I've been using WD Black drives quite a bit in the last couple of years. Never have any issues with them, seem to be good strong and fast drives. I have 3X500 GB WD Black's in my machine now and wanted to just use one 2 TB instead.
While transferring files off of my old drives and on to the 2TB using an external drive bay (eSATA), I noticed the 2 TB Black got pretty hot. Also this drive is fairly loud when being accessed.
In terms of non-SSD's, the WD Caviar Black is probably one the of the best performing HDD around and also has exceptional quality. I've used lots of WD hard drives over the years and never had an issue.
Cela fait 2 mois que j'ai acheté ici se disque rigide. Il est très bon pour la rapidité de l'accès à mes fichiers de travail et extrèmement efficace. Je m'attendait à ce qu'il soit bruiyant, mais non il est très silencieux. Pour les jeux il est le meilleur pour un bon rendement d'exécution et d'accès au fichiers, j'ai gagné de beaucoup sur les FPS (frame per second) affiché dans tous mes jeux. Mon seul point négatif c'est son prix, il est très dispendieux, mais c'est le prix à payer pour avoir de la qualité.
I had quite the history with WD lately. I have always been a customer of theirs. More than a year now, I have had two 1TB blacks running in RAID0. No issues what-so-ever except that these bad boys are LOUD * knock on wood *. Then I wanted a drive for storage and went with their Green line of drives. Worst idea ever. Granted, they are fast, cheap, and quiet for what they are (bulk storage drives) but I don't know if I just were unlucky or something, but the first failed after 300 hours and the replacement failed too after 30 hours. WD RMA service was GOOD and helped me throughout the entire process. They even paid for the return and sent me a black drive of the same capacity instead. Meanwhile I bought another one from NCIX this time with Express coverage (price matched to 149.79 dollars) to add some data redundancy. It's been a month now and everything is running as it should.
To sum up : Black drives are THE REAL DEAL (although they ARE louder than what you'd normally expect and a little bit pricier). The latest green drives are ABSOLUTE garbage. Fortunately, WD have shown that they care about their customers and that alone should drive you to do business with them.
Excellent product. It was a great price and was delivered the next day. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting a good deal on lots of space. Also, all my programs and my media collection have no problems.
