3 out of 5 eggsTest First - then RMA

This review is from: WD Re 4TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD4001FYYG

Pros: WD name

Cons: 5 Drives out of 12 Ordered were BAD, right out of the box.

Smart Errors, Health warnings, relocated sectors.

Mickey mouse WD-Testing software.

Other Thoughts: Almost %50 failure rate - right out of the gate.

Guess they aren't testing these "Enterprise Grade" drives.

Confidence fell off of a cliff. Time to look at Sea gate.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive

This review is from: WD Re 4TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD4001FYYG

Pros: Has SAS onboard
Fast
Surprisingly not that loud at all

Cons: Being a SAS drive, it comes with a price
Does run hot...you definitely need airflow on top for these.

Other Thoughts: Will be buying 24 for these for a home NAS (Yes, complete overkill for a home NAS). I bought two of these and just barely got them running since yesterday. So far they've survived two extended tests using Western Digital's Lifeguard testing utility. I will let them idle for a week and run another extended test before committing them to the server.

It runs inside of 24 bay Super Micro Chassis.

2 out of 5 eggsWD 4TB Enterprise Drive

This review is from: WD Re 4TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD4001FYYG

Pros: Capacity, warranty and warranty service.

Cons: We bought 3 of these in Jan. 2015. 2 to be used in a mirror and the 3rd as a spare. One was DOA and was replaced immediately by Newegg. The second of the original drives failed in early May 2015. This also replaced under warranty by Western Digital but we had to pay to ship it back, this is normal with most manufacturers. This is a very disappointing experience for what are labeled "Enterprise" drives. We will not be using them in any type of environment where we need to count on their performance and reliability.

Other Thoughts: We have used WD in the past but now the quality seems to have been lost based on the experience to date with these drives. Fortunately, we had only used the drives in minor testing environments and this is where they will stay

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Storage Drives

This review is from: WD Re 4TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD4001FYYG

Pros: Great price / high capacity / 5 yr warranty / SAS 6

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: These are great for large storage applications such as archives, backups, or long term storage.

Note - 7.2K drivers are not ideal for running high demand applications.

5 out of 5 eggsTerrific drives. SAS backplane only!

This review is from: WD Re 4TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD4001FYYG

Pros: These are good, solid, reliable drives, backed with a good warranty.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Be aware that these use SFF-8484 connectors, and you'll need the same. If you have a SAS backplane, chances are good that you do. If you have a SATA backplane or SATA card/cables, you do not. If you are using forward-fanout SAS cables, you might, but probably don't.

4 out of 5 eggsNewegg Shipping

This review is from: WD Re 4TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD4001FYYG

Pros: Large, Nice Price for Enterprise Class SAS, Fast.
Great reliable drive!

Cons: Orderd 8 from newegg. 1 DOA 2nd died within a week. I believe its because of newegg packaging and shipping.

I ordered 32 of this exact same model from C-D-W and none of them have had any issues and they were packaged much better.

2 out of 5 eggsNot reliable

This review is from: WD Re 4TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD4001FYYG

Pros: Nice to have 4TB on one drive. Definitely makes the datacenter seem "smaller".

Cons: Purchased 5 of these for a backup appliance. 2 were DoA and 1 more just failed less than a month after being installed.

Other Thoughts: Discontinued already... I'm not surprised.

5 out of 5 eggsExpectations met....so far

This review is from: WD Re 4TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD4001FYYG

Pros: We have sixty of these in a very large array. After about 2 weeks hammering them with tons of I/O to burn them in, no problems.

Cons: Price, but actually not very high at all considering what a vendor like Dell, IBM or HP would sell these at...way north of 1K
