Worked ok for 2 years - then crashed

GailH, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought this WD5000AAKS 2 years ago. Has been working fine, until two weeks ago, The Windows system started intermittently issuing events 9, 11 and 51 (parity errors on disk drive). I neglected replacing that disk then (I didn't understand which disk drive it was - the PC has 3 drives). Now the system can't read that disk, at all.

It was OK -

  • Summary: Arrived in good order and was well packed. I think for the price there should have been mounting hardware (4 screws) and a spec sheet. Drive was easy to install and worked well.

Noiser than CPU fans

Shaoxuan Zhang "Shaoxuan Zhang", Amazon

  • Summary: The performance is OK. It's hot. Its vibration is too much and cause the whole case to resonant vibrate. That makes lots of noise, bigger than all fans in my case.

Acceptabel

  • Summary: Tyst och snabb. Jag har kört fyra stycken i RAID-5 dygnet runt i ett år nu utan tillstymmelse till problem. SMART-informationen är i topp. Uppdatering: Alla diskarna höll på att krascha eftersom de tydligen tycker om att parkera huvudena väldigt fort. Detta är mycket dåligt om man kör dem dygnet runt. Man kan konfigurera om dem med wdidle för att undvika detta problem. Googla för mer info.
