WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Faster than expected, very quiet, very cool running, lots of space.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Plugged it into an external case, only 2tb shows. Plugged directly into SATA port on desktop and see all 4tb. In W7 set to GPT, create and format a partition, put back into case and all is well. As others have stated, if you don't see the whole drive, it's not the drive's fault. In W7 it just works.

I'm pleasantly surprised at how cool and quiet this drive is. I have it in an external aluminum case that's very compact but has no ventilation. Other drives run 20-35 degrees C above ambient but this drive only gets to 10-11 degrees C above ambient, even after running a surface test for 7 hours and then copying 3Tb of data to it. And if the case didn't have an activity light, you'd never know the drive was running.

If you need 4Tb, I recommend this drive.

Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Just works, fairly fast. I actually had an older model WD drive fail last year and found their warranty process to be fast and easy.

Cons: Drive prices seem to be going up rapidly.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded a failing drive on a Dell system. No muss, no fuss, plug it in and go.

5 out of 5 eggs Win 7, what's not to like? 01/29/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros: Windows 7. Found updated drivers for every peripheral.

Cons: 150+ updates to download. Tries to sneak bing and silverlight into your system.

Other Thoughts: My bro-in-law was about to toss his 3GHz quad core dell workstation running Vista but I convinced him to upgrade to Win7. Took a day of continuous updates to get it up to present but now he's very happy with the result. The system is quite zippy even with a standard hdd for the OS and data.
