Works great when it works

McAllister Y., Newegg
25 January 2016
  • Summary: The dead drive was kind of strange, because it kept showing up in the BIOS as locked, but the Device Manager couldn't make heads or tails of it, and trying to initialize the thing only brought cryptic error messages. Wrestled with it for a while before giving up and returning.
  • Pros: Good storage option for RAID with cost vs. capacity + warranty.
  • Cons: originally ordered three of these for a RAID 5 data storage server. one of three was DoA. Too much hat-juggling at work meant the 30 days had gone by and had to go through WD to do a RMA, which was fortunately relatively painless (though they do charge for shipping the dead drive back).

Raid Keeps on Rolling

David P., Newegg
3 August 2015
  • Summary: About to setup 4 more in an external Sans Digital TR4M6G and I'm looking forward to benchmarking this configuration (again in raid 5). It'll be nice to have an external drive the crunches the gigs.
  • Pros: I am impressed with how well these drives have been performing., Since the day I received the 4 of them they have been in a raid 5 array and are taxed 24x7 serving as DVR storage. I have two HDHR3 and I love to see if I can max thing out.
  • Cons: None. They are excellent drives for not being SSD'sc

massive drive

Amanda S., Newegg
11 March 2015
  • Summary: The NSA installs unremoveable Malware on all WD drives wish WD would give us a way to remove this.
  • Pros: Drive is massive. Ok write speeds. Awesome price
  • Cons: Very Noisy people on here are not kidding at all. Go fire up your old windows 98 system listen to the drive make all the clicking and rattling noise. That's how this drive sounds. This really worried me but It tested ok in every way we shall see it if holds for the length of the warranty
