Summary: Computer Consultant. This is a stock item for me. Western Digital 1 TB ... enterprise version ( in theory, more reliable ) Ok - for about the same price as the consumer version I get, in theory, a better built mouse trap? Works for me!
Best Enterprise Drive on a budget, great for a Mirror-er Boot Pool.

Summary: These are WD original Enterprise Drives. They do the job and do it well, as fast as you are going to get without spending extreme $$$. Its safe to say I have purchased over 100 WD drives, and have had to RMA no more than 3 of their Enterprise Drives. If they fail, they tend to do it early..
Summary: The WD RE series SATA III drives are outstanding enterprise drives. Designed for long life in server use with a 24X7 duty cycle they are ideal for that environment. Their 5 year warranty speaks to their reliability.
Summary: I've used and depended on WD products for years. They have always been reliable and I trust it to my most sensitive data. However BACKUPS on a regular bases is a MUST for anything that is not replaceable (Documents, photos, music). The unit comes as you see in a static bag and padded box.
