2 out of 5 eggsStopped functioning 4 months in

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

Pros: Worked really well while it lasted

Cons: Only lasted 4 months before I suddenly started having problems getting past windows start up screen. I used my phone to search online for any solutions and I read many posts suggesting to either reinstall my windows or run a CHKDSK. The one and only time I was finally able to pass the startup screen it took 20+ minutes to open up command prompt. I ran a CHKDSK in order to try and fix any issues. It ran for a whole week and still didn't finish. I didn't want to end it early in fear of ruining my data. But, I finally gave up by the 8th day and decided to try and reinstall windows. It took a day to reinstall windows and I was excited to finally have a computer again.... However, it wasn't able to pass the windows startup screen again. So I finally decided to use my warranty and perform an RMA. BUT their website wasn't working and I was not able to perform an RMA. I had to call their technical difficulties support line and explain the problem. They tried to perform the RMA on their end but there was some kind of internal error. They told me to call back the next day. So I did called them back, and they tried again and it still didn't work. They said there wasn't anything wrong with my info or my side and that there was an internal problem. SOOO they told me to call back the next day again. I called again and they said it still wasn't working. They told me that they would work on the problem themselves and call me back the next day. So I waited for a call back, but they never did. So I called them back the following day and they were finally able to get the RMA to go through. So for about 2 weeks I did not have a functional computer.

Other Thoughts: The only reason I did not give it a 1 star is because instead of choosing a different product, I'm still using the same one. But its mainly because I do not have spare cash laying around to purchase a new one and had to go through this ordeal of waiting just to have a functional one.

5 out of 5 eggsWorry Free

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

Pros: I buy these for my customers because at the end of the day I want them to have no problems and have peace of mind. I replace a lot of seagate drives when they fail with these.

Cons: None, if you have a problem contact Western Digital. They have a 5 year warranty.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for, most people get the cheapest drive and get stunned when they fail.

5 out of 5 eggsGood HHD

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

Pros: Good cost, high speed, reliable company, fun times.

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: I bought this to expand my hard drive storage space so that I had room specifically for Steam games and media files. Easy install and setup. Works very well for my purposes. If you're a little heavier with media, you may want to get a larger file.

3 out of 5 eggsCompared with Blue

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

Pros: Performs well, an excellent drive

Cons: Only performs marginally better than the "blue" drive with similar specs. I tested both the WD1003FZEX Black and the WD10EZEX Blue. Both drives have the same capacity at 1TB, same 7200 RPM, same 64MB Cache, and both interface with SATA-III at 6.0Gb/s. The Black however had some internal enhancements that increased it's access time slightly over the Blue.

Other Thoughts: Both drives are good, but compare them both and weigh your options.

5 out of 5 eggsMy favorite drive

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

Pros: Excellent drive for the money. Very reliable. Quiet. Fast.

Cons: absolutely none

Other Thoughts: HD tune reports 87.5 - 161.7 MB/sec, 134.5 MB/sec average.
I have been running WD Black 500GB & 1 TB drives for years in desktops & external enclosures with zero failures. "The best warranty is the one you'll never need."

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

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

Pros: Works as expected with zero issues, got my old system up and running after a bad PSU helped finish my old WD Black drive off.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: This is the second 1TB Black drive I've owned, the first was killed by a faulty power connector and finally done in by the failed PSU. Hopefully this one will last a while with the other problems being cured. Newegg got it to me fast and was well packaged in a bubble wrap case surrounded with air pillows. Best packaging I've seen from you yet, thanks for protecting my order from the Ace Ventura shipping company!
