WD Black 1TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD1003FZEX

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: WD black 5 yr. warranty.. Shipping was super fast, ordered on thursday arrived on saturday. Was shipped in a harddrive specific package, rigid air bag and ESD protection, very nice. I did not intend this for an OS drive, just storage. Very quiet compared to the Samsung 500 gigs I had been using. Got this using a promo code, saved $14 bucks, very sweet!

Cons: Wouldn't show up in Windows Exploer, no surprise that. RMA? NOT!, ran it through a Low Level Format tool and took care of that. Remain calm, if you don't have the tool, Google the term and find one. If you refurb, salvage or piddle with this stuff as much as I do it's a must have. So save yourself some scratch and get a bit more technical.

Other Thoughts: Don't know wheath the Egg will let this pass, but, I got my LLFT from I have the free version, I believe I will get the paid one very shortly, (27mbs compare to 50mbs). As stated above, if you piddle with this stuff you need this in your software tool kit.

Pros: Simple, seems well built. Not sure about the hot swap, my asus would probably do it. However the paper work that comes with it says,"do not remove drive while running". So the next one I get will have a switch in line, probably not on the wireing that comes with it, but some where. That way you can use device manager when you want to change drives.

Cons: None as yet.

Other Thoughts: Thin Seagate drives seem to not want to install as easily as standard thickness drives like WD. And case's that are tooless on one side and have a pressure tab on the other like my Rosewill are a little tricky. Had to inset a little further than I wanted. A future case mod will take care of that. Time to dive into my salvage bin again. :)

Pros: Nice drive, WD Black, 5yr warranty.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Acronis WD edition worked great and fast cloneing my WD 320 to this drive.
