5 out of 5 eggsGreat 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: Very fast for a hard drive. Works well in tandem with an SSD.

Cons: The only real con I see is that it was $70 for 1TB which isn't really an issue when considering it is a very fast hard drive.

Other Thoughts: This is kind of a case of 'you get what you pay for'. For the same price you could probably get a 2 TB hard drive, but it would not be nearly as fast and potentially not as reliable. I have a 750GB WD Black in another system that has been going for 5 years and it shows no signs of getting old and worn down. Some people say these drives are loud, but unless there are absolutely no fans running in your system, you shouldn't be able to notice it. I have a 5400 RPM Seagate drive that is louder. For $70 I think it is worth it if it is a main storage drive with programs and such on it. For a media storage drive I would recommend the WD RED for great reliability and massive storage for a lower cost.

5 out of 5 eggsPeace of mind

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

Pros: Great Value and Performance

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: None, anyone who tells you theirs a better drive for the price is full of it. I sell parts I believe in, these drives are excellent. Theirs a difference between this one and others, speed and reliability. I've probably sold about 40 of these so far with zero problems. You get what you pay for.

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.
