    My unluckiest hard drive ever

    This particular hard drive worked fine but literately stopped working 30 days after I purchased it. This hard drive literately stopped working last morning, tried to return it to the manufacturer only so I get a false message that the warranty has been void despite that it is still under a 5 year warranty, plus I have not opened the hard drive at all. I never came accross a brand new hard drive that came defective, and this is the first time I had to deal with such thing. Hard drive is no longer being detected by my computer's BIOS and I had to go as far as testing the same hard drive on other computers, both internally and externally with the help of an external SATA to USB cable, but hard drive both gets undetected by their BIOS or if using a Windows PC, it will detect it as a hard drive with 0 MB of space in it. Beware of this hard drive! If you want to buy this particular hard drive model, good luck with your hard drive because it seems to me that this model will likely come defective. I highly suggest you do your research and look for similar complaints for the same hard drive model before you even take my word. As far as I can remember, this is the unluckiest hard drive purchase I ever had.

    I had looked at buying a WD Black drive for quite a while. I own a 1TB WD Blue Drive but I finally ended up just buying a 1TB WD Black drive just to save some cash rather than pay for the higher cost of a 2TB WD Black Drive. I can't say I see too much difference in real world uses between the WD Blue vs the WD Black, such as what I mainly bought it for which is gaming. I would recommend a 1TB WD Blue Drive if you are looking into 1TB storage but otherwise the higher capacity WD Black drives are very worth the money, since WD Blue Drives above 1TB slow down to 5400 RPM meanwhile the WD Black Drives above 1TB retain their 7200 RPM.

    Worth the extra $$ over a Green

    I went with the Western Digital Black (performance edition) because of previous experiences with Green drives (this was replacing a Green drive that decided to bad-block its way into crashing completely), even though this particular drive was about $30 more. I am not disappointed. Once Windows 10 was installed, I was up and running with no issues, and it's been humming along well. I have 2 other Black (performance) drives in a RAID array on another system that are both about 5-6 years old and are still running at great speeds. Although not an SSD drive, I still am quite pleased with it. The only reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 on this product was that the first drive I got was bad. Best Buy replaced it with no hassle.

    Always owned WD hard drives. Never really had any issues outside of the normal issue of the die after years and years. I do like they now have more color coded ones so you can buy one based on what you will use your hard drive for. Great for a gamer like myself. And unlike a decade ago or so, you can now transfer everything "intact" from one WD drive to another. Saves alot of headaches for me!

    Western Digital BLACK 1TB Internal Hard Drive complete work horse desired to replace a solid state drive that would not load the Windows 10 Pro operating system and has had to sit and not be used until I was able to purchase this Best Buy local store and walk out with an on sale Drive to meet the rigors of Windows OS 10 Pro and move forward! Good machine now as a Good Hard Drive!

    Besides a SSD, this is one of the best drives you can buy for your computer. WD Black drives carry a 5 year warranty which is the best you can get for a mechanical drive. They have never let me down. It is becoming harder and harder to find mechanical drives with good warranties as SSDs become the mainstream. To get this on the daily deal from Best Buy was done without hesitation.

    I needed a second mechanical hard drive in my new computer that has a SSD built in. The 500 GB SSD was not enough - so I wanted a reasonable priced 7500 RPM drive with at least a 1TB capacity. This drive met all my needs and was in by budget range. Good warranty and I have had very good luck with Western Digital drives.

    Runs quiet, has decent speed for reading & writing data, and was reasonably priced. I'm using these to archive data using a pair of hard rive docks (one is an eSATA dock, the other is a USB 3.0 dock). Very happy with them, and have very good luck with Western Digital hard drives, going all he way back to the 1980.
