These drives are of no value.

  • Summary: These drives are of no value. I tried to register them with Western Digital and they are all out of warranty. The item is advertised to have a five-year warranty but these have none at all. I have many other Western Digital enterprise class drives in service in a number of installations and every one of them does have a five-year warranty and has been registered with Western Digital. I am sending these back and expect a full refund with no shipping charges.

Excellent drive, just make sure the warranty is included

  • Summary: The drive itself is terrific. Although I didn't benchmark it, it positively screams with ~280MB/sec reads in RAID1 when paired with an older 3TB RE on a hardware controller. It would be probably be faster with a matching 4TB drive. The construction looks very good. It is hefty and very solidly built. Note that this is an SAS drive, and requires the appropriate adapter and cables.

  • Excerpt: Быстрота девайса ужасает. Нулевой рейд С606 из 7 дисков читает большой нефрагментированный видеофайл со скоростью 1200Mб/сек. Пишет - 30Мб/сек, привет Билу гейтсу, который, во имя надежности, пришет на диски маленькими блоками с небольшой очередью, что увеличивает надежность записи на медленные диски, но закономерно деградирует скорость записи на нулевые рейды, способные, в моем случае, спокойно переварить 1200 Мб/сек.
  • Pros: Достаточно тихий (хотя с рейдом из 7 дисков о тишине приходится забыть). Надежен. Быстр (см. коммент)
  • Cons: Пока не обнаружено, разве что дороговастенько
