5 out of 5 eggsWD RE are the best

Pros: These drives are a true RAID powerhouse.

I installed two of these as the OS Mirror for my Hyper-V workhorse and haven't looked back. So much faster than what I had before.

Cons: seem to be sold out right now

Other Thoughts: These things are awesome. They are RAID EDITION which means they're designed to connect to a RAID controller and are vibration tolerant for when you have a rack full of them. Sure you can run one standalone, but to really appreciate what you've got requires building an array of them.

1 out of 5 eggsbad blocks

Pros: cheap, free shipping, good combo deal.

Cons: i got two of these and both had bad blocks/sectors from the factory. tried to use the WDC utilities, but it couldn't fix the problem. i would have accepted a few repairable bad blocks.

Other Thoughts: they must have had a bad batch of these as a bunch of others on here are also reporting similar problems. i probably should have talked to WDC directly to get these RMA'd because Newegg just gave me a refund instead of an exchange, so I am out a few dollars for shipping.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works fine, sped things up a bit, good deal at the time.

Cons: A little noisier than other hard drives I've used, but nothing to be concerned about. Doesn't come with SATA cable.

Other Thoughts: Used this to replace an old Samsung 80gb hdd. This was a good deal for what it is. If it were a little quieter it would've received 5 stars. Good deal for the price though.

3 out of 5 eggsBad Sectors Coming Up

Pros: Used it for 2 and half year primarily for mass downloading purpose without any problem.

Cons: Data error (Cyclic Redundancy Check) start coming up recently. I tried to hide the bad sectors using the 'chkdsk' command, but even after that, bad sectors still kept coming up. I will try to fix it using third party disk tools, otherwise I will contact WD for service since it's still under warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HD

Pros: This has been working for three months now, Nothing has gone wrong with it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Shipping says 3 days, which is an estimate. Carrier is responsible for the shipping not Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Worked out-of-the-box. I bought four drives and configured RAID-5. So far everything is running okay.

Cons: None -- I hope these drives lasts long under minimal use.
