4 out of 5 eggschoked before warranty expiration

Pros: 5 yr warranty, fast, quite

Cons: It died (effectively) at 4.25 yrs old. Called Western Digital support and they're sending me a 450GB VelociRaptor to replace it. Oh no!

Other Thoughts: At faulty disk diagnosis I was concerned about WD quality, but now I have no issues whatsoever with WD product and support. Nothing is perfect, but WD stands behind their product and that makes me a loyal patron of Western Digital.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT

Pros: Thanks WD.
These are a good buy for Great drives. The pair were up and running in no time. I don't understand some of the comments on the noise. These are quiet.

5 yr Warranty

Cons: Should have bought two more.

Other Thoughts: I did not realise these drives also came with legacy power connections. That really helped.

1 out of 5 eggsBad hardware and instructions

Pros: good materials for case

Cons: Poor browser interface and set up procdure. Very poor documentation. Reset button did not work. Machine does not work when left on for extended period. Finally died.

Other Thoughts: I am sending it back for refund. Company seems picky about returns. I will see if they stand behind their warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SATA drive

Pros: Drive runs very quiet on my machine which runs almost 24/7. Very fast, easy to install and up and running in no time.

Cons: Haven't found any yet.

Other Thoughts: This is a great drive for those of you who have system without SATA and looking to make the jump.

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet, Cool, but small

Pros: This whisper quiet, low heat, speedy hard drive is great for desktops and workstations using hardware RAID and even onboard RAID systems. The extra cash of the RE get you a 5 year warranty and more reliable hardware, perfect for those of us who don't want to fork over the extra cash for raptors (or simply want more space).

Cons: Not RE2 (RE2 drivers have longer MTFB, support NXQ, and are larger). Not really this drives fault; it's just starting to show it's age.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sold on the "TLER" hype that WD promotes this drive with; but if you want hot plug support and other features found in more expensive systems, this is for you.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: So far so good. Very fast and quiet. Used for backup storage with Vantec Nexstar 3 enclosure. Takes 5 minutes to attach to enclosure and maybe 20 min max to format. Then, ready to rock and roll.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: none
