Price tag, capacity Extremely loud, HD Tune benchmark shows my WD Black 750 sata2 drive to be about ten-15% quicker. I reinstalled sata3 drivers, set drive to ahci, and it still would not touch my sata2 drives in functionality. Perhaps it's my motherboard, but I feel I got a poor a single. Way noisier than my other WD Blacks. This one may be headed for rma.

I already have this model in my present method when I placed the order. In addition, I also have an older Maxtor Sata2 Hdd. I ran several benchmarks and WD came out on leading (convincingly, too!) in every single category. As for each day usage, you can see a distinction when transferring Substantial files and unzipping pants (whoops, files!)!It's a real very operator and a excellent Bomb for the buck! No mail order bride came with it. So naturally no one brought the Sata3 cable. Hey, Newegg employee! Yeah, you! I know you're reading this. Just wanna say, "Hellwo!"And I would like to make a single suggestion. Feel you can pack additional packing peanuts (or whatever they are referred to as) on best of the package inside the box? So far each and every package I have received has a lot more of the packing peanuts on the bottom.So?You guys have been great, but the UPS delivery men and women is one more story. The guy rang my door bell a couple of instances before banging on the door a couple of a lot more and DROPPED the package to the ground. Yes, it was LOUD sufficient to hear via the closed door that my valuable WD HDD was dropped!

unable to comment Mine is DOA. The shipment got stuck in transit mainly because of the weather so that may have some bearing. It is a bare drivem Newegg packed it in bubble wrapping in a tight box, which was once more in a box with other items. This must have been adequate so I feel the DOA much more most likely QC at WD.

It appears really rapidly. Runs cool at heavy load. ྻC max so far in my case, just in a tray in front of the case intake, no specific drive fans. That's pushing a few 15GB files to a sata3. drive for a strain test)I'm probably not going to do any actual benchmarking, it's just replacing a WD blue as my main OS drive. I'd say my OS load time is almost certainly at least 5 or ten seconds faster over the blue. None yet. Time will tell for reliability, certainly. Noise is NOT an issue worth taking eggs off for, barely louder than my WD blue was. A lot of individuals talk about the noise of this drive. Utter nonsense. First off, it's a functionality drive. No, it's not as quiet as a green drive. Possibly analysis what you're purchasing before you buy it? In a efficiency drive like this, AAM (Acoustic Audio Management) is often disabled. That's the result in of most of the acoustic difference amongst this and, say, a large WD Caviar Green. If noise is that a lot of an issue to you, you could always re-enable it.Also, everyone that complains that a lot about how loud it is could have a poor mounting answer in their case. My drive is snug behind two layers of rubber shock absorbers in my new Lian-Li case, and I can barely hear it more than the noise from my GPU fan, even grinding files at max speed. For the record, my SPL meter reads 46 db when placed in front of my case. That's mostly noise from my case fans. The difficult drive spinning does not make a distinction of additional than +/- 2db, which is very easily within margin for error.

Quick and dependable with simple installation. Noisy. I was expecting it to be louder than the 1TB WD Caviar Green 5400rpm I replaced, but not this noisy. I also seriously didn't see considerably of a difference in speed going from 5400 to 7200rpm. Save your funds, get a cheap 5400 and get an SSD when they come down in value.

For a SATA drive, this issue is rapid. Enormous improvements in sequential speed more than earlier generation challenging drives. Western Digital quality/reliability. A good selection if you are hunting for speed and expense savings. Price tag to storage size ratio is good. 64MB cache. SATA three. 5 year warranty. A tad noisy at occasions, but tolerable. It's tough going back to spinning media right after making use of SSD drives in my laptop. But this drive's speed did impress me over older generation spinning really hard drives. Sequential burst speed it fantastic on SATA 2. Probably see slightly higher sequential burst speed on SATA three ports.

Really quickly. 7200rpm and 64mb cache. I have two of these in a raid . Sequential read of 180mb/s. Burst about 200mb/s. Noise. Its been about four days, and now they make the clunking noise each when in a when for the duration of HDD access. Not extremely loud, just annoying. Turning up the fan on the graphics card hides it. IMO fan noise is less annoying. If they fail, or overall performance decreases i'll create a new critique. Becoming 7200rpm drives, you can't genuinely count on much speed difference if any over 3gb/s drives. NO disk drives will need the quicker interface. Also, i knew WD black drives aren't meant for raid but nonetheless done it anyway, i hope they don't fail.

QuickCost-effectiveWorked This drive is really loud. It could be a performance drive, but I ought to not be capable to hear it clearly more than 2 case fans and the CPU fan full-throttled. Other individuals have mentioned that if you are operating a functionality machine you won't be capable to hear it more than all of the cooling. This might or might not be true, but in my case it was the loudest component.

Quick, big cache, 3 yr warranty. It was on sale and I had a discount code so I purchased additional drive than I needed. Yes, it is noisy. I don't thoughts the noise of this drive at all, although it would irritate those who appreciate a quiet Computer. I like motorcycles and diesels and get pleasure from the sound of a machine operating, if you don't there are much quieter drives obtainable in the WD Green and Blue lines.Subtracted one egg for the reason that this drive is replacing a WD Blue WD6400AAKS that failed right after just 15 months. I anticipate much better longevity from WD drives. SATA 6.0Gb/s for a mechanical really hard drive is like obtaining a V8 installed on a ten speed bicycle, your never ever going to knowledge the maximum performance.

It's quick and it doesn't price considerably. It was very good whilst it worked. I noticed the grinding noise folks talked about, didn't think as well much of it even though. Nevertheless, following possessing this in my desktop for a small more than a month I began acquiring disk read errors causing my Pc to crash. Now it's about a 50኎ shot on whether my Computer will actually boot up or just sit in limbo waiting for a bootable device to be connected. And even when it doe commence, it has to run the disk verify tool, AND it's slowed down the Computer and particular programs will just completely quit functioning until I reinstall them. A real pain and a huge disappointment immediately after spending ์ on something I anticipated to last longer than a month and a half. Exactly where's the high quality in products these days? 30 days for ์ implies I spent Ū a day just to drop every little thing.

Good in theory. A little noisy but accepatble. Uncomplicated install and apparently steady. Major fan of WD goods, was lured by SATA three Ɩ. Gbps) and 64 MB cache. Not rapidly. Didn't count on 10K RPM or SSD speeds but I am not impressed. Unsure if this is a really hard drive problem or a motherboard problem but my new brand name SATA three compliant motherboard and this drive aren't performing at the speeds expected - it is acting like an IDE. My Windows 7 Expertise is 5.9 based on drive overall performance alone - all other scores are ɳ.1! Possibly this is a case where the BIOS forces it to use IDE but this is a SATA three board with most recent BIOS flashed just before the drive was installed.

Exceptional drives. I'm working with them in a Raid ) setting. Rapid, silent and therefore far spinning as anticipated. What can I say - Sata six Gb/s - 64 cache - not as rapidly as SSD's but fast adequate and substantially, much more affordable. A really great acquire. Arrived wrapped in bubbles inside a good secure box. Not like the old days. I was hesitant on acquiring becasue of previous practical experience with Newegg packaging of there disk drives. They did an outstanding job in the shipping depatment this time!! Great perform Newegg!!!

worked out of box, no troubles whatsoever, cant complain.got 10 dollars off simply because the listed 500GB drive wasnt in stock, so got this upgrade for free! woohoo! Sata 6.! worth it.. right!? idk. new rig for the wife, her new mobo supports sata 3, so why not? "futureproofing" I guess? yeah what ever.. its the finest we could price range so she got it. WEI score of five.9. She promises to price range in another 1 soon for a "magical" raid setup. Im certain itll be more quickly, woohoo and all that. All in all I cant complain its a good drive. worth it? constantly! bragging rights!
