Replacement process was easy (5 minutes). The HDD didn't need to be formatted. By:
My defective HDD is a newer model of this (WD10EZEX) drive and lasted 3 years. The replacement process was so easy (5 minutes) since the screw placement of the new one is the same as the old's. The new drive didn't need to be formatted but the OS and other software needed to be installed to the drive by running recovery disks.

WD is the drive for me... and you too :) By:
Western Digital is the only brand I buy... over the past 20 years, I have learned WD lasts the longest, consistently out performs others, and rarely fails. The product line is second to none in value and application coverage at a reasonable price. Enjoy!

Great HDD By:
I like it for my homework folder. It works well, its reliable, its quick, it has lots of space.
Great value for money, just might come DOA By:
I ordered two of these and one was DOA, which reading the other reviews, seems to be an issue with this model. Still, this model has more cache and can be acquired for far less than other WD Black models; there is a 4TB WD Black right here on Amazon that costs more *and* has less cache available... We'll see if it lasts of course, but even with having to replace one of the drives I'm still happy with the value for money.
Great Capacity By:
Love the large capacity!
Western Digital, as always, on top! By:
Excellent drive from the black series of hard drives.Delivered fast and works great!
Western Digitals never disappoints By:
I am using WD hard dries for years and it’s not the only brand that I have experienced through years. Honestly I never had a hard drive failure or break down but I have had always the concern and fear of these mechanical components soon or late so I did always followed a straight forward backup plan on everything I felt it’s important and that made me to buy even more HDDs and this black version of WD 6TB is just the last one I purchased. I have to testify that the speed of this HDD exceeded my own expectations and since it is installed in my desktop case, I don’t hear any extra noises when it is working. I am not a gamer but I am doing a lot of video editing and files are big and it was my biggest motivation to spend more money for the brand that I have a very high trust with.For those who are interested in trying this product and not quite familiar with the computer, please keep in mind that any hard drive over 2TB needs to be recognized by windows and it doesn’t happen automatically after installation so you have to open the disk management utility and allocate the drive which means that you have to format it and if you need partitions, it’s coming up next until you assign a letter for your drive and possibly a short discription and then you are good to go for whatever you are planning to do with the drive. I would absolutely recommend this seller, however I didn’t try their support because nothing bad ever happened.
