General Features

For Creative Professionals
When it comes to storing your creativity and digital portfolio, WD Black drives can be used to store large multimedia files that contain photos, videos, games, or applications and programs. With a WD Black drive, you get a combination of speed, capacity, and large cache sizes.
For Gamers
WD Black drives are also suited for gaming machines by offering large capacities to store a game's downloadable content (DLC) and large cache sizes, as well as helping to further maximize system performance when paired with an SSD. WD Black drives also include StableTrac technology for more accurate data tracking and to help reduce any impact due to vibrations for additional gaming hardware.
This WD Black drive is equipped with StableTrac technology by securing the motor shaft inside to increase stability and help reduce impact due to system-induced vibrations from other components. By stabilizing the platters inside, the drive is more accurate in tracking particular sectors during read and write operations, optimizing performance and reliability.
Increased DRAM Cache
This WD Black drive delivers high transfer speeds and read rates of your files with a 256MB DRAM cache. WD's Dynamic Cache technology improves caching algorithms in real time to allocate and optimize the cache between reads and writes. This movement of cache for read data helps to reduce congestion and increase overall performance.
Dual Processing
When it comes to processing power, more is always better, especially for loading games and large multimedia files. This WD Black drive features a dual-core processor that offers increased processing capabilities as compared to a single-core processor, helping to maximize drive performance for faster read and write speeds.

    WD WD6003FZBX Reviews

    6TB Black 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5- Internal HDD (OEM) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value  price/peformance Wanted to upgrade SAS RAID (two enclosures) from current 1TB drives.  Needed  8 HDDs.  The WD Black line of HDDs provides the rpm performance needed for RAID.  In my case, 6 TB was a good compromise for the $$. Since these were going to go into a SAS enclosure, I did not need the SATA cables normally included in retail kit (extra mounting screws would have been nice though) Installation was straight forward.  Ran RAID config tool for SAS RAID HBA, initialized/formatted the resulting volume. Drives are quiet, do not seem to run too hot (compared to the 1TB I replaced). Would definitely recommend if you want to upgrade from 1TB or smaller HDDs.  You significantly increase capacity and price is still reasonable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Windows 10 partitioning Apparently Windows 10 has a size limitation when partitioning large Hard Drives into sizes larger than 2 TB - Originally it was to be split 50/50, eventually the Hard Drive was split roughly  30/30/30 with a loss of approx. 20% (when you partition you always lose some space). I dont know why this approx. 2 TB limit is so. However, the drive is quick and agile, performance is much better than a plug-in drive (USB) with faster response time. If you only have one choice for a new physical hard drive - A Western Digital is hard to surpass.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Install and Fast Just as I expected, the 6TB black WD drives were easy to install and fast restoring data from the old drives (which were 4TB black WD drives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of image storage Western Digital are my go to hard drives.  I purchased four of these 6TB drives to use with disk carrier for backing up my LR images.  Fast and so far no problems.  My experience with WD disks has always been great.
