1 out of 5 eggsWD warranty is horrid on Black Drives

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

Pros: Worked for a few years.

Cons: Drive failed in a mirror. WD shipped wrong replacement drive that was the wrong size and model. Original drive was a 3Gb, replacement was a 6Gb that would not work at more than 1.5Gb, even with jumper on the drive to force it. They said that they would ship me another drive in 4 days and ship it overnight. It never happened and I got no email telling me that there was a problem. I called back over a week later and was told that I would have to wait indefinitely for a correct replacement. It has already been 19 days. They have my original drive and will not fix it. They said that they do not remanufacture drives. However, the wrong replacement drive they shipped me has a remanufactured sticker on it. The replacement drive only has a 5 month warranty and it is useless to me. Completely unacceptable customer service and warranty.

Other Thoughts: All hard drive manufacturers should stock replacements throughout the warranty period. Inventory is not rocket science. I can't be the first person this has happened to. They should already have a plan for when they do not have a drive. They could have sent a matched pair of native 3Gb drives and cloning software to clone my good mirror. I then could have sent back the good drive. Sending me a larger drive with technology that my motherboard does not support is not doing me a favor. It is aggravating and poor customer service. I will not be purchasing WD drives in the future. I need real support and service.

1 out of 5 eggsNO 5 YEAR WARRANTY

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

Pros: 1TB Black Drive - when it works, it's great.

Cons: I bought this drive 2 years ago and in less than a year it failed and they replaced it with a "recertified" drive with a limited warranty. Now this replacement "recertified" drive has failed also. Where is this mythical 5 year warranty?

Other Thoughts: A five year warranty is a five year warranty, I don't care how many times they have to replace a defective drive. I buy about 300 drives a year and this "slight of hand" keeps happening. Time to reconsider who I give my business to.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for low-cost build

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

Pros: — SILENT -- you cannot hear anything over even quiet pc case fans.
— OS (win7/linux dual) boots in ~15 sec to desktop after POST
— It's not a garbage Seagate Barracuda ;)

Cons: — Not quite as good a value as some Hitachi drives, but that's really picking insignificant nits

Other Thoughts: Just can't justify SSD yet for low-cost gamebox, 6Gb SATA is plenty fast enough for a $1K roll-your-own. I put the most into a decent mobo and the new EVGA GTX 970, haven't regretted it one bit. This 1TB drive is more than enough for a low-cost high-perf gaming box.

5 out of 5 eggsWD Black: 7 years young.

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

Pros: Purchased from New Egg, bubble wrapped December 2008. Replaced 250GB Seagate that was good but a little slow. The 1TB "Black" breathed new life into a 2005 HP Pavilion Media Center with dual core CPU (that's as high as it got then). FAST! So quick I found SSD unnecessary. Have cold booted to desktop (Win XP SP3) in 49 sec and less. Wear fitness has maxxed out every parameter yet performance is still 100% per Acronis Diagnostics. WD warranty is EXCELLENT: they offered to exchange it at 4yrs 9 mos. Heavy Steam and Counterstrike user: I've done 10hrs straight, drive was 99F (37C). I'm buying another now so I can transfer the OS and use the old one for data storage. Never felt impatient with this dual channel drive with simultaneous read and write throughput that could push a dual core CPU. Excellent, fast, no delay, no waiting. Highly recommend.

Cons: Its getting old, time for the easy slot.

Other Thoughts: If you are a gamer, the WD combination Black drive with a 120GB SSD looks very interesting. One slot, two drives! But you won't be disappointed with just the WD Black.
