    If you really can't get WD Black, get WD Blue. Be sure to take the EZEX model instead of FZEX, EZEX is slightly faster. My HGST 7k1000.D was a liiiitle bit faster, but it died after 1 year, even the warranty replacement died after 1.5 years too. Now Toshiba makes their 3.5inch HDDs using HGST's R&D and factories so you could expect similar results from them.
