Product Features

High performance electronics
WD Black drives feature a dual processor and bigger, faster dynamic cache for maximum read and write speeds.

Dual processor
Twice the processing power to maximize performance.

Rock-solid Mechanical Architecture
Enhanced reliability features help protect the drive and the data stored on it.

NoTouch Ramp Load technology
The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.

Dynamic Cache
WD's dynamic caching algorithm improves performance in real time by optimizing cache allocation between reads and writes. For example, if there's an overwhelming percentage of read traffic as opposed to write traffic, the drive automatically allocates more cache for read data, which reduces congestion and improves overall drive performance.

WD Acronis TrueImage, available as a free download on the WD Support site, enables you to copy all your data to a new drive so you don't have to reinstall your operating system to get all the benefits of a new drive.

Ideal for:
  • Power computing applications such as intensive photo or video editing
  • Notebook gaming
  • Adding extra storage space for photos, videos and music

Features at a glance

I've replaced the original HDD of my notebook, which was Seagate ST750LM022, with this one, and I've been using it for two weeks. For me, the following changes were tangible:
1. Increased performance: Of course not as much as using an SSD drive, but in comparison to my previous HDD this drive is much faster. While the Windows 8's score remain the same for two HDDs (5.9), the increased performance is clear. Just don't expect a huge enhancement.
2. Increase power consumption: The battery life time of my notebook has been decreased from 7 hours to less than 4.5 hours! It seems awful, but I don't have any complain about this, since this is a black edition product of Western Digital and is specifically designed for performance.
3. HDD noise is a little bit higher, but it is still in an acceptable level and can be neglected.
4. Vibration of this HDD is more than the previous one, which should be natural for 7200 rpm drives.
Hope this information help you find your right HDD.

This is a very good hard drive, for this size and form factor. I was curious what speeds it got in read/write and could not find any benchmarks out there, so decided to run my own. First though, there are a few things about hard drive speeds: in general, 7200 rpm is faster than 5400 rpm drives, and larger drives tend to be faster than smaller drives (1tb faster than 500gb, all else equal) and desktop drives (3.5") tend to be faster than notebook drives (2.5"). However, as I'll show, this is very fast for a notebook drive. It is nearly as fast as my 1TB 7200 RPM 3.5" Seagate Barracuda.

This drive is interesting because it appears to be an updated version of the WD5000BPKX (http://www.amazon.com/Western-Digital-Black-Notebook-WD5000BPKX/dp/B00DSUTWMQ/) which only released in January, 2015. It is $6 more at time of review, but has double the cache (32mb vs 16mb).

I ran benchmarks on all my drives here http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/171711

Here are the results (given as averages):

Western Digital 500GB 7200RPM 2.5" Read 164 MB/s Write 142 MB/s Mixed 141 MB/s
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM 3.5" Read 171 Write 153 Mixed 151

So it's nearly as fast as the Seagate, but what about compared to the older molder, the WD5000BPKX?
That drive is benchmarked here: http://hdd.userbenchmark.com/SpeedTest/3355/WDC-WD5000BPKX-75HPJT0
Though results vary, probably depending on the age of the drive, it seems pretty clear this version is much faster. The reports there seem to show the older model is closer to 110 MB/s.

I'd recommend this as a new drive, if you can't afford a SSD (which, of course, would be faster). And I think the extra cost over the older model seems worth it, too, since it seems to be faster. This may be due to the increased cache size.

When I upgraded one of my laptop hard drives for more space last summer I selected the WD Black 750GB because it was at a "sweet spot" in the value/performance curve at that time. This is a very fast 2.5" drive within its class and I found a noticeable performance advantage over my older 7200 RPM Toshiba laptop drive.

I can hear this WD Black drive a little bit when it's busy. While any drive noise may bother some people, I find it useful feedback that the drive is busy.

Power consumption specs are higher than the older Toshiba. That makes sense with a mechanical drive: high performance takes higher power. However, I've not noticed my usable time on battery has changed for the worse so I don't think it's a power hog. Power is a place where modern and more expensive SSD drives shine over mechanical drives, but since I normally have power plugged in this isn't an issue for me.

Alternatives I considered include a Seagate 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive. Because of bad experiences (documented in my review of that drive) I did not feel I could trust it. The Seagate Hybrid drive is very fast for frequently used files and the OS, but the failure mode I'd experienced was total loss of access - no recovery possible. OUCH!

I also considered the WD Black2 Dual Drive: 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD that I installed for a client. He is doing video editing on a laptop. It can be a good solution for certain specific kind of use. The dual drive (NOT Hybrid) solution has shortcomings and a price that take it way off the price/performance curve for general use.

Not as fast as an SSD, obviously, but far more durable in Linux environments that tend to write constantly and burn up SSDs like wax fireplace logs. I have a bunch of these in 24/7 operation with an accumulated ~120,000 hours of run time without a single problem. Not even ONE relocated sector. I've also found that the "Black" versions of WD drives tend to be better balanced with better motors and bearings, so they make less noise in operation. As of today, I can't even speculate how long these things last. Likely something short of "forever", but I don't know how much.
