5 out of 5 eggs Great Price for Size, Speed, and Temp 12/16/2013

This review is from: WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX

Pros:

Great Price for Size, Speed, and Temp
140-150 MB/s Sequential Reads (Not a SSD speed, but better than USB 3.0)
Runs Cool, very cool compared to my other internal hard drives; 26 C verses three others @ 30 C. Running cool usually means it will last a long time as HEAT KILLS electronics...

Cons:

Not considered premiere WD like the Black version which carries a better warrantee (5 yr vrs 2yr) and is supposed to be better for gaming, but is about 15-20 percent more.

WD VelociRaptors are 4 times faster and 4 times more expensive

Other Thoughts:

I purchased this to install games on because I have a SSD Sata III Hard Drive for my Operating System. If this fails me before the warrantee is over, I'll be back, but so far I have had decent luck with WD (85% met or exceeded expectations) I ran a benchmark program on this drive with the below reflecting average results, so I am happy :)

G: Test :
Sequential Read : 155.737 MB/s
Sequential Write : 147.446 MB/s
