Western Digital WD Black 3TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA 6Gb/s WD3003FZEX Review

  • 5.0 / 5
    • The good:
      5 year warranty; high performance; vibration control; 3TB hard drive; Corruption Protection Technology
    • The bad:
      more expensive; more power than you may need

    The Western Digital WD Black series represent the high performance end of the Western Digital line of hard disk drives (HDD’s).


    The latest WD Black HDD’s are designed with enhanced features and operating ability, to give maximum performance. With capacities up to 4TB, WD Black HDD’s offer an outstanding combination of performance and storage capacity, and comes with an impressive 5 year warranty, the best in the industry.


    The Western Digital Black 3TB Hard Drive is a standard 3.5” (8.9cm) mechanical hard drive with a 1TB capacity. It uses a SATA III interface, the latest version of the SATA data transfer interface. SATA operates at speeds of 6GB/sec, with a bandwidth throughput of 600MB/sec.

    WD Black hard drives are specifically configured for applications that require a high performance drive. WD Black hard drives are best used in desktop pc’s, gaming pc’s, home media pc’s, workstations, and all-in-one’s.


    For the technical minded, the specs of this drive are impressive.  The drive spins at 7200 RPM, and has a 64MB buffer. Data transfer is rated at 150MB/sec maximum. The noise levels are quite low, at levels around 30 dBA on average. Operating temperature range is 0 to 60 degrees C when active.


    Vibration is the enemy of hard drives.  Because the operating tolerances are so tight in today’s hard disk drives, even a small amount of vibration has the capacity to cause data loss or even catastrophic failure.  Vibration can be caused by mounting problems, or a vibration source inside your case, perhaps from an out of balance cooling fan. The new generation of Western Digital Black drives feature Vibration Control Technology, allowing the disks to adapt to minor vibrations dynamically. This results in increased data accuracy, reliability and performance.

    The WD Black also has StableTrac Technology. This secures the disk motor shaft at both ends inside the case to reduce vibration. This results in better tracking of the read/write arm.


    Corruption Protection Technology is another feature that sets the WD Black drives apart from the competition. If you have a power fluctuation or power loss, the CPT helps limit potential data loss.


    One nice thing about Western Digital is that they have an extensive testing program for their new products. Whenever they have a new product to launch, they use a system called Functional Integrity Testing, that essentially puts the new product through a series of high stress, maximum load testing. The average new product goes through over 600,000 hours of testing before product launch, to ensure that the product can handle more than the average user could possibly throw at it.


    The Western Digital WD Black 3TB 7200 RPM hard drive is a state of the art, high capacity drive that delivers great performance and reliability. Whether you are building a system from scratch, upgrading to a larger drive, or replacing a hard drive that failed, you will get superior performance with a Western Digital Black drive.
