from completed build Desert Thunder
Fast for an HDD, quiet, and more than enough room for 100 plus games on Steam, movies, photos, and music. I could probably fit another 75 plus games on it.

I have the OS running on a Plextor PX-256M5Pro pulled from my old system. The WD Black is for storage/games. On the plus side, it has a five year warranty. It’s benchmark performance is as expected. I can’t give it five stars as it seems quite loud when reading/writing and the price is high for this capacity.

The WD black is a great hard drive. I still have all my data, so there isn't much else to say. My only complaint is that it can get pretty loud when being written to or read. It is often the loudest part of my system, so I am definitely going to try to upgrade to an all SSD setup in the future.

Not much to say about this which means nothing bad! I like the size and will use this to store some RAW photos and JPEGs that I use on my wedding photography business. Some may complain about the noise...this is pretty much the only audible sound coming from my PC which is a testament to how quiet I made my computer.
Overall - Good size and reliable.

from completed build i7 workstation. It's green, but also white.
Had these in my AMD rig in a RAID 0 array and now moved them into my intel rig. TOo bad I had to recreate the RAID, but the data transferred over just fine and I will be using these until SSD prices drop more. One day I'll convert to all SSD.
