I, like a few others around here, prefer HDDs and wanted the fastest model to use as an OS boot drive. I already have a large external storage array. I went through all the reviews to find the fastest disk at the lowest size (pretty much 1TB nowadays) and WD1003FZEX was recommended again and again.
Anyway I sent it back, got a refund and bought last years 1TB black model, the WD1002FAEX. It's access time is 12.2ms in benchmarks I have run. 31%!! faster than the newer WD1003FZEX. Windows is more responsive.
WD have been deceptive with new model, the 2TB, 3TB and 4TB are fine but they hobbled the 1TB version. You could save 30$ by buying the 1TB blue version.
I don't care about an extra 15-20MB/s sustained transfer rate with the new model, access time kills that gain for 90% of realworld work.
