Just say no to WD - both their drives and their support site are defective

Summary: UPDATE: building a new system, so decided to spend a minimal amount of time getting an RMA for my remaining 2 2TB WD drives. First a reminder: when your drive dies, you don't just lose the hardware, you usually lose all the weeks/months/years of data as well.
Summary: great drive and excellent price, at least until you need to return a drive for warranty replacement. turns out the warranty expired 3 years before it was purchased (2/2013). These drives are supposed to carry a 5yr replacement warranty but not in this case.
Summary: We have 16 of these drives in a Promise VessRaid. It was put into service in October. One drive failed within the first month. No other failures to report for the first five months. The drives are very quiet and cool as you would expect. And fast enough for our storage needs.
Summary: I've been using these drives for several months now on a 3ware 9650SE-24M8 24 port RAID controller. All of my drives are still running firmware 04.05G04 and I have had no issues. I started with 3 and have been adding to and migrating the RAID 5 volume by a disk every few months as my needs increase.
Summary: I have at least 48 of these drives in active use in a large RAID array. We've been experiencing random lockups with our RAID controller for the past few months, and after hours of troubleshooting with multiple players, we've determined that these drives are actually locking up, causing the RAID...
Summary: These drives have performed flawlessly in a NetGear ReadyNAS Pro. It is necessary for the NAS's firmware to disable the 'green' function of these drives to prevent repetitive head parking (Load Cycle Count).
High Performance Drive running for 3 years 24/7 with 0 Glitches. Would highly recommend for personal, business & enterprise uses

Summary: Basic Summary: I have 2 of these hard drive in a mirrored raid that have been running 24/7 for the past 3 years with no issues at all on our servers. These drives were constantly stressed were used as a regular backup service/ repository for large amounts of client data, storing/ mounting of images,...
Summary: I have about 100 of these drives alongside around 700 other drives in use for my business. These are solid drives that just go and go. All issues that have cropped up have been the fault of overly narrow focused, assumption laden hardware RAID controllers.
Summary: I purchased five of these 2 TB Western Digital Data Center Rated Hard Drives for a new Synology DS509+ Network Attached Storage Server I bought for my small business. After about two weeks up and running, so far so good. They are extremely quiet, and generate just a small amount of heat.
Summary: I like the 3.5" drive over the 2.5" drive, bigger has more room to lose the heat. Like a bigger watt light ie(200w vs 50w) bulb is bigger for the same reason, the element fits the smaller bulb. Problem- harddrive-hd sitting in a dock, connected to a directv. To record movies.
