RAID FAILURES - BAD FIRMWARE
Marvin P. Braswell "AIM Systems Corp.", Amazon
3 February 2010
Summary: EXPENSIVE AND PRONE TO FAILURE. Known firmware problems result in drive failure in 49.7 days of usage. WD recommends a cold power down of the computers containing the drive every 30 to 45 days. The issue results from problems in the TLER and FIS firmware programing. The error occurs when someone is reading or writing to on the 49.7th day of operation.
Summary: FRAUD. The disk never been delivered, deliverer says that the item was delivered and I even signed, which never happened in real life. A lot of nervous and hassle. THE SUPPLIER DOES NOT WISH TO INVESTIGATE THE CASE. Will apply to court. HIGH NOT RECOMMENDED...
