            Comments about 1TB WD Caviar Black 3.5" SATA Internal Hard Drive:

            Copied over my entire drive from a dying Seagate 4+ years old. Took all the copy over painlessly to become the new primary boot from my iMac. Runs VERY cool! However does not plug into the iMac heat sync (only reason for a star loss). So I have to use an app to manage the fan speed. Barely needs the fan, while copying at high speed it was cool to the touch!

                    What can I say? It's a hard drive from Western Digital. They make high quality consumer and business class hard drives. This drive is power efficient and conservatively priced. Buy 5 and put them in a RAID 5 and the slow RPM will not even become noticeable

                        Comments about 1TB WD Caviar Green 3.5" SATA Internal Hard Drive:

                        In an age of SSDs, HDDs no longer need screamingly fast performance (they cannot compete). Instead, quiet performance is preferred.

                        The WD10EZRX is possibly the quietest 3.5" hard drive in production (the quietest I found after substantial research). Oddly enough, it's significantly quieter than all the other WD Green drives; in fact, it's quieter than their "Red" line as well.

                        With my computer under my desk, I never hear seek noise. If I stick my head under my desk and listen specifically for it, I can hear a very soft seek noise when there is drive activity, but it is subtle and pleasant, not annoying and clicking. And it is quiet.

                        Meanwhile, I've had two of these drives running for a long time now with no problems whatsoever, and good performance from both. Since I do not run programs on them (that's a job for my SSD), but only store data (photos, videos, music), they are more than fast enough to serve up information as quickly as I ask for it. Backups to another one do not test my impatience at all.

                        In short, this is an excellent drive that deserves praise and recognition even beyond the other drives in the exact same model line (since it is rated for even quieter performance). I do not know why it beats those other drives (and every other 3.5" drive I researched), but beat them it does, and very satisfactorily.
