Question  Real world usage by Rob

Would the performance of this drive be noticeably any better than any other similar drive in real world usage, still SATA3, 1TB. Will be used as a secondary drive for data storage.

Answer by shaund on Tuesday, July 7, 2015
Hi Rob,

The WD Black is faster, more reliable and will have a better warranty than most other drives.

Question  Backwards compatible? by Harry

Will this work on a motherboard only capable of SATA II? And if so, will the (presumably) slower transfer rates be noticeable in real world use?

Answer by Keithw on Monday, January 6, 2014
Yes it will work with SATA II, and to be honest you would not really notice the slower speeds.

Thanks for your question
