Excellent. Best large capacity for RAID

Heather, B&H Photo
26 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased now 4 of these drives for use in an Adaptec 71605 16-port hardware RAID card. These work excellent in the array. While I can't say for sure whether the WD black drives are superior and more reliable than this one, these have TLER, where the black drives won't let you set that at all and that can be problematic in RAID arrays using dedicated hardware cards.
  • Pros: Durable, Reliable

  • Summary: I don't know where these drives are coming from, but both they shipped me were bad. The first one had a huge number of bad blocks and the second would only format to 1.8 TB.

Great.....if a bit too noisy

MasonStorm, Amazon
20 July 2014
  • Summary: Bought this rather than their Se model since this one is supposed to be heartier and last longer, and it was only about $8 more. But this is easily the noisiest HDD I've purchased in years, a constant source of annoyance since I deploy it in a Synology DiskStation in the Living Room next to the entertainment center. I have a couple of their Se HDDs, which have been quite quiet since they were installed.

  • Summary: But, sadly our disk controller will only see 2TB on the server. It works nicely on new client computers. Fast and a good price.

  • Summary: It is a hard drive! I needed an enterprise class HD! I own a tech business, so a drive is a drive as long as it spins up and can be formatted :)

My First Enterprise-Class Hard Drive

Mark the Photographer, B&H Photo
2 June 2014
  • Excerpt: B&H packaging is PERFECT. It arrives partitioned as MBR (Master Boot Record) Windows 8 will only see 2TB unless you convert it to a GPT (GUID Partition Table) I use AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition it is Free and will make the change for you easily. I have the SanDisk Ultra Plus Solid State Drive with SATA Revision 3.0 Interface for Notebook (256GB) for my OS (Windows 8.1 and Applications) and use this 4TB WD Drive for all my files, Photos, Videos, and...

WD RE are solid drives

ALY, Amazon
11 May 2014
  • Summary: Purchased RE drives for my RAID setup and find them to be fast and reliable. 'RE' along with 'Black Caviar' are my drives of choice when used in a busy system where drive contents have value. Not a quetest drive (you can feel/hear the drive head assembly movement when its working, but I like it, so for me its a plus). Highly recommended.
