    I use this drive to edit Pro-Res Quick Time video files. The buyer be aware that this drive comes configured as a 6 Gb/s interface drive and requires a jumper to configure it as a 3 Gb/s drive. The jumper pin does not come with the drive, fortunately I had one in my junk box. So if you buy this drive and need it for a 3 Gb/s interface, insure you purchase of ask if B&H will supply you with the needed jumper.

    Nice drive when it works. I am trying it in a PowerMac dual G5, which has 2 hard drive bays.
    Sometimes the OS finds it, sometimes it doesn't.
    Either drive bay. The other hard drive in the system works OK in either location. Once I can get it recognized again, I will wipe it and return it.

        Comments about 1TB Caviar Black SATA Internal Hard Drive:

        Used it in a OWC enclosure, and have since migrated it inside a Mac Pro system. No complaints, but of course, it's hard to really evaluate a hard drive until a few years down the line. For what it's worth, it's working fine.

                      I bought this mainly to replace a 5 year-old 500 GB "green" drive that I was using as a work drive for files in Lightroom. (Program still runs from a 6 year-old WD Blue) The issue with that one was that it spun down after 8 seconds of non-access.
                      No issues installing on Win 7. Just assigned the imaging partition the same drive letter as before, copied the picture files back from an external and Lightroom recognized them on launch. Somewhat faster loading catalogue thumbnails, but the best part is not having to wait for it to spin back up everytime I save changes or open up a new image.
                      I haven't had it running long enough to comment on longevity. I does seem to be running a little warmer to touch. I may need to install a supplementary fan in the case further into the Summer.
                      Also the box contained a newer 64 MB cache model. (8X that of the drive I was useing.)

                        I bought the Drobo 5D kit and it came with these drives (with a small discount for the kit). So far so good. These drives have been quiet and reliable and work well with the Drobo out of the box.

                          This WD Black Caviar 1TB Hard Drive works as expected. Fast Read/Write times, lots of space and a good value. WD is my favorite brand for Hard Drives. The only reason I did not give 5 stars on this drive is that it makes more noise than the hard drive that I replaced (a 350GB that was very low on free space). I tried a plastic vibration isolation chassis though it still makes more noise than I would like. The noise sounds normal, crunching as data is read or written, just louder. I will try isolating the drive with some rubber mounts next, I expect this will solve this minor issue.

                            Hard drive failure is one of my biggest complaints about computers. I bought the western digital black series of hard drives because I have found western digital drive better than others and with a 5 year warranty if something does go wrong I know that western digital will make it right.

                                    This is my second WD Caviar Green 1TB drive. Just bought and installed this one with no problems. The other one has been running without a hiccup for more than two years. Excellent value.

                                        I've been using these hard drives for long term backup storage for 4 years now without any failures. And prices have begun to drop again after those nasty Thailand floods knocked out the manufacturers a couple years ago, so that's good.

                                          I bought two of these hard drives fro a Guardian Maximus raid enclosure. All went very well on installation. Seems like a great deal to me. The only reason I hesitate giving it 5 stars is that I can't speak to the life span, but so far so good.

                                          Installed a pair of these in a 0 RAID config in my new rig. Data transfers between these and the SSD is blazing fast!!!
                                          With a two year warranty I'm sitting pretty.

                                                    But when you order the SATA cable, you should not order the one with the square peg on the side (really!). The cable was not advertised as such.However, I just sawed the peg off and it worked fine - except that the side remaining piece blocks the fourth, final SATA connection on the Dell motherboard. Fortunately, I do not use it.
