1 out of 5 eggsWD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

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

Pros: I have used WD drives in many builds over the years and this is the first one that has apparently failed. At the moment, there are no pro's

Cons: Does not want to format. used the WD tools with no luck will have to RMA and hope for the best!

Other Thoughts: This minor problem in no way will cause me to change to another drive. the 1st time in more than 10yrs. is no enough to "Rattle" my confidence in WD. Great drives, now I'll find out about customer service!

2 out of 5 eggsHard Drive Failure after 5 Months

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

Pros: Very large and affordable hard drive. No trouble installing or setting it up.

Cons: Hard drive failed in 5 months. Purchased in early Nov and it died in early April.

Other Thoughts: I went into this knowing that cheaper HD tend to fail faster, but I bought Western Digital over other companies because they were rated at a lower failure rate. Judging from the other reviews, perhaps I was unlucky.

1 out of 5 eggsDied in just a few hours

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

Pros: Price, storage and the supposed reliability of the WD Black line of drives

Cons: Lack of reliability.

Other Thoughts: With in a few hours of installation this 1 GB drive died. For a highly reliable drive, my experience is contra to that. So its making its way back to WD for replacement.

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

Pros: Fast, does the job that its intended to do, not much of a noticeable difference when loading graphics or games like they specify.

Cons: A little over a year now and the hard drive is already failing, failed the SMART test and has been making clicking noises.

5 out of 5 eggsRunning Smooth

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

Pros: Using this as a "back up" drive to my OS installed SSD. I have used WD "Black" Series drives over the years, and if you get a good one, you are set for a long time. This particular 1 TB drive was only a few dollars more then the 500 GB version, so it was well worth it. I think there is real value in these WD drives.

Cons: No real cons with this purchase, but do yourself a favor, and if you get a new one, make sure you test it on your computer with the WD Lifeguard Software, to make sure it passes all SMART testing. That way you can send it back. WD manufactured a bunch of bad units some 3 or 4 years ago, and it seemed 1 out of 2 drives was defective. This particular purchase tested fine, and is running well.

Other Thoughts: I think these are still solid, fast, and dependable disk drives to use at home or at work. It is still a valid choice to use to run your Operating System, but if you are now used to an SSD, you will miss the speed. I think these drives are still killer though, for any kind of storage application.
