This drive is quiet, and fast for a platter drive. If your WD black is noisy, (As some have complained) then the drive is defective, you have a junk computer case, or the drive is not mounted securely.

This drive replaced my mothers aging Hitachi 5400 rpm drive, which was a really slow. This drive is fantastic! Really quick for a platter drive, that 64 MB cache makes a difference! Solid state drives are still on the expensive side, so I ordered the WD Black as an alternative. This drive does not have the speed of an SSD, but it is still a very good choice.


none so far

Other Thoughts:

WD has a tool to completely transfer your old hard drive to your new Western digital hard drive. With the tool you wont have to re-install anything! Use the link below, or go to WD support page to download.
