Good drive that does not last long

fex, Amazon
24 September 2011
  • Summary: I bought this drive around 1 year ago and I was very happy with the huge capacity (2TB) so I decided to use it as a backup disk and to move data around computers using it with an enclosure. At the beginning it was a dream; files, music, photo, video, everything in a single place, but almost a year later it started to die.

Good Price - Bad product - Ugly reliability

M. Lo, Amazon
8 December 2010
  • Summary: The Good... I bought these on special during the cyberweek deals @$59.99 each which is a good price. The Bad... The reviews you read about the noise are not exaggerating. These are just about the noisiest drives on the market. I used them primarily as file server drives and all i hear is a loud whir and constant clicking - that's a bad product. The Ugly... I've used these for less than 2 days (in non-continuous use) and one drive has already failed.

Slow for me

Mr MRD, Amazon
1 May 2010
  • Summary: We buy many of drives for our company. These drives were very slow comparing to Western Digital 1TB drives. Sometimes writes were just stalling. Probably that could be just incompatibility with our controllers (we tried on 3ware 9500 and 9650). But the result is quite bad anyway.

Good EXCEPT for the noise

Bud, Amazon
20 October 2009
  • Summary: Basic specs: This is a 5900 RPM drive, rated at 95MB/s max transfer rate and <16ms access (per the product manual). The power consumption is 3.0W idle and an an amazing 19dBA/20dBA noise--per the specs. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much after having disappointing (atrocious?) performance from WDC's "green" drives. As far as performance, however, I was pleasantly surprised. This drive tops out at 120MB/s--way above spec. The AVERAGE is 95 MB/s.

1tb drive???

Rob, Amazon
5 January 2011
  • Summary: Had this refunded and replaced because I could only format 1tb on the drive. Replacement drive has been the same. I'm just gonna keep it and use as a 1tb drive but not ideal. The other 1tb is there but unformattable. That's using windows software and other disk partition software.

  • Excerpt: Купил их аж 16 штук - В плюс - холодный - в эксплуатации 24/365 уже больше двух лет с СС32 и той самой СС34 - и ничего - два QNAP-овских NAS работают круглые сутки. Нагрев - максимум был до 37.
  • Pros: Холодный
  • Cons: Переодически хрустят. По прошествии двух лет эксплуатации посыпались - Зарастают бедблоками...

  • Excerpt: Куплен 21 июня 2010. Умер 10 января 2011 года. Не падал, обычно выше 45 градусов не нагревался, пару-тройку раз доходило до 52 градусов.
  • Pros: Дешевый диск. Негромкий. Достаточно слабо греется. Нормальная скорость работы.
  • Cons: Некачественный диск, не проработавший даже половину своего гарантийного срока.

  • Pros: Не сильно греется Пониженное энергопотребление Высокая скорость для LP / Green серии
  • Cons: Покупал 4 шт. для установки в NAS Synology. После 1 месяца эксплуатации физически умер один из дисков. Через 2 месяца полетел еще один винт. К счастью, с заменой не было никаких проблем. Покупал в ulmart.ru.
