So far so good

  • Summary: Works for what I wanted
  • Pros: Runs nice and cool. Uses with external 4 drive enclose (Mediasonic HF2-SU3S2 3.5) for a photo / video backup. Doesn't get a ton of use, but hasn't had any issues so far. I run 2 of these and mirror them for redundancy in case one fails.
  • Cons: slower than my blacks, but these are for backup only.

Bad News, Good News

  • Summary: If these appeal to you, consider going "red". Everything you see here but faster and more robust. (I always wanted to use that word)
  • Pros: I've had six of these for about two years. They are solid and efficient, as promised.I use them in a Sans Digital RAID box without a hitch. Till someone knocked the box over. OUCH! I tried to replace with same but no dice. They are discontinued... Look at the "Red" series. Everything you get here...
  • Cons: They cannot survive a 2 foot drop while running. There... happy?

  • Summary: Packing was adequate for carrier, & product arrived apparently OK. However, packing might not have been adequate to survive my local USPS, which can---& routinely does!---destroy anything not "defensively" packaged. I suggest more paranoid packing! :-)
  • Pros: Great selection, product as ordered, arrived timely,
  • Cons: n/a

Works as a UNIX file system

Keith S., Newegg
28 July 2013
  • Pros: Drive is formatted as a UNIX File System used in a small server for backups. Speed is not important as backups take place by a cron job in the middle of the night. Nice large capacity at a reasonable price.
  • Cons: I see some bad reviews, but remember that this is not a 15K RPM Serial Attached SCSI drive.
