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.

Fast Hard Drive

Nice capacity, reads-writes is fast. Reasonably priced.

Will not buy again

I purchased this drive to replace a 6-year-old Seagate Barracuda drive that was still running great but is now too small. I switched to WD this time on the basis of both price and reports that showed WD offering better long-term reliability these days. (My own experience with external drives agrees with those reports.) However....I hate this new drive. The noise level is awful!! Other reviewers complained that this drive was noisy, but I took a chance. I don't mind clicks and clunks when I access files -- that's the drive doing it's job. However, this drive has two problems: It clicks loudly every 5 seconds, even when idle; and worse yet, it makes a loud whirring/rubbing sound the entire time it's spinning. My two Seagate drives in this system were completely inaudible over the system fans, but this new drive drowns out everything around it by a large margin. Worse yet, there are high-frequency components to the whirring that grate on my nerves, but which the engineers at WD apparently can't even hear (or they would never have released this product). I was planning to upgrade my other Seagate Barracuda soon, too, given that it is also 6 years old. Needless to say, I'll be replacing that one with a Seagate rather than another WD. My biggest regret with this new drive is that the 5-year warranty means I can't justify replacing it anytime soon.

I have many hard drives (nearly 70) both in service and retired on the shelf in archival cases. I have found WD Black drives are not only fast, but the most reliable in my application. Black drives employ a data structure amenable for both storage and RAID applications.

So far so good

I am in the process of replacing a bunch of HGST drives for my Synology NAS which are starting to show signs of age. I now have 3 of these and about ready to get one more. They are quieter and run cooler than the old HGST drives they are replacing. B&H always superlative service and super good with delivery etc. Of course can't be upset until a drive prematurely fails but so far so good. Will buy more, would highly recommend this drive and B&H

Easy installation and immediately recognized by my computer, fast speed for a mechanical hard drive, between 190 and 200 mb/s. Very satisfied with my purchase and the impeccable B&H service as usual.

Quiet, fast and reasonably priced. What more could you ask for. The 2TB WD Black that I was replacing worked flawlessly for 6 years. I expect the same from this one.

Needs to be pulled from the shelves...

The hard drive was so noisy I had to disconnect it just so I could think. I feel like an idiot now for not taking the most recent reviews seriously. I've used computers with windows 3.1 that had quieter hard drives than this one. Not an understatement! This hard drive is not even worth it when its on sale. The 5 star reviews is a scam! Do not take them seriously. The current batch as of March 2022 is bad DO NOT BUY!

Asked by: Turki
you will need a SATA data cable and you should look at the power supply's cables not already in use for a SATA style power connector, if there is not one handy you can get a molex to dual sata adapter since there is almost always a left over molex !

Photo shows SKU WD2003FZEX but SKU shown in post heading is WDBSLA0020HNC-NRSN; which SKU is this actually for?
Asked by: MICHAEL
The MFR # is confusing. I purchased the 4TB version of this drive in November 2019. B&H product page and the box both said MFR #WDBSLA0040HNC-NRSN. The actual 4TB drive inside was the WD4005FZBX, which is the current WD Black 4TB offering. The current 2TB WD Black is WD2003FZEX which matches the answer below. Yes, the box was black and white.
