Rated 5 out of 5 by from At I would expect from WD I bought this hard drive as the main storage drive for my PC working along side an SSD drive and it has been flawless, it runs exceedingly quietly and has very fast read and write speeds. I am more than happy.

Can this drive be used in a Mac Pro (Mid 2012)

Asked by: iceman
From the specifications of that generation of Mac Pro, the maximum individual hard drive size was 2TB, so this drive would not be suitable, however a 2TB version should be compatible.

I'm replacing a 1TB SATA drive.  Will a 4TB drive be compatible with the Alienware X51 where it would replace the 1TB SATA drive?

Asked by: Gordy
You should be able to replace the 1TB with a 4TB, but it would be prudent to check that your motherboard will support that size of drive before you make purchase.

WHY ARE THESE HARD DRIVES IN DIFFERENT COLOURS. WHAT DOES IT REPRESENT?

Asked by: Bearhands
The colours are Western Digital's method to help differentiate between drives designed for different purposes. For example this Black drive has been designed to help with heavy computing programs by having a larger cache or disk buffer allowing for better performance from high demand programs.
