  • Summary: It's second one I've bought from the Amazon Store. Easy to install and works like a champ! I really recommend this drive if you need storage space and work with a lot of multimedia files such as video, audio and photos.

Because replacing failed drives is no fun

Sketch, Amazon
19 August 2014
  • Summary: I ran Barracudas in RAID10 for years, but once they'd start to go I'd be losing a drive every six months or so, and freak out a little, and try to remember how to replace a drive in ZFS. So instead I switched to a Synology box and these puppies (still raid 10), and so far so good. No errors, no problems in ~2 months of spinning 24x7. I'll update the review in another year or so.

  • Summary: I have 20+ of these and they are all running great after 9 months. No DOA and not a single failure. Performance is great in RAID 6 with 16 of these. No issues at all.

Drive works as expected

Pavel, Amazon

  • Summary: Ordered one to expand my NAS, which already had 2 other WD 4 TB models. It didn't pass the SMART test. This is normal - it happens, maybe due to shipment or other factors. This is where Amazon's great return policy comes in handy. I sent that back and asked for a replacement, which I received the next day. The replacement works as expected.

Super fast enterprise nas drives

Wesley, Amazon

  • Summary: Super fast enterprise nas drives, simply said. I can do close to 300MB in a 2012 r2 parity storage pool which is not known for being fast at all.

Good Drive. Great Balance of Cost, Reliability, and Performance.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 July 2014
  • Summary: Great drive! I use the 4TB version of this drive in an external USB 3.0 enclosure for backup and archiving. Zero problems, and it's a good, fast drive. I've bought Western Digital RE (server-grade) drives in the past, and they've been reliable and fast -- but the expense is a bit prohibitive. I appreciate WD coming out with another line that's a bit more cost-effective, while still being a notch above consumer drives on performance and reliability.
