2TB 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 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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Product The product is easy to fit and performs exactly as it should.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hard drive - from super supplier! Scan once again provided a wonderful purchase experience; can always be trusted! The WD Black drive has proved to be a great peformer so far. Was purchased as an exclusive gaming drive. Running very smoothly with not a single little glitch so far. Impressed by the fast read/write ability, and is proving a fantastic drive for the majority of my Steam games; no stuttering whatsoever, the drive is not a bottleneck with demanding usage as was my previous Segate hybrid drive which failed (literally) trying to do this job. The drive runs surprisingly cool. It's a little bit noiser than I'd choose, but a very small niggle given the terrific all round high quality perfomance it's providing. Highly recommended for all round gaming purposes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from seems fine so far appears to be very quick Have not had it long so can't comment on reliability. It is very noisy, however. As I have used it for the installation of my Windows operating system it is clicking and clacking away all the time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Drive Can't score it on Reliability just yet as it's still new and time will tell , Very easy to install and very quiet, I have a WD Blue which is a year old and still fast and quiet, when that needs replacing I will go for another WD Black. BIG Plus with Scan is the very safe packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Drives WD Black drives have always been my preferred choice of drive for aspects of my storage needs. When you pick one up, you can tell it's pedigree right away. The solid construction gives you confidence you made the right choice. Out of the 20+ drives I own, I have only ever had one failure, WD sorted that with a replacement in double quick time. My only tiny gripe with the 3.5" is they do tend to get very hot, so need good cooling.

Questions & Answers

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
Yes, it works fine on SATA II and you do not need to change anything. Clearly, it will not perform to maximum specification on SATA II as it is designed to run on SATA III.
