2TB HDD

Pros: Great for a WD hard disk drive considering ive had problems in the past but so far so good (fingers crossed)!
So after 1 year still running and no problems with it at all

Cons: Extremely noisy but then again it is a western digital black series so it is super powerful!
Under 100% Load after owning for a year still runs strong but Read/Write speeds have decreacesed slightly but its still a 5 egg product IMO

Overall Review: I may buy a second one but it will be a WD Green or Blue 3-4TB
Honestly a definate recommendation for any1 with an older PC for best speeds on mechanical however would gear towards an SSD for a boot drive

Good within warranty period, turns to pumpkin soon afterwards

Pros: 7200 RPM, 64MB cache on a 2009 era drive

Cons: 75% failure over 6 years. While a high expectation, I've seen better from premium priced drives.

Overall Review: Bought four of these in 2010. After 6 years, two exhibit write delays/errors and register bad sectors upon scan. A third operates normally but fails SMART. The final one operates and indicates good in SMART. Ultimately, these drives served their purpose but just about exactly to minimum expectation. To my surprise 2 TB drives still commonly come up in deals emails so I guess people are still buying these capacities, and I am surprised a drive like this is still available for retail purchase. In late 2016, there are far better options. My biggest admonition would be, given the longevity issues, to not buy one of these used if you're attempting to keep an aging RAID array on life support.

Still Going

Pros: Ive had 2 of these drives since Sept 2010 and they have been around the world with me in my back pack and traveled across the US and they are still going. I am about out of room on them for my movies and such.

Cons: not 10TB

Overall Review: I can't wait for the 10TB drive to come out.

3 years & still going strong

Pros: WD reliability. Purchased this drive in March of 2011 & it's still going strong.

Cons: None, Period.

Overall Review: As I stated above, 3 years old & still going strong. This HDD is in a older rig that I upgrade/modify regularly. Initially the rig setup was, WD Velociraptor 300gb as primary HDD, WD Black 2tb as secondary HDD for games & frap videos. I recently added a SSD to this 4 year old rig as the OS drive & the WD Velociraptor for storing/installing games & the WD Black 2tb for frap videos. Pleased with the results.

I Promised Myself I Wouldn't Cry

Pros: I've had this drive for over three years now, with it being in constant operation for about 90% of that time, it hasn't missed a beat. That's saying something for a non-enterprise grade drive (though I hear these are pretty similar to the WD RE drives).

As an added bonus (actually the reason why I bought it), is because the WD Black drives are known for being fast, and it definitely lives up to that expectation.

Cons: A little pricey, and it runs kinda hot, but then again it is a 7200RPM drive.

Overall Review: I'm going to have to decommission this drive pretty soon, unfortunately, due to added space requirements, the fact that it's aging, SATA II (doesn't really matter for spinning platters though) and because you just can't really buy them anymore.

I'm going to be really sad to see it go; I ran my first torrents with this drive, it's been phenomenal to me since day one.

Not long lasting

Pros: Fast access speed. Great while they lasted.

Cons: These drives didn't last nearly as long as I felt they should. After only two years 2 out of the 3 drives I purchased show SMART status failure and cannot be written to properly.

Overall Review: I ran these drives on a linux server in a raid 5 setup. Perhaps they aren't designed for this type of usage, but they're storage drives... I expected better.

When they work they work, but...

Pros: They are quick when they work

Cons: We ordered 8 of these to begin with, and within a year we have had to RMA 5 of them. They are set in a raid configuration, and would either start throwing SMART errors and dropping from the raid, or they would just drop all together. We have had much better experiences with the WD2002FAEX drives. At first I thought it might have been a backplane or raid card issue, but testing the drives in other computers the drives just wouldn't hold up.

Overall Review: Western Digital has always had great support, but they have recently changed their RMA portal and it is horrible. I know that hard drives can fail but 5/8th of then within a year?
