It's a bias, but I love Western Digital drives. I am an IT professional by trade, but I'm not sure that makes me any kind of authority on the subject. I don't do reliability testing or bench-marking for a living. While all the data I've see tends to reinforce my existing bias, it is the nature of biases to be self-affirming. All I can offer, then, is my personal opinion and my professional recommendation, based on my own experiences.The truth is, that's often all we IT people can provide: opini ... ons, and sometimes shaky ones. We tend to form our opinions based on experiences when the truth about how good or bad a particular drive model or maker is, is really a matter of statistics. We instead reach conclusions based on anecdotal evidence and recommendations from friends or colleague, and it's far too easy for a popular conception, a single run of good luck, or a single bad experience to cloud the statistical realty.

I will keep it short and to the point... I was skeptical about this drive and was hesitant to purchase it, but now I am a firm believer and will recommend to anyone. Immediately after I installed and performed a fresh install of Mountain Lion, I performed a disk bench test and average read/write speed is 170mb/sec with +/- 5mb/sec - AMAZING fast for a HDD SATA III. Furthermore, the drive is very quiet and I have yet to notice any excessive spinning or noise. Since then, I've purchased another ... drive for a second system and I will update this post if I experience any problems. More >

This drive is quiet and the sequential performance is very good, though the seek time is average.I get about the average advertised 150 MB/s sustained. It is 190 MB/s on the outer part of the platter.From HDtune the average seek time is 20ms.Pretty great for a moderately priced 1 TB spinner!

An absolute snap to install and get up and running thanks to WD software. Other brands are so complicated you need to be a computer geek to understand how to make it work after you connect the wires. Great price for sooo much capacity.
