I see from your specs you offer a 3 year mfg warranty with this drive. My understanding, WD offers a 5 year warranty with all Caviar Black model drives. Can you look into this discrepancy please? Thank you

You are correct, this product does indeed included a 5 year warranty. We apologize for our mistake!

(based on 8 reviews)
Defective product
By Roger Faustin from Michigan on January 1, 2016
The product was defective, I had to return it, I'm still waiting for a replacement.

Good, dependably hard drive
By Mike from Portland, Oregon on May 21, 2015
A good choice for general purpose storage on a secondary drive.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Works Well
By Will from Denver on January 20, 2015

Functions as its supposed to

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Works Great. I had absolutely no issues
By Dominic from Ohio on November 18, 2014
I bought this to match my existing HDD so that I could run it in raid0. I just plugged it in and reinstalled my OS and everything has been working great with no issues

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Good for data cache
By Tony from Charlotte, NC on August 27, 2014
With SSD drives being the choice now for OS and Installed programs, a good data drive is also recommended. Western Digital holds a high quality product standard (which often costs a little more) and delivers with this drive.
-Decent amount of space
-Quiet (or at least my drive is. Can be hit or miss)
-Great for data cache and system backup
-Slower R/W than an SSD (expected, but still a Con)

I would recommend this item to a friend.

By Eric from Philadelphia on November 12, 2013
Everything works great. This is a MASSIVE upgrade from my old HDD. The Caviar black's speed is impressive, and it's much more quiet than other reviews led me to believe.
Speed and price.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
