Great if they work

Brian B., Newegg
4 March 2016
  • Pros: They seem fast and reliable.
  • Cons: I ordered 8 of them and 2 were bad out of the box. I didn't install them soon enough to return. So now I guess I have to deal with WD and see what they are willing to do.

Great Enterprise Hard Drive

SOREN S., Newegg
16 September 2015
  • Summary: This is a good hard drive. You pay a premium for the enterprise build and warranty, but it is much less expensive than dealing with data loss.
  • Pros: I have purchased several of these drives in my IT consulting business and have yet to have one fail.
  • Cons: None that I have experienced.

Works as expected (so far)

Worker Dave, B&H Photo
16 September 2015
  • Excerpt: Used two of these to setup a redundant RAID volume, replacing two WD RE 2TB drives that were setup as a stripe 4TB volume. One of the 2TB drives was failing, so we upgraded. Reason for 4 stars was the packaging - the drives were each in their own box, within a larger box, which is good.

Fast, Reliable and Warrantied

David N., Newegg
18 August 2015
  • Pros: These are 5 year warrantied from Western Digital. Fast & Reliable. If you are looking for the manufacturer's warranty you need to buy these drives. The warranty is effective from sale date.
  • Cons: They are mechanical drives that spin. So they will be louder than SSD's.

User Review

9 August 2015
  • Pros: 4T capacity. Fast. SATA II Works in RAID arrays.
  • Cons: For some insane reason the pegs in Cooler Master HAF 932 drive holders do not fit into the threaded holes. It was possible to slightly expand the inner diameter of threading while keeping it functional for regular screw mounting, however this operation can leave specks of aluminum (I used compres...

So-So

Kyle K., Newegg
14 July 2015
  • Summary: If I were to do this again I'd go with the HSGT drives as they have a FAR lower failure rate per Backblaze.
  • Pros: Performance is on par with other drives.
  • Cons: I have 11 of these installed in a QNAP NAS box, 1 is a hot spare. I've had 3 of them die in the last year. MUCH higher failure rate than other drives.
