Never buying WD again.

Pros: Worked for a couple months

Cons: Crashes and doesnt work anymore.

Other Thoughts: I used to be the biggest WD fanboy. I bought a 160 gig hdd 7 or 8 years ago and it never gave me any issues until the bearings went out (which is acceptable after 7-8 years of heavy use). This drive started crashing and giving me the blue screen two months after using it. I haven had nothing but trouble with this drive and after looking at other reviews Im not the only one turning their back on WD. They just dont make quality drives like they used to.

Excellent

Pros: These "Black" WD drives are the best 7200 rpm drives I've owned. I have several caviar black 500 GB drives that have been up and running continuously error-free in a webserver for over a year + several in my main gaming/work PC which also runs 24/7. This 1T I just got fired right up with no bad sectors and nothing unusual. I expect this drive will also serve well.

Cons: none

Great for a mechanical drive

Pros: In the age of SSD's, this HDD fares pretty well. I'm using it for storage & games in my new build (and my SSD for Windows 8).

Load times have actually surprised me, as it is much faster than my old 7200rpm drive. It does its job.

Cons: It's not an SSD? ;)

Trouble free for 2 years +

Pros: I have had my 1TB Western Digital drive for over two years now. It was a wise decision to get it.

Cons: There have been no cons with this drive. Just make sure you plug in both the power and SATA cables. ;-)

Other Thoughts: I like Western Digital. I am still using a 120GB WD drive I bought twelve years as the boot drive in another computer. Isn't it great to get hard drives that are made to last? You can grow old together.

-- Bad Idea -- Mail order Hard Drives

Pros: Retail Boxed WD Caviar Black drive.
Decent warranty.
Drive says it has a 64MB cache even though the order was for a 32MB cache version.

Cons: DOA. This drive was "bricked" when I received it. Not recognized by any of the 4 computers at my home. Does not show up in the BIOS nor in Disk Manager.

Rightly or wrongly, I have concluded that it was dead and I do not know why.

Other Thoughts: This drive arrived in the retail box but was just sliding around in another Newegg box with no packing whatsoever.

I have had DOA problems with a few of the bare drives I've purchased in the past, so this time I bought the retail, Black version and had it shipped to me via (the more costly) FEDEX.

Despite all this, the drive still arrived dead and the box wasn't even smashed. From this point forward I resolve to never buy another spinner by mailorder again. I know that UPS treats these boxes like footballs, and suspect that every other carrier does the same. It's just not worth it for a delta of $20.

Picked up a drive cash and carry at BB. It worked...
