Summary: I purchased this for my mac mini server. It has two drive bays. I purchased one to try it out and make sure it would work. Will be ordering second drive soon. Possibly even get one for my PC laptop.
Pros: Works great for my Mac Mini. I would recommend this to anyone with a mac.
Summary: I had one come DOA, but that's acceptable and was remedied quickly since I have Newegg Premier. I rebuilt an old PC as a backup server with two of these in a cloning situation using SnapRAID. They run well enough for this purpose.
Pros: Fast Cool Store data?
Cons: Got one DOA They occasionally get ATA errors when lots of data is being written. It looks like an issue with the computer and not the drive. Seem to have some issues with my SATA controller sometimes, but I don't think that's the fault of the drives.
WD Red WD10JFCX IntelliPower Sata 6.0, 2.5" NAS HD

Summary: If I could make this assessment with NO EGGS, I'd do it. Since I'm past the 30 day limit, I must now deal with WD. I'd just like a replacement 'cuz I don't like to give up and what should be a good thing.
Cons: Installed in computer, tried to format, showed quick format , I accepted. While trying to use showed disk errors, corrected by Windows. Went back to format, immediately went quick format, back using, more errors, back to format, this time I forced full format. For a 1 TB HD drive it took little t...
Summary: I didn't understand how "Intellispeed" would work, I thought it was WD's way of saying 5400RPM. They could elaborate a little more on what Intellispeed accomplishes so that die hard WD fans as well as other customers could all understand what speeds to expect.
Pros: I wasn't expecting these hard drives to perform as close to the WD RE4's as they did. These are by far excellent 2.5" drives for a raid system. Excellent read and write speeds
Summary: So I waited to log a review until I got the first drive that failed replaced. After using dozens of their drives over the years, I gave WD a pass on letting one slip out past QA. Then no sooner than I get it replaced and installed, another one is heading south.
Pros: None yet.
Cons: I have used WD drives forever it seems like. Been monkeying with PC's since the days of the 8086. So when I decided to get me a NAS for home use (QNAP TS-451) I opted for these WD Red 1tb drives. I bought 4 of them to run RAID 5. Received the NAS and drives a few weeks ago. Installed them, starte...
Summary: Shipping etc was smooth. Installation with no hassle. I bought the drive to work with NUC. It worked well for about a month, and then started to be unreliable. The drive is not recognizable during boot up randomly. Ran diagnosis/rescue package.
Excerpt: These hard drives are awesome. I use them for my Annual Archive drive with my photography business. They are easier to store, and allow a ton more space in my Mac Pro than a traditional 3.5" HDD.
Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Versatile
