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.

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.

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.

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.

There were a couple of funny noises but I wasn't too worried first. Although the drive was recognized in the BIOS it didn't pass the WD diagnostics-software test. But I was still able to format and copy few files. After a system restart the BIOS warned me the hard-drive was faulty (see pic) and recommended to replace it. So I had to return it to Amazon. I think I shopped with cross-cable and got a refund confirmation by Amazon very quickly.

Firstly I have no issues with WD Black Hard Drives.

1) The HD supplied was an OEM Drive and NOT as pictured. I spoke with Western Digital and they said the drive shouldn't have been sold, unless in a computer. They recommended I return it for a refund.

2) The date of manufacture was November 2010, OVER 4 YEARS OLD !!!

3) I’m not even sure it was a WD Black drive. Usually the sticker states “Western Digital Black. Desktop Hard Drive”. This one just stated “Western Digital” and “Enterprise Storage”. The case was also physically very different to version pictured on Amazon.

I didn’t even open the sealed anti-static bag as I didn’t want to use a suspect product that’s been kicking around a warehouse for 4 years.

The drive itself is just what I wanted .But I was NOT at all happy purchasing it from Amazon.It arrived inside a small box sealed with a warning in Spanish that it was fragile.There was nothing else with it no warranty ,instructions or screws to fit it.The small box was inside standard Amazon packaging surrounded by plain paper packing.When it was handed to me by the postman I could feel it sliding about so you can imagine how it
moved around during transport.I guess that they are left over drives from PC manufacturers.I purchased the same drive for a pound more
at a well known electronic store on line,that arrived in a WD branded box which was sealed and well protected the box was covered in information about the drive and the fact that I was entitled to a free download of Acronis true image WD edition and how to get it.It also contained screws ,a warranty and installation details.
I'm no fool and I know how to work my way around a PC but I do think that if I'm paying nearly £100 for an item I deserve the full thing and not
some companies or persons left over.
