NoTouch Ramp Load Technology

The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.

Dynamic Cache

WD's dynamic caching algorithm improves performance in real time by optimizing cache allocation between reads and writes. For example, if there's an overwhelming percentage of read traffic as opposed to write traffic, the drive automatically allocates more cache for read data, which reduces congestion and improves overall drive performance.

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 4.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by It was exactly right for me I was helped via email on 2 occasions and i found the replies prompt and in language that i could understand being a bit thick about computers. I would make Scan my first port of call before buying from anyone else in the future. 14 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product I was looking for a new HDD as a replacement for a dying one in my 5 years old laptop. Despite it's not SSD it fastened my computer. Boot ( Windows 7 64 bit ) maybe about 14 seconds. 12 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ps3 replacement Bought to replace harddrive in ps3 system. Playstation working again, so happy with choice 12 February 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Really Good Product Just Faulty The product is faulty and had bad sectors i came to this conclusion after i received an error when it started up. 28 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Did what it said on the side of the tin... Ok, so I am a computer guy that replaces his fair share of hard drives. And I try and get the best value/quality I can. With hard drives it is really difficult. Everybody and his dog has an opinion on what make of hard drive has lasted them ten years/failed in 3months - so take all our views with a bag o salt. But this drive has the longest industry warranty (not that this is worth anything if you do loose all your unbacked up precious data to a hdd failure - but that would be the lack of backup, not the hard drive's fault) so, it fitted, it worked, it was fairly quiet. some reviews of this product I read said it ran hot. although I only tested for a couple of hours (windows updates & basic new install) - this one did NOT run hot. perfectly happy, returned to customer, who was happy with the long warranty. job done. oh, and Scan - great, local (north manc) business that delivers. their show rooms are cool also, if you are in the area. PS - i did quite a lot of research into hard drive failure rates, I always do. Only reason this product did NOT get 5stars was that I need to see if it is still working ok in 5years time! 10 July 2014
