I have received the WD Black WD2002FAEX to review. Last time when I reviewed the WD Red series, it made a good impression especially when it comes to temperatures during load. It makes a lot more sense to go for such drives when you’re considering RAID 0 configurations, although I am hoping to upgrade a more suitable test bench once Haswell/ Newer gen Ivy Bridge comes up, especially keep RAID 0 testing in mind.

I am saying because the drive is absolutely silent as a secondary drive, even with 12TB endurance testing that takes about 1 1/2- 2 days. But when it comes to be used as a primary, the drives does have the tendency to make an audible noise almost similar to the velociraptor. 2TB EFRX and Seagate’s Barracuda XT seem to be bit more suitable for that if you don’t want to break a bank- or else you can always do a favour to yourself and make plans to get an SSD as a primary drive and one of the drives of your choice as a secondary drive.

As always, WD Black comes with 5 years warranty.
