Solid performance at a reasonable price

  • Excerpt: I bought two of these 3TB Western Digital Red NAS drives to install in a new Asustor NAS server I bought at the same time, along with two others I already had. They're installed in a RAID 5 configuration, and I feel very satisfied with my purchase. I've read that the Seagate NAS drives are more reliable, but I've had zero problems with the WD drives (I've had the previous ones going 24/7 for over a year, still no hiccups or bad sectors.

  • Excerpt: I use this WD hardrive as my main storage for video editing and photoshop. It's actually faster than my main hardrive on my computer and so far am totally happy with the performance. It was immediately recognized by my system and after initialization its working great. I will definitely buy another when I run out of space.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet

  • Summary: Love the drives, but kind of annoyed NCIX shipped me Recertified white labeled WD Red EFRX30 drives instead of new ones and then never replied to any emails. it's been over a year and haven't had any problems with the drives.
  • Pros: Excellent quality, long lasting, cool, really great price
  • Cons: Slow rotation speed but that's the way most NAS drives are, NCIX shipped me rectified drives instead of new drives, they never got back to me as to why...

Great in its niche

  • Excerpt: I own 7 of these. Two of them have been RMA'd. The other 5 are labeled NASware 2.0, so I assume they're a later run than the others. I was using the first two in a FreeNAS server along with a mix of other drives from Samsung, Seagate, and WD. I upgraded to a Synology DS1513+ and bought 5 new WD Reds, and they've all been working flawlessly for a few weeks now.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
  • Cons: No Vibration Detection

  • Summary: A am going to say that when you get ones that work then they are great but WD is having a lot of issues with DOA or drives dieing lately so I will just leave it at that.
  • Pros: Great price, decent speeds, better than the Green drives in my WHS
  • Cons: still have a high failure rate

  • Excerpt: Really, these days getting a drive that isn't DOA, formats without problem and operates in your device is good enough. As long as it runs in my NAS without errors for a year, I'll be happ.
