Reliability is job ONE - It costs a lot less than data retreival.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This looked like a "Best Value" in a 2Tb drive. I bought two in the past month. I have been building computers for better than 25 years and have used all brands at one time or another. I usually looked for the best price per byte and sometimes that left me wanting. After years of experience, I can attest to the old saying; It's not IF the hard drive dies, it's WHEN will it die. If you have never had a drive die, you are fortunate indeed.

When I looked at the lower priced drives or refurbished drives at attractive prices, I ask myself this question. If the manufacturer only warrants the drive for 90 days (refurb) or a year or two, they are telling me what the probable life is. If they won't risk repairing it under warranty for any longer than that, why would I want to trust my valuable data to that drive. Even with the best backup system, the immediate data is at risk of drive failure.

This drive costs a bit more, but as a bonus you get 64MB buffer and a significant speed increase due to the enhanced electronics in the drive.
When I look at the ratings on parts, I like to see at least 70% between the 5 star and 4 star ratings combined. Of course, it's human nature to complain more than to compliment, so that's why I use 70% as the criteria. I am not enamored of an particular brand. I rather look for reputation, value and price. The Five year warranty together with the performance sold me.

One of the best and reliable hard drive for home. No problems with this hdd

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent hard drive, I have two caviar black and great, fast, reliable, good quality hard drive. Two-terabyte disks are the sweet spot between price and capacity right now and are ideal for media-hungry PC users, either as a system disk or as a data disk alongside a fast boot SSD. The Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB isn’t the cheapest 2TB disk on the market at 6p per GB, but it has a reassuring five-year warranty and did well in our transfer speed tests.

2 tb WD drive is one of the better ones available as of September 2012.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I was concerned about the noise factor as I have been using SSD's for a while and I love quiet but powerful computers.

I needed more space as I was filling up the SSD I am using and did some research on HDD's. It seems that this 2 tb Wester Digital Caviar black is one of the best deals and best performers. But there was some concern about noise.

I did some research on how to quiet down hard drives and it seems that if you decouple the hard drive from the case using little thin bungee cords, the drive will become just about silent. If you suspend the drive with bungees, it makes almost no noise at all.
I cannot hear this drive and my computer is as quiet as it was while using just SSD's. I mean whisper quiet. No noise at all.

The Sata III capabilities and the 64mb of cache is icing on the cake. This drive really flies and is one of the better drives I've had a chance to own and use.

I hear that Western Digital is looking into using helium as a gas inside the drives instead of air for even faster speeds and way higher capacities. They won't be out till 2013 but till then, this hard drive is the one to have.

I give it three thumbs up!

Good drive, definitely worth the money.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works very well, extremely fast and hasn't failed me yet. It also does not get very hot for such a fast drive. It is a bit noisier than I had expected though (the seek actions; not the motor. When there is no seek going on it is silent). It is also very heavy, like it is made of solid aluminum. I suspect it must be stuffed with multiple platters - which is one way to get to 2TB I guess.
