WD BLACK SERIES WD2003FZEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: My first partition stays relatively fast when defragged often with Defraggler by Piriform, over 64 MB/s read speed according to Defraggler's benchmark, just after defragging.

Cons: Second partition is slow after getting close to half full - even when defragged often, which is somewhat OK if you are patient and all you do is download hardware and software upgrades and other like data where read - write speeds are not so important.

My second partition is a little over half full and Defraggler, from Piriform, benchmarks read speed on the second partition at an average of 4.6 MB/s after defragging with Defraggler [Windows 7 64bit] before defragging it averages below ~ 3.36 MB/s read speed - and I defrag fairly often [2 to 7 days].

I do not like WD's shifty 5 year warranty, where if you submit an RMA and get a second drive that only has a 90 day warranty for this drive.

Other Thoughts: To Jacob M. that gave a review on 9/8/2014:
If this drive is a second drive for installing and playing games from and raw video footage make a partition* no larger than 300GB. On that partition install and run games. Defrag often and it will remain very fast if you leave 45GB free [to allow room for Windows defrag - Microsoft demands 15% free for proper defrag, or you might not be able to defrag at all - I know this from, years ago, when I was a computer consultant to businesses. You would be surprised at how little businesses know regarding computers].
* The First partition will be 300GB

Part of my build [for the technical gurus out there]:
Power Supply: Corsair TX650M
CPU: Intel i5 3570K
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77X-D3H
RAM: 16GB GSkill CAS 9
SSD: Intel 335, 240GB
Hard Drive: single WD Black, partitioned [primarily for games, storage and back up]

Note: Other Information: Defraggler is much better than Windows defrag, however, it is VERY slow when doing a regular defrag on a slow drive or partition, it is very fast when doing a quick defrag, even on a slow drive or partition. I use regular [default] defrags. This is not an advertisement for Defraggler.

NOTE: I know that many people read these reviews when making a decision about what hard drive to purchase and I have written this with them in mind.

Creative Sound Blaster Z PCIe 116dB SNR Gaming Sound Card with 600ohm Headphone Amp and Beamforming Microphone
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Produces great sound - and for a great price. $60 this weekend. Limited but effective software bundle.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have had my Z since early 2013 and have had no problems.

As to those people that leave negative comments: 1. This is not the older, bad hardware that was sold before the Z series came out, please do not leave comments if you do not own this sound card. 2. Make sure you have a good power supply and motherboard and keep the motherboard drivers up to date.

My computer [in part]:
Windows 7
Intel i5-3570K [overclocked]
Gigabyte Z77X-D3H motherboard [2 1/2 years old]
G.Skill 1866 CAS 9 [16GB]
Corsair 650M power supply
Intel 240GB 335 series SSD
Western Digital Black 1TB HHD

I listen to music and play games on my computer and the sound is very good.
