A LongHaul Drive

Steven H., Newegg
17 October 2013
  • Pros: This is an enterprise grade drive it has the technology for the job. It is quiet and has minimal vibration When I first turned it on Iwas wondering if it was working, because I couldn't hear it or feel any vibration when touching it. It showed up on my monitor, so I knew it was working. The head moves to the outside when not running, eleminating the possibility of damage to the head. It has vibration softing technology and other goodies that should help it to be relai...
  • Cons: The price is a little high, but you generally get what you pay for.

Average Drive

Michael W., Newegg
30 September 2013
  • Pros: This drive functions well, and dropped right into windows 8 without installing any special drivers. I had the correct drivers already installed for my SATA controller (intel based) and it supported hot-swap perfectly.
  • Cons: Performance appears to be the biggest con for this drive depending upon how you look at it. It had extremely high burst rates but quite slow sustained throughput. Depending upon the use this might be an asset.

Western Digital RE Enterprise HDD

Margaret B., Newegg
26 September 2013
  • Summary: If you want to stick a few hard drives together for a local NAS, you might end up with more bang for your buck with the Western Digital Black line of hard drives.
  • Pros: Hard drive install was fine, Windows 7 installed all necessary drivers. After a quick reboot I was in the Windows Disk Management creating a partition.
  • Cons: The only con I would consider would possibly be the price. You could buy two Western Digital Blacks for the same price as a single Western Digital RE Enterprise drive. However it really does comes down to how you plan to use these hard drives. If you are running a cloud service or doing something that moves a lot of data around, then you are likely better served with the Western Digital RE Enterprise drive.

So Far So Good

Ethan R., Newegg
23 July 2013
  • Pros: They seem well constructed and are quiet. I have had no problems initializing them or building an array with them. We purchased 12 of these for a RAID 5 array on one of our low-level database backup SANs and haven't had an issue with any of the 12 thus far. Contrary to the other reviewers, packaging was fine...it may be because we ordered 12 instead of 1 or 2. It actually looked like it was drop-shipped or something because they came double-boxed in custom (non-newegg...
  • Cons: The other reviews of reliability concern me especially because these are for an enterprise SAN and we got the RE4 series for that reason. So far so good though.

Horrible Packaging

Ben S., Newegg
16 May 2013
  • Summary: The way my drives arrived, there were two drives in their own individual boxes in one larger Newegg box. The two smaller boxes are the ones described above. To make matters worse, the smaller boxes were shoved up against the side of the bigger box with NO PACKAGING. So it was essentially a hard drive with two thin layers of cardboard protecting it.
  • Pros: You don't deserve a pro for this horrible packaging.
  • Cons: Horrible, terrible packaging. I realize that I'm ordering a bare OEM drive. But that doesn't mean that Newegg should put in in a box with a piece of bubble wrap. Not wrapped in bubble wrap. Not immibolized in the box by bubble wrap. Loose in the box to bang around unprotected on all sides except the one that the bubble wrap is on. What is their shipping department thinking?!? This is an expensive, precision piece of equipment.

1st DOA second slow and noisy

William A., Newegg
27 March 2013
  • Summary: Second drive runs but makes more noise than it should and is noticeably slower in performance that it should be.
  • Pros: Not much at this point. Regret the purchase.
  • Cons: 1st Drive was drumming its heads from the moment I powered it up... Newegg quickly replaced it for me... or as quick as return ship and wait gets...

No Limited Warranty

Christopher R., Newegg
27 February 2013
  • Summary: I called Western Digital and they claim that these drives are not covered under warranty as they are considered OEM drives.
  • Pros: When it worked it got very good performance.
  • Cons: One of the five drives purchased was defective 40 days after purchase and they absolutely refuse to stand by their warranty.

  • Excerpt: Пара пол года простояла в зеркале в домашнем NAS. Сейчас один перешёл в аварийное состояние - пишет ошибку чтения/записи. При этом SMART никаких ошибок не находит (да и не находил при ежедневной быстрой проверке и еженедельной полной).
  • Cons: очень шумный
