WD10EZEX Review (WD Blue 1TB single-platter drive.) - Page 12

post #111 of 377
Anyone have any issues with these drives so far?

They seem fairly reliable so far at least. May consider grabbing one tomorrow. I'm down to 20 GB's of storage... frown.gif

Been holding out due to the flood prices on HD's... 70 bucks at the Egg seems like a good price.

The WD10EZEX has been reliable for me. I'm sitting at 1,020 power on hours with 361 power cycles on mine. Of course that's just one drive. Not exactly a large sample size.

After using the WD10EZEX for a few months, I ultimately I decided to go with an SSD and I cloned the C: and recovery partitions over to the SSD using the WD version of Acronis and I'm using the disk drive for storage. It's not that the WD is exceptionally slow or anything, but with SSDs getting so cheap, they're definitely worth the cost to upgrade. It's also not as bothersome managing two drives as I thought it would be. Only problem is some programs (like GIMP) still link to the default location on the C:\ drive for pictures, videos, etc., instead of the updated library locations I set.

Can you re-run it in safemode? (Tap F8 while booting to get into safemode)

In safemode, less software is running - that rules down the cause to some piece of software that you've got installed.

Safemode looks a lot better. A few more questions...

1) Are you in AHCI mode in the BIOS? If not, follow this guide:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1227636/how-to-change-sata-modes-after-windows-7-installation

2) Do you have AHCI drivers installed? (For AMD Chipsets, see: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/raid_windows.aspx )

3) You may need to experiment with disabling software to find the worst culprit causing your lag. I suggest using CCleaner to turn stuff off - reboot, then turn it on again if there's no difference.
http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

4) This write caching tweak might help a bit too:

1) Done



That's ok?

2) when i did the point 1), windows install the drivers

3)

4) that's ok from the start


In normal mode, HD Tune threw almost the same result of the first test.

Just had a look at my WD10EZEX SMART using PC Wizard. All good and it's total power on hours is 768. My SG05 rig has been powered for that long as the hard disk was purchased when I built it. I love this hard disk. thumb.gif

Having dips in the read speed like that is completely normal for benchmarking a drive that's also the OS drive. If you really want to, you can make a Linux live CD or USB, boot from that, and then benchmark the drive using the built-in disk utility which will eliminate the software/OS using your drive while you benchmark it.
