The WD Black drive features a dual-core processor that offers twice the processing capability as a standard single-core processor to maximize drive performance, especially for loading games or large multimedia files.

Top Customer Reviews
Since there are quite a few hits / comments on this review I thought I would supply a quick update
All my WD drives from 2014 are still running great:) 24 x 7.
This WD Black 1TB is used as my primary data drive. I use a Kingston SSD as my O.S. / application drive.
Win7 volume creation and format went without a hitch. The xfer of ~500GB data from my WD Red drive to this new WD Black drive went smoothly.
This new Black drive has much faster read speed and very respectable write speed compared to other 7200rpm SATA drives I have used thus far. I also noticed that when I booted to win7 from it (I loaded a backup boot partition in case my SSD failed) the speed was impressive. No, not nearly as fast as my SSD but much faster than my backup WDSE and WDRed NAS drives which are also 7200RPM SATA3.
I've had Seagate 7200 RPM SATA3 drives which are not quite as nimble.
Alas, it was all too good to be true:(
My super speedy Black drive started clicking & chunking after appx. 2.5 mos.
Hey ... This happens sometimes with hard drives ... ok, no big deal, the
drive came with a 3yr. Wd warranty. This is where the fun started:
Went to WD website and spent appx. 1/2hr. in RMA process. Very easy.
Sent my RMA drive back via UPS label I printed from WD website (very convenient).
After appx. 7 days I checked the RMA status on the WD website. WHAT???
The model# I sent them does not match the model# they are sending me. I looked up the model# they were sending me and it was the slower / cheaper Blue hdd with only 1yr warranty.
I called WD to confirm. They answered the call after a few min of going thru the phone tree.Read more ›

In the video, I am running a speed test and recording the sound with my iPhone 5 to see how loud the drive is. During the speed test, which has sequential and random tests, I move the phone closer to the drive to be able to hear the sound better. At the end of the video, I show two CrystalDiskMark speed tests. The test on the left is of the Seagate 2TB Drive and the test on the right is of the WD Black 2TB Drive.
Speed Test Results - As you can see from the video, the speed of the WD Black Drive (test on the right) is pretty amazing with results of 170MB/s from a USB 3.0 Hard Drive Dock using a 500MB test size. When compared to the cheaper Seagate Drive (test on the left with a respectable 148MB/s), the speed is significantly faster, so you really get what you pay for in this case.Read more ›
This is part of the "Black" desktop series. WD Black drives feature a dual core processor that offers twice the processing power to maximize drive performance. According to the manufacturer specs, this 7200 rpm drive has a 64MB cache, advanced format 4K sectors, 6GB/s interface. WD Black drives come with a 5-year limited warranty (vs the Blue drives, which come with only two years). In brief, this is a very good/excellent hard disk drive.
From what I've seen with this drive, I would not hesitate to use it as a performance or data drive. It is fast enough to run the OS, and large enough to store tons of data files. Don't expect break-neck speeds, and certainly don't compare it with solid-state drive (SSD) performance, and you will be quite pleased with this drive.
Overall, highly recommended.
(Warning: Geek alert!!!)
I tested an OEM version of this drive, and not a retail package (boxed with cables, screws, etc.) on my workstation PC. First thing I did was format it to NTFS using PartedMagic (multiple partitions).
Using CDM 3.0.1 and HD Tach as benchmarking tools, I got the following specs:
Average Read - 107 MB/s
Sequential Read - 133 MB/s
Average Write - 115 MB/s
Sequential Write - 117 MB/s
I'm not sure why I was getting relatively "low" benchmark values. Clearly, these benchmark numbers are impressive.Read more ›
