    Well I have my mac pro on order and should be at the dealer this week. He suggested that I wait to see what 1TB HD Apple uses in the computer before I order additional HD's so that they will match. I know they will be WD drives according to everything I have read here and should be Caviar Black. I can't fault him for wanting to be cautious so that the computer will work well for me.

    My question is does anyone have any issues with the additional WD Caviar Black HD's that they have been adding to their Mac Pros?

    Thanks!

    Jim

    The drives don't necessarily have to match unless you plan on running a RAID.

    They needn't match for RAID, either.
