Customer Reviews of Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA 3 Gb/s 32 MB Cache 7200RPM Desktop Internal Hard Drive - OEM/Bare
Outstanding drive and oustanding service from Buy.11/24/2009
I think this review will be more for the superior service of Buy.com than the drive itself. I've had nothing but success with WD drives and as a Windows System Engineer, we use nothing but WD drives. Solid, dependable drives with great warranties and service. Something I've not had with other drives. Buy.com is where this purchase excelled. Drive arrived 3 days from date of order and packaging was great. Neither of which have I received from ZipZoomFly or Newegg or Amazon. Notifications were sent regarding payment, shipping and tracking and I had no worries at all. I will definately be a repeat customer of Buy.com (already am!) as they have set the standard for what on-line purchasing whould be.
The WD 1T Caviar Black is a work horse that far surpasses the Green in performance and endurance. Excellent value, great service and timely delievry. These 3 replace Segate 750's, one crashed and all my data was lost. I have 4 other WD's that I have been using very much for the past 6 years and still working fine.
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS Hard Drive5/18/2009
this drive is fast and should be very reliable (WD warranty is 5 years)- I like the fact it has bearing at both end and uloads the heads - nice and not to forget it's one TB - I hope WD comes out with 2TB Black drive - they do have the green 2 TB but it's only 5400RPM
Western Digital Internal Hard Drive 1T5/10/2009
This was a great buy the installation and formatting was a snap, just do not buy the SATA one side right angle connector what you need is 18" both side straight, this will eliminate take trip to the store and waste of resources. Very good
Worked well in my Mac. I installed this, formatted it (couple of hours) and backed up my original drive onto it. Then removed the original, swapped in the Terabyte, and have had no trouble at all. Love the 5 yr warranty.
What more do you want?4/19/2009
I always buy WD and have yet to be disappointed. I used this drive to upgrade my external storage. I had a 250gig drive in a Max4 enclosure. I popped that out and popped this in for a huge increased in storage space. Formatted it and I haven't had a single complain in a month. Like someone else on here wrote, you basically can't get better performance than this unless you go for a Raptor or solid state drive...and if that's what you're looking for then chances are you don't need storage and 1tb of it. For a storage drive this performance is excellent.
Great drive for the money.4/15/2009
This is a great drive for the money. If you need better performance look drives w/fewer platters like the new Seagate. Otherwsie, the only other issue that I have is w/Buy.com. One of the pictures that they have illustrating the product is one of the product in retail packaging. That's very missleading & something of a lie. It is not retail product. That's one of the reasons I bought from Buy.com was to get the retail product. That was my only qualm.
so far so good4/12/2009
It is working good so far and very quiet. Quick and easy installation. Good value and has 5 year warranty. Deliverd really fast.
Works well as secondary drive3/25/2009
The drive itself is great and works well. The only thing I knock off a point for is that it didn't come with a SATA cable or any other documentation. It was just the sealed drive in a box. Installation was quick and easy and took me a couple hours for Windows to format it for use. I pretty much use it for backing up media (mp3,video,pictures) but it has plenty of space and seems quite fast. I haven't put it through many tests but I don't anticipate any issues
Doesn't get any easier than this to boost your storage. WD makes good products. This drive has the best specs of all the drives that are 1TB in size. Also has the 5 year warranty but hopefully won't have to use it.
this drive has all the best specs - I like the idea of bearings on both ends off the spindel shaft - the fact that it unloads the heads and has a 5 year warranty (if you don't buy a OEM version)- my drive worked first time out of the box and is FAST who would have thought a few years ago you could buy a 1TB drive for a little over a 100$ - I wouldn't buy a lot of the 1TB drives for 99$ - spend a little more for this one - dam just a very few months ago this and the 750 drive where close to 200$ - why buy a 300 or 400 gig for 80$ when you can buy a 5 year warrantied 1 TB drive - PS my main drive is a 10K RPM 300 VelociRaptor - but this drive is also most as fast
Great Drive with a 5-year warranty2/7/2009
I like Western Digital HDDs. Even though my WD 80 crashed years ago (OEM came with my Dell) I have had good luck with WD. I trust the company and their reputation. I also like the support they provide for their products.
First one was a dud, second one worked fine1/24/2009
The first one worked but was EXTREMELY slow. I tried a full format but stopped it after 8 hours and only 20% progress. I returned it and got a second copy which formatted quickly (for a 1 TB drive) and has worked fine.
