2nd set of drives...in a good way.

  • Excerpt: I have used these drives in a 32 TB Synology NAS for over 2 years and have absolutely no problems. I bought another Synology NAS as we needed more storage space for our HD video files. My first Synology NAS utilizing these drives provided me the confidence to purchase a second NAS.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Versatile

  • 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: We ordered 45 of these to populate a NAS and 5 were not 4TB drives. 4 weren't even WD drives, but were Seagate 500gb drives! All were labeled as 4TB Western Digital drives!

Solid Performer

Robert V. Sigillito, Amazon
19 December 2014
  • 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.

  • Summary: Bought one DOA. Not sure if it is packaging or the drive itself. But with SSD price dropping like crazy, the end of hard drive is near.
