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

Pros: Worked well and didn't seem to have any hiccups

Cons: In a little over a week of using it it seems to have died. I sadly had moved all my data over to this HDD because I wouldn't be able to use my other PC for a few weeks and was planning on backing up once got home, a mistake. I will edit this review if it miraculously comes back to life or anything else happens. Not as good day for me.

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

Pros: My dads pc was getting 56mbs on an old 80g HD and I swapped this to help performance. He now gets 186mbs with a 3.2 duel processor running XP. He's not a heavy user but streaming video was better due to r/w access.

Cons: Not as fast as a SSD but still fast and wish I would have tested on my gaming pc to see what it would have peaked at.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drives

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

Pros: - Fast, if not the fastest 7200RPM drives you can get consumer level.
- Available in multiple sizes (1Tb, 2Tb, ect.)
- Reliable thus far

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I love these drives. I have multiple in my system and have installed them into many others. None so far have been DOA and I have not been informed of any needed warranty replacements. Speed, reliability, and size make these a great deal.

Other brands and models are cheaper, but they will not be as fast as these and maybe not as reliable.

Do yourself a favor, if you wish to have a system that feels very stable, cannot afford a good SSD, and are looking at that WD Blue for $49.99... save the extra $25 and grab this.

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

Pros: Very quiet
Fast
Five year warranty is a bonus

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: Replaced a four year old Seagate 500GB 7200 rpm SATA II. I assumed the old drive was failing due to how noisy it was whenever the drive was accessed. I chose this drive because both of my other drives are WD (4TB data drive and 2TB external) and I've been very satisfied with them. I went with the Black over the Blue mostly due to the extra three years on the warranty.

After installation, I used the free Acronis software from the WD website to clone my old drive and extend the partition. This part went more quickly than I expected (~30 mins, I think). I am very impressed with how quietly the drive runs. I don't think it's audible over the noise from my case fans, but it's possible that I just haven't noticed due to how much louder the Seagate was. The drive speed is noticeable as well. Boot time is much shorter, going from ~15 mins to under five minutes to be useable. I tested the performance loading levels in Portal 2; they seemed to load about twice as fast. Transferring a file (~1 GB) to my data drive was fast enough to throw off my workflow, since I used to switch to a different task while waiting for the copy procedure to complete.

Overall, I've been very pleased with this drive. I rarely tell my friends about the parts I put in my PC, but I made an exception for this.

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

Pros: Its fast, you will notice a slight difference on games.

Cons: I am with my second hard drive in RMA process. They work great but fail after a month. Bad sectors unable to repair boot to windows. I tried on a different PC same problem. Hope the third hard drive will do well... My older HD is keeping up.

5 out of 5 eggsWD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM

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

Pros: Very fast, quiet, and reliable. I bought one last year and just bought a second drive because of the great performance. I have been extremely pleased with the drive.

Cons: The WD Acronis True Image "FREE" version is very limited. It is worth no more than you pay for it.

Other Thoughts: It is a bare drive. No cables (SATA or power) are included.

4 out of 5 eggsGood drive

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

Pros: Installed and worked without any hiccups. Very quiet and it has a 5yr warranty.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It's a 1TB 7200rpm hard drive that works, is it faster than other 7200rpm hard drives??? You will notice a very slight bump in performance. Definitely worth paying a little more to get the longer warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely AMAZING for the price.

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

Pros: - Really fast game-loading times.
- Really fast reading times (6.0 GB/s)
- 1 TB storage
- Runs quiet, considering it's 7200 RPM
- Runs cool, doesn't heat up like some of those Kingston's..

Cons: No cons. :)

Other Thoughts: This is an amazing product for 100$ considering it's a Black series, you could not go wrong with this Hard Drive. Western Digital has never disappointed me, and I don't think will ever disappoint me with their hard drives.
