Ralph Montague "R. Montague", Amazon

  • Summary: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Western Digital makes the best hard drives around (IBM and Hitachi used to; I say USED to because I have not purchase these brands in ages.) Drives are very fast. I needed extra storage. EVEN though Seagate JUST introduced an 8TB (YES! that is EIGHT TERABYTE) drive for under $300.00 (I think the MSRP is $250.00) HIGHLY RECOMMEND Western Digital Products.

Top-notch hard drive, stellar warranty

Wyoming Kid, B&H Photo
7 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I've been using Western Digital enterprise-class drives in various RAID arrays, for many years. I'm currently running five WD 4TB Re WD4000FYYZ drives in R5 on a Synology DS1813+; four WD 2TB RE4-GP WD2002FYPS drives in R5 and four WD 300GB VelociRaptors WD3000HFLS in R0, in external enclosures. The latter eight drives have been spinning, non-stop for well over five years. The only problem encountered was the failure of one VelociRaptor (full backups preserved the data).
  • Pros: Easy to use, Fast, High Capacity, Quiet, Reliable, Solid 5-year Warranty

4TB TB WD RE SATA 3.5" Hard Drive by WD

Dr_b_, B&H Photo
1 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Best compromise between storage capacity and price and reliability Until SSDs get this big and are this cheap, HD's are the way to go for secondary and nearline storage needs. WD enterprise drives are usable in normal desktops and are backed up by a 5 year warranty.
  • Pros: High Capacity, Quiet

Large capacity but a high failure rate.

G. Lowe, Amazon
16 November 2014
  • Summary: Bought these to upgrade the capacity of a video surveillance system at work. The system was running 9 3TB drives and we needed more capacity due to changing retention requirements. The only reason that I am not giving it 5 stars is that we had 3 drives fail. After installing 6 drives the 7th would not boot. It was returned and the replacement only ran for an hour before failing. That drive was returned and the replacement functioned for less than a day before failing.

So far so good and very fast

J. Baker "cute & curvy!", Amazon

  • Summary: So far so good and very fast! I am a photographer with an exponentially growing collection of image files. I had outgrown my 2TB drive and needed to move up quickly. I just added it to the JBOD array I have in an external USB3 SATA box.
