Experience: 4 Years

Pros

Price, performance and reliability
Cons
Not as fast as a SSD
Summary
I still use these in raid 0 in my main machine with a small SSD for my OS. I also bought one for my 2nd machine and it works like a charm.

Pros

-Still works
-Quick, no problems
-I can't hear it
Cons
None
Summary
It did what I expected it to do.
Enough storage for any basic computer user, and its snappy.

Experience: 5 Months

Pros

Fast. 5 year warranty. WD has great customer service.
Cons
None.
Summary
I used this drive for installing games on my main rig. Very fast load times and plenty of space. I accidently broke the sata data connector on the back of the drive and WD said they would replace it under warranty. I couldn't have been happier.

Pros

large capacity, fast, easy installation,reliable
Cons
none
Summary
I love this HD its fast and quite. Not a ssd fast, but still excellent. WD drives is all I have ever bought, and for good reason.

Experience: 5 Months

Pros

Reliable build quality
Cons
Limited storage
Summary
I stick with the Black series because somewhere along the line I think I read that this model has a higher MTBF rate than the others in their product line such as green and blue. I bought this smaller size because it was on sale to use as a backup drive. I ended up using it as a dual boot drive to boot Win7.

I dropped one about 4' to a hardwood floor while in an external SATA enclosure, and of course that was the end of it. So while perhaps not suitable to take to the battlefield, these generally seem reliable. This one has run for 5 months 24/7 as the machine seeds torrents, and no problems so far.

Pros

Fast, quiet and cool.
Cons
None
Summary
Bought this on sale. Been a great drive so far.
This drive is fast, quiet and cool.
Use this as a primary OS drive with Windows 7.
Great warranty from Western Digital, cannot go wrong with choosing this drive.

Experience: 2 Years

Pros

Fast, Quite, still works after 2 years
Cons
none
Summary
Have used these drives for OS, storage, and raid setups and have never had a single problem with them. The warranty is the main reason I go with WD every time and their support is second to none.

Experience: 1 Days

Pros

Fast, relatively quiet
Cons
none
Summary
I've bought 2 of these drives so far and I can't complain at all. Both make the same amount of "noise' and both work flawlessly.

Experience: 10 Days

Pros

Very quite and reliable
Cons
None so far
Summary
WD Black hard drives haven't steered me wrong yet. I buys WD blacks on a regular basis and they have been extremely reliable. Also got this on a price match for a great price

Guillaume_R

Experience: 2 Weeks

Pros

Reliable
Faster then average HDD
Cons
mechanical drive (not an SSD)
Summary
Bought this for my uncle's build as the main drive. Works like it needs to.
Only problem I have with this drive, it is not a Samsung Spinpoint which are, in my opinion based on experience and testbench, the best 7200 RPM hard drive. It's a shame NCIX doesn't have them in stock
