      WD is the way to go. This drive is super quiet, runs cool and way more reliable than the Seagate products. Best Buy packages hard drives right for transport. The price may be slightly more than competitors online, but at least you can count on getting a working drive by the time it gets to you. Sure it's not as fast as a SSD, but it's not an SSD.

      Thought this would be a good drive for storage. Cheap price. However, as others have stated, this drive is slow. Is this really a Black drive? I do not know. Reliability was also in question, as the Blue drives have crapped out on me with little use. I returned this drive and purchased an HGST Ultrastar.

      I like the rating system from WD on these drives. Green - light duty, blue - home PC, black - gaming PC or console, red - NAS and purple - security system. I chose this one as my C drive has been replaced twice over the years!

      The WD Black WD1003FZEX SATA internal hard drive is fast and dependable. I have always purchased Western Digital hard dives because of their high quality.

      I've owned all kinds of other brands of hard drives and none compare to WD. WD has the easiest warranty process if you ever need to use it. This drive is quick for a spinner and not loud. I only buy 7200 rpm drives.

      Not worth the extra dough.

      With the exception of the warranty, you won't see a difference between the WD blue drive and this one. The drive works fine, But choosing a black over a blue is like paying for an extended warranty. I'm a little bit dissapointed.

      When my drive started dying, I knew that WD would be the best choice. So I got the internal drive for my use and have no complaints about the product.

      Western Digital My Book 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Review
      External hard drives are great, especially for people who do not want to open their system up to add more storage.  They are also very useful for people whose main system is a laptop and adding extra internal storage is not an option.  WesternFull Review
