    This drive is quiet and the sequential performance is very good, though the seek time is average.

    I get about the average advertised 150 MB/s sustained. It is 190 MB/s on the outer part of the platter.

    From HDtune the average seek time is 20ms.

    Pretty great for a moderately priced 1 TB spinner!

    I will keep it short and to the point… I was skeptical about this drive and was hesitant to purchase it, but now I am a firm believer and will recommend to anyone. Immediately after I installed and performed a fresh install of Mountain Lion, I performed a disk bench test and average read/write speed is 170mb/sec with +/- 5mb/sec – AMAZING fast for a HDD SATA III. Furthermore, the drive is very quiet and I have yet to notice any excessive spinning or noise. Since then, I’ve purchased another drive for a second system and I will update this post if I experience any problems.

    This is my 3rd 1 TB hard drive from W.D. and I have to say I’m happy with the speed and durability. I’m using them in my probox to stream movies, music and backing up files. I’ve never had one fail. Thanks W.D. for such a good product. Would recommend this drive.
    Update: Just bought my second 1tb drive in 2 weeks and have to say I’m tickled to death 11/6/2012. Speeds are amazing.
