Was the problem the same thing as their 7Ks? Was it often a case of board/PCB oxidation/corrosion?

I was hoping that they were at least more reliable than their Blues! Now, those are known for connector oxidation and corrosion, IIRC!

Looks like I have a lot of oxidation on my 2016-built Western Digital Black 7K 500 GB HDD!

Yeah but four of them in RAID0 performs nice. Plus they sound cool when they're busy

I am using an nvme SSD as the boot drive. The Raptors just hold my games and Adobe creative cloud software.

As for reliability honestly I love them. I have five of these drives. Ones in my bfs PC and these four. All have 30-60k hours on them.

I stopped for my machine mechanical hard drive between noise and consumption.

of course to improve performance

Now I use DELL Quad NVME and make storage pools with windows and primocache for accelerated .

I store my programs and games there and windows in a another Nvme

It is more than enough for me and I am quite happy with this config

Just wait till the PC industry adopts soldered SSDs like the new macs then everyone will be screwed.

Haha I absolutely hate mechanical hard drives for boot drives but for my games and apps it's good enough. Even Photoshop opens up plenty fast on the 4x VelociRaptor RAID0. No point wasting space on my NVMe boot SSD that's only 256GB. Lame but I got it for free. I could buy a bigger one but I don't need it so why bother.

I don't think that will happen. Even my super thin LG Gram has two replaceable 2280 slots

Most PC manufacturers want to separate them from apple

Nope, it's only Apple users getting screwed with soldered SSDs. They are a hardware company that remove the ability for their users to upgrade to gouge even more money and differentiate models.

There might be a few non Apple devices with soldered SSDs but any manufacturer of motherboards or assembler of PCs or laptops would be seriously hampering their sales if they did this, I also seriously doubt it will happen.

Hmmm... oxidation on the boards? First I'm hearing of this. What on earth causes that. Faulty manufacturing?

I've fix a bunch of them. It was definitely a bigger issue than being reported. Perhaps many got trashed without being diagnosed. This issue however, did not affect the velociraptor. Every bad velociraptor I dealt with always had mass bad sector issues.

I can almost say the same for 2.5" laptop WD Blacks.

Ironically the only good one I have (99% health, currently 1 weak sector) is in a HP G62-a35SO, of all things.

Microsoft Surface: Let me introduce myself.

Soldered SSDs are probably a ting with tablets and mobile phones.

We're not going to see it on desktops probably but on laptops maybe.

Technically... ASUS does use soldered in RAM at this point, so it wouldn't seem too far off to include a form of soldered SSD (or eMMC.).

If I ever see soldered eMMC/NVMe/RAM on a desktop computer, that crap is going right back in the box and back to where it came from.
