5TB 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 5TB 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 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by wd allways a good choice but what color wd black a nice size drive for the price good warranty and fast 15 May 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by A very good, quiet drive, but I did have issues First off, let me say this is a very good drive. Fast, loads of space, and despite what a few people have said elsewhere, quiet. Seriously, if you think this drive is noisy you must be leading a monastic existence. Setup was a doddle, and I've shipped a whole load of files, large and small, to it without a hitch - read/write access is very fast and consistent. However,.... after about a week and a half I did have problems with my whole system. Fault was eventually traced to this drive bugging out and effectively 'disappearing' from the system, but causing faults for everything else SATA-related on the system. Removal of the drive removed the fault, so got it swapped out, no questions, with Scan (very pleased!). The replacement was just as easy to setup and I've now been running the substitute for circa 3+ months. I've deliberately waited before posting this review after having the problems with the first drive, but I'm happy to say I've not had any problem with the new one. So much so, I've actually bought a second one, so will be looking to RAID the pair of them shortly. With any piece of IT kit you occasionally get a lemon. The drive is very good, and if you do get problems, Scan have an excellent replacement policy. 25 February 2016
