Works great without issue

Pros: Works without issue as per my usual experience with Western Digital

Cons: None

Overall Review: Needed a larger replacement hard drive for my Acer Laptop. This one is the largest accepted by my old Acer and it has cache memory whereas my old one did not, so I have more fluidity in speed now.

Satisfied with purchase, but a little surprised...with Newegg

Pros: I have been building and buying computer components for about 20 years and I have always bought Western Digital hard drives. I have had no issues ever with the HD failing over the years

Cons: I received the product today, 6 June 2019., opened the package and was a little dismayed to see the Mfgr. date was 2 June 2018. Never happened before, never. The sold by and ship by was Newegg,.

Overall Review: I went to WD website and input the Serial # and it showed that the warranty expires 14 months from today. Newegg's website says 2 year warranty. I saw that others had this same issue, so I called WD. A rep came on the line within 1 minute. The rep told me what to do, a simple step. And after I did this, they would honor the 2 year warranty. #2ThumbsUp!!

At least it is a 1TB hard drive

Pros: Its a 1TB hard drive and seems to be working

Cons: This product is NOT new, and the one I received was not a WD Blue, it was an HGST (which is a Hitachi brand that WD bought out). It was already formatted and was sticky on the edges like it has been installed in another machine before.

Overall Review: I think I will spend the extra few dollars and order from somewhere where I know I will be getting a new hard drive.

WD should openly label "SMR" or "Archive" Drive

Pros: Good $/GB. Good tight package at 7mm up to 2TB. Reasonable power profile. Reliable manufacture. Good read speeds. Good for storing regularly read bulk data like videos.

Cons: It is a shingled magnetic recording (SMR) drive, but NOT ADVERTISED. SMR likes sequential data but not random access. Operating system logging, web browsers, email, and other examples create many random writes, small file writes, and small file moves. As a primary system drive, things can be slow.

Overall Review: Ideal for the "other drive" in hybrid SSD-HD computers. Either a SSD-HD hybrid laptop or HTPC. You spent $$$ for an NVMe SSD on the MB, so why spend more for the static storage. SMR drives are dense and excellent on the read direction. 128MB cache, which is necessary for the write-replace cycle, can be a huge win for reads. So if you just need a place to keep all your videos, photos, and stock art, then okay. Just don't do post production processing on the drive. Also okay for static storage NAS such as an HTPC doubling as a samba server to push mobile device backups to.

Hi Anonymous,

Thanks for the time reviewing our WD Blue 1TB HDD. Please note our WD Blue series of hard drives are designed for and intended as OEM replacement/upgrade capacity drives.

On the question, “WD should openly label "SMR" or "Archive" Drive”, Information on which of our drives use PMR vs SMR is not something that we typically provide to our customers. What we can tell you as an FYI most products shipping today are Conventional Recording (PMR). We began shipping SMR (Shingled Magnetic Recording) at the start of 2017.

PMR
Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR), uses a parallel track layout. By increasing TPI with SMR technology and decreasing the space between tracks, SMR offers tremendous potential for overall hard drive capacity gains.

SMR
Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) is a new hard drive technology that allows the tracks on a platter to be layered on top of each other, just like roof shingles on a house, to increase platter density or tracks per inch (TPI).

Refer to the link-
“Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR)”:
https://support.wdc.com/knowledgebase/answer.aspx?ID=3589&s=

SMR increases the capacity of a drive-by increasing the Arial density or adding more tracks per inch. There is little difference in the recording technology used and the performance for reads/writes. If you feel your drive is not operating optimally, we recommend running our Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows; or, testing a drive for problems with Disk Utility for Macs.

Small size big storage

Pros: Good Price for storage amount
Fairly quiet
Stays Cool
It’s been working reliably for about 6 months. Under very heavy usage it gets up to 40 degrees C, that’s good for the tiny box it’s crammed in. Under normal load the temp is around 32 degrees C.

Cons: No warranty with the version I got. It was a OEM version, but seller did give me a discount. I was unaware it was an OEM at time of purchase.

Overall Review: I bought this for expanded storage inside a media center PC. I did not purchase it for performance, but as a cost efficient storage of TV/Movies/recordings.

I have a second drive with the same base model # but they have different performance results. Both have 2018 production dates, and purchased at about the same time. During the test both hard drives had about the same amount of Data stored on them. I tested the all the drives using CrystalDiskMark:

WD blue 1tb (WD10SPZX-22Z10T1): Read 118MB/s, Write 111MB/s, 4GB Transfer to drive 104 MB/s (Sata III connection) (firmware 04.01A04)
WD Blue 1tb (WD10SPZX-24Z10T0): Read 95MB/s, Write 89MB/s, 4GB Transfer to drive 83 MB/s (Sata III connections) (firmware 01.01A01)
For comparison:
WD Red 6TB WD60EFRX-68L0BN1: Read 182 MB/s, Write 129 MB/s, 4GB Transfer to drive 174 MB/s (USB3 connection)
Samsung 860 Evo 258GB: Read 542 MB/s, Write 509 MB/s (Sata III connection)

For a 2.5” HDD this performance is good/average. Most 3.5” drives will be a little faster and SSD’s will be much faster, all depends on storage needs.

WD is the brand I trust most for HDD’s. I personally have found that 2.5” drives tend to go bad faster than full 3.5” drives, just something to consider for how the drive will be used.
