Summary: I purchased 9 of these drives for an 8-disk Synology NAS (one was intended as a spare). In the 13 months we've had these "enterprise" drives in production, 4 of them have failed - dropping lots of sectors and failing SMART tests. I'm quite convinced the remaining drives will fail in the near future, leaving me with lots of remanufactured, warranty replaced drives that will probably also fail (based on past experiences).
Summary: I have had this drive for more than one month now. I have found it dependable and will handle the work I throw at it. I am using it in an external enclosure (from OWC) attached to my MacBook Pro 15" Retina (mid 2014) to store video from my Canon XA-10 (on one partition) and to process the video using Final Cut Pro X on another partition.
