    WD WDBSLA0020HNC-NRSN reviews

    2TB Desktop Performance Caviar Black HDD Retail Kit (WD2003FZEX) (Retail Packaging) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from They get too hot! I have no complaints about their performance, but they get very hot. Even when operating them in open air, with a fan running, you will see that they get very hot. If you want to put them inside a computer, you better have fans blowing directly onto the drives. I wouldn't recommend putting them in a chassis that doesn't have fans blowing (or sucking) air directly onto the hard drives. The total power consumption, based on the rating on the drive, shouldn't be more than 10W. But the drives feel like they are burning lot more power!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best warranty, the most reliable hdd SSDs are great but still too pricey per gig to hold your photos or to act as a backup drive. The black WD hdds give the best performance of any reasonably priced drive and have the best warranties, 5 years from the manufacturer. I find that WD drives last basically forever barring physical accidents. An interesting datapoint- Google data centers use ordinary hdds for a lot of their storage and one brand of drive, I read, has a much lower failure rate than others. They won't say who the manufacturer is, but I have to believe it's WD. You don't buy an hdd for speed, at least once you've gotten used to ssd speeds, you buy it to not crash, and in this these drives trully excel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock solod performance with a great warranty I have been using WD Black desktop drives across two desktops for data storage for several years. I currently have 8 in use. In additon to great performace they are backed by a 5-year warranty, which is the best in this class of drives. All drives, regardless of brand, may (and likely will) fail at some point in time. WD's no-nonense system for replacement makes this drive a great choice. You will pay more than you will for some of their other varieties, but in terms of overall performance, you do get what you pay for. I am not a fan of so-called green drives, which go to sleep when not in use. This can be an issue in situations of heavy use, where instant acess is required at all times.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sweet spot in the WD Black series drives Price will always be the most important factor in our purchase decisions. The 2 terabyte WD Black drive is the sweet spot of all the drives as it has an acceptable amount of space (1.8T realistically available) and a great medium price point. But don't forget what else you get with this, faster than average speeds and a FIVE YEAR WARRANTY. Western digital is pretty much saying this drive will not fail you anytime soon. Above all else we need our drives to work and be reliable, and after 5 years we can switch out to new drives for peace of mind. Great price, honestly good speeds, lots of space, very satisfied with my purchase. I use it for gaming and music production (live recording and playback). No issues. It does make normal traditional HD noise as expected.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from quality and customer support issues I bought the drive in order to replace existing c drive which is 4 years old. The first drive I got had to be replaced since it crashed from day one. Since the of the installation the second drive, it has been working fine with good response time (better than the Seagate I replaced). In both cases the cloning software Acronis, did not work! I tried both the WD and the Seagate versions. Disabling the antivirus did not help and I could not find a reasonable solution. WD support was below any reasonable expectation. I spent more time my personal info and very little time in resolving the issue. They never called back as they promised nor demonstrated any technical skills. Eventually I used Macrium which worked fine without any problem. If you are thinking to replace existing C drive - think about the cloning software if you are looking to get a drive with a good performance you MAY get a working drive with good perfromance

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Western Digital reliable as always This drive is used in an enclosure for raw storage on a Mac. It is quiet and performs as expected. One needs to be aware that, on a Mac, the drive icon will not show up until the drive is reformatted. Instead, the user will see an error message declaring the drive unreadable. At that point the user will be given the opportunity to format.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality of the finest I have this drive running in my surveillance DVR now for about 15 months and it really is the quality I would expect from Western Digital. Today I exchanged this drive for a 3TB purple drive (WD of course), just to maximize the capacity of my DVR. I have never really noticed it but this drive creates a lot of heat when used 24/7 . I know this drive was never meant to be in a DVR but considering the quality of the WD drives, I tried it for about 15 months. That in fact the drive went through this long time running 24/7, confirms my trust in WD drives once more. Out of 35 drives I bought over the years I had only two that failed (fortunately within warranty). Even my oldest drive from 2002 is still up and running. I never was that lucky with drives from other manufacturers.
