Pros
Fast, lots of space.
Cons
Price, it's more expensive than a Seagate.
Summary
Had this drive for 3 years, it's been working great.

Cons
For me the price is abit high but well it is the buyers decision to decide wether to buy or not.
Summary
I heard that this thing is not that great.but for more i really like it. I think it was what i wanted to be.

Pros
-Had my first one since 2008. I have a total of 5 of these since then, not a single one has given me any major issues
-Pretty fast for a 7200 rpm drive
-A very good buy for the money prior to the floods, especially during a sale
-5 year warranty
Cons
-With the advent of SSDs, there is no real reason to buy the fastest HDDs anymore
-They are not that quiet... out of 5 of these, I'd say that 2 or 3 them began to become louder over time, believe it or not
-IMO, there are better drives compared to these through Hitachi and Samsung in the similar price range. Blacks are no longer "king" in their arena
-One of them began to develop a bad sector issue after 2 years of use
Summary
If this were to be bought on sales price prior to the Thailand floods, then it would be a steal.

But I believe it is better to get a 2TB for this amount of money, even if it might not be a 7200rpm at all. And if you want a performance 7200rpm 1TB drive, there are better options out there from other brands. Though you might not get WD's 5 year warrant as a trade off (the only trade off that I'd consider to be serious).

Regardless, at the time of this review, this drive is massively overpriced for what you're getting, in part due to the floods.

Cons
None
Summary
Excellent price/performance ratio. One of the fastest 7200 RPM desktop drives you can get, especially at this price point.

Experience: 8 Months
Pros
Excellent transfer speed
Great Value

Cons
None
Summary
This drive has an excellent transfer speed and considerably low latency. Excellent deal for a 1TB $100 if you can get it for less that is just a bonus. Great Drive!

Experience: 2 Years
Pros
Cool, quiet, great performance
Cons
can be a little loud at times
Summary
I have purchased 3 of these over a 2 year peroid and I have never been dissapointed and I have encountered no failed drives. Great speed and can be a little loud at times but still quieter than many other 1Tb hard drives. No real difference between the 32mb cache and 64mb cache except the platter density.

Experience: 1 Years
Pros
fast, reliable, works fine in Raid 5
Cons
price when not in special?
Summary
I own 4 of these drives, using them in a Raid 5 on my FreeNas. None of them ever failed. They are fast, a bit hot but not too much, and they seem reliable. Would buy again!

Pros
Price, Quality, Warranty, Performance
Cons
None
Summary
Bought two of these to use in a RAID 0 array - they work perfectly. No issues, decent performance (although I always find that the comparable Seagate drive will always be faster).

They are a good buy with a very low failure rate - can't go wrong here.

Pros
Fast
Looks good
Quiet most of the time
Cons
Can get loud
Summary
Great for data, gaming, and installing on operating system! Data transfers decently fast, runs nice, and has plenty to offer! Seems reliable, fast, and nice and quiet most of the time. It comes in a basic package, and is simple and elegant. I love this drive, and would recommend it to anyone!

Comment: The Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB hard drive doesn’t look any different than any other 3.5? drive. It maintains the same form factor, and follows the same SATA connector standards. This means you can use this in a case or NAS box that has a standard SATA backplane. With all that in mind, we are p
