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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by great hdd excellent hard drive from western digital , 5 year warranty, buy it. 11 May 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. 06 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Caddie yet This is the third caddie I have bought & without doubt the best. Stylish design practical features such as being able to insert a drive without dismantling the caddie. LED on the front cover indicates power & drive activity. black cool anodized aluminium well made & included PSU. if you need a SATA USB3 Caddie this is the one . 04 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quick reliable HDD Already have a couple of these in my current gaming system so thought I would update my brothers PC. Fresh install of Windows 10, its super quick, low load times with great speed. 11 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great for gaming nice piece of kit good price and delivery was very quick ,ideal large storage base for extra games too 19 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A1 Sertvice fast service, good value, excellent advice from the help desk 13 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Replacement for a 5 year old 750GB WD Black SATA II Drive My told WD 750GB Black drive was getting on a bit, making loud noises under heavy load and losing its speed, so thought it's time for an upgrade on that drive. Picked this up, and while the higher price tag over drives of similar space, the drive is very fast in terms of hard drives. Data copies at a very nice and consistent speed, and under load it runs very quiet, not much more to say for a hard drive! It's used as my main programs/games drive after my SSD, and intensive games like ARMA 3 and GTA 5 don't skip a beat. 12 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Items in good or and delivery quick The items arrived in good order and are working reliably. The order was dispatched and delivered in record time. Definitely a good supplier 27 June 2015
