Hard Drive Performance

Everyday Performance

Smart Hard Drive Technology

Solid Reliability

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.

WD BLACK Features


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.

Right Choice

StableTrac Technology
WD BLACK 2TB 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.

2TB WD Black WD2003FZEX, 3.5" HDD, SATA III - 6Gb/s, 7200rpm, 2ms, 64MB Cache is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do you like crunchy bearings? Makes a noise that can only be described as the sounding like the flywheel of the devil's lawnmower when the platter's spin down on shutdown. Didn't fill me with confidence for its mechanical longevity so i returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2TB WD Black WD2003FZEX, 3.5 HDD Sata 111 As a keen photographer I purchased one of the original Drobo devices, (4 bay model - started off with just 1 drive), from Scan in Bolton back in November 2008, with the intention of backing up my images once a week directly from my iMac computer. It was important to me that the drives should be of the upmost reliability. Personally, I have always used WD drives since the original purchase on recommendation from Scan as a reliable item for my needs. This has proved over time, to have been a wise choice, having purchased 2 more 1TB WD drives over the years. A red warning light had just lit up to inform me that I was running out of space. I had no hesitation contacting scan again and they recommended the latest one for me - 2TB Black WD2003FZEX 3.5 Sata 111. Duly purchased, installed, up and running as per spec and bags more space for the future. What more can I say !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid,Reliable it just works I bought this to replace an ageing WD Cavier SE drive which gave up the ghost after more than 10yrs use. So I hope this will last just as long if not longer. Faster and with a larger transfer rate, this should keep me going for the foreseeable future. I've tried other HD, but Western Digitial is my go-to solution. Service from SCAN was prompt as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent HDD I have been using WD Blacks and Reds for years in my personal PC and NAS setup and they have never failed. It's on the epxensive side but I trust the brand and I trust the performance. Nothing more to say other than you can't go wrong with this choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Possibly the best HD drive I have owned Terrific. Bought 2 of them so have a nice 4TB of storage. Surprisingly silent. Well pleased.
Date published: 2016-10-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Product The product is easy to fit and performs exactly as it should.
Date published: 2016-04-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Noisy but quick The drive replaced a defunct WD green product. The unit was a direct swap and as such was easy to fit. It has proved refreshingly fast in operation if somewhat noisier than the broken drive it replaced. I can forgive this because of the performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast & Big Around the same price as an SSD but SSD has 250GB this has 2 TB.(At the time of this review) It has great performance, lots of room, it's not the most quiet hard drive but I guess you can't have everything.

Any accessories included?

Does this drive come with a sata cable, screws etc?
Asked by: Sully
Sorry for the delay. The drive only comes with 4 screws to hold it into the computer case drive bay. No cables supplied.

Does this product work with SATA II?

I intend to install this drive in an old Windows XP system with SATA II with a view to moving it into a newer PC later. The question is whether it will work with SATA II and what I have to do to make it work, if anything.
Asked by: KenD
SATA is designed to be backwards compatible, so yes, it will work.
