Rated 5 out of 5 by BarwickGreen Quick to install, quick to use
Bought as an upgrade to the 1TB version, swapping the drive was quick and easy and it is plenty fast enough for my use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stu2000 Performance & reliability.
Purchased to use as a data drive. I was looking for a balance of good performance and reliability. A 5 year warranty and years of personal experience offers the peace of mind I wanted - most people have had a bad experience with one manufacturer or another but for me WD have proven to be the most reliable. Performance is one of the highest and meets my needs at this price point. No problems with the service received from Scan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JustJames Excellent, fast hard drive; however it's very noisy.
I've been using this hard drive for a couple weeks now, purely for my vast Steam library. I have the green variant of this which I use for other media but I decided to get this one for games due to the increased speed. I have found that this hard drive can be very noisy, making loud scratching noises that made me at first wonder if the hard drive was faulty; after running diagnostics I found it had no issues, it was just loud.
This hasn't been a particular issue for me since when I'm running games off it the volume drowns out the noise from the hard drive so I can't hear it anyway. And by the way, the WD Green HDD is extremely quiet, so if you don't mind a slightly slower hard drive that might be more suited for your needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EddyB 3TB WD WD3003FZEX Black
WD drives are darn good: that's the only make that I buy when ordering drives, having had loads of experience with HDDs generally. And after studying specs and blogs for some time, too.
But even I made a mistake: Windows 7 does not recognise any drive over 2.2TB! OK, I should have got the 2TB version (which would have made it the third one in my desktop) - but that's no big deal.
You bet I am, especially with Scan Computers whose service and VFM I cannot fault.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lee2014 Fast hard drive
In terms of speed and capacity this drive is perfect for my intended use of uncompressed High Definition video recording direct to disk. It works well for this purpose, and can be used in recording, and later transcoding several hours of video with no dropped frames.
