Summary: So far this hard drive has run great and even survived a short in my server. The customer service from this company was great when I ordered the hard drive. This is a really solid hard drive for your server needs.
Summary: We use the "Black" drives throughout our systems including inside our Thecus servers and as second drives on our desktop PCs with no serious problems. In five years, they just keep going. We still always don't trust any hard drive.... always keep backups.
Extremely reliable and great price/reliability ratio. The only 7200RPM class drives I purchase, period.

Summary: The reliability of these drives are second to none. I have over 20 of these installed in my servers in a datacenter cabinet and they all run great on my Dell PERC6/i. I move lots of data all day long serving up webpages to clients, and cloud hosting applications. So for the price/reliability ratio you're getting with these drives, I can't find a better product.

Summary: I bought two hard drives to add to my company's server, as HP hard drives were over $600 each, i prefered ti get these, WD is a very reliable brand in my experience, and the specs were basically the same. Instalation and setup was no problem, I got them working on a RAID 1 array within 1 hour.
Summary: This is a great drive for using in a RAID setup. Runs fairly quiet and plenty fast for my needs. Comes with a five year warranty and enterprise quality from Western Digital. One word of warning: make sure to immediately register your drive with Western Digital when you receive it to make sure you get the full warranty. Some of the sellers in the Amazon marketplace are shipping OEM or previously returned drives, which Western Digital WILL NOT warranty.
