5 out of 5 eggsWD1003FZEX 1TB SATA DRIVE

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

Pros: Fast and quiet. Not a single glitch. Runs fairly cool.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I opted for free Super Eggsaver shipping which involved DHL. Fair warning to others. If they are involved pay the extra few buck to avoid them. The drive is in limbo and getting through to DHL customer support is a joke. First time on hold 55 minutes then told they were closed and hung up. Second simply hung up. Third and fourth was told reps were in discussion and hung up again.

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

Pros: Best mechanical HDD you can buy. I've purchased quite a few of these over the years. All are still working.

Cons: IF you do happen to get a bad one, WD RMA is very easy.
BUT they DO NOT send you a NEW replacement drive. you get a RECERTIFIED drive.

5 out of 5 eggsALWAYS

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

Pros: For about 7 years and after a Seagate catastrophe, I've used nothing but multiple WD hard drives in a computer that's on very nearly 24/7. Have needed to replace but one (this ones' a capacity upgrade.) In my experience, they boast unmatched reliability, the WD Drive Diagnostic tool is simple and quite useful, they're easily changed out (I keep spares, always with at least a current C:\ clone), and the price is right. For my virtually all-business operation, the black series on SATA is more than amply fast, and the 7200rpm.(slower than Velociraptor) speed seems to keep them from beating themselves to death. (Yup - lost a Velociraptor early in its life, and steered clear of them ever since.) Better than Seagate, and much better customer service than Toshiba.

Cons: They're not perfect - once every several years, one seems to get tired.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent HD

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

Pros: Price, Warranty, Performance vs other WD hard drives.

Cons: Reads as 931 GB, but that's to be expected I suppose. Doesn't even come with one SATA cable.

Other than that, can't really complain

Other Thoughts: Bought this to put in my gaming PC to store video and sound files for my work in Adobe Premiere.

Ultimately I want to get a NAS system for my home/office, but local storage was the only option right now. So, i looked around and toiled on the decision.

I picked this HD because I have an older model of it and it has been Rock Solid reliable for me. I hope this one works out the same
