yet another happy customer

i shouldnt think this needs another 5* review, but its getting one anyway.

put simply great hard drive, if it makes any noise i havent been able to hear it. the only thing i could possibly mention is i can't read the messages on loading screens any more, they dont last long enough...

Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA 6G

Very Loud

Nice drive, works well and is fast. Though its very loud! Looking to replace this already as I need it to be quite. Will be nice for a storage drive though.

Very Nice Drive

Great HDD, got two of these and a Vertex 3 SDD, The SSD has my progs and I have my DOCS / Music / Games and Videos on the Caviars, When playing online I load / spawn just as quick as someone with SSD, the one with the games is in the SATA 3 port! Very quite and fast, these replaced my raptors. 5*

This thing is a rocket!

Using one of these for data (OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD for boot), and it beats the SSD in sequential read/write performance (TWICE as fast).

Thats because it's using the Sata III port on the Gigabyte P67A-UD4. About to buy another and RAID-0 them, 800 read, 400 write here we come.

At this price, absolute bargin.

I only ever buy WD drives also, 100% reliable over the years.

Best storage drive

I had decided to change all the drives in my PC and to get an SSD (OCZ Vertex 2E 120GB) for my OS, programs and most-played games. I therefore need a storage HDD and this was my first and only choice.

I read reviews around the Internet and this particular HDD offered the best speed and features (1TB capacity, SATA-III support and massive 64MB cache). I've got it configured with two 500GB partitions - one for backups and another for extra space for the system (e.g. more games or temporary storage of downloads).

The speed of this HDD is amazing - it makes copying files between my SSD and HDD a pleasure and that's not even using SATA-III on it (yet!). I can't comment on the noise as my PC has an overkill of fans that drown out any drive noise.

A very reliable, fast and feature-packed HDD for primary (if you don't use an SSD) or storage - all this for a great price and great OcUK service. Buy it now! :)

Very fast Drive, performance is excellent. I may just be fussy but it is rather noisy, much louder then my previous drive, but if that doesn't bother you then it is a great choice of drive!

Craig Sparkes 2011-01-04


as stated on the product description - this drive works well in multi drive setups - I`ve read elsewhere that there are actually problems when trying to raid this drive. Hope I`m wrong

Excellent Value and Speed

Put this, along side a 120GB SSD drive in my new i7 build. They make an excellent pair, especially if they're both using SATA3, with the SSD as your system drive and this as the main storage.

Jamie 2010-10-04


Stunningly good drive. For the price, it's an awesome buy, and the performance keeps up too! Well worth it!

Christian D'Amico 2010-05-05

Best Value For Money

Ive seen lately that WD released new Raptor lines of hdd's up to 640gb if i can recall.
Well this new black loaded with 64mb cache owns in every benchmark the older 300GB velociraptor that i have.
If you have a sata3 port on your mobo, and want a very fast reliable HDD sto store and load your games and apps this is the best one you could you as a secondary one.
Primary for the OS an SSD would be the best 60-80GB one ;)
In CrystalDiskMark you can easily get read speeds up to 130MB/s ...

Stephhan 2010-04-14


Very fast drive i am getting about 150mb/s read and write from this. Very stable, and well built, seems very solid.

Great hardrive, well worth the money.
