Firstly the drive itself. In my experience you'll nearly always get a slight hum / vibration when a HDD spins at anything over 5400rpm, as far as 7200rpm drives go, this is a quiet one. How your drive is attached to your chassis / case will have a big bearing on what reaches your ear.

The wake up times are very good when compared to a Caviar Green, so it's good for an everyday storage drive for say downloads etc as there's very little pause when waking after the drive been put to sleep to save power etc, say 1-2 seconds compared to say 6 with a Green. All in all, I definitely recommend this drive, especially for the price. Obviously the only thing that matches an SSD is an SSD but as far as transfer speeds go, I was getting around 120-130mb/sec sustained when moving large files across internal mechanical drives.

Now why only 3 stars? Well I went to register the drive and check the warranty. I'd had the drive about 2 days, ran the serial and it came back as having about 5 months remaining out of the 24 months you get with a new Blue drive! I queried this with Western Digital, they revealed what I already suspected... I had been sold a recertified drive. These are basically knackered drives that Western Digital then refurbish and put back out, usually for resellers to flog at a discounted rate. The fact they only give them 6 months warranty says allot. The fact that the seller puts them out as a new drive also says allot.

So the moral is, make sure when buying that your drive is DISPATCHED FROM AND SOLD BY AMAZON themselves and not a third party seller. Even if it's fulfilled by Amazon it can still be sold by a third party.

I returned the drive for a refund and purchased a new drive from Amazon themselves, this time with a full warranty.

I have 2 of these 1TB drives now, after buying another one recently, and have yet to have any problems with them.

I currently run a SSD for booting and programs that are resource heavy, and 2 of these 1TB hard drives for general storage. As I said before, I have 2 of these drives now because the price is affordable for the amount of storage on them and they are a reliable brand. They are package in an anti-static bag and fuss free packaging.

You will require a SATA connection cable in order to connect this as they are not supplied - this is my only gripe.

If you are looking for an affordable, fuss free storage solution this might be a good option for you.

Just installed this product - worth noting that it doesn't come with any of the cabling that you may need. At the very least, I would recommend picking up an inexpensive SATA data cable and also check the cables that came with your PSU to ensure you have the necessary power cables. In my PC, I picked up a little extension power cable to save me having to re-arrange all my cabling and move other HDDs and SSDs about.

I use SSDs for most things on my main gaming PC - I bought this drive to act as another backup for everything on my cloud storage. All my photos are digital and now that I am a parent with loads of baby photos, a loss of data would really be very upsetting and unfortunate. I now store everything on a cloud storage service, an SSD and on this HDD so I would hope that I am reasonably covered in the event that I lose a drive, or even if my PC was ever stolen.

From looking at other reviews - this drive has a reputation for being dependable and perfect for my needs. Only time will tell but I have had good experience with WD products in the past. Installation was a breeze, and this is coming from a guy who only built his first PC last Summer. The price was quite good for the storage, and the price had actually decreased since I added it to my wishlist. Arguably, I probably could have gone for a lower spec model (green?) because I am only using this for storage but my needs may change in future and I may require a faster disc speed, so that's also something to consider.

Bought 1 of these early in 2016 and it's been working fine.

Bought two in October 2016 and one of them died within a few weeks. It spins up fine but Windows can't detect it, and HD Sentinel has shown over 200 bad sectors.

Two out of three isn't bad, but it's the first drive that's gone bad on me in over 20 years owning a PC. Not particularly impressed tbh, especially at the size of 6TB. WD's support is awful too, if you want the driver replaced they tend to send out refurbs.

I was in two minds to contact Amazon but really it's a warrenty thing, and i've no intention of WD obtaining my drive and refurbishing it to someone else with all my data on it.

The disk comes without instructions so you need to know how to install a one before you start. However installation is really easy once you know how. I have had this disk for a month without any problems at all. I appreciated another reviewer's note of caution about refurbished disks being sold as new so checked first the design of the label on the disk itself and then checked the serial number on the Weston website to find when the guarentee period started. All was well, but worth checking for peace of mind.
