06/05/11
Experience: 7 Days
Pros
- peak transfer rates of over 120 MB/s, sustained over 100 MB/s
- quiet, I was expecting the drive to be a lot louder
Cons
- compared to other HARD drives, absolutely none ;)
Summary
Great drive, transfer rates of over 100 MB/s with no problems, quick access time, and it's fairly quiet (which surprised me). This drive is actually quieter then my other Caviar Black (also a 640gb, but only the SATA-II model), and faster due to the new SATA-III controller. It does run a tad hotter, but never exceeds 35 C. Highly recommended drive.

Summary

Pros
good capacity
7200 rpm
Cons
could be quieter
Summary
bought it for a great price with PM, impressive value.

just a few dollars more than the 500GB version.

definitely get this line of WD black for your OS if you're not ready to step up for SSD.

Pros
5 years warranty
Same price and more cache than the 640gb sata2 (but sata3 brings you nothing in term of speed)
Cons
Not an SSD (great for stockage in raid though)
Summary
No hard drive is near capping the sata2 bandwidth but this one replace the sata2 black and is the same price with increase cache so why not.

Pros
Fast, stable
Cons
loud ( not to me, but may be for someone who likes it quiet)
Summary
So far so good, Bought 2 and had it raided. Running this with my i7 2600k. Its loud at times, but not distracting. Sata 2 would be just as good as well.

Pros
Very affordable for the WD Black series
Cons
Some increased noise compared to higher-end drives
Summary
Great drive for the price - only $0.30 more than the 500GB, so why not go for the 640GB?

Extremely fast and thus far reliable for the price point. Highly recommended for storage, RAID or OS.

Low price tag!
Very fast!
Cons
None
Summary
I am currently using 4 of these in raid 1+0 setup. These hard drives are ridiculously fast and offer a much better performance when compared to the previous generation. Excellent product!

Pros
SATA3 (didn't notice performance different to SATA2)
Cons
A bit loud over the 1TB black.
Summary
Have two in RAID0, partition it to keep OS, program, data organize. I am really scare to put anything on this RAID just afraid I might loose it if one hard drive fail. Ironic, that I use a slower drive more than RAID0 setup, knowing RAID0 is faster. Sound is a bit loud over the 1TB black not really bother me. Was a fan of WD, hard drive fail, switch to Seagate, now back to WD. LOL. Finger cross.
