Pros: 5 year warranty

Cons: You need to use the 5 year warranty

Overall Review: I just returned my third WD Black drive for read/write failures in the last couple of years. The Black drives are far from bullet proof. Even with backed up data, you still have to pull the drive and pay to send it back.

Super loud 12/2/2019 1:18:46 PM

Pros: It has an extreme amount of space and seems extremely fast for an HDD.

Cons: Lound clunking sound straight of the box and the drive was shipped with plenty of packing protection.

Overall Review: I love Western Digital and their hard drives. I have a WD Blue from many years ago and it's still going strong. This one has me a little worried, though. It has a clunking sound straight out of the box that has me a little worried. I've read a lot about how noisy the drive is so I'll be running a number of tests on it and will be give it a few days to see if I need to return it or not.

Hi James E.,

Thanks for your interest in the WD Black Performance Internal hard drive; your feedback is always appreciated. The 'noise' heard is due to a feature used to prevent disturbances in media lube due to prolonged dwelling at a single location. During normal drive operation, type and volume of noise is dependent on whether the is drive performing a read/write operation or idle with the heads parked. It is important to recognize which noises indicate trouble or normal drive operation.

"How To Tell If The Noise or Sound An Internal Drive Makes is Normal"
https://support-en.wd.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16309

Best practice is to run diagnostics with Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows when a drive does not perform as expected or is behaving abnormally. We have placed a few helpful links below providing more information for your convenience.

Bump.......Bump.......Bump 11/22/2019 11:56:06 AM

Cons: This is the first time out of a dozen WD Black that I've had a problem with. It has a steady rhythmic "BUMP" sound every 5-10 seconds. It, like a faucet dripping at night, drove be crazy. Had to take it out and replace it.

Overall Review: Only WD product I've ever had a problem with. Its a shame too...I had a lot of expectation (and investment) in this product.

Hi Michael B.,

We regret hearing about your experience with WD Hard disk drive and appreciate your time for providing the feedback. Current drive technology dictates that some noise will occur during normal drive operation. The type and volume of noise are dependent on whether the are drive performing a read/write operation or idle with the heads parked. It is important to recognize which noises indicate trouble or normal drive operation.

In order to isolate the cause of the drive failure, it is recommended to connect the drive as secondary storage via SATA port to the computer and check the drive for any damage or defects. The Best practice is to run diagnostics with Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows when a drive does not perform as expected or is behaving abnormally. We have placed a few helpful links below providing more information for your convenience.

If the test is unfortunately inconclusive and you just purchased the drive then you should be able to return it to the place of purchase. However, if you are past their return policy, you can create an RMA through WD and replace the drive under warranty if necessary.

Best Drives For Gamer's 11/14/2019 7:21:18 AM

Pros: Pros:
Very good drive
Excellent quality
Good Price
No issues at all

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I really recommend getting this drive cause every time I've bought drives larger then 1T After about a year they start showing signs of (Bad Sector Count) and (Uncorrectable Sector Count) and when that happens it makes you worry that you might lose your files the next time you start your computer.
