4 out of 5 eggsWorks great when it works

This review is from: WD RE WD2000FYYZ 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Good storage option for RAID with cost vs. capacity + warranty.

Cons: originally ordered three of these for a RAID 5 data storage server. one of three was DoA. Too much hat-juggling at work meant the 30 days had gone by and had to go through WD to do a RMA, which was fortunately relatively painless (though they do charge for shipping the dead drive back).

Other Thoughts: The dead drive was kind of strange, because it kept showing up in the BIOS as locked, but the Device Manager couldn't make heads or tails of it, and trying to initialize the thing only brought cryptic error messages. Wrestled with it for a while before giving up and returning. Advice: if you get one of these wacky pseudo dead/ kinda locked drives, save yourself a headache and return it before the 30 days are up.

5 out of 5 eggsRaid Keeps on Rolling

This review is from: WD RE WD2000FYYZ 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I am impressed with how well these drives have been performing., Since the day I received the 4 of them they have been in a raid 5 array and are taxed 24x7 serving as DVR storage. I have two HDHR3 and I love to see if I can max thing out.

Cons: None. They are excellent drives for not being SSD'sc

Other Thoughts: About to setup 4 more in an external Sans Digital TR4M6G and I'm looking forward to benchmarking this configuration (again in raid 5). It'll be nice to have an external drive the crunches the gigs.

4 out of 5 eggsmassive drive

This review is from: WD RE WD2000FYYZ 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Drive is massive. Ok write speeds. Awesome price

Cons: Very Noisy people on here are not kidding at all. Go fire up your old windows 98 system listen to the drive make all the clicking and rattling noise. That's how this drive sounds. This really worried me but It tested ok in every way we shall see it if holds for the length of the warranty

Other Thoughts: The NSA installs unremoveable Malware on all WD drives wish WD would give us a way to remove this.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Hard Drive

This review is from: WD RE WD2000FYYZ 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Reliable. Stress tested all of them and ran extended tests using Western Digital's software. No failures, all performed excellently

Cons: Couple of minor quips.
1) They're noisy.
2) The screw holes on the bottom aren't tapped deep enough to accept a standard length screw. This was a PITA as they were being mounted in trays with tight tolerances in a rackmount NAS and the screws wouldn't seat down all the way making installation of the trays impossible. The old drives were WD RE 1TB, no problems. This was the first (and hopefully the only) time I've ever had to run to *HOME DEPOT* to install a hard drive.

2 out of 5 eggsMight Return

This review is from: WD RE WD2000FYYZ 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Lots of space, read/write speed was about 150MB/s according to HDTune

Cons: This is a very veryyyyy noisynoisy drive when reading and writing to it. On top of that, the drive doesn't support AAM so I can't quiet it down. I'm thinking about returning it because the noise levels are starting to drive me crazy.

4 out of 5 eggsstorage

This review is from: WD RE WD2000FYYZ 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Large capacity, 5yr warranty. It's meant for the long haul, 365 days, 24hrs a day grinding. We're talking data center stuff and if you like at home too. :)

Let your ssd do the fast quick writing back to forth for the os/applications but this thing is for storage and even scratch in raid or non raid.

Cons: None, you should know what you're getting.

2 out of 5 eggsCharged Shipping for Failed Product!!

This review is from: WD RE WD2000FYYZ 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Newegg had what I needed.

Cons: The hard drive I received failed immediately. This was suppose to be a brand new hard drive. Equipment can be faulty but I was charged extra shipping costs to send their failed product back to them so that it could be replaced. Plus, it has taken another 2 weeks for them to process this return and I still have not received the HD. That is not good customer service.

Other Thoughts: I will probably avoid using Newegg in the future.

Manufacturer Response:
