This is a very good drive indeed, and is the best performing of the regular WD drive line.

The 'Blue' series drives are the standard good drives for everyday use. (These are the only ones that come in both SATA 6 Gb/s and the older PATA 100 MB/s connection styles; all others are only SATA). The max. capacity for these is 1 TB.
The 'Green' drives are focused on low energy consumption and therefore have lowest spin ratings (making them slower) but keep very cool & quiet. These go all the way up to 6 TB.
The 'Purple' are designed for low spin use with ATA streaming & AllFrame technology designed with surveillance video footage recording in mind. These go up to 4 TB.
The 'Red' series drives are designed for RAID array systems. These go all the way up to 6 TB.
The 'Black' series are designed for the best performance for gamers and graphic artists with fast spin-rates, Vibration Control Technology (VCT) and Corruption Protection Technology (CPT) to prevent data loss in the case of power failure to the unit. These go up to 4 TB.

The only drive that WD make faster and better than the Black series is the VelociRapter series with the fastest spin cycles and it's own custom vibration and cooling bracket. These are more triple the price on a GB-by-GB cost ratio. See Western Digital Velociraptor - 1TB Desktop SATA Hard Drive - OEM

These "Black" drives are really the best of the regular series for high performance computing. I have mine installed as a bootable Windows OS main HDD, and it outperforms the previous drive, even though it was only a 200 GB drive.

a big thankyou to all those poor unfortunate people that had product issues due to poor packaging,amazon has heard you and rectified the problem.packaging was perfect,drive was delivered in super fast time time,no damage anywhere.
took the drive out of the two boxes that it arrived in,removed the two plastic packaging mounts from each end of the hdd,then opened and removed the anti-static bag,sofar so good.

fitted the wd black hdd into my corsair 260t case,connected the two leads,then switched the pc on.re-installed win 7,and all went well.the drive is super quiet,no rattles,whirring,tapping,vibration,just quiet.that was at 11:05 this morning.have run this drive now for 13hrs straight.done all the win 7 updates,installed ccleaner pro,to clean up the disk after installs,installed auslogic defrag and used it with no problems.used convertX to dvd4 to copy 2 films to dvd,and all went well.

am pleased to say that all is still well,and will at some point be buying two more from amazon.so dont loose faith,every business has its problems.atleast amazon puts it right. happy days.

I ordered two of these hard drives. They arrived through the post in a single cardboard wrapper with no padding whatsoever. Not surprisingly, when I ran the Western Digital diagnostic utility on them, one reported multiple errors.

I shall be returning the drives as I have no confidence that they have survived the trip through the post in such inadequate packaging.

Amazon sent me this hard-drive without proper packaging. In fact there was no packaging. Just the anti static.
Sure this hdd has good tolerance to hardship. It arrived from abroad and it worked! Hope it stays that way.

1 star, arrived damaged in the most appalling packaging (placed at the bottom of a cardboard box three times the size.. With paper on top???)
Sent it back

As for performance i have no idea, as it DID NOT WORK

Shame really as it would have been great with my new build.
WD drives are also some of the best in the market.

Amazon packaging for Hard Drives needs to be reviewed

The drive is as advertised, and WD drives are usually of excellent quality, so no worries there.

However, the packing it was shipped in was insufficient. A thinly padded envelope which was then loose in a larger box is not enough for a hard drive. I've run a full format and a surface test, and it all seems ok, but I suspect I was quite lucky.

I overlooked a lot of the comments saying that Amazon doesn't know how to package HDDs and ordered the WD Black for my new build.

Although delivery was quick, the packaging was very poor and I was surprised the HDD was working when I installed it. Or was it?
It took a day and a half for the HDD to develop a horrible grinding noise. At first it lasted for about 10-15 secs and it was happening twice a day. After a week it began happening every 15-30mins. The drive also was disappearing from "My Computer" although that could have been due to a loose connection.

I returned it for a refund and kudos to Amazon for their seamless return process, they make it so easy.
Overall, I will refrain myself from ordering HDDs from amazon for the time being. I will re-oder my HDD from another supplier.

2 HDDs in 2 weeks.

Amazon CANNOT package hard drives. The drives comes complete with lots of bad sectors and makes scratching noises when operating.

taping it to the inside of a box is not good enough for a hard drive.
