1TB WD BLACK is Smarter than the Average Drive

When High-end components are added to performance and workstation PC’s they more than likely omit tiny vibrations and that can reduce the precision and performance of your hard drive and even the best chassis on the market can’t always stop this. The WD BLACK hard drives feature Vibration Control Technology (VCT) which allows the disks inside the drive to adapt to any problems or vibration conditions, that are inside your case, resulting in much higher data accuracy, performance and reliability over time, so for gamers this means you can game harder, faster and longer.

Industry-Leading Warranty

Every WD BLACK drive is backed by an industry leading 5-year limited warranty. Compared to standard hard drives such as WD BLUE, WD BLACK hard drives pass more strenuous and aggressive internal testing over a longer period of time.

StableTrac Technology

WD BLACK 1TB drive is fitted with StableTrac Technology. This secures the motor shaft inside the hard drive to increase reliability and help reduce impact due to system-induced vibrations from other components. By stabilizing the platters inside, WD Black drives result in more accurate tracking in a particular sector during read and write operations, optimizing performance and reliability.

Dual-Core Processing

The WD Black drive features a dual-core processor that offers twice the processing capability as a standard single-core processor to maximize drive performance, especially for loading games or large multimedia files.

Serial ATA, or SATA, is a relatively new storage technology that is now being adopted in computers. It is the successor to Parallel ATA. SATA allows for faster transfers between the hard disk and the system, uses thinner cables and is easier to physically install

1TB WD Black WD1003FZEX, 3.5" HDD, SATA III - 6Gb/s, 7200rpm, 64MB Cache is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent hard drive for archiving Photos etc I have bought many of these drives over the past 15 years and they have performed faultlessly for long periods, passing the WD diagnostic tests every time, even after prolonged usage. BUT This recent model was, in my view, inadequately packaged, merely sitting in a large cardboard box and free to move about. My previous WD hard discs had been individually packaged in a purpose-built cardboard box or more often in foam-lined cardboard box. I had misgivings about its integrity so performed the WD diagnostic tests and it passed. When I reported the poor packaging to SCAN they replied that they felt the less positive packaging was adequate with only a low percentage failure rate. My view is that failure due to transport should be zero percent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the sweet spot (Feb 2017) Bought this as it felt like the sweet spot between quality, speed and price. So far, it's performed faultlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems quiet and reliable so far Bought for an old PC, gives good performance and seems to run smooth and quiet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good fast drive Odd to say the drive is good as the first unit worked for a whole day with no issues then sounded like a monkey rattling a sack of wallnuts during shut-down. The drive had failed and would not run again. Scan's replacement system worked flawlessly and the replacement drive has worked perfectly. It's relatively quiet, fast and runs quite cool. My main reason for going back to a conventional drive is that the last two solid state drives lasted about 12 months then became very unreliable and eventually died. Hopefully this drive will give provide the best of both worlds, we will see.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2 Bought, 1 Died Bought two of these puppies for my new rig, named one Moon and one Nova. They're very good quality drives, my old rig has a 12 year old WD drive and still is powering on through! Moon's doing great, silent and running perfectly Nova died after 4 days. She started off smooth but began to make occasional clicking sounds (more than just disk reading), and became unaccessable with "SMART Bad" status, and then on day 5 she fell over. She will be missed. Don't let this put you off though. Sometimes drives fail, that's life. Getting another to replace the 2nd.

Yes it will; we did exactly that on a previous occasion for our home media centre :)
