Pros
Well it runs - and seems to read ok. I run a drive scan and it shows nothing wrong.
Cons
Crunch, grind, ch, ch, chi...cruuuuunch
Summary
Noisiest hard drive I've ever owned. Probably wouldn't get another WD Black drive.

Pros
Fast and dependable HD, very good warranty.
Cons
Expensive.
Summary
Been using the Caviar Black in all the systems I assemble for many years now and they are great. I bought more than 30 of these in all formats (500, 640, 1TB, 2TB) and only had 1 failed after 2 years. It was replaced swiftly by WD who honoured their warranty without problems. I still got a 640 running from 2009. They are fast but a bit noisy. In gaming system I only install those for programs (with SSD for Windows).

Pros
Reliability * warranty * Fastest non-SSD speeds you'll get
Cons
The seeking activity is LOUD, do not be alarmed, it's not a defect (though it is somewhat of a design oversight).
Summary
So when I just got this I became paranoid that it was defective, as it made the "click click clclclclikc click" sound all the time. Turns out after extensive internet searching that this is an inherent thing with modern Caviar Black HDDs, where there is bare minimum acoustic management with the seeking, to maximize speed/reliability.

It took me about a month to get used to this noise though, but now it does not bother me anymore.

Past that, this Hard-drive is pretty snazzy.

Pros
Good speed
Not very noisy as a hard drive
Cons
Runs a bit hot
Summary
Bought it for my gaming rig, mostly for storing music and games as a secondary hard drive, very satisfied with the product, quick loading times for games. Will probably buy an additional one for RAID.
