Customer Review

Reviewed in Canada on January 1, 2020
Have bought several WD Black drives over the years. One 2TB lasted 9 years. Another 1.5TB is 10 yrs old and still going. Have 5TB drive that has been stable. Others too. I trust them far more than Seagate and others.

BUT I bought 2 of these 6TB drives. I tested both extensively (FULL multi-pass read and write of entire drive, all sectors). One is showing signs of weakness right out of the box, with intermittent trouble reading a couple of sectors (getting replaced via Amazon).

Note that no manufacturer fully test drives before being sent out, so there can always be bad ones out there. Small number will fail early, so get a good drive tester to perform FULL multi-pass surface scan (can take a couple of days to run). Glad I did before committing my data to it.
