Good hdd

 

It's heavy, but it works. Passed a full surface scan, all data on it works without issue. Rather than risk a bad drive from the green, blue, purple, and red series drives which seem to have ridiculously high failure rates I went with black because they...

It's a hard drive that works, no noise from unit, fast

Works well but

 

Reasonable performance.

Noisy, unable to set acoustic management, Very slow to wake up compared to Seagate.

Happy and Irritated

 

If you can get over the sound of the drive, this one is for you. I am not yet familiar with the drive's ability to handle games. I will get back to you once I figure it out.

Does what I needed it to do

Loudish noise every now and again. I'm guessing it's because the drive is reading and writing

Great Fast HDD

 

This HDD is amazing, great read/write speeds for a mechanical drive, getting around 160-170 MBps read and write speeds. I use this drive in my gaming PC and it holds shortcuts to my documents, pictures, videos, etc. from windows default folders, plus...

The "2 TB" is actually 1.8 TB of usable space, cuz of bits to bytes and whatnot. Not docking an egg, just stupid convention that we use.

Works great and is very fast for a HDD. No data loss or randomly corrupted files after a year of use.

Works great

 

Pretty inexpensive for a drive that you can put your faith in with as much space.

I use this as my gaming drive and have my games on it that I don't play very often. Has worked extremely well and I don't have long load times.

I can tell that this is the bottle neck for loading games off of it, but that is to be expected.
