3.0 support. Using Windows 7 64bit, the drive was recognized, but when attempting to format the drive, Windows HUNG (System Reset Hang). After that the drive would not be recognized by windows. Remove the drive and placed in a removable internal drive tray and ran a standalone version of Partition Magic to format the drive. After replacing the drive in the USB 3.0 enclosure, windows is happy. Don't know what caused the problem.

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

Pros: goes fast

Cons: Set in the future, the plot follows Zoichi Kanoe and his AI companion Fuyu Kanoe, whose luminous form is integrated into the system of his motorcycle. They are agents sent by TOA Heavy Industries to retrieve humans with the ability to resist and transmute the N5S infection, which is spreading across the world, turning humans into "Drones"; disfigured, zombie-like beings.

5 out of 5 eggsworking on installing it

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

Pros: Finally through the WD support link under the newegg specs for this HDD I was able to find the Acronis Alignment software that enable the Advanced format for this newer drive. I copied the modle name into the search box for WD1003FZEX, and the Acronis link was on the WD Black downloads page.

Cons: none yet. It mostly has taken time to find the Acronis alignment software for the Advanced Format needed for this WD1003FZEX.

Other Thoughts: needed a new HDD to install my OS on account of older HDD and even a SSD getting blue screens causing freezes and reboots and reboots and more reboots from blue screens.

1 out of 5 eggs2 drives DOA

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

Pros: The only pro about this product so far has been the ease of returning it. Newegg Premier service has been great.

Cons: This is my first purchase of the Black series hard drives. I have used the Green, Blue, Red, Purple, and the RE series with very minimal problems. I have had Green and Blue series drives last 7-8 years easy. So wouldn't you expect a higher level of quality from a drive with one of the highest warranty periods? Two drives in a row have arrived dead. How do I sell a higher level of drive to a customer when I have to explain yet another failed drive. Now I have to wait to return this one again and eat the cost of getting another model here asap.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

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

Pros: It has a very fast read and write time. PLENTY of storage.
I really like the design of it and was very easy to setup.
Also, you can't beat the price.

Cons: First one I got incorrectly formatted and ended up locking itself to a read only state. Since it wasn't formatted correctly, Windows wasn't able to apply its signature correctly and ended up completely corrupting the partition to the point there was no other way to fix it.
HOWEVER, this happens to electronics and it is a hassle and an inconvenience, so I'm not going to bump the rating down because the working one I received is superb.

Other Thoughts: I definitely recommend this product to anyone.
