This review is from: Western Digital Black - 3.5 inch 1TB Desktop SATA Hard Drive - OEM (Personal Computers)
I bought this to do a new OS install and did a lot of agonising over whether to get this or the Seagate Barracuda, which has twice the capacity and may be a little faster.
In the end, I read so many reviews and forum posts by people saying their Barracuda had failed after just a few days or a month that I decided that this is a much better bet. I've always gone Western Digital in builds, and they've never let me down yet. So I would recommend this. I've had no problems with it, which for an HDD is about as high praise as one can give, really...
