WD Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 3.5″ HDD Review

  1. Introduction
  2. Specification and Closer Look
  3. Test Bench and Methodology
  4. Conclusion

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.


Then I’ve tested the 1TB Velociraptor which made a good impression, although its older 600GB counterpart did have the lowest boot load times compared to ALL of the mechanical drives. But where do blue and black series fit? Especially when Mechanical drives are something that is now would be considered to be used as a secondary storage as more and more people doing the right thing by having an SSD as their primary drive- well- those who can afford anyway.

I initially wished that I could be done testing the Toshiba DT01ACA drives which are more than 500GB capacity to see how they stack up against WD and/or Seagate. Unfortunately, for now, it didn’t work out so we’ll have to do with what we have.
