Rated 4 out of 5 by Konrad71 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.

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 Growler 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 Richard543 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!

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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RickWeb Solid hard Drive, well made, quality.
I bought this drive to run my hyper-v machines off on my local computer. Performance is brilliant for physical disk drive, the only thing that lets it down is it can be quite noise when doing excessive reading & writing for day to day use as main drive or secondary drive it would be fine.
