- No Relevant Documentation- September 5, 2021
I have been search for basic installation information and documentation that is current with the drive that I bought. Seems that documentation and simple installation instructions has been over looked. Not all of us are computer geeks... really missed the mark WD. Something as simple as a QR Code on the drive to take a person to simple instructions with illustrations. And if you do have.... nowhere to be found.
- Looks different- August 31, 2021
I ordered a 4 TB version of the hdd (WD4005FZBX). It is what it is, but it looks totally different from the appearance on the pictures (just a metallic cover with a sticker on it). Maybe I am missing something but I don't really understand it, did it change since then or how can this happen? Quality wise everything is all right, but still it is quite disappointing. Thanks!
- Awesome drive- November 7, 2014
This was my first time doing anything hardware related to my computer and this was very easy to install. Western Digital provides very detailed steps about how to install this drive and it worked out great. Some people say it is noisy but I haven't noticed any issues with it.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Hard Drive Replacement- March 7, 2015
I replaced my WD5000AAKX "Blue" 500 Gb drives with WDWD5003AZEX "Black" 500 Gb drives and got a significant increase in speed during booting and normal operation. The increase from 16Mb to 64Mb of cache really helped speed things up.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Exactly what I needed- October 11, 2014
Drive had no files on it, just a plain empty drive. Installed in the tower easily and reacted to loading files without problems. One reason for the purchase is the reliability of WD Black drives.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
