TechRadar's verdict

"For ultimate performance, SSDs rule. But WD's Caviar Black combines huge capacity with reasonable performance at a very attractive price point."
For
  • Lots of performance-enhancing features
  • Good balance between capacity and performance
Against
  • Still much slower than an SSD
  • SATA 6Gbps interface is redundant
